The introduction of BIM technology in our work implies the tackling of the complete life cycle of a building, from its inception at the very start until its construction.
This technology allows us to closely coordinate all the elements and areas covered in our scope of work, minimizing the risk of error in our execution and making our work more efficient.
To accomplish this objective, we work with design software incorporating all the tasks to be conducted:
- Revit is a software that allows design supported by “intelligent” and tridimensional objects, associated between them to coordinate themselves automatically when changes are undergone. They do so through a relational database that manages and coordinates the necessary information for the modelling of the architectural design, the construction and the engineering works of a building, including all the relevant specialties.
- Designing all the piping systems using AutoCAD Plant 3D is our best option, as it possesses the essential basic geometry elements to represent valves and other piping accessories. These elements are not scaled, but are designed to be in their actual size, an important fact that comes into play when piping works intersect with other engineering areas, such as structures, as it will provide us with real data when calculating interferences.
The project reviewing software Navisworks combines the design data created in Revit and AutoCAD in order to obtain a complete view of the project, which allows us to holistically verify the models and integrated data with the interested parties which in turn allows for a better control of the project results
