    With years of experience resolving construction difficulties through our manufacturing expertise, Bromsgrove Steel provides design assistance and connection design, with these advisory offerings furthered by our detailing capacity.

    Detailing is a crucial step in the initial design of steel structures; the preparation of drawings and plans for structures bridges the gap between architects and structural engineers, and the manufacturing of steel members.

    Bromsgrove Steel’s extensive experience working in conjunction with architects, structural engineers, and builders on site helped us attain the knowledge to provide detailing for all types of steel structures.

    Why is steel detailing important?

    Steel detailing is an important bridge between architectural concepts and the fabrication of a structure. It provides detailed drawings which are closely followed by manufacturers to ensure the structure works regarding dimensions, material, connections, finishes, and other factors. This allows for a streamlined manufacturing and erection process, regardless of the size or complexity of the structure.

    What is steel detailing used for?

    Steel detailing can be used to assist the manufacturing of structural steel, architectural steelwork, balustrades and handrail systems, stairs, floors and platforms, amongst other structures.

    What are the codes and standards for detailing?

    The relevant UK codes and standards which must be taken into consideration when detailing include the 10 Structural Eurocodes:

    • EN 1990 Eurocode: Basis of structural design
    • EN 1991 Eurocode 1: Actions on structures
    • EN 1992 Eurocode 2: Design of concrete structures
    • EN 1993 Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures
    • EN 1994 Eurocode 4: Design of composite steel and concrete structures
    • EN 1995 Eurocode 5: Design of timber structures
    • EN 1996 Eurocode 6: Design of masonry structures
    • EN 1997 Eurocode 7: Geotechnical design
    • EN 1998 Eurocode 8: Design of structures for earthquake resistance
    • EN 1999 Eurocode 9: Design of Aluminium Structures

    Structural Design and Detailing

    Bromsgrove Steel provides site surveys and measurements to establish the specifications of an individual project. Following this, we provide drawings for approval, as generated by CAD facilities and our detailing capacity. Once these drawings have been approved by clients, the experienced engineers at Bromsgrove Steel will closely follow the outlined specifications to provide an end product optimised for its application. To do so, Bromsgrove Steel supplies a full fabrication process, from initial cutting procedures, to welding and finishing operations.

    Our services do not end here; Bromsgrove Steel further offers transportation of products to site - ensuring a careful and timely delivery. Our onsite team holds the relevant CSCS and CPCS accreditations to install and erect structures if so desired by our clients.

    Bromsgrove Steel can provide our extensive manufacturing service nationwide. We do this for residential, commercial, and industrial applications, providing steel frames for buildings, as well as additional features - both bespoke and standardised. These may include ingress and egress features such as stairs and ladders, handrail systems and balustrades, steel fencing, gates, and doors, and bespoke structures.
