10 years Polytek

Today June 1st, exactly 10 years ago in 2011, Polytek was founded! It all started in a small portacabin, but didn't all big companies start out in some kind of shed? Happy birthday to us!  

Polytek is the first Benelux user of Autodesk Construction Cloud!

Polytek is proud to be the first Benelux user of Autodesk Construction Cloud. With this cloud based solution we can grant personalised access to up-to-date and accurate information for every team member including external collaborators. Read all about it in this Autodesk blogpost about Polytek.   

Polytek Tienen moves out!

From now on the Polytek Tienen offices are located at Industriepark 45, 3300 Tienen. Same phonenumber, same team, but more space to take care of your project!  

Polytek is expanding into Wallonia!

We’re starting off the year with good news: Polytek is expanding into Wallonia! On February 1st we will be opening a new office in ‘the city of light’ Liège, so we can take care of projects even better in this part of the country! Polytek now has offices in Tienen and Liège, and we're looking to further expand our presence in Belgium and internationally!

POLYTEK present at the KU Leuven entrepreneurs day

We recently manned a booth at Group T’s entrepreneurs’ day. Many students visited our stand and got acquainted with the tools we use at Polytek for mechanical, civil and structural engineering.  Using a virtual reality headset, visitors to our stand were able to walk across a platform in  Group T’s atrium. This of course allows us to make detailed engineering very visual!

Visually and technically correct? Effortless!

Modification of an existing installation means there will be as much reuse as possible, and the existing situation will be measured as accurately as possible. Usually, the elements known at the time are measured. This will often restrict the designer and result in tunnel vision. To stop this from happening, we use a 3D scan to produce a point cloud of your installation. This results in the quick…

Perfect positioning of new platform in existing situation

When you create a new design, you naturally want to avoid any clashes with the existing installation. A 3D scan is the perfect tool to eliminate the chance of this happening. To connect to an existing installation, we convert specific elements of the point cloud into CAD objects. This means we have a point of reference to start from when designing. This design can be accurately evaluated against…

Fast, accurate and meticulous

Do you want to make a connection between two fixed points? Of course, this measurement cannot be made until the fixed points are in their exact position. At the instruction of the end customer, we started by producing a design our customer could use to request quotations. Our customer was able to use this design to request a quotation from various suppliers. This enabled the end customer to…

Virtual Reality

Both communication and visualisation are essential elements when executing a project. That’s why Polytek uses VR technology. Adding this to our 3D reviews allows us to gain a tangible picture, and you can even walk through the design before anything is built. Would you like to use this technology in your designs? Don’t hesitate to contact us!      

Feel the vibe, taste the sweetness

In order to be able to produce the technical design, we started with a graphic design every time. In this case it was the DJ Stage designed by Antje Kestens. Using her sketches, we set to work to ensure the design was feasible from a technical point of view. To this end, we created a full 3D drawing of the stage, including all the décor and banners. We then checked the design against the relevant…
