In the last decade, steel detailing business witnesses a completely new set of competitive challenges.
Enlisted are some of the challenges faced by steel detailing companies:
- Projects are required to be delivered – quickly and at lower costs
- Increased practice, of course for betterment, has scattered the AEC professionals
- Hiring qualified detailers, due to the shortage of skilled labor for that matter
- BIM prerequisites for acquiring new businesses, or migration to BIM – building information modeling, but model-based steel detailing proves really costly.
Steel fabricators and erectors, across steel detailing industry, are opting for model-based detailing solutions; and offshore steel detailing service providers deliver high precision structural detailing drawings to manage material orders right from pre-detailing phase using Tekla and Xsteel. Information-rich model-based workflows, prepared by expert structural steel detailing services, include libraries of materials, components, sections, and all this with inbuilt standards and codes from across the globe to suffice project requirements.
Efficient model-based steel detailing of:
- Bracings, side rails, roofs, common frames
- Canopy steel detailing
- Deck detailing
- Fabrication shop drawings
- Fence detailing
- Folded plates
- Metal detailing
- Post-tension detailing
- Precast detailing
- Reinforced concrete detailing
- Stair handrail detailing
- Staircase detailing
- Steel members detailing
- Steelworks like railings, ladders, and stairs
- Welded, tapered and curved beams
Benefits of outsourcing Structural Steel Detailing:
Best outsourcing structural steel detailers generate shop drawings, generate arrangement drawings and assembly drawings too. These drawings created with help of Tekla and Xsteel, are customized as per client and project requirements. Off-shore steel detailers with hands-on experience accommodate changes even during structural steel detailing process. They update the model and all other deliverables, from shop drawings to NC data, get updated automatically.
A model-based approach, with help of Tekla, enables steel detailers to reduce redundant data by eliminating errors. It results in reduced waste in fabrication shops as well as the fields; the information derived and used is from a consistent information-rich steel model. Steel detailers also ensure to integrate material information to keep project information up to date.
Model-based steel detailing approach goes well with BIM workflow as well. Steel fabricators can use 3D models to collaborate with the architects and designers more efficiently and effectively. In absence of manual recreation of data – the risk of errors reduces considerably.
With help of interoperability, steel detailing service providers import 3D models from structural engineers as a starting point of their CAD steel detailing. It helps in comparing the original models with the updated ones. They alert every stakeholder about the creation, modification, and deletion of any and every structural member. Furthermore, steel detailers export BIM ready 3D models to facilitate project coordination. The ability to minimize rework, due to changes made by design teams, has so far been the best interoperability advantage.
