Zalk Josephs Fabricators Project Featured in Informed Infrastructure

SDS/2 played a pivotal role in the success of the 54-story, 1.2-million-square-foot 150 N. Riverside project, a new high rise located on the edge of the Chicago River in downtown Chicago, Illinois.

Zalk Josephs Fabricators was the fabricator on the project.

As detailed in the March/April 2016 issue of Informed Infrastructure, Zalk Josephs coordinated closely with Magnusson Klemencic Associates (MKA) on the project. Using MKA-provided Revit models and 2D CAD drawings as a reference, the Zalk Josephs team modeled the entire steel structure into SDS/2.

The resulting fabrication models were shared with Chicago Steel LLC — the project's steel erector — throughout the process to ensure constructability. Using SDS/2 Viewer, the erector could review and comment on the planned fabrication.

Zalk Josephs used SDS/2 and feedback from the erector to optimize the weight of each piece to match the lift capacity of the crane. The company also fed its SDS/2 models directly into its Ficep Corp's CNC machine for fabrication.

To find out more about the challenges in this unique, complex project — which features the first use of Grade 70 steel as well as the largest rolled-steel sections used for building construction in the U.S. — and the importance of SDS/2, read Tower of Power in Informed Infrastructure.
