Architecture / Residential / Mixed-use Building
More Case Studies
PGT’s scope is to create an LOD 300 Structural model of a Residential + Retail complex for Construction purpose as per Belgium Codes, Standards and Articles.
The project consists of two levels of underground parking and 10 towers consisting of Residential, Retail and Hotel scattered across the site.
Solution provided by PGT:
PGT is involved in working alongside customer and suggesting better/effective ways of performing tasks wherever and whenever possible. Along with this, PGT is also involved in communicating if any standard/code in the project file does not meets the Belgium Standards, keeping the timely deadlines in schedule.
Benefits / Challenges:
The major challenge was to learn, understand and pass on to our team members the Belgium codes and standard of BIM modelling along with Dutch construction terminologies. Furthermore, PGT had started creating the Structural model at an earlier stage when a Structural Engineer was not finalised for the project. Thus, we had to use Preliminary Architectural drawings to identify, interpret and create a Structural model keeping in mind the possibility of revisions to avoid future rework as much as possible.
Client feedback /appreciation if any
"The team works hard and is willing to put in extra effort to hid deadlines, even when they are given at short notice. They seem to have a great understanding of the job requirements and can therefore produce effective modeling, drawings, RFI, etc. It is a real pleasure to work with the Pangulf Team! "

"Working with Pan Gulf have been good so far, they are very responsible and very proactive. Obviously at this point of the Job, I am just able to provide feedback on detailing and fabrication stage. Once the erection process starts, I can have a better idea on how good and clear the drawings are for our erection crew"

"It will take time to get the quality of drawings to Excellent – part of the reason is that our Revit models have a very unique workflow and have to be modelled very specifically to support our AR/VR and Estimating/QTO requirements. "
