Sharma provides engineering services to structural steel and pre-engineered steel builders. He has worked with churches in the US and a company involved in digital electronic equipment, construction material and car accessories equipment.
When serving clients in the US, he works according to the building code standards of MBMA and AWIS. Since building code standards change from company to company based on their production capability, so he collects their standards during the course of a project. In this way, he easily adopts their standards during the preparation of GAD’s (general arrangement drawings), which he then uses for creating fabrication drawing. A fabrication drawing is further used to create shop drawings. Based on such shop drawings, he creates a component list in the form of a shipper (i.e. equipment lists for the logistics service provider).
On the basis of a company’s standards and approved drawings, he prepares shop, fabrication or component assembly drawings and bills of materials (BOM’s) or shippers. He mainly uses AutoCAD, TEKLA and MS Office to prepare these documents.
With respect to pre-engineered buildings (PEB’s), he handles all types of complexity, such as high bay and low bay combinations, fascia, bypass and flush conditions, mezzanines, cranes and crane walkway platforms, staircases, sunken slab mezzanine cut outs, canopies, screw downs and floating roof systems.
