Construction Industry Can Now Integrate BIM Faster with SGS
SGS has launched a new service to help the construction industry adopt and manage the revolutionary new Building Information Modelling (BIM) platform.
The company has developed the BIM Project Management service to help the industry manage the flow and quality of information in the BIM process, in addition to general project management duties, such as cost, schedule and communications management. As an emerging technical tool – one that is heralded as the next generation of computer aided design and construction after 2D CAD drawing – design and construction teams are still in the process of integrating and implementing the technology into everyday practice.
Managing the quality of the BIM process is becoming increasingly vital to any construction project. However, if used without the necessary planning or experience, BIM implementation can cause as many complications as the problems it solves. As a result, due to the fact that the construction industry prides itself on experience and hands-on technical ability, adoption of the new innovation is slow compared to other industries. That is why SGS now offers design and construction teams practical BIM project management, implementation strategy and transitional training.
The new BIM Project Management service from SGS provides the construction industry with the proper methodology and protocol for managing the BIM process. This means that clients will now be able to adopt the BIM platform and benefit from a range of project improvements, such as increased construction quality and building performance, reduced construction costs and waste, in addition to mitigating project risks and delays.
With its dedicated BIM team, unrivalled construction experience and building simulation expertise, SGS also offers a supporting team of professional engineers verifying the accuracy of BIM output and a complete range of dedicate services, including:
- Construction BIM Project Management – building construction life-cycle management (including 4D project schedule simulation, systems clash detection, BIM model verification and BIM model construction for MEP)
- BIM Education Services – construction management or building environmental simulation
- Building Environmental Simulation – including Building Energy Modeling (BEM), Computation Fluid Dynamics Simulation (CFD), daylight and envelope shading simulation, lighting simulation and rendering
What Is BIM?
BIM is a next-generation digital platform that can be used to create and represent the physical and functional characteristics of infrastructure and buildings. Often, BIM is used to produce 3D models, however BIM tools also serve to aid design and construction decisions throughout the construction life cycle. BIM is essentially a tool for everyone – from architect and general contractor to each design team for individual systems, including mechanical, electrical, plumbing and even facility management. It is revolutionary in that anyone can write a plugin for the BIM platform that can provide a specific task or service.
