The strategy you adopt is driven by your project's aspirations.
You may want to use BIM for building maintenance, or you might need it as an as-built record for future works. Let us set your project up for success by:
Being your trusted advisor, informing and educating key stakeholders.
Developing a BIM Implementation Strategy; this sets the BIM protocols for project participants.
Assisting with the selection of your wider consultant team to align with your BIM requirements.
Assisting with the development of Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to ensure procurement contracts reflect the level of detail required.
Use BIM for...
Monitor your assets energy use and performance and adjust to optimise.
Future Visual Communication Content
Generate visual content to assist your business, such as AR/VR experiences for onboarding, wayfinding and change management.
Plan and manage future changes to how you use your building.
Accurately forecast OPEX and CAPEX.
Accurately track future modifications you make to your asset.
Schedule asset maintenance and replacement to streamline and reduce facilities management costs.
Effective facilities management is all about maintaining accurate data. The Building Information Model can continue to offer value long after the project is complete. Facilities Management benefits can include:
Improved space management
Efficient use of energy
Economical retrofits and renovations
BIM can be used to assist in the generation of accurate quantity take-offs and cost estimates throughout the lifecycle of a project.
This process allows the project team to see the cost effects of their changes, during all phases of the project, which can help curb excessive budget overruns due to project modifications.
Precisely quantify modeled materials
Quickly generate quantities to assist in the decision making process
Saves estimator's time by reducing quantity take-off time
Allows estimator's to focus on more value-adding activities in estimating such as: identifying construction assemblies, generating pricing and factoring risks, which are essential for high quality estimates
Easier exploration of different design options and concepts within the owner's budget
Contractors in the world’s top construction markets report that BIM helps them to improve productivity, efficiency, quality and safety on their projects, as well as their own competitiveness.
Particular benefits of implementing BIM, such as reduced errors and omissions, minimizing rework, and the ability to introduce new services are seen as significant advantages to contractors.
Clash detection is an important and integral part of the BIM process. Identifying clashes between discipline models in the design phase is critical to avoiding costly re-work on site.
Benefits of using BIM for coordination include;
Reduce and eliminate field conflicts; which reduces RFI's significantly compared to other methods
Reduced construction cost; potentially less cost growth (i.e. less change orders)
Decrease construction time
Increase productivity on site
More accurate as-built drawings
