  11. 11. 19/08/2013 11 BIM INITIATIVES IMPLEMENTED BY PROJECT STAKEHOLDERS BIM INITIATIVES IMPLEMENTED BY CLIENT & DESIGNTEAM CLIENT  Not contractual requirement  Encouraged by the Client DESIGN TEAM  Design and documentation in Revit  Well structured and detailed models  Level of coordination (LOD200)  Not all services were modelled  Specifications and schedules exported from Revit
  12. 12. 19/08/2013 12 USING ‘HOLLYWOOD’ BIM AT MUNH FLY-OVER MODEL BIM INITIATIVES IMPLEMENTED BY SUB-CONTRACTORS SUB-CONTRACTORS o Building Services and Structure trades took part in BIM process o Combination of software packages used o Consultants models utilised to move objects and coordinate services o Mechanical Subcontractor (Allstaff) acted as lead trade o Opportunity of the process established by Client and Design Team
  13. 13. 19/08/2013 13 BIM INITIATIVES IMPLEMENTED BY PROBUILD PROBUILD o Shared role as BIM Manager (Navisworks) o Established a BIM Implementation Plan to define:  Rules of engagement  Level of detail to be provided  Technology required  File format to be used  Segments to work on  Set targets and monitor progress o Chair weekly coordination workshops o Educated site staff how to use technology on site USING BIM AT MUNH OUR BIMTOOL BOX

  19. 19. 19/08/2013 19 BIM INITIATIVES IMPLEMENTED BY PROBUILD Key uses for BIM process: 1. Visualisation of the building 2. Clash detection 3. Estimating 4. Interrogation of documents 5. RFI process and queries 6. Design change management 7. Setting out on site 8. As-Built (untagged) model AS-BUILT MODEL (UNTAGGED) PROVIDEDTO CLIENT
  20. 20. 19/08/2013 20 THE BENEFITS OF BIM - OUR UNDERSTANDING • BIM is a ‘Process’ not defined by a single word • Much broader concept of BIM • Exploring design and construction options • Explore construction methods & sequencing options THE BENEFITS OF BIM - OUR UNDERSTANDING • Programming monitoring • Improved understanding of deliverables:  Construction detailing  Fire rating  Acoustic rating • Just a tool – should not rely on it for everything

  25. 25. 19/08/2013 25 MONASH UNIVESITY NEW HORIZONS Lessons Learnt MONASH UNIVESITY NEW HORIZONS CONTRACTOR & SUBBIES • Exchange of information – earlier is always better • Steel and Façade Shop Detailer Employed by Probuild as a sub-contractor  Engaged and involved earlier • Earlier input by Managing Contractor and sub-contractors • Client to have an understanding of what BIM is and be involved earlier • All elements to be modelled • More detail in models is always better • Consider Mechanical sub-contractor to model the electrical services for the projects Lessons Learnt
  26. 26. 19/08/2013 26 MONASH UNIVERSITY NEW HORIZONS Lessons Learnt CONSULTANTS > Doubling up of models: - Architect built their own structure model - Model by Structural Engineer not used > Insufficient time given to sub-consultants to update models > Façade and structural steel model issued to Architect to review for information. Proposal rejected in lieu of reviewing 4000+ shop drawings > No need to model item to huge level of detail - A box with size, name parameters is OK - If lucky a tag to a PDF file of Tech Data sheet would be ‘like super awesome’ FEEDBACK FROM SUB-CONTRACTORS ‘For a research facility such as MUNH, without BIM we would have struggled’. ‘The BIM process is recommended for all complex projects such as research and residential’ ‘Hypothetically…if the project was delivered under traditional 2D process there may have been for example 100 issues to resolve. With BIM it has reduced this number to 25’. Summary of the number of RFIs: - Mechanical = 239 total - Electrical = 107 total - Hydraulics = 104 total - Wet Fire = 15 total - Dry Fire = 41 total
  27. 27. 19/08/2013 27 OUR CURRENT CAPABILITIES OUR CURRENT CAPABILITIES Pre-Construction phase  Estimating  Business Developments  Design Development  Design Interrogations  Explore options  Buildability & Logistics reviews Construction phase  BIM Management role  BIM Implementation Plan  Weekly coordination workshops  Educate site staff on how to use technology
  28. 28. 19/08/2013 28 FUTURE STRATEGIES FUTURE STRATEGIES Organisational strategy  Our definition of BIM  Client expectations  Level of detail required  Project selection  Systems integration (QSE, Estimating, Design Management, Administration)  Collaboration with external parties - ACONEX - BIM Events & Lobby Groups - Consultants - Clients
  29. 29. 19/08/2013 29 CLOSING COMMENTS BENEFITS OF BIM Does the use of BIM make a difference? Suddenly, a heated exchange took place between the King and the Moat Contractor. (The Far Side, Gary Larson)
  30. 30. 19/08/2013 30 BENEFITS OF BIM Does the use of BIM make a difference? CLOSING COMMENTS CLOSING COMMENTS  Observations from BIM MEP AUS & BIM Summit 2012 - Progress overseas (Singapore, UK) - Productivity ranking for Australia (ACIF) - Target for BIM adoption (BEIIT)  Australia in the eyes of the World  Considered as a leader  Future opportunities  Current challenges in the industry – status  ROI – the need for measurability (McGraw Hill input)  Promote cooperation  Support industry initiatives such as BIM MEP AUS & BIM SUMMIT  BIM as part of the ESD movement (GBCA radar)
  31. 31. 19/08/2013 31 CLOSING COMMENTS KEY ASPECTS TO REMEMBER:  Sharing Knowledge and Experiences – to maintain momentum of the BIM movement  Keep an open mind and be flexible when embarking on the BIM journey  Be bold and be brave and always look at the glass as half full  Embrace the spirit of Collaboration – use MUNH as an example Thank you for your time
