Abstract: The computer group at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill has developed a unique workstation environment which aids both the generation of information in the design phase, as well as the generation of construction documents. The workstation reduces the time and effort required to select an appropriate design solution, allowing for more thorough investigation and development of alternatives. The workstation also aids in the production of construction documents, improving their quality and consistency. Such a workstation requires many components, which have been developed in response to the needs and requests of practicing engineers. The workstation environment allows the engineer to choose from a variety of computer tools to assist in the design process.
