  • BIM processes for the medium sized "Managing Architect" Practice! Building Information Modelling Summit 2013 | 27 August 2013
  • Agenda •  Fulton Trotter & BIM •  Working with Tier 2 Contractors •  What will the future hold?
  • Nathan Hildebrandt •  Associate •  Project Architect •  Manage architectural team •  11 years experience using BIM software ‘ArchiCAD’ •  OpenBIM advocate •  Graphisoft Development Panel •  ArchiCAD Beta Tester •  Member of BuildingSMART •  BrisBIM Committee Member
  • Challenges with BIM •  Significant shift in information creation •  Implementation needs to be staged •  Staff need to know how a building is built •  BIM is still in its infancy •  Standards are not in place •  Leading to confusion from clients
  • Challenges with BIM •  New Processes need to be developed •  Costly if you head up dry gullies
  • Why Fulton Trotter embrace BIM MacKillop Catholic College Library | Warnervale NSW | 2004 •  Why embark on BIM unless you benefit from it •  FTA Clients don’t require BIM •  FTA are embracing BIM as a process •  Efficiencies – quicker production •  Quality – less variations •  More time for design •  Future delivery process for all construction projects
  • Fulton Trotter’s BIM Journey 2003-2010 1993-2002 >1993 2011 2007–HinklerProject 2011<
  • Incorrect use of BIM Software taken from Graphisoft ArchiCAD 8.1 Project Framework 2004
  • Case Studies •  Hinkler Hall of Aviation – 3d Structural Steel Drawings •  Wongaburra – Services Modelling •  Tamborine Mountain College – Mobile Technology •  Faith Lutheran College – Pilot full coordinated tender model
  • Hinkler Hall of Aviation •  Completed in 2007 •  Complex Structural Steel Building •  Simple Architectural Cladding Shell
  • Hinkler Hall of Aviation 3D Shop Drawings •  3D Structural Steel Shop drawings produced in Tekla. •  Quick and easy review process •  Model reviewed outside of ArchiCAD •  1800 shop drawings produced but not necessary to review in as much detail.
  • Hinkler Hall of Aviation 3D Steel Shop Drawing Feedback
  • Hinkler Hall of Aviation •  Real benefits in the process. •  Benefits even greater today with Clash Detection Software.
  • Wongaburra •  Upgrade of Existing Aged Care Facilities •  Conversion of Undercroft Space into Administration Facilities •  Service Consultants delivering typical 2D documentation
  • Wongaburra •  2530 Floor to underside of slab •  Habitable Space required to be obtained •  Modelling the only answer
  • Wongaburra
  • Wongaburra •  Modeling on its own wouldn’t have achieved the outcome. •  Communication key to success of installation
  • Tamborine Mountain College •  Secondary School Library and Teaching Spaces •  500sqm •  Consultants providing 2D information / documentation
  • Tamborine Mountain College Communicating with a Virtual Model •  Already used as a tool for •  Design Reviews •  Consultants •  Client Sign Off on Design •  Architect review on Site •  Pilot project with Contractor. •  Issued for trialling on Site.
  • Tamborine Mountain College
  • Tamborine Mountain College •  Challenge getting Contractor to use technology on site. •  Provides a accompanying piece of information to drawings and specification. •  Development of software will transform the Construction Industry.
  • Faith Lutheran College •  Secondary Library •  500sqm
  • Faith Lutheran College •  Pilot Project for fully coordinated Consultant Team Model •  Creation of workflows for multi-platform team Workflow
  • Faith Lutheran College
  • Faith Lutheran College •  Cost $10k timecost to test and develop workflows. Now in place a good investment. •  Delivered the project with -0.3% in Latent, Authority, Documentation Variations. Client Variations 1.4% •  Contractor didn’t embrace technology or 3D shop drawings •  Had Contractor engaged in process would they benefit?
  • The Future – where are we heading •  Everything is modelled •  All notation automated, derived straight from the model •  Specification & Schedules generated directly from the model •  Model checking software will perform majority of QA tasks •  Developing process of communication with our QS •  Developing processes with our builders so they benefit
  • Working with Tier 2 Contractors •  Uptake of BIM in Tier 2 is very limited •  Working with regular Contractors to show benefits of adapting to technology •  Challenge is without standard deliverables from Clients process development now could be a significant dry gully •  Sub Contractors are smaller and investment to great?
  • How will the industry adapt •  Question roles of Professional Consultants in the future! •  Where will everyone fit it? •  How do you adapt your business and remain relevant?
  • Road to Standard Deliverables •  BuildingSMART are working along with a number of other NFP organisations to create Guidelines. •  Boost the uptake, clearer ideas of deliverables. •  Clients can ask for an reasonable outcome and Project Team will know what is needed to achieve it.
