4D and 5D

Architects utilize BIM to create three dimensional spaces and buildings. BIM has the potential to enhance the design team’s visualization of a project as well as improve the design team’s coordination of a project. It has been shown that BIM has the ability to aid the contractor’s efforts to manage acceleration, avoid delays and mitigate disruptions.

Better coordinated 2D drawings can potentially now be extracted from BIM models. Changes to three dimensional models during the design process are automatically updated in extracted 2D drawings. Historically, 2D drawings were manually checked for coordination and accuracy. A quality control specialist spent multiple days reviewing two dimensional drawings attempting to make sure the architecture and engineering components blended properly into an integrated design. Available BIM software includes programs for semi-automated quality control. When properly utilized, these programs perform coordination checks called “clash detection”. Working in 3D, designers have the potential to identify conflicts between and amongst the building systems that might not be readily identified on 2D drawings. When properly utilized, the clash detection can eliminate serious constructability issues before work has begun onsite. This can mitigate risk by providing greater accuracy and ensuring that building systems fit in the locations shown on the drawings. Properly executed clash detection has the potential to benefit the designer, contractor and owner. It can reduce requests for information (RFIs) and change orders thereby helping to keep the project on schedule.

BUILDING INFORMATION

"An intelligent, model-based process that provides insight for creating and managing building and infrastructure projects faster, more economically, and with lesser environmental impact."
BIM Introduction

BIM is multi-dimensional

BIM is a transition from 2D CAD based design to 3D model based workflows. But BIM is not just about 3D models. The additional dimensions, that of time (4D BIM) and cost (5D BIM) help take the project to the next level. Not only can BIM be used as a visual planning tool but the entire project management and cost control can be undertaken with the use of a BIM model.
While the 4th and 5th dimensions are crucial during the construction phase, the as-built information and facility data can be incorporated into the model to make it a 6D one. The BIM can therefore act as a single source of truth for the project, delivering value throughout the entire life cycle.
It is important to add building information so that 6D models can be achieved. At Techture we ensure that we follow the global modelling standards right from the inception of the project, keeping the final objectives in mind.

2D Drawings

Instead of having to work on 2D CAD, drawings and construction documents become a deliverable from 3D models.

3D Models

The entire project revolves around accurate, information rich 3D models, built virtually and shared with all stakeholders.

4D Time Schedule

To keep the project on track, it is important to schedule all construction activities and then link it to the 3D model.

5D Cost Analysis

Costing and budgeting information can be seamlessly extracted through the model to take all financial decisions in a smart way.

6D Facility Management

Costing and budgeting information can be seamlessly extracted through the model to take all financial decisions in a smart way.
