FAQ

I have no idea from whom I shall order a project. Is it a designing or a steel building manufacturing company?

Normally, all clients in Russia are inclined to order a «general project package of architectural drawings» from a single design company specializing only in making drawings (including its main parts, namely load-bearing structures, enclosure structures, foundation, power supply, heating system, lightning system, industrial landscape, etc.) That general project with all drawings is necessary for a building commissioning. Having received the package of documents a client knows the building weight and has all the necessary documents at hand. Later on, a client starts the difficult and long process of finding a specific supplier of a steel building. Knowing the building weight, a client chooses the cheapest option (the company with the lower steel building price: price/tone of metal). However, a client often hits a hidden reef in that situation. In Russia, designing companies normally do not want or think of minimizing the specific quantity of metal and sacrifice precise calculations to speed up project designing timing. Usually a steel building backbone and enclosure structures are the most expensive part of the «general project» and that is why such client has to pay much more. On top of that, choice of that designing company is determined by a promise to pull the necessary strings to speed up the steel building and general project approval by the local government authorities. Apart from that, even if a client has practically chosen a manufacturing company, the latter does not guarantee production of the steel building package as the production technology foresees using the unique equipment which very few companies have. For example, the project designing foresees using light-gauge steel framing in the shape of zinc-coated cold-formed profiles and the facilities of the chosen manufacturing company allow producing only build-up welded plates. Besides, specific units, joints and parts used in production may not meet the project designing requirements. PK Vesta recommendations: 1. We recommend ordering the main parts of the general project with architectural drawings (steel framing, façade and base) from a specific steel building manufacturing company directly. The Design Department as a structural department is a serious plus as its main task will be connected with minimization of the metal specific quantity or a steel building overall cost. 2. Please pay attention to the format of the project designing files. PK Vesta, for example, provides a client with architectural drawings in PDF and DWG formats. Any corrections can be easily made into drawings in DWG format (in terms of the heating, lighting and power supply systems, etc.) The DWG format is an absolute MUST for the international clients. Advantages of an order placement with PK Vesta: 1.Designing and engineering a steel building in our own Design Department or by experienced regional or national outsourced partners/manufacturers; 2.Project overall cost minimization due to decrease in the specific quantity of metal; 3.A steel building manufacturing in our own facilities or in one of our partner’s plants; 4.
