Richmond Project

“The client had a very tight site in Richmond,” said Darren Cole-Sinclair of Orbit Solutions. “Tilt-Up Panel construction was to be used to develop two dwellings on the site. Nearly every panel was a different size and shape. This would normally have been a challenge for most CAD systems, however we developed a new feature to our ArchiCAD system : the Pre-Cast Panel. This saved time, produced three dimensional automated and accurately specified panels, and helped in the design development. The panels were assembled and checked visually by the structural engineer and concreter. This automated the process at the press of a button. The tool has since received endorsement by Graphisoft, the producers of ArchiCAD.” Orbit Solutions have generously shared their initiative in the spirit of advancing the industry’s technological tools.
