Consistent crossframe design lowers fabrication costs.
Economical Steel Designs
Added value service from High Steel can reduce project costs.
The engineering staff at High Steel routinely assists the industry by reviewing steel designs, making suggestions that will cut fabrication and shipping costs. This assistance is useful to consultants during the design phase of the project and also to contractors as they consider developing alternate superstructure designs during the construction bidding process.
We also work with project teams on projects using design-build and Public Private Partnership delivery methods.
Our most common inquiries include questions about material availiability, economic design details, the use of high performance steel, maximum shipping dimensions and help with budget pricing.
A case in point: High Steel recently provided a detail for a large tub girder job that allowed all the welds to be made without rolling the tubs in the shops, a substantial cost savings.
We've built a number of online tools into our site to assist you, such as Project Pricing and our Shipping Advisor. We also suggest you read over our list of Frequently Asked Questions, and visit the NSBA's newly updated Steel Bridge Design Handbook.
