1 - PELL Frischman Structural Engineers
A - BIM Modelling & Coordination - Residential+Commercial+Retail - Live Project
First Assignment, Revit Structural modelling of an on-going project. Helped Architect´s design effort
providing structural insight to achieve spatial coordination. Incoming DWGs were in 2D/3D mixed
format, possibly exported from Microstation, putting in place a challenging process to adapt and
overlay each CAD file into Revit.
Coordinating changes to BIM with other Consultants & CAD Managers, understanding the project’s
timeline, end targets and goals, I enabled the Structural Engineering team to developed excellent
relations with Architects, Design Manager & Main Contractor.
Daily Management of the Building Model and issue of weekly updates to drawings¨For
Construction¨. Creation of specific content for the project (object, tagging & marker families)
complying with Company´s Standards. Coordinate the project BIM output to comply with the BIM
Execution Plan (BEP).
Assisting on meetings with architects to coordinate final Spatial Coordination, Structural & Drainage
setting out. DWFx & Navisworks file export to the desired LOD required at specific milestones.
B - Top-Down Construction Sequence - Residential Grosvenor Crescent - London
Create Infographics to explain Top-Down basement construction method.
Self-ideated Assignment. I was part of a conversation relating a project running through the office,
a construction sequence was needed to be presented on a contentious process, urgently. I offered
my help to do it.
4D Construction Sequence: Show the development of the basement to be excavated and built in
phases. A sequence of 3D views was to represent the basement construction at every distinct
phase, allowing simultaneous construction of superstructure.
The model was built in a way that was not ideal for a 4D construction sequence, some elements had
to be broken into separate instances (divided by levels) and assign them different phases. Create
new elements to be included in the sequence and be assigned to Phases in the correct order.
C - DESIGN & Feasibility Study – Footbridges - Old Oak Common Area – West London
A feasibility study for the construction of Footbridges/Walkways to communicate 4 platforms of HS2
Old Oak Common Station to East Acton and Wormwood Scrubs area.
Assisted Engineers in the design of 3 Footbridges according to Stage 2 of the RIBA Plan of Work.
As this project was yet to be defined on its scope and timeframes, it was challenging to compile
valid information to start with. Multiple parties involved each releasing partial, sometimes conflicting
information. Engineer design method was assisted by BIM practices, actively researching for
information to generate a complete model, suitable for QTO.
Coordination of several format files (DGN,SKP,DWG) and native Revit Model Geometry. Testing
different modelling techniques to manage large 3D survey files.
Setting up & managing the
Workset structure to best practices. Setting up and using Shared Coordinates to insert different
models into a common Revit environment.
Elaboration of workflows to import points & geometry from different CAD platforms generating a
topographical surface in Revit.
Provided accurate and timely information in the form of Quantity
Take-off Schedules.
D - Blue Abyss pool – Earthworks Cut & Fill Schedule
Creation of Revit SITE Model according to Survey Points & Coordinates.
The challenge was to compile valid information to start with, as survey information came on a 3D
DWG file, containing +20 layers of both updated and outdated topographical information.
Earthworks cut & fill study was needed to validate conceptual sketches by architects. Developing
phasing & modelling techniques/workflows to effectively extract correct earthwork QTO.
Quantifying earthworks volumes and coordinating design to existing infrastructure in the surrounding
Provided accurate information to project engineers, facilitating design decisions. In this case, how
many parking spaces could by developed using the excavated earth volume, on a sloped plot of
Use of Shared Coordinates to insert different models into a common Revit environment. Setting up
the Workset structure to maintain model performance.
