It’s What’s Behind Our Products That Keeps Us in Front

Companies who own or lease distribution facilities and warehouses strive to maximize as much operational efficiencies and storage capabilities as possible. Buildings are elaborate mazes of equipment, vehicles, and the structures or platforms that are inside of them support the customer’s operations and maintenance of equipment. Steele Solutions’ engineering and sales teams work closely with the integration teams to provide well thought out, coordinated solutions with the customer’s best interest for operational efficiency and cost-effective solutions. Sharing drawings and models from initial concept to final build are key to ensuring the optimization of design and fabrication schedules meet the tight schedules of the e-commerce and material handling industry.

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Steele Solutions has evolved its design process to incorporate more 3D modelling tools from project inception to installation. Steel detailing software is utilized in project coordination and material planning to ensure that the visual model that is seen in the planning stages is as close to the real-life structure as possible. Steele Solutions has even gone a step further to providing models and 3D renderings for installers and site supervisors to aid in the construction efforts of the steel structures and platforms. Development and use of the tools at hand is just at the beginning stages of its full possibilities to provide a true experience for the Integrator and Owner.
