Depending on the design phase, the level of detail (LOD) may vary, but the process of modeling and the collaboration of several trade models work largely remains the same. The BIM approach and file formats such as IFC can help to handle different trades together, all submodels can be integrated and handled in the same application, so the whole project can be reviewed on the same platform by all participants. Having a very accurate structure model is one the most important steps at the very beginning of the project, since every other trade depends on it. Naturally at an early design phase the structure is less defined, so the model could not contain other trades with higher level of development. A high quality architectural model always relies on the structure and serves as a background for the MEP systems. Since this covers a large part of the model, the most important action is to choose the appropriate LOD. Choosing the correct settings can save time and eliminate unnecessary work. We prepare BIM models by following a well estabilished process and use continuous monitoring to ensure quality, while keep it extremely flexible as well to be able to adapt to all changes that occurs during the design development. The construction specific building model is a perfect tool to manage constructability in 3D, export quantities from the BIM model that can support estimation and visualize the construction for marketing and scheduling purpose.
For a successful project and to be able to use all the benefits that BIM can offer one of the first and definitely the most essential step is to create a proper 3D model through a special modeling technique and methodology that focuses on construction…
MEP – Mechanical Electrical Plumbing
Our BIM services help MEP professionals to design, coordinate and document MEP systems. 3D model-based BIM process makes projects more transparent, aid design and speeds up project delivery, reduce and resolve clashes during design to avoid constructability issues on site.
What is a point cloud?
Renovation, refurbishment, expansion and facility management – these are the most common fields where point clouds are used.
