Create clash free Architectural, Structural & MEP BIM Models with LOD 300 for a new Eye hospital Building project in Egypt.
Architects: Hi-Tech Outsourcing Services
Software used: Revit
- Input files received in form of PDF were not of the best quality. Several images and details were blurred & unclear.
- Level of detailing required was high; this made the files heavy and difficult to manage.
- There were numerous clashes in the models that had to be detected and reported.
The project required development of intelligent BIM with LOD 300 from PDF files for a National Eye Hospital in Egypt. A team of modelers and BIM experts was deployed to execute this project of a complex nature.
Project commenced with detailed examination of PDF files received as input.
- These PDF files were used to convert project data into intelligent BIM.
- BIM for architectural, structural and MEP disciplines were developed using Revit.
- Models were examined for clashes. A lot of clashes were detected and reported for mitigation.
- Once the clashes were resolved, the models were iterated and a clash free BIM was developed.
- Further the models were developed with quantity take offs and project completion schedules, a comprehensive approach was adopted to implement higher collaboration in the project.
- Prime emphasis was given towards auditing and improvisation to ensure that the model was as per international quality standards.
- The models underwent a multilayered quality check before they were handed over to the client.
- The project was completed within 45 days, and at the end of this time frame, all the clashes were resolved.
- If these clashes had been left undetected, this would have led to huge losses at the time of actual construction.
- BIM based, material take-offs & project completion schedules helped client streamline the processes and hence reduce the overall cost and time for construction.
