Automated BIM management in large construction projects saves 100s hrs for BIM Managers and helps avoid costly delays
Large construction projects involve many organisations each of which are responsible for different aspects of design and engineering.
Programmes can take many years to complete requiring all aspects to progress from conceptual design through to technical design and, in most cases, meeting BIM level 2+.
Periodic and stage-gate reviews of the status of the build via the BIM model are key to project success – cost, quality and time.
Construction companies and design authorities spend considerable time and effort in understanding how the BIM model has changed between reviews and the maturity of elements of the BIM model.
This ‘work about work’ is the responsibility of the BIM Manager and Programme Management team.
High time commit is driven by scale –
per-person, per-second created in 2020
per week finding documents and files
of our time spent on work coordination
KADlytics’ tools automatically measure and report on the amount and type of work performed on the BIM model since the last review, by monitoring asset creation and modification.
Once measured, our tools also automatically assess the compliance and maturity of each element of the BIM model against RIBA stage gates, allowing managers to measure and monitor progress.
This data is processed and packaged into customisable visual dashboards and reports representing the state of the build.
Removing the need to manually search enables a productivity step-change for BIM managers (saving 100s hours of error prone compliance checks) and an evidence-base for stage-gate and review meetings, as well as performance management of suppliers both within and across projects.
During later stages of the programme, changes to the BIM model can be automatically reported and included in regular reporting, and the state of the build can be used to assess compliance with engineering change processes.
