Bentley’s Structural Modeler Saved Time and Improved Workflows in Retractable Roof Design
The All England Lawn Tennis Club has hosted the Wimbledon tennis tournament since the inaugural event in 1877. Refurbishing the facilities in between tournaments posed many challenges. One of the most daunting was the project’s tight schedule, which, if not met, would pose major consequences for the design team, main contractor, and supplier fabricators.
Edge Structures used Bentley’s building information modelling (BIM) software, including Bentley’s Structural Modeler, to design the facility improvements for a new retractable roof, which was completed in 2009. Structural Modeler provides seamless integration among design, engineering, analysis, construction, and operations for the entire lifecycle of facilities, along with comprehensive documentation and BIM.
