The tools of our roots in the engineering and steel detailing industries were pencils, t-squares and triangles. As CAD and CNC technology has progressed over the years so have the talent and skill of our staff. We currently utilize a number of Autodesk products along with Design Data's SDS/2 steel detailing software to model and detail steel structures. We have full BIM capabilities and offer a multitude of services custom tailored to each projects needs.
Our shop detail drawings are concise and customized for each client's unique set of production practices. We understand how important a shop fabrication standard or field installation method is in the overall big picture of a successful project. Correct and efficient application of the AWS specification on our shop drawings along with your shop standards and MRP requirements is critical to our workflow so that it is seamless in yours.
We offer BIM (Building Information Modeling) preconstruction consulting in several forms and at various stages of the design process, (CIS/2, .STP, .SKP, .IFC, .DWF, .DXF, .IGES, .DWG, .RVT to name a few). Having a registered professional engineer, trained steel detailers and checkers on staff allows us to naturally and efficiently find and execute a "realistic" BIM approach to this format of design & detailing coordination. On the fabrication / production side we offer DSTV .NC1, .DXF CNC data as well as FabTrol integration and KISS files
Many of our projects have utilized a combined effort of Engineering, Project Management and Steel Detailing services to delivering a complete and well-coordinated product that eliminates costly shop or field issues as well as construction delays.
Fischer Design Group, LLC was formed by veteran Steel Detailer, Mike Fischer along with a registered structural/civil engineer and architect as a collaborative effort to provide quality structural & miscellaneous steel detailing, engineering services for commercial and industrial operations.
Our multi-disciplined firm affords us the unique ability to consult with architects, engineers, building owners, general contractors and our core customer base, the Steel Fabricator. Using our diverse background combined with our many years of experience allows us to provide dependable, timely and comprehensive detailing services, and structural design to fit your scope requirements while staying competitive without having to sacrifice quality.
Our project experience and capabilities range from very simple, small structures to complex structural steel framing exceeding 4,200 tons. We also can provide connection design services and comprehensive structural analysis for design build projects.
