The case describes how creating collaboration among all engineering disciplines was one of the biggest challenges because the project involved civil, structural, electrical and mechanical disciplines. “With CADWorx we were able to create individual models and have multiple designers work on them simultaneously”, said Wade Foehrenbach, technical supervisor at Stantec. Using CADWorx and interfacing with CAESAR II allowed Stantec to create individual 3D models for reference among these multiple disciplines, to export bills of material early in the project for procurement and CAESAR II files with support locations for the stress engineers, and to create piping isometrics with ISOGEN for fabrication and erection. Placing piping restraints in CADWorx saved Stantec numerous hours because stress engineers did not have to manually input geometry and support locations within CAESAR II. The case also explains how 3D modeling in CADWorx saved costs and reduced interferences on the project.
Founded in 1954, Stantec provides professional consulting services in planning, engineering, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, surveying, environmental sciences, project management and project economics for infrastructure and facilities projects. Approximately 9,000 employees operate out of more than 150 locations in North America. Stantec’s Scarborough, Maine, office was mainly involved with the Sammis project in Ohio.
