BIM

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

A Building Information Model can be created to represent building geometry, light analysis, spatial relationships, geographic details, and the properties of other building components using objects that may be undefined, generic or particular, or oriented with solid shapes or void spaces. They are automatically consistent, meaning that the objects are consistent in size, location and specification.

BIM, in a nutshell, represents the actual parts used to develop a building. This process prevents any uncertainties in construction. If any changes are to be done the model is updated. Today, because of the advancement of technology, modern BIM designs and modeling have been updated with state of the art tools and instruments. An example of this lies in laser scanning, a technology used to make accurate measurements in more complicated landscapes, with a rate of 50,000 points per second, and an effective range of around 500. Multiple set-ups are to be established inside an establishment, and a 3D model will be created afterwards. These can be of use in 2D drawings and other documents needed for the construction.

 

The entire process aims to revolutionize architecture by changing traditional phases that use computer-aided drafting methods for drawing, as well as adding more data sharing capabilities than before.

The whole BIM work process comprises of three parts namely

  • Building- which includes the complete life-cycle i.e. from designing to operation till demolition.

  • Information- which includes all the features or traits of the building.

  • Modeling- which includes digitization of the facility using tools i.e. building simulation, its delivery, and operation.

BIM process is of great importance as it:

  • Offers better visualization

  • Enhances the productivity by providing information in precise and easy manner

  • Assists in creating coordination in between construction elements

  • Synchronizes important information such as suppliers, material details, location details and estimation

  • Increases speed of delivery

  • Assists in reducing facility construction cost.

At Projecs we animate and interact with objects to provide the best outcome with advanced coordination.

 

We Deliver: 

  • Clash detection and Reports

  • Simulation

  • Animation

  • Walk-through

  • Quantity takeoffs and measurements

  • Management and visualization of Variation Orders

  • Visualizing what-if scenarios

  • 4D capabilities for scheduling, phasing, sequencing, and animation.

3D Laser Scanning

3D Laser Scanning also referred to as 3D laser surveying refers to the use of laser technology to gather the precise physical data of objects and environments. Laser scanning is commonly found in medical scanning equipment, and is also prevalent in the most up to date modeling/surveying methods used by engineering firms and construction companies.

Construction companies use laser scanners to gather the precise data of construction site terrain, environments surrounding sites, and construction in progress.
