A DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCY’S “FEARLESS AND CREATIVE” HQ

Sq1, a digital marketing agency, recently opened its renovated HQ in downtown Dallas. The space is located in the Landmark Center Building, formerly occupied by the FBI (indeed, it’s where they brought Lee Harvey Oswald after his arrest). Onto that history, Sq1 has layered some of their own, taking pains to see that the new space, with its open work areas and meeting rooms, fully reflects the companies core values: Fearless, Curious, Strategic, and Creative.

PISELLI RESTAURANT IN SAO PAULO

PISELLI RESTAURANT IN SAO PAULO

PISELLI RESTAURANT IN SAO PAULOPISELLI RESTAURANT IN SAO PAULO

The latest architectural creation by Eric Carlson and his office CARBONDALE in Paris & Sao Paulo is the high-end culinary establishment, Piselli. This new restaurant is situated in the heart of one of Sao Paulo’s most renowned interior public spaces, the central plaza within the Iguatemi Faria Lima building. The 3,000 square meter 4-story high Main Plaza was itself also recently transformed by CARBONDALE into a luxurious volume lined in travertine stone, naturally illuminated by a structurally avant-garde sculptural skylight, and punctuated by a lush pixelized stepping central garden.

Nestled within the vegetal oasis and bathed in sunlight, Eric’s unique design for Piselli was conceived as a Restaurant in the Garden. To enhance the outdoor atmosphere further, a green ring of foliage that embraces the entire space, covered dining terrace extends out into the garden and a discrete garden path leads guests to an exclusive entry.

PISELLI RESTAURANT IN SAO PAULO

A magical veil of suspended floor-to-ceiling strands composed of polished gold plated solid brass bars vertically wrap the periphery of the 6-meter high restaurant. These ethereal chards of reflected light appear as luminous golden threads that define the restaurants volume and the establishments’ luxurious identity as an elegant Architectural treasure chest.

The restaurant’s interior is spatially delimited by a raised cumaru wood parquet flooring, and above, by a floating monumental box ceiling finished in a high polished lacquer smoked cedar paneling. The large timber surfaces establish the warm, rich interior ambiance while the dramatic highly reflective ceiling beautifully reflects the adjacent planting and flowers adding to the illusive and ephemeral enchantment. Rather than a restaurant defined by it’s walls, CARBONDALE’s bold approach introduces a sculptural collage of orthogonally composed floating timber frames that create intimacy by subdividing the large volume, define the central bar and decidedly establish the distinctive character and identity of the Piselli. The frames are filled with a delicate brass mesh and are edge-lit to create a wash of warm light within the space and enhance the cozy evening atmosphere. Copied from yellowtrace.

The Future of BIM Conference 2015, Salford University

The Future of BIM Conference 2015, Salford University

The day consisted of various presentations from leading BIM academics and sponsors to an attentive audience. Delegates came from other UK universities, software businesses and local authority representatives.

A complete digital construction industry?

Following a warm welcome from Salford University’s Professor Jason Underwood, in which the speaker outlined the transformation to the construction industry that BIM will ultimately deliver, Peter Trebilcock from Balfour Beatty then highlighted some of the benefits of BIM to recent projects with the key message being how BIM can mitigate risk and ultimately ensure financial savings and reduced costs. One delegate asked Peter how far away he thought we were from a complete digital construction industry – to which Peter suggested about two years, before adding that the USA were ninety-nine per cent there already, implying that it was inevitable in the UK and elsewhere.

When to adopt BIM?

Dr Alan Jones from Environmental Design Solutions Ltd then gave a talk expanding on their thermal analysis software processes and explained the benefits this could bring to BIM, followed by an engaging talk from Daniel Leech from the TDS Academy. Dan explained from an SME perspective the reasons behind BIM adoption, or potential lack of it, citing age, ego and experience as all being factors in adoption decisions. For TDS Midlands Ltd, trying to encourage BIM adoption earlier in the construction process is seen as vital to their success as a business in the long term – with obvious benefits to their clients. He stated that BIM is not a 3D model, it’s a process – and whilst 3D modelling is a valuable component of BIM – the benefits of BIM do not rest entirely on visualisation. This was a point repeated by different speakers throughout the day, by Business Collaborator’s Paul Houghton and Rick Cooper and by Salford University’s Visiting Professor Martin Simpson, who said:

“BIM is not about buying a piece of software out of a box…fundamentally, it’s about sharing structured information”.

Structured and shareable data

It was the focus on data, structured information sharing and semantic web technologies that were key to the learning outcomes of this conference and to the future of BIM, and together with presentations from various companies such as Asite, Bentley, Atlas Cloud, Weinerberger and Steljes, and with much focus on the Common Data Environment (CDE), it was an insightful day.

Perhaps though, the most passionate presentation came from Nicholas Nisbet from buildingSMART. He stated categorically that BIM was about semantic technologies, linked and structured data. He said that the biggest problem with BIM was the ‘B’ – when in fact the most important aspect of BIM is that “it’s simply about shareable, structured information”.

Memorable quotes of the day

Nicholas Nisbet, buildingSMART: “B in BIM is the big problem…It’s simply about shareable, structured information.”

Martin Simpson, Arup Group: “BIM isn’t about buying a piece of software out of a box…it’s about sharing structured information.”

Paul Daynes, Cadventure Ltd: “The Common Data Environment…it’s not just thinking about what you do, it’s thinking about the next person who has access to that information.”

Paul Surin, Wienerberger Ltd: “We want to be in BIM because otherwise there will be a big cost…”

Chris Southern, Steljes Ltd: “A team that shares will out-gun a group of individuals everytime.”

Paul Houghton, Business Collaborator Ltd: “BIM Level 6 – world peace!”

Why should my structural BIM software deliver LOD 350/400 out of the box?

Clients globally are increasingly expecting their project teams to deliver more than just 3d models, they are looking for measurable value beyond just BIM.

Institute of Architects have clarified this BIM value expectation with a guidance document ‘Building Information Modeling Protocol Form’ which was formed the basis for BIM industry wide consultation document.

Is your Structural Model ready to embrace the demands of Clients who rightly ask for more value from every stage of the design process?

Join our organization and discover:

  • What is L.O.D. (Level of Development) and why are Clients asking for this to be able to measure progress in their projects
  • What are the consequences using software that cannot achieve a sufficient Level of Development?
  • What are the advantages to the Client, to the Design Team and to the Construction Team of being able to deliver high L.O.D. models at any point of the structural design process from Engineer to Contractor from one Structural software package.

6 Transportation Design Classes

Don’t Miss these 6 Transportation Design Classes from AU 2015 – Now Online!

As you may know by now, many of the classes from Autodesk University 2015 are now online and available for free viewing. If you’re a civil or transportation engineer/designer this is good news since many of these classes provide tips and tricks for working smarter and getting more from your Autodesk software investments.

Here’s a roundup of a few of the classes worth watching (they also include downloadable handouts so you can keep those tips handy):

Do You Cross the Bridge or Fade Away?

This class, hosted by Michelle Rasmussen a Senior Instructional Designer with ASCENT, explores some tricks for exploring a preliminary bridge design in the context of its surroundings using InfraWorks 360.

Michelle uses InfraWorks’ Bridge Design software to analyze the bridge in the cloud. She then runs a line girder analysis to verify the structural strength of the bridge girders and ensure they meet design standard requirements. Then she takes the design into Navisworks project review software to uncover design problems and constructability issues more effectively an plan the construction sequencing. The InfraWorks model is then taken into AutoCAD Civil 3D software for precise grading. Finally, Michelle round trips the model back into InfraWorks for better design communication with stakeholders and the public.

6 Transportation Design Classes

LiDAR and BIM in Civil Design

Presented by Rusty Steel and Bartley Estes of CEC // Infrastructure Solutions, this session explores how civil engineers can use a combination of LiDAR-derived existing models with BIM. The class delves into how you can handle LiDAR in ReCapreality capture and 3D scanning software and prepare it for design use, as well as how LiDAR data can be used in models in InfraWorks 360, 3ds Max, and brought into AutoCAD Civil 3D to create and design from.

Watch the class.

Addressing Complex Designs with AutoCAD Civil 3D

Most roadway designs become complex due to the situations involved in the location of the design. Straight roads and even intersections are not likely in real-world situations. Presented by Russ Nicloy of MasterGraphics, this session discusses what options are available, and when or when not to use certain tools to address the design needs of projects. Watch the class.

Collaborating with BIM Products

This class is interesting because it has a particular emphasis on how to build a parking lot and roundabouts with Vehicle Tracking. From preliminary road, roundabout and bridge design in InfraWorks 360 to collaborating with AutoCAD Civil 3D and sharing outputs in Autodesk 360 cloud collaboration platform.  The class is presented by Tony Carcamo (BIG RED DOG Engineering), Tom Richardson (MWM DesignGroup), and Juan Soto (Kimley-Horn).

Advanced Grading for Aviation

If you’re involved in the tricky business of grading on an aviation site this class gives examples of using the Subassembly Composer software to create custom grading subassemblies in Civil 3D and the advanced grading you can complete. This workflow creates huge advantages for the end user and speeds design changes. The session is presented by Christopher Roberts Pye an Autodesk Certified Instructor with STEWART.

Watch the class.

Create Your Local Design Rules and Content for InfraWorks 360

This session looks at how InfraWorks 360 users can create localized design rules for the design roads created with the roadway design module. You’ll also learn how to create localized content for pavement drainage networks and analysis. This class is presented by Autodesk’s Peter Ingels. Copied from Technically speaking.

Full funding in place for “Boland’s Quay” Development

Boland Quay, previously known as Boland Mill, has full funding of £170M in place.

After the approval from Dublin City Council for a £170M redevelopment of the historic Boland’s Mill site in Dublin’s docklands, Mark Reynolds of Savills has confirmed that full funding has been made available by The National Asset Management Association (NAMA).

Boland’s Mill will now be rebranded as Boland’s Quay, one of the first schemes to be undertaken through the fast-track planning system for the docklands.

The planning application, which was submitted to Dublin County Council in December 2014, is the latest to be approved since the Dublin docklands were designated a strategic development zone (SDZ).

Mr Reynolds submitted a planning application in July for the development of almost 30,000sq m of office space for approximately 2,300 workers, 42 apartments, shops, cafes restaurants and a number of new public squares and plazas.

Mr Reynolds commented: “The development of Boland’s Quay is now full steam ahead. We are delighted with NAMA’s commitment to funding its construction, as it enables us to move forward with the certainty that our plans for the site will come to fruition. This will be the most significant construction project this city has seen over the past 10 years and it has been supported by the SDZ fast-track planning scheme introduced by Dublin City Council, which has seen us bring the project from planning stages to development in less than a year.”

The Nama-backed development involves the construction of three new office and residential blocks and the restoration of the five original, but now derelict, mill buildings. The tallest building will be 14 storeys and 53 metres in height. A 15 storey block has also been planned, with a height of 47.8m. The third new building will be 13 storeys and up to 49 metres.

The scheme, which was designed by architectural practise Burke Kennedy Doyle, is expected to take over two years to complete. Copied from UK construction online.

Modelling Best practise tip – part 2

Modelling Best practise tip – part 2

Modelling Best practise tip – part 2

As noted by Jay Zallan on twitter, my previous post actually didn’t provide an exact answer, but in many ways that was the reason for the post, remember the skin a cat part?. 🙂 But what Jay did do was start a debate about potential ways to solve this issue & this crowd sourced a great discussion, so thank you Jay. I always liked to be challenged, as whilst I have knowledge in the use of Revit (hopefully) there are many ways to do things & I love to capture everybody’s thoughts, one of the beauties of twitter & social media. So the conclusion from the debate was as follows & btw I am not taking credit for this. This goes to all those that challenged the post I made; they are the real hero’s here.:-

  • Edit sketch profile is bad, causes too many down stream issues; probably very true in many cases. but not all situation. Use with care.
  • Whilst the 4 wall solution provided an answer, its was probably not the best configuration. Instead model the walls as indicated below. Thanks to Robert Manna for this suggestion. This approach not only provides good wall clean ups, it ensures quality IFC exports.

Modelling Best practise tip – part 2

  • Wall joins from the wall configuration above…nice clean ups.

Modelling Best practise tip – part 2

As a test & thanks for Rob at Bond Bryan for this, if you IFC this configuration from Revit, whilst you end up with 4 walls, when you IFC the result back into Revit, the model comes back perfect. Even the wall joins are good,

Modelling Best practise tip – part 2

Using edit wall profile, IFC the walls, its fine in an IFC viewer, but re-import into Revit & you get a real mess. I would guess its the same for any other <insert preferred BIM application here>.

Hopefully this crowd sourced information will be useful to you, but even the, remember that cat, as it probably needs a new skin.

AN AD AGENCY’S UNCONVENTIONAL REDESIGN THAT WOWED EMPLOYEES AND CLIENTS

TMAdvertising‘s redesign of their Dallas office, by Gensler and HKS Architects, Inc., is light, bright, and unconventional, reflecting the company’s desire to surprise clients with an innovative, creative approach.

The office has a softened industrial look, with intentionally exposed ventilation in the ceilings, flooring made of a material commonly used for placemats, and two huge LED “super-screens” that showcase the TM brand in the public plaza outside their office. TM Advertising also takes an unconventional approach to the way their employees work: though there is no formal work-from-home policy, the company recognizes that most of their employees work 24/7/365 and need mobility, and fosters a flexible environment of “casual, creative professionalism”. We reached out to Gensler designer Christopher Goggin, and Ann Kifer, their regional public relations director, to find out more.

AN AD AGENCY’S UNCONVENTIONAL REDESIGN THAT WOWED EMPLOYEES AND CLIENTS

Which furniture brands/dealers were used? Please touch upon any notable products, how they were used, and if they solved a specific problem.

The challenge was to create an environment that promotes creativity and invigorates employees. The open plan office uses Antenna Workspaces Big Table by Knoll, which offers a collaborative work setting that can support groups of any size in open plan environments, touch-down spaces and meeting areas. Mounted wood cabinets, attached to the Big Table center beam, offer additional storage while extension tops and storage cabinets, supported by extended rails, delineate space. Template storage and Antenna Workspaces mobile pedestals provide file storage and define boundaries between individual workstations. The company’s private offices also feature Antenna Workspaces desks and wall mounted overhead storage elements to create highly efficient focused work areas. Lane Office Interiors, a New York City Knoll dealer was selected due to its association with Interpublic Group, TM Advertising’s parent company.

A range of other product lines rounds out the conferencing, lounge, and collaborative spaces. A custom bar table by Studios 1019 is a centerpiece of the 5th floor multipurpose space and was fabricated from an old growth black walnut tree felled by a storm in upstate New York, and we installed 21,000 square feet of Chilewich Plynyl® Tile Flooring — made from a material more commonly used for placemats — and installed it in a color-alternating pattern. Copied from work design magazine.
