The client mobilized a pre-cast plant near to the construction site. The bridge consisted of approximately 120 Pre-cast segments reinforced with steel rebar. Due to the time period established by NSW Government for project completion, it was crucial to provide a full detailed take-off to determine the exact tonnage of rebar, which was required to be bent at Active Steel’s main production facility & transported to the pre-cast plant for assembly & casting.
Through completing all designs in REVIT this provided a significant
time saving when completing alterations & addressing clashes which would populate updated drawings within hours, rather than days. The above allowed the updated drawings to be sent to fabricators within the extremely narrow programme for the project to achieve its funding gateway.
– A total of 169 precast segments are required on the development
– In excess of 1,800 tonnes of reinforcing steel required for the precast segments
