If you are still one of those who believe that BIM is a software or a very advanced or technological tool that is beyond the scope of your installer or construction project, we have a news for you; it is not! It is totally accessible, as well as profitable for your company.
BIM, Building Information Modeling, is a working methodology for the creation and management of a construction project, which is from programs such as Revit®, ArchiCAD® or AllPlan®. Allows you to create digital design simulations, incorporating 4D and 5D tools with which you can have real-time data about the duration and costs of materials and structures necessary for your installation. In this way, you can manage information intelligently throughout the life cycle of a project.
Companies in the sector that have already switched to BIM estimate up to 50% of savings in money in the design phase of the project, 30% in the construction phase of the work and up to 20% in logistics concepts. All of the above is due to the minimization of errors that BIM allows before, during and after the project, such as collisions or unnecessary material expenses. This is thanks to the initial construction of a 3D digital model with which you can foresee any incident.
In turn, the collaborative environment of BIM will allow you to have optimal communication between the builders, manufacturers, architects and civil engineers of your project, creating a collaborative network that will increase productivity and coordination between departments.
Walraven offers a comprehensive advisory service with a specialized technical team that will help you implement BIM in your company for modelling the architecture, engineering and construction of your projects. For this, we use Revit®, the best option in the software when designing your project, from its conceptualization to the planimetry of its construction.
But that is not all! The permanent update of your project in Revit® will allow you to consult and extract information from the installation using as-built maps. In this way, you will be able to know from the type of pipes and their final route to the model of installed air conditioning machines. With the monitoring of this data, the maintenance of a building during its useful life and its daily management will be easier than you imagine.
You can find all our families in Revit® downloadable files in the Walraven BIM Library, the leading BIM platform worldwide. Our specialized library offers information on parameterized product families, with detailed geometry and completeness of all our support solutions for installations of HVCA, plumbing or electricity.
In Walraven, you will find a free modelling service for specific assemblies, with which we respond to complete support solutions for MEP BIM projects with a LOD400. Likewise, we offer support in the creation of .rfa files and the introduction of said product families in the installations project.
Realizing your projects in BIM hand in hand with Walraven, you will always obtain the optimal precision in the measurements of your project, as well as a great reduction in costs and time. What are you waiting for to move to BIM?
