How Structural CAD Drafting and Revit Modeling Outsourcing Serves Structural Engineering
Structural engineers are looking for any possible way to save costs. Structural CAD drafting and Revit modeling outsourcing is the main way by which they can obviously lower their costs if they can find qualified partners with correct methods.
Structural engineering generally includes structural design, structural analysis and structural drafting. The most value-added work for structural engineers is structural design - deciding systems, locations and rough sizes of structural elements, such as footings, columns, beams, floors. Since this type of work requires a lot of experience and interaction with clients (owners or architects), structural engineers should focus on it by their own instead of outsourcing. Needless to say, structural engineers are willing to design by themselves or design in-house by their own employees.
Structural analysis (and calculation)
Unlike structural design and analysis, structural drafting involves a lot of repeating work and has plenty of margins to save costs for structural engineers. Structural drafting is a general saying. Actually, it could be structural CAD drafting, structural Revit modeling, or any application in other graphic software. If structural engineers work on structural CAD drafting or structural Revit modeling by themselves, it would be a waste of time unless the projects are very small. They should focus on graphic quality control, building code application and construction cost control and let their structural CAD drafting or structural Revit modeling outsourcing partners to deal with the arduous structural drafting work.
How does structural CAD drafting and Revit modeling outsourcing work better for structural engineers?
Firstly, both parties should work together to conquer the geographic difference by checking emails frequently and being responsive to each other.
Secondly, structural drafting outsourcing companies should fully understand their clients’ graphic standards, and make sure their output should be exactly like what is produced by their clients. Go-by sets provided by structural engineers would be very helpful for structural drafting outsourcing companies to learn their clients’ graphic standards quickly.
Last but not least, training is always helpful whether structural engineers train structural drafting outsourcing companies or structural drafting outsourcing companies train themselves. The training could be in any form, but both parties should find a suitable way that work for both of them.
