Project Description:

The awarded project involved the construction of a 330-ton chute support framing system for a mine expansion. This system featured robust connections and multiple chutes, meticulously designed to facilitate efficient operations within the industrial environment. A standout feature of the project was the cantilevered section of the framework, ingeniously crafted to create a visually appealing walkway encircling the surge bin. This achievement was made possible through the strategic placement of skewed supports, enhancing both functionality and aesthetics.

Utilization of SDS2:

The utilization of SDS2 software played a pivotal role in the success of the project. SDS2 automated a significant portion of the shear connections, expediting the design process and ensuring accuracy in structural detailing. Additionally, SDS2 tools for plate work, stair and handrail items, and reference drawings were seamlessly integrated into the project workflow, facilitating the delivery of this functional and visually appealing industrial structure efficiently and accurately.
