Modulus Chasis Sprint.

Architectural, Structural, MEPF modeling.


Located in the United States, this unique project is designed by Katerra and will eventually be fabricated by Katerra Construction LLC. Utilizing a panelized system for fabrciation, BIM played a major role in rationalizing the components and assemblies of the project.


Our project team of Architectural, Structural, and MEPF modelers created over 350 cut-sheets of the different components and assemblies for the 12-unit building consisting of 3 floors and almost 1,000 square meters of floor area. 


The special application for this project consists of panelized construction, pre-engineered assemblies (combined Architectural, Structural, and MEPF elements) which are produced for a new housing building. These assemblies are designed to be fabricated in a factory-controlled condition.


In general, this project was quite difficult to manage due to a very short turn-around-time requirement from the client as well as many entities who were involved. Additionally, we had little experience with panelized construction, however, it took us a short period to learn how to illustrate the system properly since we utilized the BIM process for a few of fabrication projects ourselves here in Vietnam. 


Overall, it was a challenging project and we learned a lot from this work. After this short learning curve, we aim to be much more effective in the future for all similar projects from our client.
