MAIN PROJECTS - SUMMARY

Here is a brief summary of the most significant projects, developed by Corax team.

RUNNING PROJECTS

SIAS Module 4 - a project designer & calculation tool to streamline the engineering of innovative constriction elements for thermal insulation, impact sound insulation and reinforcement. The tool optimizes the engineering process, ensuring central data management, reusability of the created solutions, uniformity and traceability of the design process, and greatly reduces the risk of wrong input or arbitrary decisions. It also provides close integration of AutoCAD drawings and sophisticated structural calculations via Dlubal RFEM 2D package. SIAS Module 4 is designed to extend the already developed Modules 1, 2, 3 of the Schöck Information Automation System (SIAS).
Developed for Schöck engineering department (The Netherlands) in partnership with Bisoft, The Netherlands, and deBIMspecialist, The Netherlands.
Technologies used: .NET, MS SQL Server 2005, AutoCAD programming, RF-COM automation of Dlubal RFEM 2D.

RECENT PROJECTS

Our moste recent projects are inspired by and developed around the Building Information Modeling (BIM) concept.

CBK – Corporate BanK (CBK) is a central repository of reusable knowledge inside a construction company. The knowledge is structured according to properties (attributes) of building types, assemblies (building parts), building tasks and resources. It covers the whole life cycle of a building – requirements specification, design, construction, maintenance. Assemblies can be linked to objects in Autodesk’s Architectural Desktop. This way CBK creates an intra-company standard for describing construction projects and stores best practices based on this standard.
Developed for Bouwtaak KennisCentrum, The Netherlands, in partnership with Bisoft, The Netherlands, and HorcsikCAD, Hungary.
Technologies used: .NET, MS SQL Server 2000.

WebCalc – an web-based system for construction project management, working in tight integration with CBK (see above).
Developed for Bouwtaak KennisCentrum, The Netherlands, in partnership with Bisoft, The Netherlands.
Technologies used: ASP.NET, MS SQL Server 2000, XML.

BouwtaakFM – an web-based system for facility management, based on 3D building models (AutoDesk's DWF format). The application provides role-based navigation, data access and filtering, as well as options for secure link to other third-party FM applications (e.g. ServiceBeheer, www.servicebeheer.nl). The desktop BouwtaaKFM Editor allows for advanced content authoring and management.
Developed for Bouwtaak KennisCentrum, The Netherlands, in partnership with Bisoft, The Netherlands, and BouwnD, The Netherlands, and Service Beheer, The Netherlands.
