Project Description

Process optimization through 4D simulations

Teglholm Brygge, 179 new apartments units in Copenhagen South Harbor, is being built by Pihl & Søn. CN3 was hired to provide detailed visualizations in the tender phase, and thereby optimize the construction and assembly method through an iterative process.

Through this process we first identified key focus areas with potential for significant productivity gains. The 52 bay windows, attached to a curved brick façade, constituted one such area. I close collaboration with the contractor and design team, CN3 developed a design, that ensured that mounting of the facade can be done upon completion full of the brick work, in turn allowing the brick work to be done from a working platform in a single uninterrupted process. This saves the contractor significant time, resources and coordination. In addition, this assembly method enables the bay window brackets to function as a frame for the brickwork, minimizing potential errors in the brick laying.
