Rebar Detailing

Dowco’s team of experienced rebar detailers utilize modern 3D technology solutions to design, model and detail reinforced concrete structures. We provide structural rebar modeling and detailing services for the structural rebar connections and reinforcements at LOD 400 as per company and industry standards. Our 3D rebar model provides accurate shop drawings for easy rebar installation at the site.

Major benefits realized from the application of sophisticated 3D modeling tools include early detection of interferences, greater efficiency in change management, precise take-offs, material management, reduction of errors, and clearer interpretation of design drawings. Strong proponents of BIM and a multidisciplinary workflow, Dowco is keen to incorporate other stakeholders in a BIM workflow. In doing so, Dowco’s technology-centric approach simplifies details, increases productivity and facilitates integration between design, detailing and construction teams.

Reinforced Concrete Detailing

Reinforced concrete detailing, or rebar detailing, is the process of creating detailed drawings used in the construction of reinforced concrete structures. These drawings and specifications provide the necessary information to properly fabricate, place, and finish the concrete and rebar reinforcement of the structure with precision. This is usually a complex and critical process.

The process for detailing reinforced concrete, also known as Rebar, is typically as follows:

  1. Reviewing the design drawings and specifications: The rebar detailer reviews the design drawings and specifications provided by the engineer to understand the requirements of the project.
  2. Developing the reinforced steel layout: The detailer determines the size, shape, and placement of the reinforced steel based on the design requirements provided.
  3. Creating detailed drawings: The detailer creates detailed drawings that show the placement of the reinforcing steel and the concrete elements, including beams, columns, and foundations. These drawings also include information on the size and spacing of the reinforcement, as well as the size and shape of the concrete elements themselves.
  4. Specifying materials and methods: The detailer specifies the type and grade of the reinforcing steel and the type of concrete to be used in the project. They also provide information on the construction methods to be used, including the methods for placing and finishing the concrete.

Reinforced concrete detailing is a critical step in the construction process, as it ensures that the structure will be built according to the design specifications and will have the required strength and durability.
