Problem: Traditional in-situ formwork for a 60 level residential tower is slow.
Solution: Identified time and cost savings in the early design stage by prefabricating 75 no. steel reinforced columns weighing 4.5 tonnes each.
Petroleum Storage Tanks – Clyde Terminal
Problem: Circular reinforcing pattern presented significant challenges for manufacture and assembly of petroleum storage tanks.
Solution: Prepared 2D and 3D concepts to help design engineers visualise the reinforcement layout, reduce waste, detect potential steel clashes, and produce detailed bar bending schedule and site marking plans.
Water Treatment Tanks
Problem: Traditional reinforcement for the construction of complex water tanks would be slow
Solution: ADDA identified a modular method of incorporating uni-directional prefabricated mats as the most efficient method to construct the reinforcing steel elements.
Class 1 Nuclear structure
Problem: A Class 1 Nuclear structure had not been delivered in over 10 years due to existing projects incurring significant delays. The delays were related to reinforcement complexity, and the inability of traditional 2D reinforcement detailing failing to deal with the complexity of the project, including failing to print construction drawings.
Solution: ADDA successfully delivered a DfMA reinforcement detailing solution for the Class 1 Nuclear Structure.
Airbus Testing Facility
Problem: Program acceleration required so Airbus could start wing manufacturing.
Solution: A modular method of incorporating prefabrication and carpet reinforcement was proposed during ADDA design and detailing.
Problem: All subcontractor project documents removed from site after Subcontractor goes into Administration.
Solution: With ADDA engaged from project start, our DFMA 3D reinforcement model was used as a visual aid to assist main contractor and new subcontractor.
