FasterFix is the fastest solution for the reinforcement of concrete elements in structures.
Conventional on-site steel fixing for in-situ concrete elements are substituted for innovative modules of prefabricated offsite reinforcement with FasterFix.
FasterFix solutions by Midland Steel is delivered under the BIM Level 2 certification. Midland Steel is certified by BSI for the following scope:
Organization and digitization of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling — Information management using building information modelling: Concepts and principles.
Organization and digitization of information about buildings and civil engineering works, including building information modelling — Information management using building information modelling: Delivery phase of the assets.
Collaborative production of information – Fulfilling employer’s information exchange requirements using COBie.
BIM based process in FasterFix solutions increase efficiency in the design and delivery of reinforced concrete elements through:
spatial coordination within the model allows for clash avoidance, clash detection.
FasterFix modules are engineered with the unique constraints of your project ensuring optimisation of transport, site access, lifting limitations as well as scheduling limitations driven by environmental factors. Modular nature of FasterFix solutions ensure optimum value within constraints. Learn more about how tides and associated time constraints can be optimized with FasterFix from our Dublin Port Anchor project.
One central location to store all data associated with the project.
FasterFix solutions offer reinforcement detailing in line with the Engineer’s Design Intent (DI) that is optimized following a DfMA design approach.
FasterFix modules are designed as assemblies that can be configured as drop-in elements. The final configuration can then be implemented based on project constraints and client preference.
FasterFix solutions leverage BIM solutions and offer a common data environment enabling the seamless flow of information amongst project stakeholders.
FasterFix solutions are detailed with Tekla Structures and offered for collaboration through the Trimble Connect solutions with full IFC support for exchange of information with other software solutions.
