Detailed Design

Detailed design is applying the system developed to all sections of the façade and all intersections and connections of the façade with the building and the materials of other trades.


The difference between the system design and the detailed design is that; the system design focuses on the creation of the system from scratch whereas the detailed design interprets the architect’s design intent by applying the system designed to meet his requirements by specifying all dimensioning defining all characteristics of all materials used and the method of fixings. The positioning of each element of the façade with the structure and the surrounding materials are clearly indicated in these detailed shop drawings. The principle of Metal Yapı is that no amendment or site production is made on the field, thus each material with the agreed tolerances are designed at the detailed design stage. These drawings in the form of 2D or 3D are prepared for the approval of the client architect and thus eliminating any misunderstanding or any flaw after the erection is finished is eliminated.

We also produce another set of drawings which are prepared for the shop level and these are called production drawings. Production drawings is the translation of the shop drawings into machining language and these are internal drawings for the use of factory, quality management department and the site installation team and not submitted to the architects. Metal Yapı employs 50 architects, engineers and technicians in both detailing processes, all equipped with the latest versions of the most advanced ACAD and Solid modeling software. Besides software found in the market Metal Yapı has in house computer software development team which creates special custom software to be used to speed up, improve the capacity of the detailed design process and to eliminate human errors.

Metal Yapı can design 30 unique and different projects at the same time through the same process regardless of the size, the type or the location of the project and this is secured with the ISO 9000 Quality Management System which has been applied since 2002. All the design process is tracked in an online automatic tracking and tracing system which reports the current status of each piece of drawing file as well as the time spent so that the time planning schedule is controlled by the project design chief and the project manager. The transfer of shop drawings to the production drawings department and the transfer of production drawings to the CNC machines are realized through the internet and intranet networks
