We use Tekla structures software exclusively for the customer’s detailing needs. This allows us to go beyond drawings and produce CNC files, fabtrol files, IFC exports or imports, and complete material and bolt lists that we tailor specifically for the customer’s shop.

We provide a multitude of services such as shop and erection drawings for new projects and checking services for existing projects. We also create models for fabricators and detailers that wish to produce their own shop and erection drawings. We can even work together at project bid time to create a model for material list and estimation purposes, and this allows us to have a head start on the detailing process once the project is awarded.

Several joist fabricators, such as Canam and New Millennium Building Systems, have created tools for modeling in joist for joist cut list and joist erection drawings. We use these tools inside of Tekla so we can accurately see the project and any potential conflicts between the joist, steel, and concrete. This also gives us a higher quality erection drawing and the ability to expedite models to joist fabricators.

We also have ADconX for connection design calculations for your project if calculations are required. ADconX is a new tool that interfaces within Tekla Structures. It can check the design of most shear connections and print out calculations for review by the fabricator's engineer.
