A note about COVID-19: At ENGworks, the health and well-being of our employees, clients, families and communities is our top priority. Thankfully, the entire ENG team is in good health and committed to maintaining “business-as-usual”. We’ve transitioned our entire team to work from home with the right tools to be fully operational and still give you the best experience. Be safe and anything you may need, please let us know.
Complex site logistics and installation phasing are some of many potential applications for visualization. Graphic representations, created to understand time-based processes, helps foresee conflicts and study potential solutions. 4D adds the time factor of the construction schedule to the 3D model. We can directly link each activity of a Gantt chart (generated in project management software such as Primavera or Microsoft Project) to the BIM.
These animated models represent the planned construction sequence set against time. The main purpose of a construction phasing simulation is to provide a tool that will help the construction team visualize logistical issues or inefficiencies. The simulation exposes details such as out-of-sequence work, scheduling conflicts between multiple trades, “what if” scenarios, and macro-level construction phasing strategies – all in order to achieve the optimization of the construction schedule.
What is BIM? What are some of the uses of BIM? And the benefits? Here we respond to these and more questions…
