Important of Top Steel Detailing Industry

Structural steel detailing is a critical process of structural engineering and demands near 99% accuracy. Even a tiny error can lead to a loss of valuable time and money. Structural sheds detailing is an important and mandatory process in all types of manufacturing and construction activities, such as the erection of residential and commercial buildings, factories, and institutes, as well as shipbuilding. The process of steel detailing is a vital ‘communications link’ that connects key professionals such as engineers, architects, contractors, fabricators, and others – all of whom are individually and collectively responsible for the highest levels of accuracy at each stage.


Steel detailing involves the creation of detailed drawings for fabricators and contractors and includes plans and estimates, as well as other reports and important tasks. The process involves two main types of drawings – shop drawings and erection drawings.


Shop drawings or detailed drawings specify every minuscule detail of an individual steel piece or component (columns, beams, joists, trusses, braces, etc.) that needs to be made by a steel fabricator. Such drawings include material specifications, component sizes and dimensions, surface specs, welding, bolting and painting details, and all other information pertaining to the fabrication of each component. These drawings are relevant to fabrications only and do not include details about the erection and installation of the steel components.

Erection drawings portray dimensioned plans and specify the location of each steel component within the overall structure. These drawings include detailed and specific information about the position of each component, the requirements for installing them, and all the associated fieldwork such as installing bolts, wedge anchors, and welding spots. Steel detailing services also include other important stages such as reinforcing steel detailing, anchor setting plans, steel design, connectivity diagrams, shop bolt summary, and BoM (Bill of Materials).
