Paradigm’s Structural Detailing team has been in operation since 2009. In the earlier years this team was assisting the structural design team for preparation of general arrangement drawings and fabrication drawings (Workshop drawings) as and when needed by the design department. We were then using the software, STRUCAD. Now the team exclusively details using the software, TEKLA( Previously XSTEEL).
Since 2012, the team have been taking up Steel Detailing Services from external clients. The team now has a dedicated strength of Ten(10) members, including Checkers, CAD Engineers, Drafters and Project Managers. In case of additional load on the man power, the team draws people from the Engineering department.
The Engineering department also assists the Detailing team in Connection Design calculations etc.

Teams work simultaneously on the project model to bring down turn around times
Standards
& quality
We work on the principle of matching the quality of major companies in our business but with significantly lower prices.
The Structural Steel Detailing, Connection Design and Checking are done as per American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC) standards for commercial and Industrial structures. The team has also expertise in Indian Standards, British Standards and Euro Code requirements for Steel Detailing and Construction.
This team also undergoes the quality audits for the company’s ISO 9001
certification. Every Structural steel shop drawing goes out to the customer only after the specified quality checks are done. Hard copies of drawings are taken for manual checking.

Pricing
Upon receipt of the design drawings from the customer, we are able to provide a quote for our services either based on the tonnage of Structural
Steel involved ( as Steel workshops are comfortable with) or on the basis of man hours required for detailing and preparation of fabrication drawings. We can also provide along with the quote, a fast 3D line model of the structure for easy visualisation of the complexities in the structure, if any.

Quotes based on tonnage or man-hours

Output in native TEKLA formats, Autocad formats or PDF files based on your preference We also provide a 3D model of the structure in Acrobat 3D format to customers who do not have TEKLA software.
