Construction documentation

Dates of creation

1997 - 2016

Level of archival description

Series

Extent and Medium

  • approximately 5100 digital files (4.8 GB)

Scope and Content

Series 2: Construction documentation, 1997 – 2016, consists of over 5100 born-digital files that relate to the construction and construction documentation phases of the Austrian Hypo Alpe-Adria Center. The majority of the records date from 1999 to 2003.

This series relates to construction and largely contains CAD drawings and photographs which demonstrate the progress of the project in the built environment over time. The roughly 3600 drawings in this series include floorplans, detail documentation, as-built drawings, shop drawings, elevations, and site plans. CAD formats represented include PowerCAD, PowerDraw, Microstation, and AutoCAD. There are also approximately 200 3D models and plans completed in Form*Z. These were likely used for renderings and 3D printing.

This series also contains a significant number of images, including renderings and photographs of the construction site and physical model. Notably, there are a number of high resolution photographs of the Hypo Alpe-Adria exterior. There is also a small amount of related textual documentation.

Reference Number

AP192.S2

Physical Description

This series contains a large number of unidentified files. Files with no extension were created on a Mac computer and are most likely PowerCAD files. Files with the extension .PD6 are PowerDraw files. Both file types were not able to be opened at the time of processing. Files ending with certain file extensions (.bse, .poc, .s01) are native to Microstation. The .bse files are base files containing line drawings, and the .poc and .poc2 files are poché files which layer colors, textures, and patterns over the base files. The .s01 files apply scale to the base files. It is unclear what the files with extensions .dg2 and .v000 are, but they seem to relate to the other Microstation files. The Form*Z files are accessible using Form*Z 6 RenderZone Plus. Some Form*Z files are missing some external references or contain other minor errors.

Arrangement

Materials in this series were grouped topically as much as possible, based on the received order and original directory structure, and then arranged in rough chronological order.

General note

  • For some directories, particularly those containing Quark XPress or certain image formats, the command line tool addext was used to append file extensions to files without them.

    Physical Description:

    The Form*Z files are accessible using Form*Z 6 RenderZone Plus. Some Form*Z files are missing some external references or contain other minor errors. There were a number of files that were unidentified at the time of processing. Files without file extensions were created on Mac computers, and are very likely PowerCAD drawings. Files with the extension .PD6 are PowerDraw files. It was not possible to open these files at the time of processing.

    Arrangement:

    These four directories were moved together due to their overlapping or related content.
