Read Top Reasons for Adopting 4D BIM Services on construction projects in USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Sweden, and worldwide.
Adopting 4D BIM Services on construction projects is one of the most effective techniques for improving project & program management.
Construction Management is perhaps the most challenging and complex as compared to other construction activities. It involves external/internal stakeholder management, design coordination, risk management, cost management and construction law.
4D construction or 4D BIM services streamline the construction activities and allow project managers to take informed decisions in a collaborative yet interactive digital workspace. Successful 4D BIM implementation involves usage of multiple software with advanced collaborative tools. It is therefore advisable to have well learned and experienced BIM professionals on team with an expertise in software such as; Revit & Navisworks.
Understanding 4D BIM Scheduling & Simulation
4D BIM is the 4th dimension of ‘time’ added to a 3D Architectural or Engineering model. The time data is typically in the form of Gant Chart and project programs.
“4d bim services is the process of integrating timeline of construction activities to the 3d models for prioritising construction activities on site and managing potential risks associated with the design”
See below the process of implementing 4d scheduling & simulation during design development:
Step 1- Developing Architectural & Engineering models before 4D scheduling
Step 2- Exporting model in NWC format
Step 3 - Adding time related information for 4d scheduling
Step 4 - 4D Simulation for design development assessment
Which Software to use for 4D BIM Services?
Revit and Naviswoks are perhaps the most effective and widely used software for 4d scheduling services. With a wide range of applications, 4d bim services are quite commonly used for project and programme managers.
While Revit offers a great interface for developing 3d architectural, MEP and structural models. Navisworks provides a platform to assess the design risks and construction activities. Both software together, allow the construction professionals to effectively implement 4D BIM for eliminating potential risks for cost and time overruns.
4 Benefits of adopting 4D BIM Services on Construction Project
1- Providing Deeper Insight into Construction Activities
2- Better Site Planning through 4D BIM services
3- Controlling Construction Cost & Time overruns
4- Superior Program Management using 4d bim services
Programme managers can rely on 4d Scheduling for organising and revising their Gantt charts. Using advanced collaborative tools such as BIM 360, help project stakeholders to review the 4d BIM simulation in a shared workspace. Hence, allowing project stakeholders to share their suggestions and comments on the 4d bim model.
