A few months ago our resident 3D Studio MAX guy (Jared) came up with this little video to show the transition from design to detailing.
It shows in a creative way, what us Steel Detailers do with the design information developed by Engineers and Architects.
It could be construed as the IPD evolution, when in fact, the process is the same whether there is early engagement of detailers or not.
The difference being, with IPD there are added benefits like:
- Early delivery of Shop dwgs.
- Early delivery of material reports for pre ordering of steel.
- Get the best results for a project by all project participants collaborating early.
- Early delivery of fabricated steel to site.
- A win win for all involved, especially the owner who would get the building built earlier.
