Structural Steel

We have detailed tens of thousands of tons of steel; we retain registered professional Structural Engineers on staff as well as steel detailers.  We utilize the latest version of the following software packages, including:

  • Structural Finite Element Analysis
    • Inventor Professional
    • RAM Structural Analysis (Pre-stressed Concrete Structures)
  • RAM Structural Analysis (Steel and Concrete)
    • RISA 3D
    • Robot Structural Analysis Professional
  • Design Software
    • AutoCAD
    • Revit (BIM)
    • Tekla Structures (Structural Steel Shop Drawings)

On all structural steel design projects, we provide the final steel shop drawings using Tekla Structures. With this software, we can produce detailed steel assembly, fabrication and part drawings of each steel member. We also provide a complete material list, center of gravity, weight of each steel member or assembly for a complete bid packages that are ready to fabricate. This eliminates the need to have steel fabricators prepare detailed shop drawings which would otherwise have added to the cost and schedule of a project.


Mechanical Steel

We provide detailing services for mechanical steel, providing appropriate information to fabricators to reduce costs and eliminate the need for fabricators to prepare such drawings.


Pipe Spools

M3 is equipped to provide spool drawings for fabrication for complex piping arrangements.
