Title: Computer Modeling Eases Layout, Formwork, Construction at L.A. Cathedral
Author(s): Jeffrey Stenfors
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 42-47
Abstract:Los Angeles cathedral and campanile structures defy conventional approaches to construction drawing. The project’s deceptive and unique ensemble has very few 90-degree angles along with angle sizes that rarely repeat. There could be little room for error since the tall, exposed concrete walls could not be altered once placed. Construction documents required resolution of dimensional issues prior to forming, and the integration of information from engineering consultants. SPF:a was hired to develop precise shop drawings where technical expertise, innovative methods at documentation, and special three-dimensional (3-D) computer modeling skills are required.
