Capsys – BIM Modeling

Capsys is embracing the use of REVIT and other building information modeling technology.  Capsys engineering staff have completed extensive training and education about building modeling, simulation techniques and interactive collaboration.  These methods and tools will become the standard for design of all projects going forward and we are very excited about this new paradigm in design.

Recycled content becomes the norm

It has become just commonplace for materials to have their recycled content published.  Capsys has regularly used high recycled content materials and here are is a short list of the most commonly used:

Structural Steel – up to 90%, Light Gauge Steel – up to 80%, Reinforcing Steel – up to 100%, Gypsum Wallboard – up to 100%!

6 story building = 2 weeks

Capsys just completed setting a 6-story, 65 unit supportive housing building in Brooklyn.  The project is a supportive housing building located the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn.  The 30,000 SF modular portion of the building was erected in 2 weeks, now the general contractor will be able to complete the building in record time.
