Architectural and structural 2d conversion for Capitol Cove completed
The architectural and structural 2d conversion for Capitol Cove was completed on August 28th, 2007 — right on time (and on budget, thanks for asking!).
The success of the project is largely attributed to the open lines of communication between the members of the modeling team. Mohamed Aboulezz, the Virtual Construction Planner who handled on the project, says, “I believe that this has been our best project yet. We have learned a lot from our past experiences, and it really shows in the model.”
Upon completion, the model was presented to the owner and architect, who were impressed with the effort and excited to use it during the construction of the building.
The team is currently working on modeling the mechanical, plumbing, electrical and fire protection systems. The architectural and structural models will be integrated with the systems models to assist with MEP coordination. The models will also be used to facilitate scheduling and constructability.
