Engineering and Design

The Engineering and Design Division of Advanced Building Systems relies on the industry leading BIM (Builders Information Modeling) software for the framing system design and coordination with projects’ design team and sub-trades. This is one of the value-added processes that is offered to clients to ensure delivery of the highest efficiency and quality while reducing change orders and delays. ABS’ associate engineering staff value engineer each project at the lowest possible construction cost with the highest structural integrity. By Incorporating the structural steel brace frames instead of the traditional shear wall components (i.e. flat straps, gussets, hold downs, anchor bolts and/or Sure-board) ABS system simplifies the panel production and installation while increasing the efficiency of the project’s structure. This method also gives all the sub-trades the ability to work freely within the 24″ O.C. stud bays without any complexity.
