Specialty Metal Fabrication Services

Structural steel connections can have elaborate loading and diverse geometry. These designs range from being very simple to extremely complex. LBYD engineers have extensive knowledge of steel connection design and detailing and offer quality connection design services. LBYD understands that connection design must be safe and must be economical for the fabricator and erector to produce.  LBYD structural engineers work closely with fabricators to provide designs that work well with the fabricator’s shop practices and can be erected in the field as easily as possible.  Our professional engineers have a vast understanding of design issues and can provide creative solutions that will minimize errors, keep costs down and improve the project schedule. 

In today’s construction environment, more and more design responsibility is being shifted to the contractor/ fabricator.  LBYD provides high quality designs for stairs, handrails, mechanical platforms and their connections to the main structure for owners and fabricators to satisfy the demands of the project.  LBYD has experience designing these structures in steel, stainless steel and aluminum.  





LBYD is comfortable with complex designs:

  • Multiple members coming to a single point
  • Complex loading and member orientation
  • Designs that your standard connection
    design software cannot handle.
