BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING (BIM)
Building Information Modelling (BIM)
Enprode uses BIM in projects to increase design efficiency, provide a platform to share design data and support more effective project management.
Benefits of BIM include:
2) Improves productivity.
3) Adds value by reducing conflicts and changes during construction.
4) Interference clash detection avoids rework.
5) Provides comprehensive 3D design from overview to incremental reduction details.
Building Information (BIM) incorporates detailed definitions, specifications and construction process as follows:
3D BIM3D BIM is three-dimensional modeling of a project using 2D drawings or sometimes, 3D models supplied by manufacturers.
Manufacturer 3D models, if in different format, are compiled in IFC format in Enprode’s Aconex software to enable a common format for Enprode 3D design. Equipment and material parameters are defined in the 3D models.
4D BIM refers to the intelligent linking of individual 3D components or assemblies with schedule (time) related information.
The 4D includes a fourth dimension of time.
4D models enable stakeholders in a construction project, to visualize the entire duration of a series of events and display the progress of construction activities through this duration.
This is a very powerful tool to improve project management and delivery of construction projects.
4D enables a sequence of events to be depicted visually on a time line populated by a 3D model (augmenting traditional Gantt charts and Critical Path (CPM) schedules).
Work schedules and 3D modeling are integrated by Navisworks Manage software to create the simulation.
