Connecting for Optimization by Jef Sharp in MSC

By Pearl Burgoff on Mar 1, 2022 4:55:04 PM

"LAST MONTH, I wrote about how early connected models can help steel fabricators. This month, let’s expand the discussion to include the myriad ways that early connected models help the steel industry as a whole.

At Qnect, we call early connected model delivery projects “ISD” for integrated steel delivery. There are many advantages to integrating the connection engineering, detailing, and optimization of the model before the bidding process begins (which I’ll explore in a second). Using these benefits makes steel less expensive and faster than other building materials—and also more sustainable."

Qnect Receives High Praise in Industry-Leading Magazine

By Pearl Burgoff on Sep 16, 2021 5:01:31 PM

An article in Engineering News-Record came out earlier this summer praising Qnect's cloud-based steel connection optimization software for the cost savings and efficiency it provides those who use it. The article highlights the 1.3-million-sq-ft Fenway Center project which is currently underway and expected to finish in 2025.

Well known structural engineering service provider, LeMessurier Consultants, contracted Qnect to connect the model for the project. 

“[By using Qnect] we have been able to cycle through numerous options to produce much more efficient connections,” says Craig Blanchet, a vice president at LeMessurier. “It has given us more confidence in the constructibility of the project, which helps mitigate risk.”
