CIMA+ performed the engineering of major mechanical and piping components as part of the building design, which had to meet all environmental standards and Code requirements while minimizing the overall impact on the client’s budget.
The layout of the equipment was problematic due to limited floor space. CIMA+’s 3D layouts facilitated the construction and maintenance of equipment, while securing appropriate floor space for operators. 3D models were also used to secure adequate access and maintenance space in the vicinity of every equipment.
Thanks to our expertise in computer-aided design (CAD), design conflicts between disciplines working simultaneously were quickly verified (e.g., placeholders), approved (e.g., normal contacts) or resolved (by the relevant discipline).
2D drawings delivered by suppliers were quickly converted to 3D using the Inventor software. CIMA+ used this same software to integrate the design of equipment (pumps, ventilation units, dust collectors, etc.).
