  • Technical Aspects:
    • Started modelling work prior to any design documentation being completed.
    • IFC design delivery, complete with sketches for connection details.
    • Pre Shop drawing approval undertaken using IFC models and Tekla BIMSight.
  • IPD Workflow: “Engaged by design consultant under minor consultant’s agreement”
  • Project Type: Commercial / Industrial
  • Client: McVeigh Consultants
  • Project Year: 2016
  • Project Specifications:
    • 5322 sq/m of warehouse floor space , 218 sq/m Office (single level)  and 187 sq/m Wash bay
  • Steelwork Tonnage:  90 t
  • Cold Rolled ‘Meters’:  6840 l/m
  • Precast tonnage: 756 t
  • Precast Sq/m: 2101 sq/m (One Face)

 

 

Anecdotal:

 

We were engaged by McVeigh to work in an IPD framework, whereby collaboratively we would deliver the builder Shop Detail dwgs and reports earlier than could be expected under traditional workflow methods. Material reports were used in the Tender process to give a more accurate representation of the steelwork tonnage and precast sq/m, in order for the builder to obtain sharper pricing from subcontractors.

We were engaged by Arkhefield to work in an IPD framework, whereby collaboratively we would      deliver the builder Shop Detail dwgs and reports earlier than could be expected under traditional   workflow methods. Material reports were used in the Tender process to give a more accurate representation of the steelwork tonnage and precast sq/m, in order for the builder to obtain sharper pricing from subcontractors.

 

Arkhefield delivered to us the Point Cloud Survey that was done on the project, it was viewed using Internet Explorer and the visual appearance was photographic (highly detailed). We used this viewer to obtain an understanding of  what was on site already as the work we were involved in was for refurbishment of the Leagues Club. The IFC model supplied to us as the design medium from Arkhefield had interface objects modelled, which reflected the Point Cloud Survey. We were able to use these objects as  points of reference for the new steelwork we were detailing.

Whilst this isn’t a very large project, the preplanning of the process to use to undertake the refurbishment is commendable.

  • Project Year: 2013
  • Client: Grocon
  • Project Type: 34 story steel framed highrise
  • IPD Workflow: “Engaged by the builder under minor consultant’s agreement”
  • Scope:

 The scope of work requested and delivered in this contract was three fold.

  1. Firstly, to Develop a detailed 3D model for all structural steel from the Ground Level to he Rooftop, in appropriate steel drafting software. In this instance Steelcad utilised Tekla Structures software. We were to use Aurecon’s design model as a reference but not a direct import; ie the steel model was to be created ‘from scratch’.
  2. Secondly, whilst the modelling works were being completed, identify coordination is sues, clashes, fabrication and erection issues, detailing issues, suggest possibilities for improved efficiency, discover any gaps or shortcomings in the Aurecon information, and generate and resolve RFI’s as required to complete the modelling process.
  3. And thirdly, Extensive coordination was required not only with Aurecon but also with the Architect and Services Consultants to resolve the structural steel design. This included attendance at meetings throughout this process to assist Aurecon in adjusting their design/model to incorporate the changes prompted by our modelling works. This involved embedding one of our lead detailing resources within the Brisbane office of Aurecon.
  •  Steelwork Tonnage: 4000t

 Words from the Contractor:

“Structural steel is on the critical path now and thanks to the design value of having shop drawings

approved as part of contract documents we are ready to erect at least 60% of structure.

Typical design process with Build only contract. Based on executing contract date of 22.11.12 and then Sub contract procurement and letting of Structural steel supply and install package. PBS would of only have 90% of shop drawings complete and estimate around 60% approved by Client and at the best only 10% manufactured if lucky. So the benefits of completing the shop drawings up front will be a considerable factor on mitigating delays. (Wayne Ahrens, PBS)”

This project was used in a presentation delivered at the Revit RTC conference held in Wooloongong in 2012. The speakers were Phil Shanks from Steelcad and Brendan Picton or GHD and the topic of the presentation was labelled “Bridging the Divide” For more information, refer :
