Building Information Modeling

Building Information Modeling (BIM) has become a crucial tool for SMF in developing 3D models, plans and drawings that communicate the project design to the fabricators and erectors working on complex projects. Additionally, SMF utilizes FabSuite Steel Fabrication Software to manage all aspects of a project from estimating to scheduling to production to installation. FabSuite provides real-time tracking of a project, allowing SMF Project Managers better project control that improves efficiency, productivity, and keeps projects on time and on budget.


Summit Metal Fabricators has full-time Steel Detailers on staff. Using Building Information Modeling (BIM) our detailers prepare detailed plans, drawings and other documents for the manufacture and erection of our fabrications, ensuring that the final installed fabrication meets the client's specifications.
