Detailed engineering models and fabrication

Mecanica used the architecture design to produce detailed engineering models and fabrication details for the complex roof structure.

Mecanica used the architectural design to produce detailed engineering models and fabrication details for both the complex central staircase as well as the wooden mullion grid structure on the façade which holds the glazing.

WHAT IS

The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) project

We were involved in the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) project. This being a Frank Gehry project, the sub-contractors were required to submit a CATIA model to Gehry for approval before commencing the work. Most of these subs did not have CATIA or were not willing to invest in buying the software and finding a resource or 2 to complete their portion of the project. Instead we were hired to take their know-how and translate it into a CATIA 3D Model which was forwarded to Gehry for approval. We worked with 4 different subs in different fields of construction on this project and the most difficult part was to be able to communicate effectively with the subs as they didn’t have the necessary software to interact with us. We were able to find work arounds which added a little bit of extra work for us but allowed us to collaborate with our clients. Since then Dassault Systemes has worked on a new software platform called 3DExperience which has facilitated the interaction between different softwares.

ABOUT

Mecanica Solutions Expertize

Mecanica Solutions has been an industry leader in the Automotive and Aerospace industries for the last 35 years and we want to bring this expertise to the AEC world. The ability to model and visualise what the project looks like is something that most software and companies can do. We are proposing going well beyond this and provide seamless collaboration along with the ability to virtually construct your project thus allowing pre-fabrication validation and on-site construction coordination. This combination will lead to reduced material waste and cost, accelerated component design, and increased accuracy to eliminate pre-fabrication mistakes and on-site conflicts.
