Design & Modelling
The Lafarge Precast Edmonton design team works hand in hand with our engineering team to develop drawings and layouts for all of our projects and proposals. Our design team uses the PC-3D BIM Modeling System when designing products, project or structures. The advantage of using the BIM system is it gives our designers the ability to show a full 3D model of the completed structure including every angle, level, component and connection detail all of which can be specifically highlighted, rotated or expanded upon. Examples of some of the precast projects that we have designed using this system on are shown below:
