3D Building Warehouse with HVAC, Electrical, and Piping for Pharmaceutical Company cad-phil
CAD-Phil completed a storage and warehouse site in Belgium
for a well-known pharmaceutical company. Requiring high-level security and good manufacturing procedures, these
projects are quality-controlled and constraint-driven by
regulatory authorities. Specific attention in this project was
given to the hVAC system, because pressure specifications
can vary room to room.
Bentley Building Mechanical Systems soft ware was beneficial
in handling the complexity of this building’s design because it
could generate a bill of materials and automatically populate
the quantity specifications for a request for proposal. Since
constructors base their quoting on these quantities, accuracy
is more ensured, and less time and money is lost rectifying
quotes and costs. In addition, the use of 3D modeling and
visualizations provided by Bentley’s BIM solutions, along with
tools to generate 3D PDFs, made it easy to communicate the
design to all parties involved in the project.
Sauda Hydro Power Project norconsult as
The Sauda hydro Power Project is the largest hydro power
project currently under construction in Norway. Reconstruction
and enlargement of the existing power plant will increase the
energy production from the Sauda catchment by approximately
500 GWh per year. Challenges included the geography
— the power plant is built inside a narrow rock cavern — and a
short construction period. In addition, it encompassed multiple
disciplines and involved late decisions that required rapid
Norconsult used Bentley BIM solutions because it needed
powerful software to support collaboration among disciplines.
BIM also automated the creation of more than 450 drawings,
with repeated recreation of all drawings — resulting in time
savings of approximately 30 percent. Overall, the use of 3D
modeling increased efficiency, quality, and safety of the project.
