If you are in the process of designing a home, chances are you will need to include steel in the architectural design and building process. If this is the case, you will also need to include steel detailing in your building drawings. There are many reasons why you might need steel detailing in a project, including the design of staircases, ladders, balconies, platforms and structural frames for houses.

It is important to note that steel detailing is an imperative part of any project which requires steel in the building process. Moreover, steel detailing must be done correctly to ensure that everything built will be structurally sound. Here are some reasons why you should use a consultancy for all of your steel detailing needs.

It will save you money

If you are running an architectural design firm or any other business which regularly requires steel detailing, it could cost you thousands of pounds to create an in-house service. For example, you would not only need to invest in expensive equipment (such as CAD), but you would also need to hire professionals to work at a high standard.

By outsourcing your steel detailing needs to a consultancy, you can save yourself a huge amount of time and money.

It will be quality detailing

If you rely on in-house consultants to work on your steel detailing requirements, you may not be getting as good quality renders as you may need. If you outsource your work to a specialist steel detailing consultancy, you can be assured that the people working on your project will be professionally trained in the subject and will therefore be able to complete high-quality work.

It will save you time

By outsourcing your steel detailing, you will be able to free up time to work on other projects. Meanwhile, you can also relax knowing that the work is being completed by a team of dedicated professionals who are using the latest technology to create the perfect design for your project.

Picking the right consultancy

Although there are many benefits of hiring a structural steel drawing company, it can be difficult to pick the right one. Here are some tips on you can pick the right consultancy for your needs.

Research different companies

The first step to choosing the right steel detailing consultancy is to do some research. There are several different companies out there that specialise in this kind of work, so it is important to take some time looking at the websites of some of the top companies, such as Restoric Design.

Check out their portfolio

A solid indicator of any fabrication company’s capabilities is its portfolio. This information should be readily available and should help you decide on whether they are the right firm for you. If you can’t find the company’s portfolio anywhere, this should call into question why they are hiding information from prospective clients. Openness and honesty are integral parts of any business interaction.

Speak to their past clients

Once you have narrowed down your search, the final step should be to check reviews and speak to previous clients. Although portfolios will give you a good sense of the company’s work, speaking to other clients will help you understand whether the consultancy can produce quality work on time.
