Folia & BIM – Design thru Fabrication

In this In-Practice session Aaron Jobson of Quattrocchi Kwok Architects will discuss Folia, a pre-engineered and pre-fabricated two story classroom building that can cut project delivery time in half while also reducing cost by 15% or more, all with no compromise in building quality. They achieved these results through an intense collaboration that treated design and construction as one process. Critical to the successful development of Folia was an integrated, high definition BIM workflow. Throughout the multi-stage design process QKA’s ArchiCAD Model was linked with GPLA’s Tekla Structural model and Blach’s Tekla fabrication model. There was also further integration through IFC with design and fabrication models from Mechanical Engineers and sub-contractors. The presentation will review the unique design and construction features of Folia as well as its development. We will also discuss how the team is continuing to use ArchiCAD and BIM to adapt the pre-engineered solution to new school projects. .
