A customized, standalone modular construction presents challenges of squeezing functionality and durability into a tiny package.
Delivery of a complete module from our shop to the site in New Jersey placed constraints on its overall height. With maximum load height, minimum parapet depth and minimum finished ceiling heights, we had very little room in the ceiling cavity to incorporate mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems as well as other infrastructure.
With the clarity and precision of a 3D HD-BIM model, we were able to develop an intricate and compact weave of systems, without sacrificing the form or function of the finished module.
A circular, CNC-router-cut curb embed, complete with riser locations and indexing connections allowed field trades to rough in supply and waste lines, as well as electrical and data lines without risk of misalignment.
We used a single High Definition Building Information Model to coordinate multiple systems and components in very cramped and congested conditions. By solving everything in the model, our shop trades could assemble the module from a kit of parts, with no cut-to-fit or conflicting conditions.
