Lgsfdesign offers a wide range of structural engineering design services for cold-formed steel framing. Architects, engineers, general contractors, and framing contractors obtain greater insight into their projects with Lgsfdesign on their team. Lgsfdesign offers Comprehensive Shop Drawings and Advanced BIM Shop Drawing & Estimation Packages. Lgsfdesign is comprised of the industry's most knowledgeable, trusted team of CFS design experts to support Shop Drawing and BIM projects.
As well as our standard services which cover design light gauge steel frame, LGSFDESIGN can also offer consultancy services to assist both clients and contractors with any light gauge steel frame queries. We can assist at the very outset of schemes right through to their conclusion offering consultancy on all aspects of light steel framing at any stage of the project.
At tender stage, we perform a technical appraisal of the scheme and this will generally include an indicative mark up based on architectural details provided, façade design and in load bearing options a detailed mark-up identifying the loadbearing elements we have incorporated within the design. These can then be incorporated as part of an installer's tender submission.
Lgsfdesign will engineer, and design bespoke systems, to provide cost effective solutions to the unique conditions that often prevail on site. Full detailed construction drawings can be provided.
A full set of calculations, sections and details are provided along with elevations and plans that show every CFS element within the building.
Coordinated with the project team (Architects, Structural Engineers, Main Contractors and Other Trades) drawings are provided for approval, amended and then issued as a construction pack to the installer.
In order to provide the required drawings a full set of architects sections, elevations, plans and details will be required in dwg and pdf format. We would require a 3D model of the primary structure in .ifc / SKP files if available.
From this the design process will take between 1 day to one week to achieve construction status drawings in a phased approach dependant on project size.
