5D reinforcement detailing and Building Information Modelling (BIM) to eliminate waste and accelerate construction

Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Our investment in proprietary 5D AutoCAD software means you can rely on the correct steel to be delivered at the right time with minimal material waste.

The level of detail we put into our Design for Manufacturing & Assembly (DfMA) modelling ensures that all your material fits together perfectly - no onsite trimming or cutting required - no matter how complex your project.

We help you build faster with less waste.

Our steel reinforcement detailing helps you:

1. Identify steel reinforcing elements to be prefabricated off-site;

2. Detect material and embedment clashes through the creation of a 3D model;

3. Produce time analysis of reinforcement construction sequences (4D);

4. Provide cost certainty of steel reinforcing elements from early design to the concrete pour (5D).


We can help you design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA) by providing steel reinforcement estimating services.

AUSREO's engineers are skilled in identifying manufacturing methods, such as prefabrication, that will increase speed, reduce costs, and improve site safety.

Once the engineering drawings are approved for construction, we work with you to estimate the most cost effective way to deliver your project.

Marking Plans / Site Documentation

We detail, model and schedule steel reinforcing elements to give you peace of mind that your structure will be built as designed.

Our professional schedulers have engineering backgrounds and are skilled in modelling complex structures using our unique 5D Auto CAD software.

The scheduling team take pride in finding ways to help you improve build speed and minimise waste.

Pod Slab Packages

To save you time and money, we can supply reinforcing / waffle pod packages for your project.

Our estimators will provide you with a Bill of Quantities (BoQ) and square metre rate for M and H class soil types.

Packages include:
– Reinforcing mesh & bar
– Polystyrene waffle pods
– Spacers
– Polythene building film
– PVC joining tape
– Tie wire
– Scrap bags
– Pod tie down with net
– Trench mesh
– Ligatures


Getting the steel delivered in the most efficient way is critical when pouring concrete.

We work with you and your steel fixers to determine the safest and most productive delivery method for your site.

For example, we delivered the reinforcing steel pre-slung on a hiab truck to speed up the fixing process and eliminate people climbing on top of the truck to unload. On another project we used a system of flat racks for steel delivery to improve productivity.

Hot Dipped Galvanizing

AUSREO supply galvanized reinforcing steel bar and mesh to Australian Standard AS4534.

Galvanised reinforcement is typically used for seawalls, jetties, pontoons, offshore structures, coastal bridges and roads.
