build retail stores and innovative structuresin timber around the UK. Mark Sinclair, Associate at evolve, described how RobotMillennium is used in this application. ‘Ourwork in this sector has been in conjunctionwith Tesco and other major retailers that areintroducing measures to reduce their carbonfootprint in new buildings by specifying lami-nated timber rather than steel in the buildingframe.Robot allows design and analysis of 3Dframes to be created that incorporate differentmaterials i.e. steel & timber and accommo-dates their properties. This optimises the useof materials and allows the substitution of steel members within the standard 18.0m
12.0m grid for timber with the minimum of effort. Aside from the structural engineeringdata that the software produces, one of thesignificant advantages of using Robot hasbeen the output of material quantity andspecification report schedules that we pass onto our suppliers and others in the supplychain. These reports which would be timeconsuming to produce manually are generatedautomatically by the software as the designdevelops allowing us and other stakeholdersto understand the cost and quantity implica-tions of design variations at an early stage.’Using Robot Millennium, evolve designed
