An early delivery for steel detailing: TSI Structures

Advance Steel and BIM collaboration help steel fabricator deliver a hospital’s new maternity unit on time.

“The Advance Steel software’s ease of use, speed of modeling and connection design, and integrated design checks on the fly—combined with the ability to reuse the structural engineer’s Revit model—helped us reduce our anticipated schedule time by approximately 20 percent.”

—Adrian Betts, Drawing Office Manager, TSI Structures

90% reduction in rework time on complex projects

Advance Steel detailing software helps Topsfield, Massachusetts-based Lawton Welding reduce rework time on complicated projects such as The Lucas—an 80,000-square-foot development in Boston’s South End.

"Before, I would get frantic phone calls from my install crews when changes were needed. In [Advance Steel], you make the change, and everything automatically moves with it. It’s a much cleaner process. It’s night and day."

—Derek Michaud, detailing supervisor at Lawton Welding Co., Inc.

Museum island in Abu Dhabi: Waagner-Biro (Austria)

Vienna-based steel and glass construction company uses Advance Steel software to build a dome-shaped outpost of France’s famous Louvre in the UAE.
