Building Information Modelling is becoming increasingly vital for modern construction projects. Not only does it provide a digital representation of a building project, it also facilitates greater levels of collaboration and interoperability within the design environment
At Prompt, we provide building information modelling services (or BIM services as they commonly known) using Autodesk Revit. Autodesk Revit is a multidirectional, database-controlled application which allows changes in one view/area to be replicated automatically in all other views/areas where the changed item appears (including layouts, elevations, schedules or the 3D model itself).
By using Autodesk Revit Architecture, Revit MEP and Revit Structure, we are able to create pre-construction planning design data for diverse projects with the same family of software. This level of interoperability provides obvious time and cost benefits but also allows the entire project team to view the impact of their individual designs on those of others and to resolve the conflicts based on this knowledge.
As part of our BIM service we are able to maintain all elements of a BIM model within our Integrated Project Delivery approach or provide a BIM service to one party involved in a BIM project but doesn’t have the expertise for BIM model creation and management. In addition to 3D parametric modelling, we provide 4D (time schedule) and 5D (cost) BIM services to our clients.
We Currently use 3D BIM Modelling Application for the following Project & Customer Types:
BIM Models from Point Cloud & Laser Surveys – We create 3D architectural models from laser survey data. We already work with a number of developers, contractors and retailers to create accurate models of existing sites. Such point cloud BIM models include all current building elements, such as beams, columns, and internal walls, among others. As well as creation of the 3D model in Revit from point cloud data, we model any building alterations and changes from architectural and structural drawings, such as false ceiling and additional structural elements.
BIM for Homebuilders – We create construction drawing sets directly from BIM models created for each house as a part of our residential BIM modelling services. As well as accurate schedules, a full set of drawings required by construction teams is created from the Revit BIM models.
BIM for Architects – We create models during the design development, tender and construction stages of architectural design projects. As well as creation of clash free models with accurate building materials, we create detailed construction schedules from the models.
BIM for MEP Contractors and Designers – Having already created 3D MEP (M&E) coordinated models for a number of years with non-BIM application, we have migrated to Revit BIM software seamlessly, providing customers with MEP (M&E) BIM models, complete with detailed schedules and manufacturing information.
