At Steel Structures Limited, engineering is
All personnel from technician level upwards
are equipped with computers which are networked to a complete
'Management Information System'. In addition to this, all
Project Coordinators and Draughtsmen (as well as senior personnel)
are also connected to each other via a separate network. This
ensures the fast flow of information both vertically and horizontally
across the whole company.
Our engineering design section is one of the
most technologically advanced in East & Central Africa.
Designs can be carried out using the latest specialized structural
analysis/design software available in the market today. Features
such as advanced 'elastic-plastic analysis' of steel frames
utilise the properties of steel to the limit, resulting in
the the most economic designs possible. Structural analysis,
design, drafting and detailing can be fully integrated thus
providing a very economic and effective solution to all projects,
large and small.
Buildings with high engineering complexity,
that would otherwise involve large amounts of time, can be
easily and quickly designed with the added advantage of incorporating
any changes virtually immediately.
Our Drawing Office is one of the most impressive
departments in the country. Our network of Computer Aided
Design (CAD) workstations permits the generation of fast,
accurate, and neat technical drawings (approval drawings,
workshop (fabrication) details and erection drawings) that
can be very quickly modified.
