Hamilton By Design have been offering a first class service for more than 25+ years when it comes to Structural drafting services.
Over the years Structural Drafting tools have moved on from line base tools or programs to solid models which offer options in terms of analysing designs prior to detailing and or fabrication.
Our team have developed in house process of automating the production of steel engineering and structural steel drawings as well as other facets of steel engineering design and fabrication processes.
So why is it that there is still a large sector of steel fabricators and engineering companies that are still working with 30 year old technology if remaining on 2D Cad, if it works for them and you been making money why change?
At Hamilton By Design we take a different view we want to stay in front of the technology wave or we prefer to surf the technology wave we harness its power to drive our engineering solutions further.
Traditionally structural drafting is the ability of combining and Architects dream and an Engineer's structural design calculations and design sketches into manufacturable drawings. Structural drawings are the bridge between an Architect, Engineer and a steel fabricator.
Structural drawings typically start from rudimentary hand sketches that are associated with structural design calculations, which are in accordance with local and national building codes. It is from such sketches that presentation quality structural drawings are created.
In general terms for any given structural project the contract drawings could be drafted by a range of different persons, such as the Structural Engineer or the steel fabricator both could performed the structural drafting work. At Hamilton By Design we have the last in solid modelling design tools that can cost effectively produce the drafting details in an efficient manner.
Professional structural drawings produced by Hamilton By Design have a certain look and feel to them, which is called line work. This professionalism has been pasted on from one mentor to the student and when we look back at all the fabulous mentors that have pasted forward the knowhow and we are thankfully for the opportunity that we have been given.
