Our client is a reputed Swedish company and is the largest prefabrication specialist in Sweden. They specialize in delivery of prefabricated concrete building systems, right from conceptual design to erection. This helps them to build structures economically, safely and quickly.

Precast Concrete Detailing and BIM Modelling

This is a residential project comprising 4 buildings and 6 storeys, offering 118 high-standard apartments, and located in Stockholm, Sweden.

The StruEngineers team was tasked with the detailing of all solid (internal) walls, sandwich walls, balcony slabs, beams, columns and steel elements. As part of the service we also prepared a BIM model for the project.

Each precast concrete building has a height of around 23 m, and includes a built-up area of around 5,872 sqm.

Adapting to Project Requirements

Rigorous coordination amongst the team was needed for such a huge residential project. The number of different parties and agencies involved allso made this a challenging task.

Production targets meant that the StruEngineers team started work on production drawings at a very premature stage. This meant a number of early assumptions and solutions provided using limited information.

Because of this, frequent modifications to the architectural drawings meant a lof of changes to production drawings, and our adaptability in this regard was critical.

Dedicated Team & Precast Experience

We provided our client with a dedicated team of engineers working on different projects with multiple factories in Sweden, giving them a centralized resource base.

Our prior knowledge and experience in the precast industry, plus ability to work in the local language was a huge advantage.

Effective communication via video conferencing and remote sharing tools helped to bridge different factories across Sweden, and ultimately resulted in better coordination between our team and the client.

StruEngineers provided a connection library prepared in BIM, which was used in preparing 3D erection drawings. This was made possible due to a dedicated BIM expert working for the client.

“Working with StruEngineers helped us in efficient resource management and reducing our cost structures.”
