TRC Worldwide Engineering, Wexler Associates Featured in Modern Steel ConstructionFebruary 1, 2010
TRC Worldwide Engineering's Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital project in Lafayette, Louisiana, and Wexler Associates' The PowerHouse project in Long Island City, New York, were featured in recent articles in Modern Steel Construction.
With an overall construction scheduled that called for erecting 3,000 tons of structural steel in five months, TRC Worldwide Engineering (TRC WW) of Brentwood, Tennessee, took a proactive stance to meet the aggressive schedule.
TRC WW imported a RAM model directly into SDS/2, which eliminated the need to recreate a detailing model from 2D drawings and allowed the steel detailers to keep up with the aggressive erection schedule.
The PowerHouse in Long Island City, New York, built in 1906, served as part of the power-generating system for the Long Island and Pennsylvania Railroads. After being decommissioned in the 1980s, the facility is now being converted into a condominium with 427 residential units.
Wexler Associates prepared the structural design and steel shop drawings in SDS/2 as part of the BIM project approach.
