Being architects and engineers themselves, our modellers are able to support your design team as well. Whether you lack capacity of architects, electrical, structural or mechanical engineers, we are able to help you. Working closely together with your architects and engineers, we will make sure the construction company can build precisely what you have designed and that all potential clashes have been solved!
Whether the design is in 2D and we need to make a 3D BIM model, or we are part of the design team in close collaboration, our detailed model-services lead to a detailed model which supports the construction of the building with much less construction costs of failure, compared to 2D-designs, and ensures that the construction company can build exactly what was planned. From the detailed model, shop drawings can be made by all parties involved to have an efficient and error free construction process.
There are many reasons why you need a model from a 3D-scan; from a simple architectural model for space management, to a multi-disciplinary model to design an extension or to optimise facility management and operations. You can send us your point-cloud or we can even do the scanning ourselves with our state-of-art laserscanners and experienced professionals. The end result is the same: a detailed BIM-model of an existing building.
It sounds simple, delivering an as-built model after (re)construction works. But with years of experience, we know it can be a lot of work. Based on the red-line revisions that the construction company has sent us, or based on a 3D-scan on site, we can produce the as-built model for you. We can even compare the detailed design model with 3D-scans to see where construction has not been done according to the detailed design. We also understand what needs to be in the model if it will be used in the operational, facility management phase.
The detailed BIM model enables us to perform all kind of simulations: form a virtual construction simulation to optimise the construction, wind simulations, daylight simulations and fire simulations to a complete energy simulation of the building. Not only will this enhance the efficiency in the construction phase, it will also make it easier to optimise the design itself.
Based on our years of experience in design, engineering and modelling in BIM, we know how to support your BIM team as well! we can train your staff in BIM management and in using BIM software such as Revit. we can also audit your models; what can be optimised for your next project or to help you maintain the required level of quality. We also offer BIM content creation to populate your models. Our professionals are always up-to-date with the latest classification standards and guidelines such as uni class and COBie.
Our 4D-scheduling services which include coordination, clash collision and project phasing can offer you peace of mind, knowing that your project is going in the right direction. Our 5D-estimating services which will give you correct bills of quantities will assure you that the construction company can calculate with the exact quantities and materialisation. Our 6D sustainability services include a conceptual energy analysis which covers leed, breeam and breeam tracking. Please contact us for more information.
We have a lot of experience in providing rich data content as-built models with for instance COBie data extraction to ensure that your building will have efficient and clear life cycle strategies. Based on a 3D scan on site or an existing as-built Architectural model, we will optimise the BIM model for the operation of the building. Integration with facility management systems is also possible. In close collaboration with our partner BIM Academy, we have implemented these services to a number of clients.
