IFC development in tight cooperation
The first time Gerard Knepper, GJK-engineering got acquainted with IFC was in 2010 in a project with Xella, developer and manufacturer of building and insulation materials.
– We looked for possibilities to exchange information with other parties via IFC. In that period, IFC was still in its infancy, Knepper recalls.

With the help of BIM technology, the Acetra team works together with architects and contractors to create a modern design that blends seamlessly with its traditional surroundings.
Log as a material is sense-friendly, calming and natural. It is acoustically pleasant, balances moisture in indoor air, and its construction physics are well suited for Scandinavian climate. Timber structures enable carbon-negative construction.
In construction, challenges come with the territory. But for some projects, like this three-story residential/commercial CLT structure in the Netherlands, the complications are what take the design to the next level.
