Our engineering services extends to undertaking design and build projects, with detailing works being undertaken by our in-house Engineering Department.

All projects that B&B undertake are managed by our project teams with all structural steelwork to be supplied by the company being fully modelled by our in-house CAD Technicians using Tekla Structures software specially configured for the structural steelwork industry.

The modelling process and use of the Tekla Structures software is actively promoted by our business as the optimum means by which to

  • Maximise the use of the time available to the project as a whole during itís early stages
  • Introduce alternative beneficial working practices as opposed to the traditional methods reliant upon the interchange of drawings and RFIs/TQs (Request For Information/Technical Queries) which can slow down determining the structural details/layouts, which can sometimes prolong the approval process and frustrate the fabrication process.
  • Present structural models to the Clientís Design Team to enable the resolution of any design issues and early agreement to be reached with regards the scope of works to be supplied and assure delivery of the erected frame in accordance with the construction schedule.
  • Encourage the early participation of other trade contractors in the model review process to determine and incorporate any details to the fabricated steelwork which may prove of benefit to the project.
  • Maximise the use of electronic data available from the model to nest and procure materials and utilise NC data for fabrication purposes.
  • Develop closer working relationships with our Clientís and Designers to promote the expertise available within the Company and to realise a long term working relationship based upon trust and reliability.
