ArCADia-SEWAGE INSTALLATIONS 2.0  Rp. 8.900.000

ArCADia-SEWAGE INSTALLATIONS is an industry-specific module of the ArCADia BIM system, based on the ideology of Building Information Modeling (BIM). The program can be used to create professional design documentation of drainage systems on architectural background drawings. The program is intended for designers of internal drainage systems.

ArCADia-SEWAGE INSTALLATIONS allows the object-oriented insertion of drawing elements on architectural background drawings, including the creation of design diagrams and generation of extensions and profiles. The user can design a drainage system in terms of drained waste water: grey and black water, rainwater (for the locations of outlet pipes in a building or when it is necessary to run outlet pipes under a building floor) and process waste-water. Plan drawings can be produced on architectural background drawings in the form of bitmap or vector files.

The user can use a library of the elements used in drainage systems, which can be extended and adapted to the user’s own needs as regards devices used and pipeline material types. A template can also be prepared, including the possibility to save the default settings for each program elements and transfer it together with a design between various workstations.
Initially, the user locates risers for a group of recipients, including the possibility to locate offsets (penetrations under floors) ventilation and riser connection methods. To this end, the floor thickness and level height are entered (building geometry data from ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE will be generated automatically).

Connections of devices to risers can be designed and the hydraulic loads can be defined on that basis, which in turn enables the riser diameter to be determined. The program enables the definition of objects in the horizontal and vertical sections: cleanouts, cleanout openings, access chambers, fittings (storm flaps) and backdrops. 
An extension of a partial/entire system is generated based on data regarding a number of devices connected to a riser and drainage system.

The program generates longitudinal profiles of a system on the basis of a set gradient, determined diameters and data regarding strip footing and other objects. Individual parameters, e.g. the diameter, can be additionally defined in such a generated profile, which will be considered in the general model of a drainage system.
