Shoring Tower & Safety Components

Adjustable Forms bought Tekla structures to utilize Building Information Modelling, which is now an integral part of its operations.

However Adjustable Forms Inc found that while an excellent tool Tekla Structures was missing a few of the items needed to complete the level of detail they needed

Using the Custom Component feature of Tekla they could build the components they needed, they had the option to build the components themselves, but to speed up the process they decided to sub let the work out to DM-BIM-Consulting.

The first set of components created were for a shoring tower to Adjustable Forms Inc specifications, plus safety netting and safety straps.

These components would enable Adjustable Forms Inc to make accurate models for better quantity take offs, improving their project offering during estimation and construction



Formwork Calculation Tool

Adjustable Forms Inc soon found another area which they needed improving. Formwork area calculation.

We developed a tool that applied surface treatments to all specified faces on selected objects. Connecting faces and openings were automatically removed. These surface treatments could then easily and accurately be reported using the tools available in Tekla Structures. We also created a specific report to report the data as needed.

straps.
