Structural Rebar Detailing Services by United-BIM

Rebar Detailing & Modeling Services

We provide structural rebar modeling and rebar detailing services for all the structural rebar connections and reinforcements at LOD 400 as per the company and industry standards.

Our BIM model provides accurate rebar shop drawings for easy rebar installation and placement of the reinforcement at the site with accuracy.

We Provide Rebar Detailing Services and Estimation at Competitive Rate and Quick Turnaround Time.

We understand the different types of requirements in our rebar detailing services, which include, bending shapes, description, quantity, and laps of the reinforcement steel, and its dimensions.

We produce rebar detailing drawings and models to incorporate spacing, location, rebar size, and lap of steel. We help structural engineers, rebar fabricators, steel erectors, concrete contractors, designers, and General Contractors by providing rebar models, design models, cost estimation and schedules, and rebar shop drawings at LOD 400.

Our developed Rebar model helps the client to easily install rebar and place the reinforcement at the site with accuracy.

Our Structural Rebar Modeling Services enhances the placement, annotations, and bar marking of rebar in the 3D structure. We follow the industry standards set by AASHTO, ACI, ASTM, BS, CRSI, and RSIO.

We understand the requirements of a structural engineer who is responsible for identifying the rebar requirements for each structural component, starting with the footings and then working up.

Our experienced modelers work closely with the structural engineers’ calculations of size, spacing, zoning, layering of the bar, and other important data.

We ensure to take the drawings, interpret the data and create rebar shop drawings and models that are more practical and effective on the site.

Industry Standards

We follow the below International Industry Standards for our Deliverables-

  • AASHTO – American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials
  • ACI – American Concrete Institute
  • ASTM – American Society for Testing and Materials
  • BS – British Standard,
  • CRSI – Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute,
  • RSIO – Reinforcing Steel Institute of Ontario
  • RISC – Reinforcing Steel Institute of Canada

Benefits of Structural Rebar Modeling Services-

  1. Model-based detailing– Using the Revit BIM models help in improving overall quality as it is relied on the software algorithm to add steel reinforcement.
  2. Fabrication ready model and drawings– The model includes all the installation, assembling and fabrication details like rebar sizes, lengths and bends which is developed as individual Revit Families. This ensures consistency, quality and documentation which can be directly handed over to the supplier.
  3. Accelerates Project Schedules– Every drawing sheet, 2D or in 3D view is a presentation of the model, and they are parametric in nature. This enables the automatic sync of the model with the drawings and views which eliminates the need to spend time on manual updating or QC activity.
  4. Controls Cost– Rebar detailing in a 3D environment helps in minimizing the project costs by enabling the teams to draw their own experience to more effectively calculate the structural requirement of the project and calculate the cost.
  5. Reduces Field Errors– BIM based rebar model is in a more accessible format for different teams like contractor and rebar installer.

Good design practices that we follow

  • Understanding of structural drawings and how an engineer intends to construct the structure design that requires various structural elements like footings, Slabs, Walls, Beams, Staircases, Pile Caps, Piers, Segments, etc.
  • Understand of the notes, schedules and all the other documentation and information relevant for Rebar Detailing of the Structural elements.
  • Understanding of the construction drawing from the other trades like Architectural and MEP to ensure consistency, clash and other details that can affect Rebar Detailing.
  • Raising RFIs to the project teams to gain understanding of the missing information, conflicts and ambiguous situations.
  • Understanding of all the structural elements and how they are reinforced.
  • Strong hold in Rebar Detailing knowledge regarding its code, different standard bend shapes, standard hook lengths, lap lengths, development lengths, etc.
  • Knowledge of proper Rebar Fabrication Process
  • Rebar Placing drawing presentation style to suit the Contractors Placing crew
