Project Stories
Using mockups to test clearances
cardboard mockups

Transporting and placing steel inside an existing, occupied space presents challenges. Concerned the steel beams would not fit some tight spaces, the team created cardboard mockups of the steel beams. The mockups were then carried through the hospital to test the clearance. As a result, the team worked with the designers to modify the size and configuration of some of the beams so upon delivery there were no issues.
