DemCox Services include:

3D Steel Modelling

DemCox has been utilising dedicated 3D modelling software since its inception. With this software, we create a highly accurate virtual Model of the structure which is data rich with all relevant Information necessary for procurement, fabrication & erection of every steel component in your structure.

We have an in-house, dedicated specialist who uses their technical expertise and knowledge of the program to maximize efficiencies and productivity. Because of this, DemCox can customise our extracted 2d drawing output (Marking Plans, Assembly and Item/Plate drawings), fabrication and procurement reports as well as numerous other custom reports, to meet and often exceed our client’s requirements and expectations.

B.I.M Modelling

Q: What is BIM? A: The process of modelling and communicating the structure of a building in detail to benefit the entire building lifecycle. BIM facilitates the exchange and visualization of building information in digital 3D format between all building disciplines to ensure integrated project delivery (IPD). The acronym BIM stands for building information model or building information management.

DemCox have been BIM modelling since our inception and are constantly striving to keep up with or ahead of the technology.

Structural designers start from raw data and build their prototypes or ‘models’ based on their analysis output.  As more information is gathered, changes are applied to the model.  The advantage of the BIM approach and early engagement of a steel detailer is that modifications to the 3D structural model take place in a finely controlled environment allowing ease and effective management of the entire building model.  With true BIM software, information is shared from design concept to detailing, fabrication and erection.  Start to Finish.BIM Graphic 

We have built many Building Information Models (BIM) from the structural steel perspective. Our ultimate goal however is that after we build the model for the owner, building contractor, engineer etc., we can proceed to prepare the shop detail drawings before the project goes to the fabricator for tender. This process allows the builder to get the very best price from both the fabricators and constructors as they are all quoting from the finished drawings and have access to accurate tonnages and finishes.

More and more clients are seeing the benefits of this approach and we hope it will eventually become the norm for progressive thinking owners and contractors.  DemCox can support and supplement the engineering team to help solve the design and documentation problems before the project goes to the fabricator.

The fundamental nature of our 3D model – is to ensure that project data is current, available and reliable. Innovators who embrace this concept early on have seen significant increases in productivity, providing them with a considerable edge over the ‘exchange of paper’ industry.
