Case Studies

Luxury Villas, Dubai



Full multidisciplinary BIM models have been created for the architectural, structural and MEP design on both projects, using the Revit suite of BIM software. Navisworks was used to run clash checks on the models and highlighted potential errors in the early design stages that saved time and money later in the project. Navisworks was also used to walk through the buildings, helping the designers visualise the buildings to produce more efficient designs.
The use of BIM greatly enhanced the ease of collaboration and communication of ideas, not only between the different design disciplines but also across geographical boundaries, since the project Architects were based in South Africa.
The BIM models were exported into 3Ds Max to create high quality visualisations, thus providing the client with an accurate impression of how the finished projects would look.
