Effectively identifying and resolving conflicts or clashes in a 3D model or design to prevent collisions, overlaps, or interferences, which ensures the accuracy and integrity of the overall project. Within the project model, we identify where a clash will occur between each service, providing the opportunity to effectively resolve each clash before the project is built on-site. Traditionally these mistakes are not discovered until on-site, resulting in higher costs and a negative impact on your schedule. By seeing the clashes in the office before construction, we can save clients costly project blowouts, lost time, and material waste, thus providing higher construction productivity.
MEP coordination is an integral part of the construction process that combines mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems to create a well-functioning, efficient, cost-effective, and safe building. By resolving conflicts, optimising space, and promoting collaboration, MEP coordination contributes to your construction project’s successful completion.
BIM software for designing, modelling, and documenting buildings and structures in a collaborative and parametric environment. Revit enables the creation of 3D models with intelligent elements, allowing for accurate design visualisation, analysis, and coordination throughout the project lifecycle. Revit provides our clients with significant benefits in terms of time reduction and mistakes during the design and construction process.
The structured framework was established to coordinate all aspects of the project and bring all information into a streamlined workflow, defining the roles, responsibilities, communication channels, and collaboration tools for each team member, facilitating efficient progress, timely decision-making, and successful project completion. Ensuring that tasks are allocated efficiently promotes effective communication among stakeholders. It enables smooth coordination to promptly address challenges, leading to a more streamlined and successful project outcome for our client.
A structured and optimised sequence of steps and tasks that Draftech specifically developed is used for defining roles to establish the flow of project information and resources. Our effective workflow will optimise efficiency and improve productivity, reducing repetitive tasks and costs, and contributing to streamlined processes and successful project outcomes for our clients.
Our team specializes in strategically developing and implementing BIM Management Plans, BIM Execution Plans, and BIMMEPAus processes, protocols, and standards. Our approach outlines how BIM will be utilised throughout the project lifecycle, resulting in consistent data management and improved coordination. Our goal is to help you achieve higher quality, more cost-effective, and more sustainable project outcomes.
Constructions, Operations, Building, Information Exchange is a data format used for extracting and delivering accurate and organised BIM asset data to owners and Facility Managers. The data format allows easy integration with Facility Management Systems, enabling efficient maintenance and operation of the building.
A comprehensive planning, data management platform, and BIM collaboration tool that allows all stakeholders to capture, organise, and manage project information throughout the building’s lifecycle. This includes room information, finishes, equipment, and other building elements. dRofus facilitates data exchange, supports decision-making processes, and enhances collaboration among the various project stakeholders.
The process of extracting data from architectural and engineering drawings, specifications, and other project documentation to calculate and itemise a detailed list of materials, components, and resources required for any construction project. Effective cost estimation, budgeting, and procurement planning rely heavily on quantity take-offs. These take-offs provide precise information about the necessary quantities of materials such as concrete, steel, equipment, and other essential items for successful project execution. It’s critical factor in keeping timelines and budgets under control.
Karl and the team are very professional and have a vast knowledge of BIM coordination.
