DowCo Consultants, LTD has chosen to use Qnect's Tekla software extension to improve the quality of the steel connections it designs while reducing costs for its customers.
We're excited to announce this agreement with Exact Detailing! The content in this blog is from the joint press release and contains details of this agreement. If you would like more information, please use Contact Us to find the method that works best for you. We look forward to sharing Qnect with you.
“If I only knew then what I know now.” How often do you wish you could peer into the future just a bit? With Qnect, you kinda can. The speed and accuracy of Qnect means that you can test a number of different connections extremely quickly. This is like looking into the future because you can make revisions, decisions that previous to Qnect would take days if not weeks to make.
The Fabricator magazine interviewed Qnect's Henry Lederman for this interesting and insightful article.
The extensive use of Qnect's patented, iterative process for optimizing all of the engineering variables makes Qnect's vertical bracing, as well as the rest of Qnect's connection library, extremely efficient.
This release expands Qnect’s connection optimization breadth and provides additional time and money savings to steel detailers, fabricators and structural engineers.
Qnect, with world-class engineers at WSP and world-class steel fabricators at Banker Steel, helps make 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka “The Spiral,” one of the most efficiently designed towers in the world.
"We’re able to make connection revisions quickly and with confidence using Qnect, which would have taken us weeks longer without them.”
~ Chuck Hongell, VP at WSP
Qnect, LLC, the leader in smart, optimized connections, today introduced vertical bracing as the latest addition to their connection library. Vertical bracing completes Qnect’s full spectrum of optimized connections from gravity connections to moment connections and the lateral bracing system.
What makes Qnect’s vertical bracing so efficient is the extensive use of their patented, iterative process for optimizing all of the engineering variables.
Why an e-book? The people that attended our recent webinar live as well as those that watched the recorded version made several comments that could be summed up as “This is valuable information. How can I share it with my team?” Several mentioned that their co-workers, even their subs, would not watch a video but would read an overview or summary.
Steel just got smarter and attendees at NASCC 2019 witnessed it first hand at the Qnect booth and in the sessions. Once again we can say, “Qnect had a successful week at NASCC: The Steel Conference.”
We also arranged a panel of 4 top engineering firms who used Qnect on 4 high profile projects: KPFF on Seatac Airport, WSP on a 60 story tower at Hudson Yards, Meyer Borgman and Johnson on Vassar Hospital and Walter P. Moore on Sparkman Wharf.
Scott Melnick, Editor of Modern Steel Connection (MSC), had some great observations about Qnect in the December issue. “The Qnect connection software promises substantial cost savings when used to optimize connection design. But the real advantage is the time it slashes from a project. What might take a fabricator and detailer weeks to develop can now be completed in hours.”
We share more in the recent Blog Post as well as other highlights from 2018. Take 3 minutes to read our Year in Review.
Qnect has added to its portfolio of connections new capabilities to optimize top and bottom plate moment connections, as well as deck support steel in 3D models. “The latest release from Qnect adds to its functionality, offering more types of connections it can calculate and model,” says Erleen Hatfield, a customer and managing partner of Hatfield Group
[September 2018] Qnect, the steel industry's leading connection design
The intersection of innovation and construction sometimes seems like an awkward marriage; however, when I attended Engineering News-Record’s ENR FutureTech conference in San Francisco I walked away with inspiration and excitement for all the places where the industry is making that marriage work.
