BIM is a work process in which intelligent 3D models and the related data help teams to cooperate and understand their projects in unprecedented ways. It is about efficient cooperation and informed decisions.
BIM is used to plan, design, construct, operate and maintain diverse physical structures, such as buildings, communication utilities like water, electricity, gas infrastructure like roads, bridges, ports, tunnels, etc.
We use 3D scanning and phtotgrammetry as a basis to deliver high quality digital models for your architects, landscape architects, surveyors, civil, structural and building services engineers and other decision makers to make better predictions on costs, timelines and logistics of your project.
Building information modeling extends beyond 3D, augmenting the three primary spatial dimensions (width, height and depth) with time as the fourth dimension (4D) and cost as the fifth (5D). BIM therefore covers more than just geometry. It also covers spatial relationships, delivery and work scheduling, budgeting, light analysis, geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components (for example, manufacturers' details) etc. Understanding this, we help you integrate spatial data with data you already have to help you make more informed decisions.
BIM is not an island.
ERP systems (Enterprise Resource Planning) are a mature technology whose use is widespread in many industries, including Construction. Although ERP origins are linked to the planning of manufacturing processes encompassing both Materials Requirement Planning and Manufacturing Resource Planning systems, its great success is due to the integration of accounting, financial management and analysis modules to other administrative areas of a corporation as well as to production-related ones.
Data integration is part of the essences of BIM and ERP and from it both concepts derive much of their values.
We understand that integration between graphical and database systems will make their use for decision making more effective.
Behind both systems there is a unified database. For both cases, this database has a very complex structure. In ERP, typically a relational database is used and its tables form an intricate web of data relationships. Integrated data means, in the case of BIM, that all represented disciplines in the building model are internally consistent and can relate to each other in a consistent manner. A BIM model can represent very sophisticated relationships between their elements, going from simple 3D geometrical relationships (relative position in space) to more complex ones like definition, assignment, association, decomposition, connection, aggregation and constrainment. So a good BIM deliverable is much more than just 3D geometrical representation of a room segment.
Understanding not just technical aspects and delivering more intelligent models for our clients to integrate into their workflow and to the entire enterprise process is what we strive for.
We work closely with our clients to understand their process and information needs and to deliver accordingly.
*We provide our customers with smart solutions and BIM support for the renovation, refurbishment and maintenance of the built environment – the largest share of the AEC sector.
