Building Type: Commercial

Location: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Inputs: Fabrication drawings

Deliverables: Procurement BIM

Software: AutoCAD – 2015

Services: Curtain wall, Doors, Guardrail, Louver


This construction project involves 31,150 sq. ft. of Aluminium composite panel cladding, 51,100 sq. ft. of curtain wall (curved, slanting and straight type. including external features with formed cover, Doors, louvers, supporting steel structure, parapet cladding).

Our scope of work

Advenser’s scope of services in the project consisted of remarks modification of previous drawings, preparation of new drawings, fabrication drawings, material calculations, curtain wall structural calculations and necessary 3D models as per the Architectural and building structural drawing. The design drawings for all trades were delivered as both cad and pdf. The queries/assumptions were prepared as issues or RFIs in a predefined template and submitted for the client approval. The Issues were tracked using Issue tracker and a lead time was specified within which the RFI has to be responded satisfactorily. Drafting of all elements have done using software Autocad 2014 and 2015. AutoCAD 2014 3D software is used for modeling some part of the curtain wall.

Business Model Adopted
