Episode 1: Designing Allegiant Stadium [Full]

See how Arup achieved effective design management, change management and collaboration with a database driven approach whilst designing Allegiant Stadium, the new home for the Las Vegas Raiders

What you'll learn:

  • Why a database driven approach was chosen and how it worked
  • How steel and concrete documentations were combined
  • How parametric modelling was supported by a central database

Taking a database driven project approach, Arup created the structural steel design model with collaboration in mind. The project team was able to share BIM content directly with the builder with no missed translations as designs moved between different platforms. Automated tools were also created to regularly convert the model for cloud collaboration with the rest of the design team.

Documenting the main structural steel design with Trimble technology, which is also used by the steel fabricator and their detailer was key to reducing schedule time and helping the project team to deliver this stadium in 42 months from the start of design to the handover of the keys. 


The Delivering differently series

We invite you behind the scenes to see Arup’s use of automation practices in some of their most innovative and challenging projects.

Presented through a series of webinars, project engineers will unveil their unique approach to the continuous development of automation through knowledge and process, supported by Trimble technology.
