BIM Services facilitates construction professionals to gain full control over their projects. Interference between building systems can be checked with 3D BIM modeling. Construction companies that implement BIM in their work processes can visualize schematic structures before construction and provide better project plans. Collisions are easily detected, eliminating system conflicts before installation. Dedicated 3D BIM Modelers streamline the process throughout a building’s lifecycle, giving professionals a complete view of the construction.
Now let’s see how the construction professionals can take full control of construction with BIM?
View buildability issues – Skillful engineers work with 3d to 6d BIM, enabling project coordination, asset management, logistics planning and accurate cost estimation. BIM helps solve buildability issues by identifying inconsistencies in input drawings, incomplete information, dimensional errors in plan and sectional drawings, and more. The engineers can make a root cause analysis for the dimension errors, resulting in collisions. In addition, the size of the structures can be revised, included and moved. To take an example, if the bar collides with the window, the size of the window can be revised. If floor and beam cut-out are missing in the drawing, cut-out can be included. In addition, if the manhole collides with the structure, the location of the manhole can be shifted.
Visualize the build sequence – The entire build sequence can be visualized with 4D BIM, which helps project stakeholders visualize the entire range of construction events, with insight into the progress of construction activity, throughout the project’s lifecycle. The build sequence can be linked to the BIM model to display real-time simulation in an animated video. Based on 4D presentation, planned vs. the actual order of construction can be compared throughout the project lifecycle. Construction planners can explore the 4D simulation to assess the significance of the proposed design for the construction schedule and work process. They can detect collisions, improve the construction schedule, track materials and manage the supply chain. 4D BIM acts as a powerful communication tool between the project stakeholders, resulting in a better understanding of the project milestone and the construction plan. Delays and rework are kept to a minimum, so the project team can carefully plan and coordinate operations down to the last detail, both in time and in space.
Save costs and time – BIM helps to save significant time and money for the project. Costs can be saved for labor, MEP items, disassembly, rework, reinforcement validation, design changes and more. Total man-days are also saved from BIM, such as man-days for civil articles such as reinforcing steel reinforcement, finishing, formwork, interior articles, facade, man-days for disassembly and man-days for rework. Revit design and manufacturing model in Navisworks can be combined to avoid the cost of rework resulting from collision avoidance.
Implement BIM technology for construction to maximize return on investment, save time and aid successful project execution. BIM plays a crucial role in design optimization, coordination and construction management. Adopt BIM and facilitate design disciplines to collaborate flawlessly, improve work efficiency, reduce errors, verify aesthetic looks and improve building performance.
