Recent Advancement in our Technical capabilities

Touraj Eimani / Blog, Uncategorized / / 0 Comments

NIC Consultants is excited to announce the addition of a new, cutting-edge application to our analytical and drafting toolbox.

In line with our continued efforts toward advancing our technical capabilities, NIC Consultants has employed Building Information Matrix (BIM) techniques using Autodesk Revit. Utilizing 3-dimensional models has enabled our team of engineers and drafters to visualize and accurately assemble various structural systems together for our projects. Employing BIM allows us to determine the optimal solutions and guarantee our success in developing fully coordinated and cost-effective methods that can benefit our Clients.

BIM/Revit models offer unlimited and advanced capabilities which allow the Architect and Developers to preview the building system as it will be assembled in the field. These 3D models can retrieve any desirable plans, and elevations, and make unlimited section cuts through the structural system. Construction professionals will be able to obtain a set of selected info on various structural members, such as foundation, concrete/rebars, anchor bolts, different framing system, etc., and share those with their sub-contractors for interactive development of their shop drawings.      BIM models provide tremendous flexibility and technical features that can serve the design/construction team towards the successful completion of the project and benefit the Owner/Developer.

Grand Opening

Touraj Eimani / Blog, Uncategorized / / 0 Comments

Halcyon House is inching closer to its completion ! Grand Opening is scheduled for April 2022!

This vibrant mid-rise building complex introduces about 400 residential units to the world-class shopping and entertainment venue. The complex consists of two separate 4-story residential towers supported by three-level substructures. The towers blend ground-level modern retail spaces with a public courtyard and an overlooking pedestrian bridge to form an extreme environment. Roughly 30 duplex townhouses in the residential complex serve to provide spaciousness and a sense of luxury for the resident. Halcyon House offers a variety of contemporary retail spaces and other amenities, including rolling hills, outdoor decks, two pools and spas, fitness centers, lounges, and pet-friendly enclosures.

The residential towers are built out of light-frame wood structures (Type-VA) and steel special moment-resisting frames (Type-IA). The substructure, categorized as a Type-IA construction, is comprised of post-tension flat slabs supported by CIP reinforced concrete walls and columns.  Cast-in-drilled-hole piles support the bridge structure while the mat foundation carries the weight of the towers with the help of a soil-stabilizing geopier system.

NIC Consultants has developed the project’s structural design to bring KTGY Architecture and Planning’s vision to life in partnership with and under the supervision of LMC. Construction of the concrete sub-structures is being done by Covi.
