Structural Steel Frame for a residential house

Our Client

Our client is a fabricator based in Cambridgeshire. They were appointed to fabricate and erect a frame for a two story detached house. The design of the house was very contemporary due to the setting of the building. The roof alone consisted of 4 pitches.

Our Service

Our scope of works was to produce structural steel fabrication drawings. From the architectural drawings in conjunction with the detail from the structural engineer we produced a 3D CAD Model using Autodesk Advance Steel. The architectural drawings were used for setting out the beams and columns. The structural engineers drawings were used for beam sizing and connection design. The challenge of this project was the 4 roof pitches. Using multiple pitches results in using compound angle for the beams and non-standard beam to beam connections.

 

Our Output

Based on the 3D CAD Model we produced a General Assembly drawing for approval. The GA drawings shows all the beam location and sizes. Further, our GA drawings show all the connection details. This allows the architect and structural engineer to understand our design fully and comment/approve.

Once approval of the GA drawing was given, we produced the fabrication pack. The fabrication pack consisted of:

  1. General Assembly Drawing issued for construction. This drawing includes all relevant views (Plan, Elevation, Iso metric) with dimensions and beam numbers
  2. Assembly Drawing for welding
  3. Single Part Plate drawings for laser cutting
  4. Material List
  5. Bolt & Anchor List
  6. Erection Bolt List (bolt list assorted to each beam)
  7. NC & DXF files for pre-cutting
