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.
It is important to verify the consistency of the information contained within a Building Information Model (BIM). Failure to audit the Model will undoubtedly result in the output data being unreliable and producing false reports.
To obtain trustworthy outputs from BIMs (whether it is Construction Documents, Constructability Analysis, 3D Coordination, Bills of Materials, 4D Construction Sequencing, 5D Cost Estimations, or 6D Facility Management), these models must be constructed while respecting certain practices, standards, and Levels of Development (LOD) that serve such specific purposes. It often makes good sense to have an outside party validate any and all BIMs that have been developed at key points throughout a project.
With the vast experience that ENGworks holds (in relation to creating and validating BIMs), we can review designs to ensure that the proper level of detail, naming standards, and other design methods are properly documented. Our BIM validation will also serve to coach a design team on the improved use of the BIM software.
