Steel & Roofing Systems (SRS) provides innovative and effective engineering solutions. The company is a member of BCSA and one of Ireland’s largest steel fabricators producing up to 9,000 tonnes of structural steelwork per year. To save time during preparation and to automate the production flow, Steel & Roofing Systems uses ConstruSteel | Steel fabrication software for nesting steel bars and to generate digital cutting lists and machine files.

“By using ConstruSteel, we save hours and hours of time.
We definitely recommend the software!”

Conor Whelan (Director) - Steel & Roofing Systems

Easy-to-use and adaptable steel fabrication software

After years of optimising steel profiles by pen and paper, Steel & Roofing Systems searched the market for a software solution to automate this process. Conor Whelan, Director at Steel & Roofing Systems: ‘Our goal was to save time on preparing production. With the trial of another software solution, we experienced too many difficulties. We chose to try out ConstruSteel instead.’

During the 14-day free trial of ConstruSteel, Steel & Roofing Systems was convinced about the power and easy-to-use software. Sean Meany, Job Preparator at Steel & Roofing Systems explains: ‘Without any demo upfront, I have learned using ConstruSteel by myself in just a few hours. The in-program walkthroughs guided me with all the necessary steps. Also, the software features clear documentation and an Online Service Desk with quick response.’

Time saving for preparing production

Because of the intuitive layout and understandable user interface, users benefit with the software right from the start. The process in ConstruSteel starts by simply importing BIM data from the draughtsmen / engineer. After the BIM import, all the material nesting, purchase orders and production data can be generated by ConstruSteel.

Sean Meany: ‘The advanced nesting algorithm for material works very easy. Previously, I spent almost a day to prepare and optimise material for a certain project. With ConstruSteel this only takes minutes.’

Less material waste and production errors

‘Once we started with ConstruSteel, we knew our goal to save time was achieved instantly. The software is straightforward and clear’, states Conor Whelan. Because of the advanced nesting algorithm, material waste is reduced to a minimum as well. The nesting gives a clear visible result of all the nested parts into a supplier length. When the nesting is approved by the user, with ConstruSteel you can generate the purchase order and production data for the nested parts.

‘At this moment, we use the generated cutting lists in the workshop. But we will start controlling our Peddinghaus machine with ConstruSteel machine files in the near future. This will save even more time and eliminates production errors at the machine. We definitely recommend ConstruSteel to other steel fabrication companies’, concludes Sean Meany.
