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.
