About 10 months ago I was sitting in a design team meeting for the UBC Brock Commons Phase 1 Project (also known as Tall Wood) and the development manager was watching the DELMIA sequencing simulation we created to analyze the assembly process when he said to the team “This is great, in construction we never practice. Every project is different […]

DELMIA Applications for Construction

About 10 months ago I was sitting in a design team meeting for the UBC Brock Commons Phase 1 Project (also known as Tall Wood) and the development manager was watching the DELMIA sequencing simulation we created to analyze the assembly process when he said to the team “This is great, in construction we never practice.

In the next two weeks at Brock Commons Phase 1 all the mass timber elements will be fully encapsulated and the full structure will be complete. There has been a lot of discussion around the speed of construction on this project by leveraging prefabricated elements, with the team erecting 17 levels of mass timber structure in only nine calendar weeks […]

Computational Construction Series Part 6: EKL Scripting for Bus Path Evaluation

It has been a while since we contributed to our computational construction series so here goes. Here’s the use case: One of our projects is a mixed use residential project on top of a podium structure that has an on-grade bus terminal below. We needed to quickly find a way to verify bus paths via simulation and wanted to build […]
