Working together with detailer to make best of steel shop drawings Working together with detailer to make best of steel shop drawings Presentation Transcript

  • By FCGAB
  • Learn how good interactions among contractor or fabricators and drafters on shop drawings can lead to fruitful steel structures design. Construction documents don’t offer adequate and prices information about the design of steel structures. Fabricators, engineers and architects demand something like elaborated shop drawings to understand the details of every individual steel component. This calls the need for a steel detailer who is familiar and experienced in creating these drawings with accuracy.
  • However, as a contractor, you must make your own efforts to ensure that you get desired shop drawings at the end. Learn how you and the detailer you hire can achieve this goal by establishing good mutual understanding and association. Does the Detailer Communicate? First of all, make sure that the individual or the company you hire for Steel Shop Drawings considers communication as an important part of the process. They should be accessible whenever you need to resolve any queries. Ask beforehand whether they offer regular feedbacks and what procedure they employ for project feedback.
  •  Standard Terminology Shop drawings establish extremely useful communication among fabricators, engineers and contractors. For this, it is important that the detailer follows the standard terminology for Steel Detailing, modelation, modeling and for all types of specifications. Confirm it in advance that the detailer is familiar with the standards followed in your region.
  •  Sample Submittal Asking for a sample submittal from the detailer can definitely help your engineers and sub-contractors to begin their process simultaneously. A submittal can help these professionals to decide on types of materials, patterns, colors and other important aspects even before the shop drawings are complete. Not only will it save time, but can also help in keeping everything at place.
  •  Number of Copies for Review Completed shop drawings are required by different experts working on the steel structures design and projects for review and approval. It is a good idea to convey in advance to the detailer how many copies you expect. Inspection copies and field copies must be distributed to the contractor, supplier, consulting engineer and architect to obtain reviews, get revisions done and to reach the final approval.
  •  Compatible Technology If you have outsourced the work of shop drawings to a company located in some other region, it is very important that you arrange for technology compatible with what the company follows. For example, if the detailer uses Auto CAD software in the process, you can get it installed on your computers as well for better understanding of the final specifications. Also decide whether the files will be exchanged via emails, secure FTP or in CDs.
  • Accurate Steel Shop Drawings are the precursor to successful steel structure design and they can be obtained from good understanding between contractors and detailers.
