Role of Structural Detailers for Construction firms

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Structural steel detailing creates detailed drawings for steel erectors and fabricators, including drawings, plans, estimates, reports and other required documents for the erection and manufacture of steel members.

 Structural steel detailing touches on a variety of steel members including, but not limited to steel beams, columns, trusses, braces, handrails, joists, metal decking and even stairs.

Structural steel detailing usually deals with two types of drawings, erection and shop drawings. Steel detailing touching on erection drawings help show the steel erector the proper way and place to place fabricated steel members, and includes detailed information and requirements on all processes involved like bolting, putting in wedge anchors or welding.

Structural steel detailing dealing with shop drawings, on the other hand, are used to determine the requirements for manufacturing each steel member and are mainly used by steel fabricators to manufacture these members. It shows member specifications, materials required, sizes, dimensions and other information needed.
