Business model adopted

This project involved 4D, 5D and 6D capable BIM modeling, coordination and shop drawing creation and an hourly business model was adopted for the project.

Project synopsis

The proposed Residential development was a 40 storey tower, sitting on a 5 story platform base (G+M+4 Platforms). The wellbeing club level houses the swimming pool, exercise room, finished patio nurseries with a selective running track and wellbeing and facilities for recreation. The stopping, including guests’ vehicles, is distributed all through the mezzanine and 4 platform levels for the benefits of the residents.

Our scope of services

Our scope of work in the project was 3D, 4D, 5D and 6D stages. Revit was utilized to carry out BIM Modeling whereas Navisworks Manage was used for coordination and clash detection.

Client Inputs

Client inputs for this project included design drawings in CAD.
Design drawings were used to develop 3D models which were then brought together with the Architectural and 3D model. The spatial data in the model which were clashing and could not be resolved was notified to the client through written RFI featuring the areas of conflicts. The issues were followed up using the issue tracker. Coordination gatherings led by our BIM facilitator at the customer’s site facilitated in examining the issues and resolving them.

Result

The final deliverables to the client included a coordinated set of MEP fabrication drawings and BOQ. The same BIM model was to be used for Facility Management purpose too.
