RICS, BIM4SME and Graitec Recognise BIM Achievements.

RICS, BIM4SME and Graitec Recognise BIM Achievements.
Building Information Modelling, better known as BIM, has dramatically changed the way medium and large-scale building projects are developed. BIM gives constructors the ability to collaborate and coherently assemble a complex model rather than independent drawings, massively improving accuracy in estimations, lowering costs, reducing errors and saving valuable time. RICS are proud to be working in...

It's Just a Phase You're Going Through

It's Just a Phase You're Going Through
Many projects, such as renovations, proceed in phases, each representing a distinct time-period in the life of the project e.g. existing, temporary works, demolition and new construction. Another way to think of them is as milestones within the project life. They can represent specific time periods themselves e.g. week 1, week 2, week 3 of construction, or the status of the project at&nb...

Keeping it Low - Interference Checking in Revit

Keeping it Low - Interference Checking in Revit
Checking for clashes in any construction project is a must and will hopefully highlight any issues way before they become a costly amendment onsite. When working on a collaborative design project a regular coordination review is a necessary part of the process. Software packages like Navisworks would be used to produce a federated 3D model and the Clash Detective would be utilised to highligh...

Game, Set and Matchline?

Game, Set and Matchline?
You can’t fit a 100m building plan onto an A3 sheet at 1:100, just like you can’t fit an elephant in a fridge, no matter if there are footprints in the butter! You could use a bigger title sheet, change the scale to 1:200 or design a smaller building. But sometimes you need show a plan at a certain scale and on a certain sheet size. And so, here’s the workflow in Revit which allows you to do just ...

Use the Right Glue for Better Quality.

Use the Right Glue for Better Quality.
I have discussed in past blogs about Quality and construction and the importance of reducing risk during the build process. I used BIM 360 Field to demonstrate this. This time I would like to discuss the use of BIM 360 Glue as part of the Quality process. When we look at BIM 360 Glue we tend to place its functionality in the pre-construction phase. We think about clash avoidance and model coordina...

Configuring IFC Export tool from the iConstruct ‘add in’ tool in Navisworks

Configuring IFC Export tool from the iConstruct ‘add in’ tool in Navisworks
I have previously written about how quickly and easily we can get an IFC file out of Navisworks using the iConstruct Smart IFC Export. In this paper, I will go in to more detail of how we can configure the IFC export tool so as well as exporting model geometry it includes item properties and the type of object from the Navisworks BIM model to be identified in other CAD packages. What are the benef...

BIM 360 Docs and BIM 360 Field are closer than you think!

BIM 360 Docs and BIM 360 Field are closer than you think!
It’s one of the most frequently asked questions after discussing BIM 360 with customers: ‘When will BIM 360 Docs link to BIM 360 Field’? There is no real answer to that. It may be on the Autodesk roadmap for the future, but pinpointing a date isn’t on the cards. However, there is a workflow that allows us to use both simultaneously on an iPad. By having both Autodesk BIM 360 apps (BIM 360 Docs an...
