Tesco Sheringham in United Kingdom by Pinnacle

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Article source: Tekla

Pinnacle used BIM technology in the development of a bespoke Tesco Stores Ltd Supermarket design in Sheringham, Norfolk.

BIM allowed the design team to combine the architect’s and mechanical engineer’s 3D models along with their own steel, timber and reinforced concrete model created in Tekla.  The BIM process provided a greater understanding of parametric relationships between disciplines, preventing co-ordination issues during the construction phase.

Kawanishi Fam in Kurashiki, Okayama, Japan by TTArchitects

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Article source: TTArchitects

Kawanishi Fam is situated in an industrial estate in close proximity to Kurashiki station. It was originally a warehouse used for roasting coffee, but we renovated it to create an open office space. We used the top floor of the four story warehouse due to the lasting impression of the characteristically shaped ceiling, which takes the same form as the original sloped roofing of the warehouse. This ceiling was the primary motivation for us in deciding to undertake the renovation in its current location.
