CAD Design

Technical Feedback

Once a contract has been awarded to SMD, our fully trained CAD Technicians will detail the deck general arrangement plans using AutoCAD or, where a model is available, using TEKLA Structures 3D modelling package.


All materials on our drawings will only be issued for manufacture once client approval and any outstanding information has been received. 

Any queries raised by our customers can be discussed and explained with the help of our company videos, guidance sheets and TGN Online, our online guidance for design and installation of composite metal floor and structural roof deck. 


• Our Design Technicians will raise any potential issues with deck bearing, temporary propping or any potential access problem areas early in design stage.

• Provide fully detailed CAD generated GA drawings for client approval.

• Any outstanding queries or missing dimensions are highlighted in our DQS or RFI sheets at drawing issue date.
