Constructible Models and Collaboration Tools Enabled Project Efficiency and Accuracy
When High Concrete Group was asked to help bring an 8547 sq m (92,000 sq h) office building at 1200 Intrepid Avenue to life, it was up for the challenge. Later, they were also rewarded for their work as this project received the 2016 Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award from the PCI Institute. Located at the Navy Yard's Corporate Center in Philadelphia, a master-planned development within the Navy Yard encompassing approximately 125,400 sq m (1.35 million sq h), the Intrepid building is constructed entirely of flat concrete planks. Each piece is set at an angle, so the composition gradually becomes a curving wall with mesmerizing optical effects that make the front wall appear as though it is falling to the ground like a row of dominos. Three sides of the structure are conventional flat walls, while the east facade has a variety of radii, ranging from just over 98 m (320 h) at the ground floor to just over 2,713 m (8,900 h) at the parapet of the roof.
Precast building projects tend to run smoothly because of the forethought and planning of the project participants. Usually there are far fewer RFIs, errors and redos than in site-built projects because team members have worked out key details early on in the project. To help prepare you for a smooth-running project we offer these technical resources.
Design Tools and Resources offers examples of 3D modeling based that can be based on BIM and other inputs. A list of precast companion products is also included.
Technical Specs and Documentation is where you'll find CAD details and guide specifications that you can customize with your project info and print, save or email in PDF, Word and HTML formats.
StructureCare®is a service and consulting resource focused on developing and implementing preventive maintenance programs for garages of all construction types.
