Anderson Steel’s quality detail fabrication and erection drawings are the backbone of the steel construction industry; they are a road map utilized by project managers, steel fabricators and erectors and can greatly affect the profitability of any project.

We are fully experienced in direct request for information (RFI) co-ordination between engineers, designers and builders. We have all the facilities in house to complete detail fabrication and erection drawings as well as outsource any overflow. Using fully licensed SDS2 detailing software our detail fabrication and erection drawing services comply with AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction). Our software program enables the project to be drawn in 3 dimensions, which is beneficial during the structural engineering and design review process.

Detail fabrication and erection drawing process – contract award → commencement of modelling → issue of drawings for structural engineers and design consultants review → review of drawings by structural engineer and General Contractor → issue of approved drawings for fabrication and erection.

Anderson Steel has a virtually paperless office where all information is electronically stored for each project. Off-site backups are run daily, thus providing near continuous data protection. This ensures that there is no data loss, or down time. Electronic updates on work and digital drafting details for projects are readily available. We have experience in delivering detail fabrication and erection drawings to multiple projects at any one time. Our customer support strategy ensures there is good communication with clients and the construction team throughout modelling, fabrication and erection.

Our standard set of detailed fabrication and erection drawings include 3-D model, fabrication drawings for all steel members, component drawings for all steel connections, DXF template files for all plates, NC cam data files for automatic processing machinery, materials list, steel purlin schedule and bolt list. All materials data is transferred to our in-house nesting system to generate materials reports for procurement and cutting purposes to minimize waste. All documents and drawings are supplied by email or an FTP site in “DWG” or “PDF” format – drawings can be provided in batches for various phases of a project.
