Construction drawings can now be taken digitally to the construction site

For three years now, Tebarex has been intensely engaged in 3D designing of complete horticultural projects, including water and electrical installations. In 2022, this led to the introduction of Next Level Design (NLD). Thanks to this experience, Tebarex has now mastered 3D designing, says Operations Manager John Vollebregt. "We no longer undertake any project without NLD."

So, things are running smoothly on the supplier side, but now Tebarex also offers a program that makes it all even clearer for the customer: Dalux. "It's a viewer that can be used on a tablet or phone to view working drawings of all the underground piping, and to extract the information needed to properly install the work."

The program displays all the piping: water, electricity, CO2, cables, heating, etc. "Instead of each installer bringing their own drawings as was the case before, there is now just one master plan that all installers refer to and which the customer can also view. Everything is thought out in advance to minimize discussions in the field. As a result, engineering takes a bit more time at the beginning, but you save a lot of time and frustration during execution."

No more paper
3D drawings are not new in themselves, but what is new is that you no longer need to take them on paper to the construction site. Because the drawings are available in the Dalux program, everyone – customer, installer, project manager – has constant access to the latest version of the master plan on their tablet or phone.

"At the end of each day, the master plan in Dalux is updated from the cloud. So, in the morning, you immediately have the most recent version. And it's not just about the drawings, but also about parts lists, material specifications, and item numbers to find the goods in the digital packing lists. So, everything you need to get to work on site."

Positive feedback about Dalux has been coming in from the field, from both customers and supervisors, John reports. The program was successfully applied in the Ely Fenland project carried out together with Bom Group.

"And also in Mexico, local parties are working with Dalux, making the life of installers suddenly much more enjoyable. The installers there are also very enthusiastic about Dalux, in which files can also be downloaded for offline availability." Installing complex water and electrical installations is no longer easy and therefore such 3D support is a 'must-have'.

John also believes that pre-planning is useful in indoor and vertical farming, where space is limited and everything must be carefully planned in advance. John and his colleagues are happy to tell visitors more about it at their stand at GreenTech (02.332).
