Video: BIM Solutions for Construction Layout

How can you extend the benefits of BIM to the jobsite for construction layout? With the BIM Field Trip by Leica Geosystems, you can add BIM layout points to the model and hand it off to the field for use with total stations, multistations and 3D laser measuring devices to create a “paint-by-numbers” installation, which results in fewer errors and changes in the field and a higher level of predictability.

Video: BIM Solutions for As-Built Data Capture

A typical renovation or retrofit project relies on existing as-built drawings, which are often outdated and incorrect. Unfortunately, these inaccuracies might not be found until the construction phase of a project, where unexpected changes have the potential to ruin both the budget and schedule. When accurate as-built data in the form of cloud points or discrete points is captured and used as a basis for planning construction in a CAD or BIM environment, it provides the assurance that the model is correct as designed.

Video: BIM Solutions for Quality Assurance

For general contractors, keeping projects on time and on budget requires closely monitoring the quality and accuracy of the work performed by subcontractors. By measuring the quality of construction throughout the project with total stations, multistations or laser distance meters, and bringing this information back into the model, any conflicts or potential problems can be predicted before they occur, thereby preventing rework and waste.

Not to be trite, but this is a game changer.

BIM has revolutionized construction industry communication. Data, specifically digital data, is the new operating language for architects, structural engineers, general contractors and the constructions trades.

I never imagined the BIM transformation would come this far, this fast.  Continue reading…
