Challenge 1: Fixing the Gusset plate connection:
Fixing the Gusset plate connection: In the structural document, we only had a general detail of the Gusset plate connection which was completely different from the connection that was needed in our model. We had multiple HSS bracing that was connecting with the column, and all of these had to be connected with a single gusset plate.
Solution: Fixing the Gusset plate connection:
Challenge 2: Fixing the trade and riser in the steel stair section:
Another big challenge was to model the stair and fix the trade and riser dimension. The detail provided for the stair was followed but we figured that the horizontal length of the stair needs to be revised so that the stair can be placed perfectly.
Our team calculated the exact length by which the stair needs to be increased for the stringer to be placed correctly. The changes were accepted and the structural design was updated.
