Structural Design Build

With SWS, we provide several structural design and engineering services in order to execute a high standard of delivery. In identifying the specifics of each panel from the start, we maximize project efficiency and ensure flawless installation. Our design assistance program combined with our collaboration with our engineering partners allow your vision to come to life. SWS also provides comprehensive estimating services in order to maintain transparency with our clients.

Design Assistance


With the architectural and structural plans at hand, SWS is able to prepare the shop drawings for metal wall and floor systems. We utilize the latest computer generated drafting technology specifically for panel construction in order to bring your designs to life. The panel drawings created identify the specifics of each panel including:

  • Dimensions
  • Size/ gauge/ flange width of studs
  • Fastener method
  • Opening location

The final product is a wall panel layout that eases field erection to provide maximum efficiency for the client. Based on this layout, each individual panel is given its own unique number in order to ensure successful installation.

To streamline this process as much as possible, SWS’ shop drawings are coordinated directly with all applicable trades to help identify and eliminate any issues such as:

  • Conflicts with MEP locations
  • Dimensional discrepancies
  • Elevation inconsistency
  • Rough Opening issues
