Our project programs provide our clients with a clear way forward for the construction of a project, assisting in understanding various project complexities, construction methodologies and the identification of potential risks and their mitigation. We help our Clients understand how long a project will take to build and how to get there.
BIMgrafX construction programming, planning and scheduling services are provided by our programmers and planners with extensive experience over a wide range of different projects and Client types. Our construction programming and planning services can be utilised from the project feasibility phase, tender phase and through to a project’s completion. This includes design, documentation, approvals, and procurement, as well as on-site construction and commissioning.
In the traditional design process, plans and specifications created by the design teams did not impact the estimates created by the Quantity estimation teams because the information relevant to an estimate was just an overlay and not linked to the graphical representation. The surveyors would simply extract information from the documents passed on by the design team which would best suit their estimation requirements. But, in such a workflow, whenever there are any changes, it is impossible to keep track the differences between the drawings and estimates. Not to mention the inaccuracies in such a manual way of calculation.
However, in BIM the point of gathering and managing information begins right from the design model phase. The development of a 3D model is accompanied with the graphical representation of data-rich objects, the data being the product of the simultaneous Quantity Estimation. Each of these inserted objects are available in the future for the purpose of extracting relevant information by different project stakeholders. The nature of BIM compels us to manage information through all phases of a project.
The firm’s QS specialists are an integral part of the design and project management team on projects of all sizes and levels of complexity.
Being a leading CAD & BIM service provider with core competency in BIM-based drafting we have been offering Construction Documentation services to the AEC industry since the last decade. The construction documentation service we offer cater to the need of clients ranging from project owners to contractors and subcontractors.
Given the multi-faceted nature of construction, integration is the name of the game. And who you choose to have on your team will be crucial to its success. Our team have the proven expertise and ability to provide seamless integration solutions for your construction program. We’ll collaborate with you to tackle the day-to-day responsibilities, while being mindful of the bigger picture.
Our construction program management teams work closely with owners, architects, engineers, and other construction consultants to provide seamless integration between all stages of the construction process. From concept or pre-construction to project closeout, BIMgrafX construction and engineering team provide proactive problem solving solutions for any construction program.
By assigning individuals with specialized project-specific knowledge, BIMgrafX program management consultants serve as an integral part of each project team. BIMgrafX works hard to ensure that projects come in on time and within budget.
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.
Construction Operations Building Information Exchange or COBie is the newest and the next-gen service that has completely changed the way of thinking and constructing the building in a systematic and proper way. In COBie the data is received in a standard data format that is used in the gathering of the information during its level of design and construction phases. This is a digital storage of the information which is subsequently transferred to the operations and maintenance (O&M) team during facility management.
COBie is the process that assists and helps in capturing and storing the important data of the project and that too includes the point of origin. For a successful implementation of COBie service, the requirement is to have proper product data sheets, a list of the types of equipment, a list of spare parts, details of warranties and guarantees, etc and many other data. This set of information plays a vital role as it supports the operational, managerial, and asset management once assets are derived in the service.
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.
This information is available to the user through a customized proprietary web-based environment, ensuring the owner has global accessibility. The Owner or Facility Manager will have full access to a simple yet powerful virtual building model containing relevant information to manage property, building systems, and components for the life of the facility.
