In-house drafting services enable FEC to efficiently complete design and drafting jobs. FEC’s experienced drafting teams, alongside the design engineers, have a strong focus of producing practical designs which simplify the manufacturing, operation and maintenance procedures for the design. Services are available for 2D or 3D drafting from concept layout through to detail fabrication drawings. FEC utilise an in-house drafting standard to produce consistent, controlled and presentable drawings that conform to AS1100 and our clients own standards where required.



FEC always use the latest version of AutoCAD as it is the fundamental 2D drawing package. The majority of vessel, tank, structural, platform and piping isometrics are completed in AutoCAD.
