Gehry Technologies (GT) Digital Project

"Green building" design trend... increasing energy and material costs... intense pressure on delivery and price. Can your buildings and processes sustain the test of time and more stringent regulatory standards? GT Digital Project can help you deliver your buildings better, faster and cheaper.

Digital Project for Creating Innovative Structures

Digital Project

GT Digital Project is a suite of powerful 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) applications created by Gehry Technologies using Dassault Systèmes (DS)' CATIA V5 as a core modeling engine. GT Digital Project features design, engineering, and project management in a comprehensive 3D environment specifically tailored for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry. Since its inception in 2004, GT Digital Project has been used for some of the worlds's emblematic structures, from commercial and institutional building projects to large scalre infrastructure works. Gehry Technologies has successfully used GT Digital Project to address challenging design and project management issues on such landmark projects as the World Trade Center site, Beijing National Olympic Stadium "The Bird's Nest", the Lincoln Center redevelopment, and the Burj Kalifa Tower: the world's tallest building, to name a few.

Powerful 3D BIM Tools with GT Digital Project

GT Digital Project is a powerful 3D BIM tool, handling projects of any size and shape. Feature-based modeling technology is an integral part of the design process and all Digital Project operations. Geometry is built using persistent relationships that can be updated to address project changes, drive geometry with flexible parameters and dimensions. These relationships are used to create alternative design iterations. GT Digital Project can be used for projects of any size and any shape. 

Coordination with GT Digital Project

GT Digital Project can integrate 3D models from different sources (Architect, Structural Engineer, MEP Engineer) and perform automated clash and clearance detection to allow spatial conflicts between systems to be automatically detected and reported. In addition, GT Digital Project provides powerful tools for integrating and organizing project data into hierarchically sorted project views. Geometry is managed in the 3D environment and in the nested specification tree. Models can be assembled into multiple project organizations that incorporate thrid party formats directly in the modeling environment

Construction Management capacities of GT Digital Project

Project geometry can be linked directly to project schedules developed in Primavera or Microsoft Project to create "4D Models" that integrate design and scheduling information. Project schedules can be reviewed in conjunction with relevant spatial information to detect logistical conflicts or inefficiencies as well as support site management and planning activities. Project modeling and construction simulation can also be used for simulating and demonstrating proper working methods to on-site staff and the resulting geometry can be reused for day to day construction tasks. The 4D project model also removes the ambiguity and potential disagreement about project quantities. Quantities can be derived directly from the master model and linked directly to published or internal cost data. This information can be used for project cost planning and provided as the basis for subcontract bidding.
