Building Information Modelling
To ensure an accurate quotation of your project we specialise in recreating the standard 2D plans into a 3D BIM model using the latest market leading software. We have proved several times over how valuable this process is.
In Brief, BIM – building information modelling is a coordinated set of processes, supported by technology, that add value by creating, managing and sharing the properties of an asset throughout its life-cycle. Models incorporate graphic, physical, commercial, environmental and operational data. In brief a detailed model will provide very accurate quantities of materials required for the build, enabling us to provide you, the customer an accurate quotation!
The move from 2D drawings to 3D models is well underway and gaining steam in the architectural, engineering, and construction industry!
The wealth of information that’s easily accessible about project sites has expanded greatly with better mapping tools and images of Earth. With BIM, designers can have all of that input compiled and shared in a model.
In advance of construction, BIM also enables the project team to ‘build’ the project in a virtual environment, rehearsing complex procedures, optimizing temporary works designs and planning procurement of materials, equipment and manpower.
The BIM tool set helps automate clash detection of elements such as electrical conduit or duct work that run into a beam. By modeling all of these things first, clashes are discovered early, and costly on-site clashes can be reduced.
Faster project delivery
Time savings of up to 50% can be achieved by agreeing the design concept early in project development to eliminate late stage design changes; resolving complex construction details before the project goes on site; avoiding clashes; producing fabrication and construction drawings directly from the model; and using model data to control construction equipment.
Exact quantity takeoffs mean that the materials are not over-ordered. Use of the BIM model for automated fabrication of equipment and components enables more efficient materials handling and waste recovery.
