Passion Drives Excellence
M. Vadevelan started a company in steel detailing services back in 1996, which was named as VA Structural Services. According to the director, that was the time when India needed more technologically advanced solutions in steel detailing and the pre-engineering sector that wasn’t available to the native service providers. This was why he went abroad in pursuit of further technical knowledge that would help the country build better structures. It was in 2018, after 21 years he returned to India and renamed the company as VeVe Structural services and opened a gamut of Structural steel detailing, pre-engineering, Rebar Detailing & Architectural Detailing services. Successful experimentation on latest technologies also inspired the director to provide 3D modelling services for steel detailing.
“Powered by cutting edge technologies and the best minds in the industry, we offer structural 3D modelling services focused on facilitating better product/structure visualization and helping our clients convey their design concepts through accurate 3D models. We have an extensive skill base, expertise, and experience that allow us to execute structural 3D modelling projects embracing the latest technologies,” says Vadivelan.
The company offers steel detailing services to its clients worldwide. Their steel detailing headquarters in Chennai employs engineers with academic degrees in structural and civil engineering. They are further equipped with in-depth technical expertise and extensive experience in structural steel detailing. Talented professionals at VeVe

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is also one of the many steel detailing services provided by VeVe Structural Services. BIM is widely seen as a catalyst for innovation and productivity in the construction industry. It can assist a more sustainable construction process that in turn may contribute to eradicating poverty in developing countries. BIM is as an intelligent model-based process for planning, designing and managing buildings and infrastructure projects. With the increasing popularity of BIM, producing a fully coordinated BIM 3D service model is essential for any construction project. BIM models are intelligent objects backed by the knowledge of geometry and data.
