Penrith new Squares, Multistory car Park
Penrith, United Kingdom
As a new multistory car park for the redevelopment of the town center in the
north of England, this project featured an innovative façade treatment based
on an exact-scale reproduction of the stunning topography of nearby Lake
District National Park. The concept involved a visually complex façade with
over 2,500 unique façade panels.
The Bentley software used on this project allowed a small team to design
a very complex façade and supply that information directly into the
manufacturing process, saving months of drawing work. The products took
information directly from the 3D model to reduce the number of drawings
required. When drawings were required, the 3D model was again used as the
basis for producing all traditional 2D information.

Norrebro Bryghus Bar – Copenhagen Airport
Developing an identifiable airport bar for Danish microbrewery norrebro
Bryghus at Copenhagen Airport was this project’s primary goal. The design
team had to fulfill client intentions while communicating those intentions to
the airport. It also had to manage space constraints and communicate with its
manufacturer to meet a very tight schedule.
Utilizing MicroStation, TriForma, and Bentley Architecture, the project team
communicated by creating visualizations using a 3D model. This identified
potential problems, created a forum to discuss solutions, and allowed the
team to communicate ideas effectively and effortlessly. The manufacturer
also used the model as a basis for its computer-driven construction process.
