Here’s how you can win more bids, improve profitability and optimize the entire precast workflow.
Betset, one of the largest precast concrete companies in Finland, is taking advantage of real-time, automated and open data exchange in their business.
Thanks to BIM, the company finds possible errors already with the model which saves plenty of time and money compared to recognizing errors in production phase.
With the new technologies reshaping the construction industry, Pittsburgh Flexicore set out to implement BIM principles throughout its sales, estimating, production and erection business practices.
Valuable time and accuracy can be lost by manually scaling distances, calculating angles from plans, turning angles with theodolites, and pulling tapes to measure distances.
BIM increased clarity and project understanding throughout the project team and supply chain, resulting in faster cycle times and more automated higher-quality fabrication processes.
Kassian Dyck & Associates could not have detailed the total precast building to the fast-track schedule without the extensive 3D modeling benefits provided in Tekla Structures.
Modeling thousands of parts and panels of the housing complex in 3D, including steel as well as both precast and cast-in-place concrete structures, helped the engineering office tackle their timeline.
All erection drawings, shop tickets, reinforcing bars, connections and drawings were generated and completed within the 3D environment of Tekla Structures.
Having the Tekla model has been a great advantage to us. It’s been much easier to understand this highly complex structure, and by using this technology we have avoided many errors.
Aas-Jakobsen needed an efficient way to collaborate.
Choosing BIM for production and installation lead to avoiding errors.
The ability to transfer data to and from third-party software without errors was what made it possible for individual sections of this construction to be divided up and worked on by various parties.
Following the industry’s push towards BIM level 2, FP McCann has incorporated a variety of Trimble’s Tekla software to meet this requirement and to also satisfy its manufacturing needs
