Steel detailing is a process by which the steel detailers create explicit drawings, plans and reports that are then used by steel erectors and fabricators as they carry out the manufacturing and construction processes of structural framework. The various kinds of drawings, plans and reports that are generated by the well known steel detailing professionals contain detailed information about different structural components within them. For this reason, steel detailing services is regarded as highly important for architects, fabricators, steel erectors and engineers who are held responsible for the accuracy and precision of a particular structure. Steel detailing is considered extremely important for improving the quality of products in a construction industry or manufacturing industry.

Steel detailing services are extensively implemented in architecture, construction and engineering industries all over the world for developing commercial and residential buildings, bridges, flyovers, factories and other forms of buildings. It is also used in the ship building industry. When shop drawings, fabrication drawings and detailed project reports are created by steel detailers, they need to make sure that the recommended steel detailing standards are maintained during their development. Some of the world's most well known organizations that have generated these steel detailing standards are Euro Codes, British Standard Codes, British Constructional Steelworks Association, American Institute of Steel Construction, Australian Institute of Steel Construction, World Steel Association and Norwegian Steel Association. The standards of steel detailing that are generated by these various internationally renowned institutions are widely accepted by the global detailers.

When the services of steel detailing companies are hired by the general contractors, it rests on their shoulders to provide them with detailed and effective specifications to the steel detailers. The sketches created by structural engineers and lead architects are provided to the detailers by the general contractors. These contain detailed information about various aspects of structural design. It is necessary for the steel detailers to refer to these plans effectively when they are working on the fabrication and erection detailing. It is also important for the detailers to stay in touch with the architects, engineers and contractors when they are executing the steel detailing services as this can help them to have access to valuable information which can in turn help them to carry out their detailing tasks more efficiently. Both the erection drawings and fabrication drawings can be examined and evaluated effectually by the structural engineers and lead architects after they have been developed properly. This means that structural drawings with intricate details are provided to the fabricators and the steel erectors only after they have been reviewed by the structural engineers and architects.
