Solution

Before using KeyPOST the challenge with projects was designing deep planted posts on minimal foundations and having the ability to change grades of steel for posts. This difficulty is alleviated by KeyPOST as it offers the functionality to change the steel grade by selecting from manufacture lists.

The AutoCAD interface for inserting the structure details is an advantage over other software. KeyPOST also provides a facility to certify the post and foundation calculations, something clients need in order to get designs signed off, and something that was previously unavailable.

Storey Design Ltd is completely happy with their decision to use KeyPOST and actively recommend it to others.

 

Result

KeyPOST is a structural design program that provides for the design of sign installations. While many will use the AutoPOST feature that suggests suitable structures, it can also be used to test stability against the effects of wind loading. KeyPOST is fully accredited by BSI against BS EN 12899-1:2007.

KeyPOST allows you to create consistent, reliable data in a structured format allowing you to collaborate with others and aids you on your BIM journey.

KeyPOST works in conjunction with KeySIGN to create 3D sign structures in full colour that can be exported as a BIM model to use in Navisworks and IFC which can be imported into other BIM software.
