Its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and strong design backend make them a premier building solutions company. Their focus is on providing their Clients with the most optimized solution for their requirement.
Strusoft India and Illuminati Building Solutions (IBSPL) mutually decided to engage in a pilot project showcase differences in factory operations and effective utilization of production capacity on the live project.
A low-cost housing residential project SILVERLEAF J wing was chosen for the pilot project. The building is of total 40 units in G+5 storied structure, having a total Built up area of 22500 sqft and located at Ghanepada village in Thane. The major challenge with this project was that it was architecturally designed as cast in situ RCC frame structure along with non-load bearing block walls so it had many projections like cupboards, lofts, etc. which was a bit challenging from the precast point of view, however, IMPACT helped in seamless production in various aspects.
Designing, detailing and shop drawings for this project was carried out completely by StruSoft India’s support team. Engineering and model data were used in the earlier stages of the project to take full advantage of early procurement and optimized use of the material. Rapidly producing shop drawings and managing the project timeline were both accomplished using IMPACT software, which proved to be highly productive.
Automatic generation of shop drawings is the best feature of IMPACT for precast consultants, compared to traditional manual CAD drawings save 25% of resource time and no manual errors were possible due to automated features. MEP consultant provided data in a 2D format which made our support team put extra efforts to implement them in 3D with IMPACT. Two modelers worked on the same Cloud server in real time, using the software in multi-user-mode. Still, we were able to save time on drawings and we estimate a cost reduction of approximately 30% by using and implementing IMPACT BIM in this project.
“After implementing IMPACT in detailing, I could realize a drastic reduction in detailing errors. Moreover, IMPACT has helped us in improving the confidence level of detailers. I would estimate that using IMPACT in the EWS project increased our productivity by more than 30%” says Paras Desai, Director Illuminati Building Solutions.
