Reinforcement Detailing

When designing reinforced concrete structures, Structural Engineers specify the size and spacing of bars required in concrete to achieve the required performance. However contractors often require detailed drawings showing the length, size, shape and reference number for every bar plus schedules to allow the bars to be bent and cut offsite and ordered in. SD Structures can offer this as an additional service.

SD are successfully pioneering the use of 3D reinforcement details created in our drawing package. This has many benefits over traditional 2D drawings including:

  • Greater confidence of fit onsite,
  • Automated schedules mean less risk of human error,
  • Bar setting out is shown graphically as well as traditionally meaning less mistakes are made onsite.
