BIM Modeling, Construction Simulation from 2D data helps speed up design workflow during bidding process for a student dormitory of a U.S. university
One among the top 25 architectural firms in the U.S.
The client had implemented BIM for their university project. They were looking for a capable BIM services partner to transform their 2D design data into coordinated BIM model. The client also required model-based construction scheduling solutions to speed up the bidding process.
Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Navisworks
Serve as an extension of client’s team to streamline BIM workflows for the project.
Assist in assessing constructability of technical design choices.
Assist in identifying sequencing issues and in project visualization and analysis.
Uncoordinated design data resulting in design conflicts and quality issues.
Time consuming process to systemize naming conventions for drawings, elements and activities in MS Project.
Project to be completed in a short duration.
Solutions & Approach.
Converted 2D data into 3D Revit models for architecture, structural and MEP trades.
Resolved drawing conflicts, systematized naming conventions for model elements per schedule data, and added model elements, delivering BIM models at LOD 300.
Following model approvals, performed model integration and identified clashes using Navisworks, developing custom tools to automate several clash mitigation tasks.
Integrated design updates and revisions to resolve clashes, following a conflict management and reporting plan to reduce time spent on clash resolution.
Delivered a fully coordinated BIM model (architecture, structure and MEP).
Simulated construction schedules in Navisworks.
Developed construction simulation animation video in Navisworks Manage.
Helped client incorporate BIM workflows and improve design quality.
Timely solutions for project visualization and viewing through simulations helped speed up the bidding process.
Completed the project within 8 weeks, helping the client gain 20% time savings.
On this project, the BIM implementation influenced the whole supply chain. We completed the project on schedule and half a percent under budget.
