|"Eternal Ribbon," Dublin Bart Corridor Project
From concept to as built out in the field, the model was a key proponent in visual collaboration between all parties on this complex project. The model was extremely effective in communicating required connection revisions in order to achieve the final design on the project. The shop fabrication of the large assemblies denoted extensive dimensioning concepts to maintain quality control and accuracy. There are no rotation points since the section is not a circle. Field erection went smooth with only 2 splice connections. The initial erection took place in the shop, then was dissassembled for transport.
Tekla Structures played a large role in this unique project. The deforming tool was used on different "nose" sections in the model. Tekla Structures was able to create drawings despite the "bi-folded" panels and the complexity of the model.
|Broadway Pier Cruise Ship Terminal
The terminal building has an innovative streamlined shape to incorporate energy-conserving components and additional public access. The "sawtooth" roof design will be the foundation for the photovoltaic system (solar panels). The second story of the building has been erected on the existing pier deck which is 52,000 sq ft. This terminal is one of San Diego county's largest LEED accredited public work projects.
|Diamondback/Rockies Spring Training Facility
The Diamondback/Rockies Spring Training facility was a fast-tracked project consisting of 750 tons of steel sent out for approval in 4 weeks. Weekly coordination meetings contributed to the success of this big project.
|New Meadowlands Stadium
The 2.2-million-square-foot design-build stadium; which consists of three concourse levels, three suite levels and an upper deck; was designed
only a few hundred yards northeast of the former facility. The immense 910ft x 740ft facility is divided by only four expansion joints separating endzones and sideline structures. The service level and playing field are supported by concrete filled steel piles. Additional amenities include a wide pedestrian plaza, Hall of Fame facilities for each team, team stores, restaurants and a multitude of game-day
Due to the fast-track nature of the project, Tekla Structures was used to model and coordinate the structural steel and precast elements with the architect. The Tekla model was then handed off to the steel fabricator providing a seamless flow of information
to expedite the steel procurement and detailing. This building information model was made available to the construction manager for incorporation into a complete building systems model to coordinate MEP and building facade, virtually eliminating all potential field issues commonly encountered during normal construction projects. The success of this process reduced months from the construction schedule resulting in a win for the Owner as well as the design and construction teams.
Tekla Structures played a significant role in execution and delivery of the overall success of this project. The fast-track nature,
complexity, and degree of coordination necessary to design and construct a project of this magnitude required the immediate transfer of information between all parties. By utilizing Tekla Structures, the design team was able to create a single structural model, transfer it directly downstream to the construction manager to coordinate follow-on trades and to the steel fabricator to place material orders early and go directly into fabrication to meet the demanding schedule. Through the use of this BIM approach, the entrant has changed the way projects are coordinated and delivered setting a new standard for the design and construction industry.
