Connection Design Case Study

SDS/2: Reduce Costs During Design

SDS/2 has a savings with each connection, but shows its strength when that saving is applied to all connections throughout a project. Based on this study, a typical structure utilizing SDS/2 connection design on 10,000 members has an average savings of 13 minutes per connection, resulting in an estimated savings of $433,333. 

With increasing rates throughout every phase of the construction process, companies are continually looking for areas to cut cost and increase savings. One area where companies can lower their bottom lines is their investment in engineering man hours spent designing connections, as well as decreasing costs by eliminating third-party applications and connection design services.
