Client Profile

Leading Cement Manufacturer in UAE
Industry: Cement Manufacturing

Objective.

Hitech provided shop drawings of a boiler support structure, based on a STAAD. Pro model prepared by client’s structural design team. Because the steel connections were too heavy for modeling, every steel member’s location was changed after importing it in TEKLA. Other design firms were also working on the same project and task; but we delivered the best results well within the deadlines. Our TEKLA model won the “TEKLA MODEL COMPETITION” and was recognized by Tekla India.

Business Needs.

  • General Arrangement drawings
  • Assembly drawings
  • Part drawings
  • Build up a supporting structure for new boiler in cement plant
  • Clash detection and resolution to save time & cost

Challenges.

  • Lump sum mass at the top of structure 55 meters high, in form of a boiler was to be assumed to execute the project.
  • Import the STAAD model into TEKLA & work on it while changing all member locations according to actual drawings.
  • Steel connections to be done, were too heavy for TEKLA modeling.
  • Other design firms developing the same structure model – simultaneously.

Hitech’s Solution.

Tower height with a top structure in form of a boiler made it instable under earthquake forces, and to counter it, Tekla modeling of heavy beam-beam, beam-column, bracing connections was done. The model was then exported to Navisworks to remove possible clashes, and detailed shop drawings were prepared to streamline the execution process.
