Who we are

Chinook Drafting Services Ltd. began operations in 1973. The original owner semi-retired in 2008, and the remaining draftsmen took over under the name Chinook Drafting Services 2008 Ltd. Presently our group consists of one senior steel detailer, trained in the United Kingdom under the apprenticeship training program. We have also formed an association with other detailing services to be more able to meet our clients' needs.

How we operate

Currently we have two Tekla (version 16.1) stations at our disposal. With our 36" engineering copier we are also fully equipped to provide hard copies of all drawings for our customers. We operate an FTP server and have a dropbox account to allow digital drawing files to be transfered quickly to and from customers.

We can also offer the services of a Professional Structural Engineer registered in Alberta and British Columbia which enables us to provide connection design calculations and sealed shop drawings as required by our customers.

During a typical calendar year we complete numerous and varied projects, in both Canada and the U.S.A.including: Schools, hospitals, commercial and office space, as well as a full range of industrial projects such as material handling conveyors, chutes, hoppers, and ancillary structural steel for industries such as oil and gas, concrete, coal, etc.
