Bringing the Capitol Cove model to the field
During the current initial stages of construction, the Capitol Cove VDC team is using the model to provide information to the field staff.
To date, concrete quantities have been extracted from the model; calculations have been accurate to the 0.1 yd3, having the potential to drastically reduce waste.
3D visualizations of foundation work has enabled the field staff to catch inconsistencies between the architectural and structural designs that could affect sealing the building envelope if not found. These visualizations provide the superintendent with views that aren’t focused on in the structural drawings, enabling better communication with subcontractors and potentially more accurate construction.
