Where a complete design and construct solution is not required, Akura has the versatility to provide our clients with customised lock-up packages.
By engaging a qualified design and construct team to complete your lock-up build, you are guaranteed quality products and workmanship for a superior building foundation. The fact we manufacture our own precast concrete panels and structural steel, means that we have the ability to streamline and simplify the construction process.

What is the lock-up stage in constructing a building?
The lock-up stage refers to the point in time where a building can effectively be ‘locked up’. This is normally when all the windows and exterior doors are on.
Building to lock-up generally includes managing the pre-construction phase (for instance taking care of the DA application, acquiring a Construction Certificate, engineering etc), the completion of footings, laying the slab, installation of structural steel, completing the roofing and cladding and finally installing windows and doors inclusive of roller doors etc.
All remaining works are the responsibility of the building owner.
This approach can be less expensive for someone in a position to complete the works themselves while ensuring the foundation is completed by qualified builders for a quality outcome.
Lock-up packages aren’t for everyone. Where lock-up packages don’t meet the requirements of your project, a complete design and construct solution may be the best route. This ensures that your building is managed from inception through to completion by the same team.
Because our packages are customisable based on your project requirements, the lock-up package can include anything. However, generally speaking the standard package includes:
- Management of pre-construction requirements
- Structural Steel
- Precast Panels
