Structural Drafting

A crucial phase in the process of designing and constructing buildings and other structures, structural drafting services and steel drafting services involve developing detailed plans and specifications during the structural design phase which can be transformed into precise technical drawings and documents. Essential for accurately conveying the design intent to project stakeholders and for obtaining approvals and permits, global firms that outsource drafting services to XS CAD receive precise structural steel drafting, structural design drafting, CAD design and drafting services, structural engineering drawings and other structural engineering services.

Certain relevant aspects of the structural drafting services we provide for structural design firms include:

Detailed drawings: Detailed structural drawings of a building’s total structural elements, including steel detailing, foundations, beams, columns, floors, roofs and other supporting elements

Technical standards: Structural drawings, structural steel drafting and structural design drafting created according to global technical standards and conventions, ensuring clarity, precision and uniformity with the relevant use of symbols, notation and drawing techniques

Incorporating specifications: Preparing specifications that describe the materials, dimensions and installation processes of structural components, such as in steel detailing, structural steel drafting and structural design drafting

Collaboration: Working closely with structural consultants and architects so that the structural drawings, structural engineering drawings and structural engineering services accurately represent the design intent and comply with all relevant codes and regulations

Computer-aided design (CAD): Using 2D CAD drafting services to create highly accurate and detailed digital steel detailing, structural drawings, CAD drafting services and 3D models

Compliance: Adhering to local and national building codes and standards across the world, ensuring the structure’s safety, functionality and legal compliance with accurate structural engineering drawings, structural engineering services and CAD design and drafting services

Facilities management: Keeping a permanent record of the actual completed project for maintenance, renovation and reference with precise CAD drafting services

Critical during the construction process, structural drafting, structural engineering drawings and structural engineering services help transform conceptual designs into practical, usable blueprints to help guide the actual building process. Advances in technology and the capabilities to outsource drafting services has improved the efficiency and precision of CAD drafting services, considerably enhancing the quality and efficiency of structural design and construction.

Supporting 2D CAD drafting services comprehensively throughout all design stages, such as Concept Design, Design Development and Construction Documentation, global structural design firms can outsource drafting services to us for detailed engineering drawings and Revit structural detailing as part of the best services being offered in the drafting industry.

Spanning initial planning stages to final execution, the outsourced drafting services and CAD design and drafting services we provide include valuable expertise, experience and creativity for firms outsourcing 2D CAD drafting services using BIM Architecture, AutoCAD 3D Architecture, Revit Architecture and ArchiCAD.
