Our primary goal with any new contract is to quickly gather the information required, check it for completeness and adequacy, chase with urgency any outstanding construction documents, and confirm by way of transmittal's, that all trades are working to a uniform construction set.
Next comes a thorough analysis of all relevant Consultants drawings to ensure compatibility. Problem areas and identified and quick, cost effective solutions are proposed by way of "Request for Information"
During this process, modelling using "Strucad" and "Autocad" has already begun, quickly forming a 3-D representation of the structure. The ability to work in the 3-D environment allows for immediate visualization of conflicts between Steel, Concrete, Services, etc. Utilizing our Struwalker 3-D viewer software other trades can view the same model remotely. We appreciate co-ordination between trades is essential to ensure total cohesion of your project. We can generate a number of other 3D model formats for other sub-trades to utilize within their own specific systems,including: 3D Autocad DWG's & DXF's, BIM models, AISC files, etc.
From the 3D model we then generate 2D drawings which cover:
-3D views of the buildings intended appearance, sequencing and installation methodology
-2D setout drawings containing detailed yet simplified setout information for all Consultants, builders and sub-trades alike.
-2D fabrication drawings for all individual elements that make up the structure.
-A complete bill of materials, including Steel, bolts, paint systems, transportation lengths and weights, phasing despatch lists, etc. Lists can be manipulated to your specific needs, showing only the info you require, in the format that best suits your needs, be it from pdf's to Excel or .csv formats.
-CNC files for automated beam lines and plate profile cutting
-A comprehensive record of all communications is maintained, including "Requests for information", "Notice of Changes", "drawing transmittal's", emails and phone calls.
