CSD Group Australia Pty Ltd (CSD Group) services the construction industry from early design works all the way through to on-site solutions, offering cost saving and precision enhancing solutions to every process.
CSD Group’s full range of specialised services are offered under CSD BIM, CSD Drafting, CSD Engineering and CSD Site. The Group consists of professionals with a combined over 100 years expertise on building information modelling (BIM) management, steel detailing, concrete detailing, 3D scanning, laser assisted site set-out, engineering assistance, drone inspection and time lapse photography. The Tekla Structures 3D software is used to ensure a high level of accuracy on its drawings.
Based in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, CSD Group has handled major infrastructure projects across the marine, commercial, materials handling and resource industries in Australia, Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea.
CSD Group is led by its Managing Director Michael Williams, whose over 16-year work experience include stints in the United Kingdom and Australia. Going up the ranks from being a Tekla draftsman working on London’s iconic buildings, Michael then moved to the Gold Coast to work as a steel detailer for a local-based company. He eventually played a pivotal role in revamping the company’s operations by reinventing Quality Assurance (QA) systems, innovating material management systems, transportation assistance packages, customisable reports, among others, using Tekla solutions. He likewise led the integration of new cloud servers, which enabled the synchronised operation of multiple international offices. Michael’s significant contribution helped propel the company to the forefront of the industry.
In 2013, Michael set out to establish his own company, Complete Steel Detailing Pty Ltd (CSD), originally as a Tekla Structures drawing office. The company was backed by a professional team with solid training and experience not only in steel detailing but also other aspects of construction management utilising BIM and Trimble site products.
In 2017, CSD was renamed CSD Group Australia Pty Ltd to highlight its broad range of construction solutions. Its operations are supported by impeccable QA systems, innovative and customisable reporting and high quality steel detailing using Tekla Structures. Its client support systems are anchored on BIM and our own hosted cloud systems.
