The AVEVA Bocad Advantage How Iemants owes its success to AVEVA Bocad Iemants N. V. is an international steel construction company from Belgium, with a long history of impressive projects as diverse as bioethanol plants, topsides for tension-leg platforms (TLPs), wind farm jackets and substations, as well as a host of architectural projects that include the Ferrari theme park in Abu Dhabi, the Tour D2 skyscraper in Paris, and a new terminal for Rotterdam's central station, for which they won the national steel award at the Staalbouw Dag, a steel construction fair in the Netherlands. We spoke to Patrick Maes, Technical Director at Iemants, to understand how the company has used AVEVA Bocad™ to deliver such varied and sophisticated projects. To meet the requirements of a wide range of clients, Iemants uses both AVEVA Bocad and a competitor's software. The choice depends not only on a client's preference but on the nature of the project. One deciding factor for using AVEVA Bocad on a project is its ability to automatically generate large parts of the design, even on very complex projects. 'For example, a long time ago we completed the 300-metre Aspire Tower in Qatar,' Patrick explained. 'The key advantage AVEVA Bocad brought on this project and others like it was that, once one floor was designed, AVEVA Bocad could automatically generate all the others, which was a huge time saving.' Automated design AVEVA Bocad enables a lot of key project information to be automatically generated. It provides all required project information (piece numbering, piece-to-piece information, location marks, and weld information) to gain full control of the project to shorten lead times and eliminate errors in the fabrication and construction processes.
