New York City Department of Buildings Approves First 3-D BIM Site Safety Plans

Turner Construction released their ground-breaking BIM Site Safety article in May 2012.

Turner Construction Company Received Approval for Building Information Model (BIM)-based Site Safety Plans

3D BIM Site Safety Plans Enable Building Inspectors to Take Virtual Tours of Construction Projects and Review them in Real Time on the Construction Site. Continue Reading >>

In August 2012, Turner Construction, provided a BIM Design-Build Healthcare Success Case Study for the Fort Benning Hospital at our DBIA - Federal Sector Conference in Washington DC.

The Turner Construction case-study, shared how they used the hospital BIM model to provide a dramatically safer construction process for their workers. In addition, the revised process increased the Turner Construction worker's output twelve-fold; thereby improving the construction schedule.

Description of Improved MEP Hanger Installation Construction Process:

Turner Construction is using a BIM-based construction process; that delivers a dramatically faster process for installing MEP hanger inserts; while providing a substantially safer work environment for construction workers.

The BIM process has enabled sub-contractors to connect geographically-position (GPS) technology and BIM facility files to create a way-finding, installation system. Turner teams collect hanger point locations; from the GPS coordinated BIM file (In the Office) for layout in the field.

Traditionally, MEP hanger inserts were installed from the underside of the deck; after the concrete topping was poured. We used a ladder (Less safe), drilling up into the underside of concrete. One worker could install approximately 20 holes a day.

The GPS \ BIM-enabled process, empowers a crew of 3 workers to install (From top of metal deck and walking with no ladder needed– (Safer) to install 750 hanger inserts\day.

Installation is much faster and safer – Simply walk to a hanger insert location using the GPS device --and screw in the threaded rods for pipe hanger racks, cable tray, electrical conduit racks, etc.

This is an excellent example of a time-saving, safer, and more efficient process to install 100,000+ hanger inserts into metal deck before concrete topping is poured.

Download Bradley HS Undermount Basin Revit Family Library

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 12, 2016 7:45:00 AM

A 2-year collaborative design and manufacturing project between HOK Product Design and Bradley Corporation --has produced the solid-surface Terreon®, HS Undermount Basin Products with the HS Undermount Basin Revit Library.

The seamless, shallow, -nearly flat bottom basins (sink bowls) were designed to meet ADA accessibility for healthcare, school, laboratory and other design markets.

The HS Basin Revit Library includes the HS Oval, Square and Rectangular Basins.

Designers can specify and order Bradley Terreon® sheet stock as countertop material and thereby, incorporate the HS Basins into casework and millwork countertops.

The HS basins are also bowl options in Bradley's prefabricated, solid surface Omnideck Lavatory Product Line. The Omnideck Revit Family Library can be downloaded from the same page as the HS Undermount Basins. Custom Omnideck Revit families with the HS basin bowl options available upon request.

Bradley Molded Shapes | Solid-Surface Lavatory Systems - Revit Library

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Mar 10, 2016 11:30:00 AM

Today's innovative buildings' exteriors and interiors are not always designed as orthogonal or linear --which prompted the design options of the Bradley's lavatory deck systems.

Bradley Corporation developed an innovative manufacturing processes to create "molded shapes" from engineered stone (natural quartz and granite) to accent linear design or complement the parabolic curves, arcs and elliptical features within the design interiors.

 

Evero®, Bradley's Natural Quartz is the engineered stone within the molded shapes of the Bradley Verge Lavatory System Series.
