Revision Zero commenced operation in 2013, with a small but very experienced team. The success of Revision Zero created the need for Revision Zero to keep expanding to, at times, a team of well over one hundred.
These days, Revision Zero has maintained its client’s repeat business through excellent customer service and high-quality product deliverables. To do this, we ensured the management team had diverse skills and experience. We combine expatriate and local experienced team members, with a mix of age and youth thrown in.
Revision Zero’s production office is based in Manila, The Philippines. The company has been structured to utilize the large pool of local detailers blended with an expatriate management team to provide a lower-cost solution without compromising quality, security, and technical experience.
With a company representative based full-time in Australia and an expatriate management team based in Manila, we can ensure projects are managed and delivered smoothly and with complete transparency.
With a team that hovers around the one hundred-mark, Revision Zero has a diverse team with backgrounds in Steel Fabrication, Steel Detailing, Structural Engineering, Engineering Management, Construction, and Project Management, and thereby well placed to be able to assist our clients to deliver a successful, cost-effective outcome across all stages of a project.

Maria Quilang - Project Manager
Maria graduated as an Architecture Student in 2013. Study was not easy for Maria as she did not have the financial support that others are fortunate to have. This did not stop Maria, and through sheer grit and determination by way of working and studying full time supported herself through to graduation. This determination did not go unnoticed. It was a prominent international company that jump-started her career in detailing by starting her in their training and mentorship programme.
Revision Zero in 2016 was fortunate that Maria chose to make it the company she wanted to continue her growth and develop the skills to reach her goals. Through Maria’s determination and inquisitiveness, she became passionate about delivering projects on time and always led the team to apply Revision Zero’s standards and procedures with a quality of work that her team can be proud of.

Fregelito Maglalang - Project Manager
Fregelito graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Nursing, but through a twist of fate, he did not end up following a career in Nursing but instead found himself as a trainee Steel Detailer. This must have been his calling as he thrived in the coming years, progressing from Trainee to “scrubbing” drawings and then eventually becoming a BIM modeler.
In 2018, Revision Zero was fortunate to have Fregelito join the team. Initially, he was tasked with BIM Modelling and Shop Detailing, however, it become apparent quite early on that he showed such enthusiasm in his chosen career, and that coupled with the respect given by his team members Fregelito needed a shot at becoming a Lead Detailer. It was in 2022, that the need arose for a Project Manager to be promoted through the team. Project Managers for whom Fregelito had been the Lead Detailer were very quick to nominate him and thus he was promoted into the role.
Fregelito has always shown a high sense of morality and fairness to those around him. As a Project Manager, he strives to ensure that his obligations to the client, his projects, and Revision Zero are met. It is though in his role as a mentor and teammate that he can really express his personality. The term Gentleman often is heard in the same sentence as the name Fregelito.
