“I think one of the things that makes Pankow special is that we self-perform heavily. It means that we perform trade work for our own projects, the ones that we manage. We make sure that we go above and beyond to ensure our buildings are high quality. Part of that is self-performing concrete structures in our projects. We build and pour our own concrete,” explains Luis Perez.

“We try to get reference models from the design team to bring into Tekla, but often times they tend to be inaccurate and full of coordination issues. By modeling the concrete ourselves using Tekla, we can catch these issues during the preconstruction phase resulting in fewer RFI’s during construction and a more accurate estimate for the owner,” says Lou Varni.
