IndiaCADworks Delivers Eurocode-Complaint 8 to 20 Meter PVC Clad Structure Drawing for UK Garden Equipment Supplier

The Client:

The client is a designer and manufacturer of steel, film-clad and PVC-clad structures in the UK. With a 30-year heritage, the client works with industry leaders and major public sector clients, offering purpose-built structures to suit different applications on agricultural needs.

The Situation:

The client found it challenging to proportionately increase the size of PVC-clad structures, which were intended to be introduced in the European market. The standard, off-the-shelf structures measure 4, 5, or 6 meters in span, but the proposed structures were 8 to 20 meters long.

  • Accurate engineering drawings were required for the new sizes.
  • Drawings must fully comply with specific Eurocodes applicable for this sector.
  • The client had no prior experience in outsourcing engineering drawings.

The Challenges:

The business situation put forth many challenges, some of which were:

  • Retaining the look and feel of the structures in the drawings
  • Maintaining the structures’ strength and design in their new size
  • Identifying the most economical configuration for the new product
  • Understanding the nuances of Eurocodes that must be complied with

The Solution:

IndiaCADworks had proven expertise and experience in handling drawings for global clients. The salient features of our solution included:

  • A team of 4 highly experienced engineers was entrusted with the project, with an alumnus of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) to oversee the project.
  • Internal appraisal on Eurocodes was given to the design team.
  • 3D renderings and 3D walkthrough animations were provided using STAAD.Pro.
  • Structures provided by us promised a minimum design life of 15 years.
  • Compatible CAD files were delivered to open and edit with AutoCAD Mechanical 2011 or Autodesk Inventor Simulation 2011 as required by the client.

The Result:

The solution provided by the IndiaCADworks team led to very positive results.

  • The drawings were done right at the very first time with no need for iterations, resulting in quick turnaround
  • Our economical CAD solution and adherence to delivery enabled the client to save on costs
  • Strict adherence to Eurocodes was demonstrated in our drawings
