BIM Model Coordination
The BIM Guys offer a full range of BIM management options from managing the
BIM model coordination for the general contractor to model creation and shop drawings for the sub-contractors.
Coordination of a BIM Model.
A construction manager must understand the technology of construction.
A BIM model has similar requirements. Managing the
development of the virtual construction model requires skills that
are similar to managing the real thing. Too often, BIM
production is staffed with people who understand computer
technology but don’t understand how to manage the workflow
into a BIM model from multiple sources
A project that intends to exploit the benefits of BIM needs a
manager and an interdisciplinary team staffed with people from
the organizations that contribute to the model. The team can
integrate drawings from the AEs, subcontractors and
manufacturers into a complete model and detect coordination
problems with clash detectionroutines.
Constructibility reviews trigger design adjustments.
BIM allows trust to be built early, well before construction
begins. There’s an opportunity to allocate model space to each
subcontractor to give each of them confidence that the process
will not only find clashes in their systems before they get to the
field, but that the subcontractor will have the ability to model the
clearances and working space needed to install their work.
RFIs are anticipated and should be minimal. In developing the
model, questions surface before construction.
So how does the process work?
The following four videos are an overview of the process in Navisworks.
These videos are a recap of a presentation I did for the New Orleans Revit Users Group.
This video is the first in four on the basics of Navisworks and how to use the clash detection tools. Video one covers getting around in Navisworks using the nav wheel and other tips and tricks. This video also covers some navigation tricks in Revit.
FILE TYPES AND LOADING FILES
This video is the second in four on the basics of Navisworks and how to use the clash detection tools. It also discusses the process that Navisworks uses to convert and use different file types.
This video is the third in four on the basics of Navisworks and how to use the clash detection tools. Video one covers using clash detection in Navisworks and other tips and tricks.
CORRECTING THE CLASHES AND RELOADING THE FILES
This video is the final of the four on the basics of Navisworks and how to use the clash detection tools. Video four covers correcting the problem in Revit and reloading it into Navisworks.
