EZY Jamb now in BIM Autodesk Revit to integrate easily into project designs

As BIM (Building Information Modelling) continues to change to the way we design and construct new buildings, EZCONCEPT is pleased to announce the arrival of comprehensive BIM files for EZYJamb and EZYPelmet products in the popular Autodesk Revit format.

After careful collaboration with architects, builders and BIM specialists, EZCONCEPT has ‘test driven’ the new BIM files on several recent projects and been given the thumbs up by all stakeholders involved. BIM is a powerful 3D CAD process that is used to create, plan and document buildings and constructions in the modern digital age in which we live, with many architectural studios requesting high-quality, data-rich BIM families for popular products in order to avoid costly mistakes on site. 

EZCONCEPT BIM objects feature parametric design settings which easily integrate EZYJamb into any wall and EZYPelmet into any ceiling and gives you the flexibility to simply modify the object to create project specific drawing details. EZCONCEPT’s BIM files are available for free download from Studco’s website www.ezconcept.com.au. EZCONCEPT BIM includes 3D and 2D representations of each object together with embedded product data to support the specification and provide a ‘life-of-building’ audit trail.

At this stage, only EZYJamb Classic Adjust (EZC) flush finish door jambs with hirline hinge or concealed hinges are available in Revit files. More EZYJamb profiles coming soon. Custom BIM objects and details are available on request from the in-house BIM experts at EZCONCEPT.

EZCONCEPT has also taken the opportunity to refresh the many popular 2D and 3D CAD files for EZYJamb and EZYPelmet, which are also available for free download.

UTS delivers world-leading campus and facilities

Located at one of Sydney’s busiest intersections on Broadway, the new building has transformed the local precinct - providing a new dramatic gateway to the UTS City Campus and downtown Sydney.

 

University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) unveiled its new Engineering and Information Technology Building. The single largest facility to be constructed under UTS’s $1 billion City Campus Master Plan.

 

Rising 13 storeys above the ground, the new building aims to bring new spaces to life to support both informal and formal learning experiences, providing a vibrant environment where students and staff collaborate and engage.

Fast Stud supplied Studco products to contractor Austem Interiors. Studco products used included Stud and Track, Flexi Track and Concealed Ceiling Systems.

 

The decision to engage Studco and Fast Stud for this project was due to the level of service provided and being able to give a quick solution to a challenging application. The main wall in the foyer entrance was curved on a multiple axis. Studco’s Engineering team created a specification that was quite intricate. Studco in-conjunction with Fast Stud collaborated extensively to provide Austem Interiors with a design that suited all parties including the architect, builder and contractor.

Margaret Court Arena serves up a challenge

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Studco’s involvement in the major redevelopment of the Margaret Court Arena helps give the Australian Open its third retractable roof tennis court at the Melbourne Park complex.

Studco Building System Wall and Ceiling Installation

STUDCO BUILDING
As part of the $700 million redevelopment of the Melbourne and Olympic Parks events precinct, the Margaret Court Arena has undergone a significant transformation including the erection of a 9 metre high acoustic perimeter wall and the installation of the fastest operable roof in the world which will allow the stadium to operate in all weather environments.

 

The project presented some of the most complex challenges ever seen by Studco: extreme roof deflection in two directions, rigorous acoustic performance, enormous free-spanning wall heights intersecting with a multi-faceted roof structure, and punishing wind pressures. To complicate matters further, the 2014 Australian Open was held at the site halfway through the two year build program.

 

Overcoming these formidable obstacles was achieved using a collaborative approach under the direction of builder Lend Lease and the use of innovative technologies including Studco’s real-time 3D CAD modelling and computer-based acoustic simulations. Routine weekly inspections then followed up to ensure correct installation and design compliance.

 

Thousands of custom-rolled 150mm steel studs were used in a chase wall configuration in conjunction with

Resilmount M24R chase wall resilient brackets to create the main wall structure around the stadium. The wall was then lined with USG Boral Fibrerock and Multistop lining boards along with a variety of different feature panelling components.

This design achieved significant cost savings from the original design, made on-site handling of materials easier and improved overall build efficiencies. It also removed the need for many heavy, fabricated structural steel sections using innovative combinations of Studco’s lightweight steel sections.

 

Studco’s involvement in the Margaret Court Arena project continues the long term association Studco has with Major Projects Victoria including the Melbourne Markets in Epping, Hamer Hall Redevelopment, AgriBio Centre at Latrobe University, the Melbourne Recital Centre and The Australian Synchrotron.
