SDS2 in action

The hall will support operations of a brand new, state-of-the-art coated recycle board machine. The North side of the structure consists of a main machine runway including crane columns, crane girders, roof trusses, and an operating floor along a poured-in-place concrete machine track. The South consists of an operating floor, equipment floor, and stick-built roof. As this project is a design/ build, several components of SDS2 were used to track changes, material ordering status, and approval/ fabrication dates. Tools such as model notes and member category status were used to provide key information to the project team. As the standard beam-to-column and beam-to-beam connections were provided from the EOR, Merrill Steel was able to quickly develop user-defined connections to cover all framing conditions and maximize modeling efficiency.
