See two case studies below where StructureMode has made use of IDEA StatiCa:
Morley College, London
An art college within central London, plans to expand and to enable the building works necessary to the expansion they need additional temporary teaching spaces. The temporary classrooms are prefabricated units with proprietary connection and workshop tolerances. These units are to be mounted on a steel frame designed by StructureMode which in turn is supported by the ground screws.
Queen's Gate, London
StructureMode made use of IDEA StatiCa while carrying out a significant refurbishment and alteration to a period property on Queen’s Gate, central London. “This project involved the creation of many large openings in existing load-bearing walls of our client’s apartment, that supported six storeys of solid masonry and timber floors above.”
