Faster Steel Frame Connection Installation 

Errors, omissions and designs that don’t adequately address construction realities rear their ugly heads during the erection process. The pressure on the schedule and budget impacts the erector by leaving less time to deliver a successful project result.

SidePlate designs are a steel framing alternative to traditional braced and moment frame designs proven effective in over 550 buildings throughout North America. Most projects are field-bolted and eliminate on-site welding and inspections, giving an additional time savings.  Fewer connections, faster erection times, minimal to no welding, and less rework come together to significantly reduce erection costs and deliver a more profitable project. 

The SidePlate team works with the design and construction team throughout the project to support a successful project outcome. Our engineering team reviews the EOR work, aids in the detailing and fabrication, and is available to visit the site during the project to provide support for every SidePlate installation.

How does SidePlate work with You?

Step 1: SidePlate assigns a Project Manager(PM) to work closely with the fabrication team to detail and fabricate the SidePlate connections as part of the overall steel package.

Step 2: We offer to hold a kick-off meeting with the entire steel team to answer questions, share best practices and monitor production of the SidePlate connections.

Step 3: We offer to visit the fabrication shop during production.

Step 4: We offer to visit the site during construction to support your team.
