Steel Structure Detailing

The accurate steel structure detailing of drawings is essential to the success of any steel project. Even a tiny error can lead to the loss of valuable time and money. The process of steel detailing is a vital link between all the key professionals involved in the job.

That is why B&T’s detailing department makes use of Tekla Structures. Tekla Structures is a visual 3D modelling package that provides the most accurate and integrated way to manage detailing of all the steel structures we design and erect. Our structural design team is capable of getting to the bottom of complex design issues and arriving at inspired solutions that have a positive and innovative impact on all our projects

Tekla makes use of an open BIM (Building Information Modelling) approach, which allows us to integrate Tekla with our other production planning systems, ensuring delays are avoided and the right steel elements are always delivered and erected on time. Our knowledge, expertise and experience in steel structural detailing guarantees on-time deliveries and significant cost savings.

Focus on accuracy
Essentially we create a detailed 3D structure of your steel structure – whether it is a shed or a stadium. This method is extremely accurate since it allows us to inspect the steelwork before it is fabricated. It also creates a better understanding of the project and allows for smooth co-ordination between different departments and contractors working on the structure.

Our erection drawings portray detailed dimensioned plans and specify the location of each steel component within your overall structure, the requirements for installing them and all the associated field work such as installing bolts, wedge anchors and welding spots.

Optimum efficiency
We spend a lot of time and effort with our steel structure detailing as we believe that time put up front in the planning stages of every structural project always results in a superior workflow, cost efficiencies and timely meeting of all deadlines. With the use of Tekla structures we provide you with the following lists:


  • Assembly Part Lists
  • Bolt Assembly List
  • Ordering Lists
  • Bolt Lists (Complete and per assembly)
  • Drawing Transmittal Lists
