Our Process

Emerald Steel’s team includes knowledgeable steel industry veterans with years of design and construction experience.

From initial design through final installation, Emerald Steel can execute even the most difficult steel projects in the most challenging environments. Whether we’re working on a seismic retrofit or a Design-Build project, our process goes through four crucial phases.

  1. Design
    Every successful project starts with a good design. Our detailers provide extensive shop drawings to ensure that every connection and attachment strictly follows code.
  2. Fabrication
    Once shop drawings are approved, our shop fabricates the steel to exact specifications.
  3. Quality Control
    Emerald Steel has a full time Quality Control (QC) person in the shop who inspects and checks the material during the fabrication process to ensure it is ready for installation in the field without error.
  4. Field Direction & Installation
    We’re deeply invested in ensuring every project is installed with the highest accuracy and precision. Our team doesn’t leave until the final inspection and approval.
