IDS can work on your design build project, ensuring that project delivery is collaborative, solution-oriented, and integrative. Early involvement allows us to streamline the entire steel detailing and connection design process, leading to early release IFF drawings and eplans that are not only timely but accurate. Thanks to our design and construction system, the speed of implementation will be accelerated, as the number of requests to RFI will be reduced.
Over the years, IDS has perfected the design build process. Early engagement allows us to eliminate many of the unknowns that arise in traditional bid projects. Working as a team with the owner, architect, engineer of record, construction manager, steel fabricator, and steel erector from the outset creates open communication and a speedy workflow. We often begin detailing the steel when the design isn’t even complete, ensuring that steel fabrication and erection can begin as soon as possible. Our process includes:
As we’ve perfected the process over the years, we have been able to deliver consistent, dependable results that are largely error-free. Our results include fabrication drawings and erection plans that are unique to each fabrication shop and erector’s requirements and allow for fast and reliable fit-up in the field.
