DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
A pre-panelised infill project (to a primary structure-by others), manufactured off site utilizing modern methods of construction which greatly reduces on-site waste and increases efficiency. In order to achieve this Intelligent Steel needed to ensure a close working relationship was maintained with BAM alongside their subcontractors to ensure a co-ordinated approach.
Utilising Tekla a bespoke 3D BIM modelling CAD package allowed the fully detailed design to be exported straight from design to manufacture. The pre-engineered solution was designed and manufactured off-site and allowing installation on-site with confidence, creating a rapid dry envelope that exceeded the project expectations of both the client and main contractor.
Installer used 25% less labour on site, compared to traditional façade infill with programme savings of two weeks
