Structural Drafting in Sydney

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. 

Structral Drafting

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.

Sydney Drafting Structural

Sydney Structural Drafting

Structural steel detailing is a critical piece in the fabrication or structural steel manufacturing process. Failure to shape this piece with all the correct information can lead to rework lost man-hours on site or at the fabrication factory not to mention cost and scheduling of lifting machinery.

As Structural steel is the skeleton system of a building be it residential, industrial, or commercial and yet Structural steel detailing is not limited to buildings, it can be found in mining infrastructure, shipbuilding and mechanical machinery.

The process of steel detailing establishes crucial communication between all stakeholders such as engineers, architects, contractors, and fabricators. This communication ensures all components of the building or project come together seamlessly.

In relation to the steel detailing process, each professional is entrusted with specific responsibilities. The structural engineer ensures the design, strength and integrity of the erected steel structures.

The architect, on the other hand, must make sure that the structure complies with the major plan dimensions and the building codes of the location. Finally, the detailer is responsible for getting the steel detailing drawings approved by the structural engineer and the architect prior to release for fabrication.

Structural Detail Drawings

Because of its important role in structural engineering, steel detailing requires near 100% accuracy. A tiny error in calculation or execution can set off a chain reaction of events that can cost a project’s valuable time and money. Steel detailing exists to keep each of the professionals involved in the process as focused and faithful to a building’s blueprints as possible.

Steel detailing revolves around the creation of detailed drawings to be used by fabricators and contractors. The drawings already include plans and estimates for each building, as well as other reports and tasks relevant and crucial for the successful completion of a project.

The steel detailing process includes reinforcing steel detailing, anchor setting plans, steel design, connectivity diagrams, shop bolt summary, and Bill of Material (BoM).

Structural Drawing

In general terms there are two types of drawings involved in structural detailing

  • Detail Drawings, are highly precise and detailed drawings of each steel piece or component to be made by a steel fabricator. They are often made for columns, beams, joints, trusses, braces, and other construction material steel.

    They include material specifications, component sizes and dimensions, surface specs, welding, bolting, and painting details and any other information necessary for the fabrication of each steel component. Since shop drawings are only useful for fabrication purposes, they do not include information about the erection or installation of the individual steel components.
  • Erection drawings, on the other hand, display plans in dimension and locate each steel component within the overall structure. These drawings include information about the positioning of each component, their installation requirements, and the installation of other components that hold the steel component in place (bolts, wedge anchors, and welding spots, for example).
