Erection planning begins at the start

The planning for the erection of the steel begins at the beginning of the design process, as the planning needs to take into account the erection of the components.

Practical erection sequence

Our software allows our team to plan the erection sequence to ensure logistics and transportation of steel is done in order and on-time.

Simplicity of assembly

The structural steel is simply assembled together on-site, as it’s fabricated to fit together perfectly.

Logical trade sequence

We develop the most logical trade sequences to ensure all deadlines are met with ease.

Structural steel erection phases

Pre-erection of steel

Prior to the erection of the structural steel, the team at BridgeFab designs the erection processes which form the erection sequence methodology. This method indicates how the steel will be erected and must be approved prior to erection.


Prior to erection, the transportation of the structural steel from BridgeFab to the site have been reviewed and agreed upon. The logistics must be approved before the building can start.

Daily erection procedures

This is the phase where the construction is ongoing, and the structural steel framework is being connected together on-site. Daily erection procedures are being carried out by BridgeFab’s team to erect the structural steel.

During the erection phase, a steel erector supervisor will be present to ensure everything is done correctly.

Steel erection is important for ensuring structural integrity, construction efficiency, design flexibility, durability, safety, sustainability, and the economic impact of steel structures.

The process of erection in construction involves site preparation, foundation construction, pre-fabrication and delivery of structural components, lifting and positioning of components, connection and fastening, structural integrity checks, installation of secondary components, systems integration, finishing and commissioning, and handover for occupancy.

Steel erection activities include offloading and handling, column erection, beam placement, girder and truss installation, bracing and stability, roof and floor decking, stair and handrail installation, connection and fastening, crane operations and rigging, and the implementation of safety measures.
