5 CRESCENT DRIVE
TRIMBLE ROBOTIC TOTAL STATION
The staircase at Five Crescent Drive is an excellent example of advanced BIM collaboration and parametric modeling. The original BIM model of the wood cladding, was engineered before the steel substructure was completely installed. This enabled the mock-up and fabrication to begin much earlier because the parametric model could simply be undated with accurate field dimensions taken from the Trimble RTS Robotic Total Station once the steel was finished. Due to the accuracy of the Trimble Total Station, between 70 and 80 unique modules could be prefabricated off-site and simply delivered when the substructure was ready for installation. This kind of engineering and fabrication are only possible with the help of BIM parametric modeling digital input methods like the Trimble Total Station Laser. These methods allow complex geometries to be simulated and fabricated off-site with an extremely high level of precision, speed and safety.
