Intelligent Steel offers a complete design solution, from technical appraisals at planning stage, to value engineering and full scheme design.

We can offer advice on frame application, achieving U-values, acoustics, roofing systems, flooring systems and cladding/rainscreen systems.

The output of our highly experienced in-house design team is approved by qualified structural and chartered engineers, and checked against feedback from our manufacturing team.

Our approach is collaborative and we are happy to attend client design meetings from pre-planning right up to installation.

We use Tekla Structures software for CAD/CAM modelling and analysis. This exports 3D Industry Foundation Class (IFC) files, which are widely compatible with BIM software across the industry, detailed GA drawings which include but not limited to, sections, elevations, details as well as any interfaces with concrete or structural steel elements. The files directly control our state-of-the-art roll-forming machines, ensuring pinpoint accuracy in production.

We’ve designed several innovative products, which are now industry-leading, such as integrated edge protection which enables scaffold-less erection.

We are Tekla award winners.
