BIM Digital Integration 

What is Digital Integration 

The objective of Digital Integration is to increase the quality of data, exchange, conversion speed, and advanced analytics. There is a need for the development of a single source of truth for AECO companies, which can support transparent project delivery. This requires a platform capable of collection, analysis, and dissemination of project data.

Despite improvements in technology and practices, productivity in the AECO industry remains fairly stagnant. Companies have adopted various tools and software applications, but no real impact on the productivity index has been made. This is because the AECO industry is still operating in a highly fragmented way by adopting different systems simultaneously for different jobs. This disconnected technology adoption landscape will not secure long-term success. SO an integrated approach is needed.

Point Solutions:  

The fragmented nature of construction encourages companies to adopt fragmented point solutions to meet specific and immediate needs. These systems are good at dividing the work up into chunks but less effective in making sure that the individual pieces integrate together. Data is captured in separate systems by different teams and time is wasted integrating this data between the different systems. This lack of digitalization hinders not just the collaborative effort of teams and key functions but also slows the operation.

Point solutions demand lower upfront costs and as projects are scaled up more point solutions are needed to meet demands. For instance, a company might only need an estimation tool in the first year, but as the business grows, more tools are demanded, such as scheduling tools, bidding management software, procurement management tools, and quality and safety software, etc. Subsequently, as more point solutions are added to the company’s technical landscape, more investment is required.

An integrated platform and its advantages: 

An integrated solution connects all stakeholders in one place: the BIM modeling team, quantity takeoff and estimation, and the procurement team, to name a few, are all connected on one platform for end-to-end digital integration. This enhances collaboration across the project regardless of location.

As a business grows in size and complexity, the platform allows ease of integration with third-party tools making it effortless to extend platform capabilities. The platform constantly evolves to accommodate the growing needs of an enterprise, securing long-term success.

An integrated platform or a Digital 5D BIM platform covers the entire lifecycle of building projects, from planning, construction, to operation and maintenance. With an integrated platform at the beginning, it is much easier to standardize workflows and adapt to changes as multiple modules interact and share data, ensuring all relevant parties are kept informed throughout relevant stages of the workflow.

For many companies in the construction industry, project data is scattered and unstructured. An integrated platform provides a common data environment across every stage of the construction process. This allows teams to access and share the latest project data in real-time, mitigating risks, preventing safety issues and maximizing the potential for productivity.

Portfolio

With over 1500 projects to our credit across diverse sectors and around the world, we truly are a global company in every sense. No matter the scale or complexity of your project, we deliver on our promise of unrivaled BIM expertise.

International airport terminal

International airport terminal

Project Area:480,000M2

What we did:Our scope of work essentially comprised of building a BIM model, to include clash detection and resolution, and vital coordination between the architectural, structural and services (MEPF) teams. For this, we leveraged our team of on-site as well as off-site coordinators and modelers, to create the resolutions of the model and build the model at LOD 300, respectively.

Metro rail project

Metro rail

Project Area:18 Miles, with a total of 38 stations

What we did:We were the 5D BIM consultants on this prestigious project and worked alongside consortium partners to facilitate 3D modeling, clash detection and conflict resolution. Leveraging the Bentley platform, namely AssetWise, ProjectWise and RIB iTWO, we created models, project schedules, construction sequencing and what-if scenarios.

School project

School

Project Area:270,000 Sq. ft.

What we did:For this high school building, we generated a BIM model at LOD 300, to consider the architectural and structural elements involved. We also worked on the exterior elevation details and materials, in addition to the site landscape and site elements. We created the BIM model from the input Point Cloud Data.
