Lester Detailing, Inc. - American Structural Steel Detailer

We are Structural Steel Detailing organization founded and incorporated in 1962 by Willard J. Lester.  We have many years experience providing detailing services for industrial, commercial and educational structures.  Our high-quality work  has earned us an excellent reputation and a loyal client base. 


We utilize the most common 3D modeling programs such as SDS/2 and Tekla as well as Autocad and SteelCad to maximize our efficiency and accuracy.


We specialize in projects that require additional attention to problem solving due to Contract Document discrepancies, especially in fast-track projects. We enjoy communicating directly with the Architect and Engineer to help resolve design issues in order to expedite the project and minimize RFI's. We also will coordinate directly with any other trades such as precast, joist and deck, and HVAC in order to assist the Steel Fabricator with management of the project.  All communication is documented and forwarded to all parties for record.  We have enjoyed this method of cooperation between ourselves and the design team on many of our projects with great success.
