Benefits / Challenges:
PGT had received two sets of drawings in PDF format - one from year 2000 and the other from year 2006. Additionally, some red line markups were made on the PDFs to capture the existing conditions. Because of these different sets of documents, it was challenging to understand the old documents and match with the Existing Structure to create an accurate Revit model.
Solution provided by PGT:
To resolve the conflict and match the Revit model with the Existing structure we referred Google Map street 3D view images and created multiple RFIs to get information from the client and surveyor.
"The team works hard and is willing to put in extra effort to hid deadlines, even when they are given at short notice. They seem to have a great understanding of the job requirements and can therefore produce effective modeling, drawings, RFI, etc. It is a real pleasure to work with the Pangulf Team! "

"Working with Pan Gulf have been good so far, they are very responsible and very proactive. Obviously at this point of the Job, I am just able to provide feedback on detailing and fabrication stage. Once the erection process starts, I can have a better idea on how good and clear the drawings are for our erection crew"

"It will take time to get the quality of drawings to Excellent – part of the reason is that our Revit models have a very unique workflow and have to be modelled very specifically to support our AR/VR and Estimating/QTO requirements. "
