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