Design

DST’s design department is also based at the fabrication facility in Lancaster, UK. 

The department possesses a wealth of experience to ensure the customer is provided with a suitable solution. Using industry-leading design software (Autodesk Advance Steel) and analysis software (Super-stress) DST can ensure customers receive the most suitable structural steelwork solution available. Customers can be assured that staff members have been externally trained by Graitec on the use of Advance Steel software and all designs are certified. 

Advance Steel is specifically designed for steel professionals who require a 3D structural steel detailing software for drawing production. This steel detailing software automates the entire structural CAD process (fabrication, erection drawings, and several reports) and creates NC fabrication data.

All drawings produced are compatible to Level 3 BIM and can be exported in multiple formats.

All designs can be underwritten with structural calculation packages from DST’s Structural Engineering partner. These packages can be used to identify suitability of section sizes and provide lifting and connection details.
