As-built documents are of vital importance to any project; however often those plans are only generated after the project is completed. As a result, many small changers or deviations from Construction Documents go unnoticed or are misinterpreted. Even worse, often as-built drawings are never created, leaving Construction Drawings the only source of documentation.
When engaged as monitoring and progress auditing team, BIMgrafX can provide accurate and complete as-built drawings with all changes made on site and not in accordance with the design. Handling and keeping all construction-related information in one BIM model allows us for unlimited flexibility for entering and changing even the smallest deviations from construction documents.
Advantages of having As-built 6D BIM models include capturing alterations from construction documents in an easily-accessible manner, being a source for future building maintenance and procurement planning and providing a snapshot of existing design.
Important and relevant information (drawings, manuals, schedules, specifications and inventory) are stored in a comprehensive 6D BIM model, created especially for purposes of Asset Management.
Whenever important changes to the building occur (such as building systems upgrade), our designers make the changes to the model accordingly, keeping everything up-to-date and making sure our clients never miss a task or fail to handle procurement.
COBie stands for the Construction Operations Building Information Exchange, and it is an international standard that relates to the exchange of building information. It is most commonly used in the product data handover from the construction team to the operations team.
BIMgrafX understands that the potential of BIM goes beyond that of constructing buildings and extends over to address facility management and operations throughout the entire life cycle of the facility. The seamless integration of BIM-FM results in significant reduction of the operating costs over the life time of the facility.
