Design & Detail Drawing

Design & Detail Drawing

The structural steelwork industry is a high pressure environment facing ever greater challenges due to shorter lead-times requiring a pro-active and collaborative response, SDM Fabrication Limited utilises the very latest in 3-D modelling and design analysis software providing us with the ability to fully integrate with clients individual design teams effectively managing detailing, fabrication and erection of all steel structures including commercial, residential, retail, industrial, stadia, local authority, government and military buildings.

Accurate material and parts listings automatically generated from the completed model are lotted to suit site deliveries and erection programmes enabling the sourcing of materials on a just-in time basis to coincide perfectly with our production schedules.

Integration is further extended into the fabrication and construction operation with issues seamlessly passed to the production floor allowing components to be routed directly to the correct CNC machine where data produced by the modelling software is used to automatically process individual members before being passed to assembly and welding bays which utilise accurate detail drawings produced from the project model. Our site teams maintain direct links to our detailers and have access to individual models ensuring that clarification of complex connection details and installation queries can be easily and quickly determined.
