About Us


“In 2004, I began my drafting career by randomly selecting an AutoCAD class as an elective/math credit in high school. Of course, I didn’t know that at the time! After 3 years of drafting in high school, a 2006 high-school aged “1st Place Arizona State Drafting Competition” award, and a year as a teacher’s aide in high school drafting class I was ready to move into the work force ahead of schedule. In January of 2007, I began my career as a commercial and miscellaneous steel detailer in Mesa, AZ. Here I would spend 4 years working with multiple detailers in small to extra large projects to learn the ins and outs of steel detailing using┬áthe power of Tekla Structures. Before I knew it, 2011 took me by surprise and I would soon spend 2.5 years in the industrial mining sector detailing for a largely successful and international Engineering firm out of Chandler, Arizona. After a company wide lay-off in April 2014, I was left jobless. I decided it was time to take life by the horns and pursue my true potential as a steel detailing company owner.” – Robert Caputo, Owner & Lead Detailer
