Project 

This residential complex consists of two buildings positioned in tiers, one above the other, totalling 72 residential units with underground parking. One of the main challenges was the six-storey vehicle lift and its access structures, providing access to an underground parking lot.

The project’s location constraints, including the impossibility of developing an access path to the underground parking lot due to non-construction setbacks, required the design of a vehicle lift that would provide vertical access to the parking lots.

The proposed structure uses three distinct construction materials for its structures and substructures. The lift core and access tunnel are composed of reinforced concrete, while the walkway to the main building and the service staircase are composed of glulam and structural steel, respectively.

User benefits:

The main benefits obtained during the design process with Graitec Advance Design software are as follows:

  • The use of a single platform (Graitec Advance Design) for the design of all structural components, regardless of material, has proven to be a clear advantage in terms of document management and modeling time.
  • In addition, the ease and speed of modelling using Advance Design allowed for continuous accelerated design and real-time assistance to the contractor in the implementation of this Design-Built project. The design modules allowed all the analyses for the design of the structure to essentially be combined in a single mathematical model.
  • Also, the “pressure on selection” tool made it possible to simply model the active pressures induced by the composition fill.
