The BIM Construction Process
Beyond the design phase, BIM can hugely improve the efficiency of the construction process itself. Recon’s expertise in site scanning and BIM software solutions make us ideally suited to create BIM models that improve the construction process at every stage.
The clear and more visually detailed 3D designs of BIM models make the interpretation of building plans easier. But just as BIM software models a building spatially and detects clashes in design, it can also be used to model construction phases to check for optimal processes and consistency. The run on effects of this increased organisation and predictability include:
Using a FARO 3D laser scanner, it is also possible to obtain scans of construction projects in progress and map these against BIM building plans, ensuring that everything is going to plan once building has begun.
Another powerful benefit of a BIM construction approach is the increased ability to use prefabricated materials. Because BIM makes much more complex and precise construction scheduling possible, more pre-assembled building materials can be used, increasing both productivity and building quality.
With expertise in BIM scanning and modelling, Recon offers BIM services that can be tailored to construction projects of all kinds. As New Zealand’s most advanced survey specialists, Recon is able to accurately capture building sites regardless of the construction stage. We can then use this data to create models which address the most important aspects of an individual construction project, whether they are design or process related, enabling stakeholders to make effective, data-driven decisions. Our skilled software team can create BIM models for use in a range of design suites.
