In 1989, Ty Shank, Founder of TS Steel Detailing, started detailing in the steel industry for a local steel fabrication company. In 1995, he started TS Steel Detailing and began working as an independent contractor providing steel detailing services for several fabrication companies. While producing drawings on the drafting board, he then started training using AutoCAD and in 1997 all his drawings were produced in CAD format for his clients. Primarily detailing stairs, rails and smaller structural projects, he got into larger multi-story projects up to 500 ton of steel.
In 2006, after the market slowed down, he decided to work as a structural designer for an engineering firm. After a few years, he took on the role of a Senior Structural Designer continuing to learn from the other engineers and designers to better himself and the work he produced. For over 12 years he has been designing and detailing steel structures for all types of industry. while at the engineering firm, most of the work was completed working hand-in-hand with the Engineers creating structural design drawings then producing fabrication steel details for those designs.
In 2018 he decided to expand and created TS Steel Detailing, LLC and now employs some of the most experienced people in the industry.
There are many individuals working in the structural industry today, some great, some not so great. How do you know if your working with a great Structural Engineer, Designer or Detailer?
