Hadley Steel Framing -
Engineering Estimation System

Custom application for structural engineers designing steel frames

ConstructSys developed a system which aids the design of frames by engineers. The system determines the most econonical materials to the user for consideration depending on dimensions and characteristics and produces an indicative for review.

The challenge

Complex Estimation System

Hadley Steel Framing had to use a large proportion of their engineering resource on producing complex estimates. Each enquiry required hundreds of calculations and detailed drawings reducing the time available for the team to work on live projects.

The result

Estimates available in minutes instead of hours

A design which previously took an engineer a large number of hours to calculate and draw can now be determined and verified in a matter of minutes. This huge increase in efficiency has resulted in a major reduction in costs.

The stats


90% reduction in time to create an indicative for each project.


Average cost saving of £2,000 per project.


100% of steel sections, jambs, lintels and tracks included.

“It is nice to meet suppliers who do what they say they will do, on time and within budget. ConstructSys are professional, approachable and easy to work with and we would have no hesitation in recommending their services.”
