Steel Detailing

SOMAR Steel Detailing
utilizes the latest in 3D modeling software. These systems allow for seamless imports into your material management software, such as, Fabtrol, FabSuite, EJE, Steel 2000, Go Data, etc. In addition, it supports a wide range of post processors compatible with most CNC machines including Peddinghaus, ESAB, Vernet, Kaltenbach, Ficep, Mesher Greacham etc. These imports substantially reduce time and improve efficiency throughout the production process.

Structural & Miscellaneous Steel Services

SOMAR Steel Detailing provides a comprehensive range of structural steel services.

Including the following:
  • Advanced Bill of Materials (ABM)
  • Erection Sequencing
  • Anchor Bolt Plans
  • Structural and Miscellaneous Steel Detailing
  • Steel Connection Design
  • BIM Modeling
  • Steel Estimation (MTO)
  • Project Management
  • NC & Material Management Imports
  • Structural Design Services
During the initial phase we establish detailing standards utilizing the customer’s existing standards and then tailoring those standards for accurate import files and drawing presentation. Establishing these protocols allows for consistent shop drawings, time and time again.

RFI’s are not just written, but are written with proposed solutions. Our detailing staff collaborates with the fabricator to provide solutions that are economical for the fabricator and erector. In most cases we provide a “snapshot” of the model to mitigate the design issue.

Our philosophy at SOMAR is to be an innovator in the steel detailing industry by utilizing the latest technology and “Know How” to provide our clients with products and services. Our background is Fabrication & Erection then Detailing.

Project Experience
Our structural & miscellaneous steel project experience includes:
  • High Rises
  • Complex Commercial Buildings
  • Industrial Petro Chemical Refineries
  • Museums
  • Hospitals
  • Churches
  • Paper Mills
  • Shopping Centers
  • Bridges
  • Pipe Racks
BIM Modeling Services
Our BIM services include:
  • BIM Setup Process establishes project specific protocols to insure model sharing guidelines are met. Outlining 3D modeling requirements and assigning responsibilities for each team member.  
  • Modeling in Tekla in conjunction with Revit, ArchiCAD, Constructor (Vico) and NavisWorks.
  • Pre Design/Detailing works with the architects and engineers team in the design stage. We import the engineer’s analysis model into our 3D modeling software, Tekla Structures. This allows us the work directly with the engineer and resolves any design issues, while dramatically reducing time spent on information request. This process streamlines the design/detail process and in some cases, bill of materials as well as shop drawings are ready at time of project award.   
  • Revision and Change Order Management allows the design team and site management to identify and react to changes in a timely manner as well as providing backup documentation.
  • Clash and Conflict Detection by importing data into a common modeling space and performing a clash check. Each instance of clashing is tracked and workable solutions are implemented in a manner not to interfere with project flow.
