Abstract

This project proposes two alternative designs of the structural frame of the Gateway Park Phase II using a cast-in-place concrete sway frame and a redesign of the existing steel building to incorporate lateral bracing. The work flow and design process incorporated modern Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools, for which the logistics of interoperability were explored and documented. The programs utilized were Scia Engineer, Revit Structures, Revit Architecture, and Robot.
