Building Information Modeling (BIM) and green building design are two trends in the A/E/C industry that show no signs of slowing down. Both are becoming more and more common in the work that we do as structural engineers, and we think it’s important to understand that they are mutually beneficial components of the design process. They are both important concepts that can reinforce and support each other. That’s why we’ve created a Top Five list of ways that BIM and green building design go hand in hand.
Kris Swanson has been working a lot with the new Diversakore framing system, and we asked him to explain it a little more in depth. Thanks to him, we were able to gather some more information about the framing system and explain how DCI’s experience with it is valuable for certain projects.
What is the Diversakore system?
It's an alternate composite steel and concrete framing system utilizing conventional reinforced concrete encased in custom shaped steel plate shell, which acts both as steel reinforcing and a stay-in-place concrete form.
