Structural Steel for Silverstone Experience

Our Client

Based in Cannock, our client, the fabricator was appointed to create new steel work to support an existing structure at Silverstone race track.

The building will be used as a museum to display the heritage of racing at Silverstone. The existing structure is more than 73 meters long and 37 meters wide. With the additional new steels it will be substantially bigger.

Our Service

Our scope of works was to produce a full set of fabrication drawings for the new steel work required. There was a huge range of drawings from the existing steel work. From architects and structural engineers. The steel work that was already there had to be measured and checked to make sure all of the new steels would fit.  A lot of collaboration between many parties.

Our Output

Based on the 3D CAD Model we produced a wide range of General Assembly drawings for approval. The GAs drawings show 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 drawings were 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
