Structural Detailing Projects

Over the years of trading, Nova have undertaken the site survey, layout, design and structural detailing of many structural steelwork projects including :

  • Structural Steelwork Detailed DesignStaircases
  • Access ways
  • Platform design
  • Platform detailing
  • Bridge detailing
  • Road / Rail access bridge steelwork
  • Building service drawings
  • Reinforced concrete | RC Detailing
  • Balustrades


To aid in the design and production of drawings Nova have invested in dedicated CAD packages designed for specific industries.

3D CAD model of structural steelwork designed using Advance SteelFor the structural steel industry we have selected Advance Steel as a design, automated detailing and scheduling package.

Advance Steel has an in-built connection design engine, giving access to simple and complex structural connections. These connections are parametrically driven meaning that if structural members change during the design or detailed design process, the connections are automatically updated.

Advance Steel Intelligent Connection Design Engine

Steelwork connections can be checked and validated against industry standards at any time with a report generated containing relevant formulas and standards for reference.

Intelligent Design Wizards

As an example, Advance Steel allows the creation of more accurate stairs and railings with the use of special wizards. These dedicated wizards save more time by helping you quickly generate straight and spiral stairs, straight and curved railings, and cage ladders.

To assist with the smooth BIM workflow, our detail designers are able to import a Revit design model and continue to work where the structural engineer left off. Once detailing is complete, the model can be taken back into Revit and resaved as a native Revit software file.
