WA was called in to assist the conversion of the 5-story Eberhard Faber Factory into a residential use by adding a sixth floor and combining it with two additional new 6-story buildings next door. A BIM model including all existing conditions was created for the project and helped identify conflicts, the creation of a structural stability plan & drawings, and in the design of underpinning. The new building structures consist of steel framing with metal decking and concrete floors. Coordination time was dramatically reduced and the project was completed within budget.
