Sir Robert McAlpine continue to experience the many advantages of using ANSYS and CivilFEM. The software allows them to validate designs, improve safety both in temporary works during construction and permanent works, eradicate the need to revise work, optimise pre-fabrication and ensure the efficiency of maintenance and plant replacement strategies and constructability studies. These benefits have come to the fore in recent high-profile projects, such as the Bloomberg, Cheyne Terrace, Buckingham Gate, Buckinghamshire Energy from Waste, Cabot Circus in Bristol, the M74 Completion in Glasgow and the Olympic Stadium, Offshore Wind Turbine Structures in North Sea, and new Generation Nuclear Power Stations.
Overall, the many ongoing benefits include:
• Reduced project risk
• Improved safety and quality
• Reduced waste and increased prefabrication
• Cost savings
• Improved planning and design
Our company continues to benefit from the ANSYS and CivilFEM software supplied to us by Wilde Analysis, especially in recent high-profile projects such as Severnside and Bucks Energy from Waste Projects and New Generation Nuclear Power Stations. It has brought many advantages, not least reduced project risk, cost savings and improved safety and quality. Wilde underpins their software supply with excellent technical support and this enables us to develop our in-house knowledge and to get the most out of our software.
