In today’s modern world, it’s impossible to look around without seeing a building or structure that’s made of steel. This isn’t really surprising since steel has become one of the most ubiquitous materials due to its durability, pliability, and strength. However, these characteristics alone are not enough to ensure the sturdiness and longevity of a steel framework. Before these can be achieved, there should first be a design that will allow the building to withstand weight and pressure and last for a long time.
This is what we’re here for at Cad Crowd. We have a team of structural engineers who can help you design a steel framework for your building or non-building structures, ensuring that can withstand earthquakes, strong winds, heavy foot traffic, and other forces. Once you give the green light to the design, our team of steel structure detailing freelancers will take over to create detailed drawings for your steel fabricator and erector.
There are usually two sets of drawings involved in the detailing process. The first set is called the shop drawings, which instruct steel fabricators on how they should manufacture and assemble the steel members or parts. Shop drawings should contain not just the material specifications for each member but also its size, dimensions, bolting and welding requirements, and other critical information that fabricators need.
The second set is called the erection drawings, which instruct steel erectors on how they should put together the steel members on the construction site. These drawings should pinpoint the exact location of each member as well as how the parts should be connected to each other by bolting, welding, and other processes.
Both shop drawings and erection drawings should be detailed and highly informative to minimize human errors and eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming rework. Because of this, many entrepreneurs decide to hire freelance steel structure detailing experts from Cad Crowd. By doing this, they won’t only have experienced contractors who’ll provide them with high-quality drawings, but they’ll also free up their schedule and have more time to focus on their business. As an added bonus, they’ll get to save a substantial amount of money since hiring freelancers is a lot cheaper than working with a traditional steel detailing firm.
