Precast Concrete Crane Planning

Precast Concrete Crane Planning in IMPACT is extremely simple. The software module helps you plan your crane capacity types and lifts for all your precast concrete elements.

On the site of a precast concrete project, the size and capacities of cranes often play a large role in the erection of elements. Using the IMPACT Project Manager, handling the positioning of cranes is made easy. You simply create definitions for your cranes in terms of reach and capacities, pick a crane for your project and select where to place it.

You plan in full 3D with the IMPACT Project Manager, which is very simple to use and you don’t require any 3D modelling skills or prior knowledge of modelling software.

Advanced 3D Precast Concrete Crane Planning Features

The crane planning in IMPACT also introduces advanced features such as limiting crane lifting angles, limiting specific cranes to certain buildings, floors, or phases in larger construction projects. You can add as many cranes as needed to any project.

You can also setup an erection sequence on all your precast elements with unique Erection IDs through date dependencies and also factor in different lifting times for different types of precast elements. You can then simulate the erection sequence in the IMPACT Project Manager.

The crane is shown in a simplified model as a box, to facilitate the focus of the capacity of the crane itself and the elements it needs to lift. If you want to add a 3D model of the crane, this is also possible by adding in a 3D model through IMPACT Design, or you can import a crane from another 3D modelling tool such as Revit or Tekla® Structures.
