New Dewan Undangan Negeri Building Bina puri sdn Bhd
Reinforcing the image of strength and stability, the Dewan
Undangan Negeri (DUN) building in Malaysia will provide
state-of-the-art facilities for the Dewan state legislative assembly
and its members. The complex is configured in a star formation
with nine radiating points. Rising to a height of 27. 5 meters,
each section of the star will have a separate pyramid roof.
The center of the building is a massive atrium framed by nine
massive arches that support the DUN hall nearly 40 meters

above. The arches merge with intricate floor beams creating
a tree-like effect within.
Bina Puri Sdn Bhd used MicroStation and Bentley Architecture
2D drafting and 3D modeling capabilities to design, visualize,
and analyze the building’s many complex structures. Because
of its interoperability with other applications, interferences
were easily detected and managed across multiple files.
Fabsec, the leading expert in the field of plated beams,
developed a link between its FBEAM Cellular Beam design
software and Bentley’s RAM Structural System. By joining
the productivity of the RAM Structural System design model
and the expertise of Fabsec, structural engineers can now
fully design an entire building with Fabsec beams.
Engineers initially model Fabsec beams within the 3D RAM
design model. Using the model browser integrated into FBEAM,
members to be designed as Fabsec beams are selected
graphically and, through the data exchange, FBEAM seamlessly links all pertinent information from the model. Once in
Fabsec software, the process of designing Fabsec beams is
virtually at a click of a button, and a process that previously
took hours now takes seconds.
