Enhanc- ing its offering in key provinces, Dodge has entered exclusive relationships with the Brit- ish Columbia Construction Association and the majority of Ontario construction asso- ciations. Leveraging the analytical capacity and combined data sets of all parties, Dodge will further develop Canadian economic- and construction-related materials and forecasts for customers and association members. "Through these strategic partnerships, Dodge is doubling down on Canadian construction and reaffirming its commitment to providing unparalleled market insights on Canadian construction activity," says Dodge Data & Analytics CEO Mike Petrullo. "As always, we will continue to seek new Cana- dian sources to enhance our coverage and the value we offer the industry." The addition of new sources and the increased availability of documents has already fueled significant growth in Dodge's collection of Canadian projects and associ- ated plans and specifications. Liebherr-International AG, Germany, has announced a $45 million investment at its Liebherr USA Co. operation in Newport News, Va. The project will see construction of three new buildings, totaling just over 250,000 square feet, on a 28-acre plot adjacent a facil- ity the manufacturer has operated since 1970. The expansion will net space for Liebherr USA's new headquarters and administrative building, a production and workshop facility, plus ware- house and distribution building. Construction is expected to begin in July 2018 and be com- pleted by summer of 2020. TRIMBLE, ADAPT PROGRAM POST-TENSIONING PLAN Trimble has announced a partnership with construction software developer Adapt to provide structural engineers a streamlined solution for post-tensioned concrete design through direct integration of the Tekla Structural Designer (TSD) and ADAPT-Floor Pro platforms. The integration allows users to design steel and concrete for lateral and gravity loads in TSD and export model geometry and loading to ADAPT-Floor Pro for post-tensioned slab design. The com- bined solution eliminates the need to work in multiple solutions and recreate models and loads, saving time and reducing errors. "Post-tensioned concrete design can be tedious and challenging, requiring engineers to work with multiple models, from BIM to gravity and lateral design and floor slab," says Trimble Business Manager, Engineering Stuart Broome. "Post tensioned slabs typi- cally require individual floor models, manual loading inputs and complex design consid- erations. With this partnership, we increase efficiency and simplify the post-tensioning workflow for structural engineers." "The design capabilities of TSD comple- ment our core competence in post-tensioned slab and beam design and provide engi- neers with a solution for efficiently tackling any building project without rec- reating models and loading when designing post-tensioned elements," adds Adapt CEO Florian Aalami, Ph.D. BRIEFS ORGANIZATIONS Cement Handling Solutions.
