  • Kings cross designed through BIM ?
  • Kings Cross designed by wizards, BIM enables us to go beyond …
  • Complex buildings – how did we communicate this in 2D and schedules? Why we have so many errors?
  • Fastes rate of construction – hasn’ t been beaten – WHY?
  • 80 years later – whats the difference, why is the rate of construction so much slower, more costly?
  • Root cause of all construction errors?
  • Understanding lean helps us understand BIM
  • Can we say this for construction – Honda 6 sigma = 99.8% Construction 65% ?
  • Explain level one, two and three
  • Concept that the thought process when building a model should be the same as if you were building it physically in the field. When we started drywall modeling, we quickly realized that having a young tech savvy engineer fresh out of school modeling drywall wasn’t adding much value to the field. Sure we built a wall that is clash free, but it wasn’t necessarily detailed in the way that is more efficient to be built. By brining in field foremen to learn how to model and bring their field experience into the model, we drove a10-15% increase in field efficiency.
  • Actual v design – does it matter?
  • Planning and avoiding clashes and problems before getting to site
  • Easy take offs, easy construction, easy material ordering, easy checking
  • All tools, either for authoring or co-ordination
  • People 90%
  • So the PAS is out – what the government
  • Our simplified version Left 2d CAD – very much same workflows and methods as the traditional hand drawn world with a few layering and deletion benefits. I've spared you the old slide of the cut finger Level 1 BIM – is lonely BIM – using all the benefits of co-ordinated 3d CAD modelling but independently of others. The deliverables are the same 2d drawings and schedules but de-risked through co-ordination of plans sections and elevations and to some extend more efficient. Level 2 BIM – is collaborative BIM – the same as level 1 but more data rich and is defined by co-ordination between disciplines. There is also a new deliverable – COBie – see later. Level 3 BIM is Integrated BIM where the deliverable becomes the model itself and is utilised throughout the life of the building. At present Level 3 BIM is a pipedream, it is not even defined properly. Why the Government as mandated level 2 as being just right
  • To help you on the journey to Level 2. Level 0 Paper based work gradually moving towards 2D CAD. E-mail came along. Took us 15 years to catch up with these new techniques . 95% of users used 2D CAD with little or no co-ordination benefit. Insular. Wasted resource in creating and re-creating information. Level 1 Level 1 saw the emergence of standards such as BS, CPIC and Avanti. Better information structure could be ased on these standardsand had the potential to remove error and reduce waste.
  • One of the most powerful use is the virtual builds prior to real builds, and the ability for future end users to shape the build and facility. Aloft hotels here is a good case study.
  • For architecture, visualisation of yet to be built projects, linking AR to BIM …
  • For construction, visual search of construction performance, (waste, co2, safety, progress) For fm, mashing service routes onto webcam for safety and avoiding clashes
