With the award of the contract, we check the contractual framework conditions as the basis for the implementation. If necessary, we adapt the technical solutions to any requirements that have changed – always with the goals of our client in mind.
If Priedemann takes over the shop drawings or the workshop planning for the contractor of a facade project, we first check the existing planning approval for completeness and feasibility. In discussion with the developer and his planning team, we coordinate all planning-relevant parameters and adapt them, if necessary, to the equipment of the contractor – our client.
In addition to careful planning, the quality of the products and materials used is decisive for how well a facade performs and how long it lasts. Our knowledge is guaranteed and supported by our experience and application-oriented research in the Facade Lab. The exact definition of the materials to be used, their quality criteria and how they should be processed is part of our range of services.
Priedemann supplies all planning documents for the construction of the planned facades. We familiarize ourselves with the potential of the respective production site and capacities and monitor the entire manufacturing process right through to the supply of materials on the construction site. The CAD and CAM data generated by us makes our clients ready for industry 4.0: This is how we bring the design directly to the machine!
The quality assured during manufacture and production is to be maintained continuously on the construction site. To do this, we coordinate the correct sequence for an efficient assembly process. Priedemann thinks through all steps and interfaces, creates clear installation and assembly instructions and pays attention to interfaces with other trades.
We create, analyze and optimize digital 3D models as a basis for the production of the actual facade later. We analyze facade representations created as nodes or surface models and generate realistic 3-dimensional facade details from them. Or we optimize 3D models that show any unrealistic differentiation of individual elements in order to reconcile production costs with architectural requirements.
We know that planning is a living process accompanied by change. Parametric data models allow us to react flexibly to changing conditions or situations. Parametric planning can be an integral part of a BIM process or an independent part of planning and implementation. Using different 3D software, we design individual facade components, elements or entire assemblies and use them to generate CIM (computer integrated manufacturing) and DFM (design for manufacture) compatible data sets.
These data sets can be transferred to CNC data (Computer Numeric Control) for production. Parametric planning is an efficient and reliable tool for consistent planning and accuracy, especially for complex facade geometries – from design to manufacture and installation. Our parametric data models provide us with a reliable basis for tendering, awarding and implementation.
