The merged models underwent automatic checks on a weekly basis to detect duplicates, collisions, missing object codes, etc. As the BIM coordinator on the project, it was essential to continually find and highlight problems so that they could be addressed early in the process, but also to ensure that information from the models could be relied upon.
Based on projected models and site information, a model was generated to track items that had been produced, dispatched to site, and assembled – which was greatly appreciated by Hent, as it minimised the risk of errors and rework during the construction phase.
Our digital strategy for Sara Cultural Centre has been applied in everything from the day-to-day design to; sustainability assessments, coordination meetings, user dialogue with the client, quantifying, VR sessions, Augmented Reality, visualisation and review. With easily available information in the models that can be trusted, many additional values can be realised.
