Steel Detailing Experience
A 1985 high honor graduate of ITT Technical Institute. I started out in the industry with a local structural steel and miscellaneous fabrication shop called Park Steel, Corp located in Gardner, MA. After 3 years as a steel detailer I was promoted to head of checking and remained at that position for an additional 3 years. I went on to be promoted to project manager for my last 4 years employment with Park Steel. After 10 years total employment, and a serious crash in the market, Park Steel was forced to close it's doors leaving me with a big decision. Through my contacts that I acquired as a project manager I chose to go on my own and have been successful for 14 years running. In 1995 I opted for my first structural steel detailing program called ME2, developed by Mountain Enterprises. I could not say enough good things about that program. In the fall of 2000 I opted for a windows based program developed by Tekla Corporation known as Tekla Structures, formerly called Xsteel. I currently employ one other steel detailer and team work is our goal and commitment. With Tekla Structures anything can be achieved with excellence.
