MINING / INDUSTRIAL DESIGN & DRAFTING
Our industrial team have vast experience within the mining & fabrication industry. The team can help you with your design, drafting, redline markups, fabrication/ construction & project management needs. From conceptual design, visualization (virtual & augmented reality) through to full consultancy management (structural, civil, hydraulic, electrical, mechanical & more) & construction documentation our team can lead the way throughout the design process.
Once designed CEADS will provide tender management services to find you the best fabricator/builder for your project. Once selected we will oversee the construction by providing project management to ensure the construction is as per planned, on time & within budget.
Safety in design and construction is our number one priority. We have experience across multiple industrial sites and have the capability to work in with required site standards.
At CEADS we are more than designers we are a full turn key solution for any industrial or mining project you have

SKETCH & CONCEPTUAL DESIGN
Bringing ideas to life! Conceptual design are the perfect product to gain comments from stakeholders, board members & the team. The concept design is an important visualisation of multiple ideas creating a picture to clearly define the design direction.
One stop shop! We have a large network of consultants including surveyors, geotechnical, structural, civil, hydraulic, electrical, mechanical engineers. We can engage and manage any consultants that your project may require.
CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION & CERTIFICATION
Construction documentation provides detailed information for a builder or contractors to carry out construction works from. In some instances structural engineering or other specialised consultants may be required. This work is integrated within our construction documentation to ensure that the builder has the required detail to carry out the project.
We have a large network of builders and fabricators that are able to complete any project from a small lifting arrangement through to a plant upgrade. We can tender manage your project and find you the most suitable and best money for value builder/fabricator.
Once the concept design is finalised and the engineering certification is in its time for fabrication drawings. Our office is able to prepare shop drawings from plate profiles, structural steel, through to complex chute arrangements! We have the ability
to produce fabrication drawings for your projects.
DRAWING REGISTER/ REDLINE MARK UPS/ DRAFTING MARK UPS
Our team are able to mark up your existing CAD drawings from your red line drawings. We can also organise your existing drawings and produce drawing registers with a corresponding filing structure. We are able to do this remotely or on site!
3D RENDERS & VIRTUAL/ AUGMENTED REALITY
Our in house rendering team are able to produce life like render images and videos for any project or product you may need. Renders are the perfect tool to sell your product prior to construction or production! Our office has the latest virtual reality software and equipment that allows us to import our 3D models & scenes creating a fully immersive virtual experience and the ultimate proof of concept. Virtual reality is a great tool however if you are not able to make it into our office
,augmented reality is able to give a similar virtual experience whether your at home, in the office or out on site. With augmented reality you are immersed in a digital model which enables you to inspect your concept prior to construction.
SAFETY IN DESIGN
As part of our obligation under the WHS Act and Regulations 2011 CEADS will analyse designs and prepare safe design reports for all projects. These reports look at reducing and where possible removing hazards throughout demolition, construction, maintenance and in-use stages. We believe in a safe working environment and we strive to ensure this carries on through to the worksites on our projects.
01. INITIAL MEETING
All projects large or small begin with an initial meeting. This meeting allows us to get to know you (the client) and what you are looking for in your design.
Goal: To obtain a detailed brief from the client to allow us to begin the project with as much detail as possible.
Potential Scope of Works - Design research - Initial meeting - Design brief recorded in meeting minutes -Design ideas & input for overall design - Fee proposal and scope of works outlined
Considerations - Potential planning/approval issues - Safety and end user requirements - Transport -Staging and future requirements on site
02. SITE INVESTIGATION
After we have been engaged by the client we will perform a site investigation inspection and a site measure if there are any existing structures on site or involved in the design
Goal: To determine any issues with the site in regards to existing structure & infrastructure
Potential Scope of Works - Site Visit including measure up & photos - Planning research - Council searches ‐ Infrastructure - Report compiling all of the above information
Considerations - Location of the proposed development - Existing infrastructure & buildings
03. CONCEPT DESIGN
The conceptual design is where we use our site measurements/ notes and the client brief to put our and the clients ideas onto paper.
Goal: Provide a set of drawings to enable the client to fully visualise and understand the proposal. These drawings will allow the client to source feedback from the project stakeholders
Potential Scope of Works - Site plan/ site layout - Floor plan/s showing layout - Elevations - Sections - 3D Views
Considerations - Client requested amendments - Any improvements to the design
After we have received conceptual approval the design can move forward to detailed design. More often than not this will involve external consultants.
Goal: Engage and manage a group of engineers throughout their entire design process to ensure we have a team of consultants moving in the same direction and meeting allocated deadlines.
Potential Scope of Works - Set timeframes and deadlines for all consultants - Provide CAD drawings and information to all consultants - Provide client with weekly updates on progress - Present Preliminaries to client for approval - Present finals to client
Considerations - Potential delays - Potential clashes between engineering (i.e. structural & mechanical clashes)
At tender stage we will compile all of our documentation, the consultants documentation and prepare specifications & scope of works so that a builder/ fabricator can provide accurate pricing to complete the project.
Goal: Produce a set of documents so builders can accurately provide a fee proposal. Then manage the entire tender process
Potential Scope of Works - Produce the model based from the consultants documents - Prepare drawings to standard that fabricators/ builders can tender from - Prepare a specification with details on finishes/ fixtures and specific clauses - Pre tender, selecting tender method, call for tenderers (private of public) - Answering information requests from tenderers - Assisting client in selection of building
Considerations - Best value for money fee proposal - Best tenderer based on experience, reputation, timings & cost
CONSTRUCTION/ FABRICATION/ SHOP DRAWINGS
06. CONSTRUCTION/ FABRICATION/ SHOP DRAWINGS
Once we have selected a fabricator/builder we will meet with them and the client to discuss any changes to the overall design. Once the final documents are approved we will issue for construction
Goal: Produce a set of documents ready for construction and to gain any approvals
Potential Scope of Works - Produce construction drawings to a standard that can be built from - Obtain required approvals
Considerations - Compliance with NCC and relevant Australian standards
