Client Spotlight: Dalcassians Manufacturing

Dalcassians accelerates design and fabrication with MWF steel framing software

Dalcassians Manufacturing specializes in producing prefabricated framing systems in cold formed steel, for residential and commercial construction projects.

They were contracted by Denk & Roche Builders to model and fabricate over 300,000 sq. ft. of knockdown interior wall kits for the Triangle Square—a multifamily residential complex in Chicago. 

At 7 stories tall and comprising 298 units, it is now one of the largest cold formed steel structures in the city. 

 To ensure the prefabricated wall kits were produced with precise measurements and smoothly installed on-site, teams needed to ensure there was no room for error. 

As noted by Brian Bembenek, Managing Partner at Dalcassians,  “The project BIM specialists identified early on the desire to route MEP piping around interior metal stud framing.”

Dalcassians chose MWF to simplify the task, by modelling the framing virtually, and coordinating between trades—“By using MWF,  Dalcassians was able to run our framing model against the MEP model for clash detection and accommodate the request”

The ability to improvise and pivot in MWF software to meet the last-minute changes that come up on every jobsite helped our customer stay organized and on schedule. – Brian Bembenek, Managing Partner – Dalcassians Manufacturing.

After successfully clearing the framing models, each individual component was fabricated at Dalcassians’ facility, ready to be shipped on-site for assembly.

They were also able to smoothen the logistics of transporting the wall panels: “MWF also gave us the ability to batch and deliver requested sections of framing while keeping the jobsite clean and clear of waste that otherwise would have been in the way of other trades.”
