Details about the Metric DemoBuild

The Metric DemoBuild that you have received has a few differences from the customized version of MH Pro! that FBE provides for Trial Projects. Each of the following may or may not be true for your company.

  1. Precast pieces have the height measured from the outside bottom.
  2. The pieces are designed to meet the Ontario Provincial Standards.
  3. Selected frames and grates may not be the same as the ones that you use.
  4. The pipes in the example structures may not be those that are used in your area.
  5. Angles are measured Clockwise (CW).

The example structures in the DemoBuild have specific ways that the following are presented (these presentations can be modified for your company).

  1. Adjustment (rings or leave short)
  2. Joint Seals
  3. Opening/connector Descriptions

If you chose to do a Trial Project, then FBE customer engineers will request data about your precast pieces to put into MH Pro! so that the Shop and Submittal Drawings have the content and format your company requires. There are different versions of the Shop Drawing available in the Metric DemoBuild for any structure in the sample jobs. You may chose elements from these Shops Drawings to define what your Shop Drawing will look like.
