With their prefabricated Flexwall product and vast experience in the field, Pre-Con are leaders in the Canadian precast market. Their projects often require great flexibility due to changing client requirements, and this poses significant challenges. Timely delivery of production drawings and construction documents is paramount, directly affecting the casting schedule of the precast elements and erection on site.
Pre-con Canada Erection & Production Drawing
As part of Pre-Con’s latest collaboration with the StruEngineers team, we provided erection and production drawings along with bar bending schedule, erection material lists and reports for a project with a total area of 170,000 sq. ft. Working closely alongside their in-house team, we could react quickly to any changes or modifications needed. Our ability to provide Pre-Con with a settled and exclusive support team and knowledge of their standards enabled us to keep pace with their project demands and schedules.
On demand engineering resources
Working alongside StruEngineers’ India brought its own benefits to the client. The time difference between India and Canada offered a mutual advantage, as Pre-Con Canada could send instructions and our team could respond and get to work overnight. This means turnaround times were quick, and pressure on project schedules was reduced. An exclusive and dedicated team working on their projects meant consistency in the quality of work provided. Of course, knowledge of international building standards was a prerequisite for effective co-operation.
A single point of contact at StruEngineers, and using BIMcontact, a cloud-based collaboration tool, meant any miscommunication was avoided. All project related data was readily available at both ends, document revisions were clear, thereby removing the need for confusing email trails and attachments. With fluctuating project workflows, our ability to make engineering resources available on demand contributed to the successful completion of Pre-Con projects and gave them flexible support as needed and freed them from costly overheads.
“Reflecting on 2020, we (the PreCon Engineering team), appreciate StruEngineers’ support and efforts to successfully complete our project together.”
