Crafted Structural Marvel for Signal House Project, Washington DC
Situated at the heart of the Union Market area, Washington DC, Signal House would be a 10-story, trophy office building, expected to get completed by 2022. The pioneering project is at the scale of the city neighborhood building, close to Florida Avenue.
Specialty of the project: Signal House is estimated to accommodate 4,700 multifamily. It would be a new lease on work life, set to achieve new heights in the workplace, transforming the way of work. Designed by Gensler, the office building would be of 225,000 SF, paying tribute to the historic industrial surroundings with unique terracotta, metal, and glass exteriors.
Project Vertical Served: Retail & Residential (Mixed Use Construction)
Number of People Worked on the Project - 2 BIM Engineers

Scope of Work executed by Tejjy Inc.
BIM Modeling for Structural Trade
Coordination of Concrete Model
CADD to BIM Conversion
Tejjy’s Work Process for Project Execution:
Provided BIM execution plan to create the BIM model.
Followed protocol given by architectural and structural team members.
Used licensed subscription - AEC packages from Autodesk software.
In-house team of Tejjy Inc. collaborated with clients to execute the BIM project.
Tejjy Inc.’s BIM engineers faced a problem with reinforcement in column junction, through concrete slab and slip fold.
Solution to the Challenges:
BIM engineers of Tejjy Inc. produced the 3D BIM model, identified clashes and worked with project managers, eliminating the problem.
Tejjy’s Inc. Problem Solving Approach:
Collaborated with project managers
Delivered clash free concrete modeling
Identified and sorted out multiple slab edge and beam errors.
How Tejjy empowered the owner?
Through Revit BIM modeling, Tejjy Inc. BIM engineers helped to reduce errors for this project, saving rework time, during the later stages of construction.
How the technology usage helped to simplify the project workflow?
Implementation of Revit BIM technology helped to minimize errors and generate a clash-free model at the onset of the construction, enabling smooth project execution.
