The initial form and function of a building requires both stakeholder and planning approval. Our on-demand support can rapidly improve the visualisation, communication, and design intent of the project. To assist in critical decision-making, stakeholders can experience an immersive environment to visualise and “walk-through” the proposed design options.
Design and coordination can be dramatically enhanced through BIM software and our optimised processes. We can support your design team by creating the LOD300 BIM, and producing fully coordinated Architectural models with annotated drawings.
Technical design models (LOD400) require a specific skillset, and knowledge of building construction and systems. Our engineers can produce LOD400 models either directly from a design developed model and/or from 2D drawings and sketches.
Typically supporting the main contractor, we can provide LOD500 BIM deliverables. Generic objects are replaced with manufacturers’ objects, and essential information re-linked to include specified details. Clash detection and coordination can be carried out to mitigate construction risk.
We carry out verification of installation to match the BIM, using 3D laser scanning and point cloud coordination. To provide true as-built records, we can produce photographic reports showing inaccuracies and/or amend the model to reflect the precise installation layouts. The model represents the as-constructed project, with all necessary information (maintenance and operation records, commissioning certificates, health and safety requirements, etc) included in handover documentation.
