A structured approach that dramatically increases efficiency
Integrated Design Detailing is a methodology that accelerates construction by developing detailed fabrication 3d models when the structure is being designed by structural engineers.
This approach yields savings on costs and reductions on schedules.
A typical project worked under Integrated Design Detailing can be completed at 30% to 40% of the time it would be required under traditional detailing that starts after the fabrication contract has been awarded.
The Engineering company that holds the design contract deals directly with us, we start working when design is about 50%, in this way it is possible to have accurate material reports and detailed erection diagrams at the bidding stage.
When a fabricator is selected, we customized drawings to the fabricator standards and released a custom fabrication package.
Integrated Design Detailing brings benefits for the overall project
Improvements on schedules
Accurate fabrication quotes
Accurate construction quotes
See how Integrated Design Detailing improves schedules
As we said before, starting steel detailing early causes a huge positive impact on the project schedule among other key project indicators,
See below a typical schedule for a 200 tons project, comparing Integrated design Detailing, a design-build approach, with traditional Steel Detailing that starts when the fabricator has been selected and the fabrication contract awarded.
Integrated Design Detailing delivers benefits for project stakeholders
Anticipated revenue generation as the building can be built sooner
More accurate quotes from contractors, as quotes are based on actual material reports and erection drawings
Significant improvements on project schedule.
Steel RFIs are managed and resolved during design phase
Control of the detailing Contract
No delays resolving issues when the design drawings have been released to fabricators.
Improvement in quotes accuracy due to complete information regarding materials
Other disciplines can use the model to accommodate mechanical, electrical and plumbing components
Improvements on schedules results in lower costs
Quotes can be more accurate and competitive as they are based on actual constructible model and bill of materials
It is no necessary to manage RFIs for detailing
Fabrication can start after 5 days the contract is awarded, faster delivery means more business
