It is also embedded in concrete for reinforcement. The detailed structural engineering necessitates working out the details of rebars with respect to its configuration in the entire structure. This exercise is known as Rebar Detailing Services and is usually outsourced by the companies that manage projects.
Rebars are indispensable elements of structural engineering that finds application is all kinds of construction elements like walls, foundations, slabs, columns, beams, staircases, pits elevators and many more. There are many service companies that have become valuable resources for a host of engineering services related to civil engineering and mechanical engineering that are usually outsourced by the construction companies. These outsourcing companies are competent to handle anything related to structural engineering services including Rebar Detailing Services which is a component of structural detailing. The services are applicable for both steel and RCC structures.
The importance of detailing
Why Rebar Detailing Service is considered a very important for the construction industry? The strength of a building depends upon the design and structural integrity of the construction that in turn depends on the structural elements that go in to its making of which rebars are the most important component.
The cost of construction is determined by the quality and quantity of rebars that are used. And the quantity of rebars can be estimated only through complete drawings of the structure that show the positions and layout pattern of the rebars in various construction elements. Therefore, the accuracy of the rebar details is critical to the quality of construction as well as in determining its cost.
Rebar estimation helps to generate data that is necessary to plan the supply logistics of the project. It becomes clear, which kinds of rebars need to be supplied at various stages of construction.
There are two reasons why Rebar Detailing Services are outsourced by the construction companies. The first is that it is a highly specialized service that is rendered by trained professionals who are competent to undertake the job. The second reason is that people working in the construction industry do not have the specialization that is required and the service does not match with the core activities of the company – hence outsourcing is a time saving and cheaper option.
Scope of service
A typical rebar detailing service could include the following:
• Shop drawing services for rebars.
• Rebars placement drawing services
• Services for bar bending schedules.
• Detaining services for retaining walls.
• As built drawing services.
• Rebar design service.
• Rebar foundation detailing services.
• Detailing services for concrete masonry.
Structural engineers and architects are the main beneficiaries of professional rebar detailing services that adds value to the construction.
