You may be able to use the railing tool but other than that you are likely just modeling all of that manually. Sections can be drawn and extruded as psolids and then some may need to be converted to solids to use the bolean toolset.  Polyline solids can be converted to symbols with stretch planes and saved in the library or just copied and used over.

 

It will take some time but you should be able to do a better job than the original set of drawings by using Chief.

This is one of those instances where it must be drawn with polyline solids. Make sure you create a layer called "Steel Framing" or something similar to place all these pieces. Once you have mastered the polyline solids this is relatively simple.

I'm not that vast in using the polyline solid and bolean toolset. Can you point me in the direction of resources (video, link etc) that can assist me.

 

Thanks

Start Here: https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/5445/creating-3d-cad-objects.html?playlist=98

 

However you are getting into some of chief's more advanced tools so there will be a learning curve.

 

Michael has a lot of training video's that pick up where chief's video's leave off but be sure you understand the basics first.
