Achieving growth in an incredibly competitive industry like construction is no easy feat, but it’s something that KG Constructions, one of the biggest facade contractors in Northern Europe, is looking to achieve.
The company has to meet the ever-growing demands of its customers. “Every project we embark on is unique,” said Andrius Nikolajevas, KG Constructions’ head of design. “Architecture needs to align with stringent construction standards and fulfill strict project requirements too. Expectations are rising – our clients are now demanding bespoke glazing, specialist leaned facades and multiple cladding facade systems.”KG Constructions adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud. In order to fully understand the functionality of the technology, the company decided to use it to completely design its new factory in Vilnius, Lithuania.
This new factory will be built on a six-hectare plot, and will double the company’s current production capacity. A modern, first class, three-story office building with a total area of 2,620 square meters will be constructed alongside it.
This project was a huge test for the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. “We used the platform to help us design, build and manufacture the entirety of the new fabrication plant,” said Julius Zykus, the company’s design team lead. “We implemented all key processes from the platform, using 3D modeling to create the BIM and visualize the factory as a whole. We were able to automatically create a bill of materials (BOM), which previously we’d have done manually. This meant there was no chance of errors – which is fantastic.”
