With BIM, we can detect multidisciplinary clashes and report them to you well before the time, preventing any delays and cost overruns. As the construction process proceeds, different stakeholders contribute their own design and layout models. Often these different models contain several overlapping elements or “clashes” which need to be resolved for the construction to proceed.
Using BIM, precise 3D models are built and then coordinated with other disciplines and clashes are detected well before the start of the construction, scissoring down project delays and cost overruns. As construction progresses, the level of detail in the model increases and clash tests are re-run. Different models contain several overlapping elements or “clashes” which are resolved for the construction to proceed.
For instance, we can tell you if the HVAC ducts will clash with the structural beam framing after doing a clash analysis of the models. This saves any costs that would have otherwise gone towards demolition of clashing components, additional procurement of redesigned components or regeneration of drawings.
A coordinated model incorporating Architectural, Structural and MEP disciplines is the output after adjustments to the clashes to ensure minimum constructability constraints during construction. This model can then be used for all the stakeholders to be on the same page as far as the progress of the construction and target realization is concerned. This coordinated model is free of any interdisciplinary clashes and thus facilitates in greater and more efficient communication of updated designs among all the parties involved.
