Structural Steel Detailing



"Engineering is a form of ART and has filled the world with things of obvious visual BEAUTY, but also with subtle forms." -LOUIS BROWN-

VLE Draughting is an ambitious company, specializing in structural steel detailing. VLE was formed in 2014 by Wayne Page (Senior Structural Detailer), with over 10 years of experience and knowledge gained in the steel industry.  Prior to detailing, Wayne worked as a Boilermaker in workshop and on-site, developing the skills to understand the requirements needed from both manufacturing and construction point of view.  With our boundless avidity for structural design and detailing, and extensive technical abilities, we are dedicated to deliver high-quality, effective and informative steel detailed drawings.

Our software, Advance Steel is built on the AutoCAD platform, and offers a large library of intelligent parametric structural elements, steel connections and plate-work that helps with the acceleration of design and detailing of projects.  Ready-to-use parametric connections, which automatically adapts to member sizes.  Commands to create complex sheet metal designs with unfolded shop drawings, complete with folded line, bending direction, folded angles and dimensions.  A centralized document management system that enables us to visually track files.  Interoperability with Revit, AutoCAD Plant 3D, Navisworks, Robot Structural Analysis and MIS software applications such as FabTrol and StruMIS, (also includes FabSuite, Steel Projects, EJE and Advance Workshop).
