We are enthused to offer the Royal Centre of Horticultural Science and Learning as one of our Tekla Structures models. The building provides a venue for learning, conference and education, to all generations, in the world of Horticulture.
Curved fabricated steel sections have been utilized to create a floral look to the structure, effectively synthesizing nature and industrialism. The building not only serves as a place of congregation for likeminded society members but also as an aesthetic marvel to all visitors.
What made the project successful?
BIM encouraged effective data transmittal between sub-contractors across the whole project. The intricate steel layout introduced a variety of non-standard steel to steel connections which needed approval from all parties. Screenshots, IFC models and 2D CAD drawings were all used to submit information for review.
