Design It Mill Tackles Tough Design Challenges for TD Place at Landsdowne Park using SOLIDWORKS solutions

At SOLIDWORKS we often hear from customers who are happy to share how the software helped them complete their projects. Design {it} Mill Inc., (DIM), is no exception. The design studio specializes in architectural façade/roof systems for new construction. They draw on the talents of creative, cross-disciplinary professionals with backgrounds in architecture and mechanical engineering to develop highly customized façade, building envelope, fabrication, and specialty curtain wall detailing solutions.

DIM turned to SOLIDWORKS for 3D solid modeling and product data management (PDM) solutions to tackle the challenges associated with transforming advanced architectural concepts into actual structures. According to Partner Mark Cichy, “Everything we do is unique and often the first of its kind. From the beginning, we knew that we needed a capable 3D platform that could support the modeling of surfaces and solids, analysis of components and structural supports, and management of design data and workflows.”

One of those unique projects was TD Place at Lansdowne Park, a historic sports, exhibition and entertainment facility in Ottawa’s urban center. After the opening day at the stadium, they sent us the following link to the photos. While poking around on the site, I also found a really cool link to a blog post on “Model vs. Reality” comparing some of the three dimensional images from SOLIDWORKS with a number of site photos. Great to see that they were very similar!
