Sometimes the choice of the various designers of all specialties leads to the development of the projects according to a traditional method, where each one of the bi-dimensional drawing is performed independently. This methodology is often synonymous of fragmented work, closed departments themselves, failure of communication between the various teams, etc.
The advance of BIM methodologies and the positive impact that it generates often leads to the need of conversion from 2D projects to BIM models in order to coordinate, plan and manage more effectively the several projects.
The conversion of projects performed by traditional methods in BIM models allows several improvements to the existing projects. It will have a positive impact on the quality of the projects and within the time limits and the established costs.
Perform three-dimensional models based on 2D elements allows to coordinate more closely the several specialties. By being able to compatible the several models corresponding to the different specialties, semi-automatically and in a single database, conflicts and incompatibilities are detected faster and with less effort, resulting in incompatibility reports that will allow the several designers to make the necessary changes in the projects before they can harm the construction.
In any construction, regardless of their size, calculate the quantities of necessary materials and resources is a fundamentally task for the conclusion of the construction. An excessive quantification of resources will result in high budget against the potential competitors, which could not match of the owner expectations. Rather, quantify the resources below that is expected could lead to losses during construction.
The use of BIM models for quantity takeoff, developed in accordance with methodologies which are adapted to your business and your measurement criteria will ensure a perfect alignment of the quantities with the real project. Changes of the project will immediately result in quantities update. This will reduce the time that is required to survey the quantities of material and resources and it will increase the rigor which these elements are calculated.
The traditional methodology, based on bi-dimensional drawings produced by one or several entities often gives rise to problems and inconsistencies in the various projects. The need of, each time of a change is made to the project, update the drawings independently makes any change into a slow procedure and liable to errors.
Using BIM models for drawings extraction ensures a greater accuracy of the documentation in relation to the original projects.
With our methodology, any changes made in the several designs, and consequently in BIM models, will immediately impact on all drawings extracted from BIM files.
When we perform the conversion of your projects into BIM formats, our procedures will be enriched with your internal standards. We will consider your graphic representation criteria so that the drawings extracted from BIM models correspond to your expectations.
The use of BIM methodologies, since they are adapted to your internal procedures, allows a more correct quantity takeoff than the traditional methodology. We can integrate BIM models with your structure of the budget so as to obtain a real estimate of the projects which need to be executed.
Using this advanced methodology, you can isolate and visualize in a three-dimensional way the items that belongs to the budget spreadsheet, you can phase the work more easily, etc.
By integrating BIM models with your structure of the budget, you can analyze, in real-time, the financial implications of any changes in the project and reduce the errors and omissions of the budget.
