Since 1970, Dowco has provided 3D structural modeling and steel detailing services for construction projects of any size (large scale and highly complex projects being a specialty) requiring structural steel, miscellaneous steel, and plate work. We started on drafting tables, moved to computer aided drafting in 1981, and became the first North America user of Tekla Structures 3D modeling software in 1995. Services include: Pre-Construction modelling, connection design, project management, model and drawing checking, shop and erection drawings and structural BIM coordination.
Dowco provides accurate, detailed plans that translate design intent with ease of fabrication, erection and installation in mind. Dowco’s experienced teams work to both imperial and metric standards. All work complies with AISC and CISC requirements and staff consult closely with clients to ensure that standards are adhered to.View Brochure

A megaproject is an extremely large-scale investment project that typically attracts public attention because of substantial impacts on communities, environment, and budgets, and the high costs involved. Megaprojects can be seen as crucial to the future of cities, States and individuals.
As technology, machinery and construction methods improve over time, the size, complexity, scope and scale of what builders create is only limited by imagination. Megaprojects almost always require creativity, problem solving abilities and an experienced design and build team willing to collaborate using advance BIM technology and processes.
Dowco’s experience on large scale, iconic projects, combined with our Global IT-enabled 24/6 production operation makes Dowco an ideal partner for any Megaproject.
