WHY BW STRUCTURAL SERVICES?

We know firsthand how important it is to choose well-qualified subcontractors who have the capability and work ethic to provide timely solutions to complex, fast-paced construction challenges. With 70 years of experience in the structural steel industry, BW Structural Services has the knowledge and skill required to bridge the problem-causing gap between design and shop drawings.

BW Structural Services’ expertise in structural steel detailing, fabrication and project management will ensure your structural products are delivered on time, accurately and completely. By contracting BWSS for your structural steel needs, you gain access to an increasingly hard-to-find, highly-trained staff of steel professionals, utilizing the most advanced steel detailing software available. The unique ability to merge expert steel detailers and project managers with state-of-the-art detailing software elevates BW Structural Services above the competition.

ATTENTION GENERAL CONTRACTORS

The steel shop drawing preparation process is typically delayed until the steel fabricator is awarded. By contracting BWSS to work directly with the project engineer, you’ll gain three multidimensional advantages.

1. Create a seamless transition from design drawing to working shop drawings; avoiding connection design conflicts and clashes with other trades.


2. Save significant down time while bids/contracts are negotiated and virtually eliminate the time consuming approval process.


3. Ensure the most competitive pricing and delivery schedules possible.
