Well Coordinated BIM Models with LOD 300 for Eye Hospital Building

 

Project Objective

Create clash free Architectural, Structural & MEP BIM Models with LOD 300 for a new Eye hospital Building project in Egypt.

Industry: Construction

Location: Egypt

Architects: Hi-Tech Outsourcing Services

Software used: Revit

Challenges:

  • 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.

Engineering Solution

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.

Benefits

  1. The project was completed within 45 days, and at the end of this time frame, all the clashes were resolved.
  2. If these clashes had been left undetected, this would have led to huge losses at the time of actual construction.
  3. BIM based, material take-offs & project completion schedules helped client streamline the processes and hence reduce the overall cost and time for construction.
