In this video, you’ll learn get a firsthand look at how Façade Design for Fabrication can help architects, engineers and construction managers to work more efficiently with façade fabricators.

Façade Design for Fabrication, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, connects all processes from design through fabrication and construction. The result is a significant reduction in design process and fabrication waste.

This video will walk you through the process of designing a new stadium and then demonstrate how a façade engineer can use this same 3D model to produce shop drawings.

We interviewed Richard Kelly, Operations Director for buildingSMART International, to get his take on the Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) trend in AEC Industry.

The concept of DfMA was developed in the 1970s as a structured way of making product development more efficient.

Today, however, DfMA is one more manufacturing concept that is transforming the efficiency with which buildings are brought to market.

Each year, BIM World aims to bring together all of the members of the AEC chain to discuss how BIM tools can improve the processes of individual companies and people in the industry forward as a whole. This year, a number of innovative presentations redefined how BIM can benefit AEC professionals.

Strong attendance at this year’s event, which took place this year in Paris, April 6-7, demonstrated just how much the adoption of BIM tools and technologies has grown in France. The theme of the event, “breaking the innovation code of real estate industry and urban design,” attracted an audience that included software vendors, as well as architects, general contractors and subcontractors.

Dassault Systèmes was on hand with information about all of its product offerings, from the latest versions of CATIA to its 3DEXPERIENCE platform. At the 2016 event, Dassault Systèmes received more than double the number of inquiries compared to last year. Part of that expanded interest could be attributed to presentations given by Dassault representatives and customers.

Collaboration | @Dassault3DS @azahner @THEVERYMANY

In nature, “chrysalis” refers to the metallic-gold shell that encases a butterfly’s metamorphosis.

Like its namesake, the Chrysalis Amphitheater in Merriweather Park, Maryland is making a bold transformation.

The futuristic band shell, designed by Marc Fornes of THEVERYMANY, features a dual-curved steel and aluminum shell over a concrete base.

From curved tubes to custom shingles, the project is a wide-ranging, geometric display made up of many unique panel-types.

Offsite Construction and Prefabrication in Civil Engineering

 
April 14th, 2016 by Akio Moriwaki

click-to-tweetClick to Tweet: Offsite Construction &
Prefabrication in #CivilEngineering | @3DSAEC

Prefabrication is the designing and manufacturing of assemblies under factory conditions, then transporting them to—and assembling them on—a construction site. The technique is most widely used for concrete and steel sections in structures where a particular part or form is repeated many times.

In civil engineering, prefabrication plays a key role in the construction of bridges, roads, tunnels, and more. Prefabrication can be used for:

  • cantilevered decks of elevated bridges in highway projects
  • parapets of expressways and road curbs
  • precast girder units and beams for elevated roadways, tracks, viaducts, and pedestrian footbridges
  • decks for long span bridges
  • tunnel linings, especially for tunnels formed by tunnel boring machine
  • sea walls
  • railway platforms
  • noise barrier panels
  • overhanging ducts and service channels for underground facilities
  • storm water discharge culverts
  • and many other elements of a civil design project

Contributing Factors to the Prefabrication Trend in Civil Engineering

The main reasons for prefabrication construction is to reduce the overall time period of construction time on a project. This time savings can yield significant budget savings.

SMARTER BUILDING

CadMakers Virtual Construction understands that the cost to construct a building is a small percent of the total lifecycle cost the structure. The company thinks it’s just as important to efficiently plan for maintenance as it is to build a structure, which is why CadMakers takes a holistic view of the AEC process.

“People have thought that you can’t use manufacturing best practices in AEC because everything is different in our industry,” explained Javier Glatt, co-founder and CEO of CadMakers, a service company built to streamline the AEC industry and has executed 35 projects worth over US$3 billion in construction value since early 2014. “But new technologies, such as the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, are enabling this industry to automate processes and create a lot of value.”

Zahner is an internationally acclaimed engineering and fabrication company best known for its highly crafted architectural metalwork.

One of Zahner’s recent projects, the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), demonstrates how supply chain integration can help move complex buildings quickly to completion.

KPF principal Trent Tesch brought Zahner onto the project during its early stages to prove to the owner that the proposed façade — a complex swirling structure of stainless steel ribbons—would indeed be possible to fabricate.

BIM: A Game Changer for Civil Design

The AEC industry is moving toward embracing a collaborative environment. It is crucial that owners, designers, engineers, and fabricators have simultaneous and real-time access to design models and project data.

AEC business leaders are advocating for Building Information Modeling (BIM) as the future of infrastructure projects worldwide.

Adopting BIM technologies into the civil design process will enable stakeholders to instantly collaborate with each other on an integrated design platform. BIM can provide for digital sharing and collaborating of models, instead of individually working from drawings.
