New University Academic Building
This simple project-specific study graphically illustrates the magnitude of a principal constructability challenge presented by a signature architect’s design. A proposed truss is shown to be longer than an entire existing academic building with which the Owner is familiar. This served to demonstrate the scale of the problem. Subsequent imagery demonstrated that Vinci’s client had an idea on how to erect the steel frame. This vignette and the general idea were instrumental in helping Vinci’s client win the project, beating its larger competitors.
