A3D Presentation

  1. 1. A3D - Advanced 3D Technologies Ltd 4D planning for bid tenders, pre-construction and construction 3D building information models & coordination 3D facilities management modelsAdvanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  2. 2. What is 4D project planning? A Management Tool Combining a 3D Model & Programme • Extended, deeper version of conventional planning • Visualisation of Bid Tenders, pre-construction & construction • More detail, more accuracy, more realistic programme = less risk • Communication - a 3D visualisation of a Gantt chart • Brings together all sub-contractor programmes - a single resourceAdvanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  3. 3. 4D applied site-wide, individual buildings, specific areasAdvanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  4. 4. Level of detail depends on purpose – Bid tender - Level 1Advanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  5. 5. Level of detail – Pre Construction Model - Level 2 ModelAdvanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants Minto Sheppard & Midtown – 3D & 4D
  6. 6. Level of detail – Construction Model - Level 3 Model 4D Planning & communication M&E facilities management Construction animation 4D logistics Coordination & clash detection Lime Street - 4D & 3D BIM model All deliverables from a single BIM modelAdvanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  7. 7. Process - Bid Tender example of 4D in practice Used AutoCAD ADT to build 3D model ready for 4D – then added 3D logistics Architect found in the programme Renzo Piano Project Manager Construction Programme Asta Power Project, MS Project or Primavera used to create programme Include logistics; site set-up, Deliver unlimited 4D models & viewers linked programme to 3D model then through project website accommodation, hoardings, worked with mace to test & review2D drawings were supplied in bridge, lay down, access, hoists,DWG format plus 3D wire frame programme and incorporate changes provide virtual interrogation through 4D tower cranes, major equipment. plus galleries of key visuals and avi’s Vision Programme 4D Model Deliver Advanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  8. 8. Animations v 4D viewer – project communication 4D PAL models can be viewed at any date in the project from any viewpoint. The information can be interrogated and manipulated. Views can be emailed for discussion or contained in presentations. Animations are generated from the 4D model. Whilst they are informative they cannot be interrogated and the view is static. PAL 4D models are easy to use engineering tools for review and discussion, distributed as a single file from a project website. Example Bid Tender animation has been speeded up!Advanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  9. 9. Use 4D viewer to communicate, inform & discuss 4D model distributed free to all project stakeholders • look at model, walkthrough, fly around etc. • view programme by pending/active/completed tasks by date or contractor Interrogate model • click & retrieve data • where are we or should we be? • where should we be next month? • what is the contractor doing? • is there going to be access for? • what are the implications of?Advanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  10. 10. Viewing 4D Programmes in PAL baseline or actual 2 way link to project application Retrieve/modify programme dataclick any item to interrogateGo to date activities by colourAdvanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants time slider bar or auto-play
  11. 11. Benefits of using A3D services • A single stop solution – highly experienced – track record – free software • A master programme for the works • Significant savings in overall project time (tighter control of tasks time) • Desktop viewing in 3D of site progress for client and consultants via a web page • Better communication & reduced meeting times using model to explain and resolve queries • Improved site planning and logistics • Fewer disputes between client and contractor • A CD of the 4D model can be made part of the tender documents leading to lower tender prices as the contractor is better able to understand what he is to build. • Asset management – use the 3D model going forwardAdvanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  12. 12. A3D deliverables from 4D A3D’s models can be used for other purposes and may be read directly by NavisWorks or any other viewer that reads DWG Design Review Models The 3D M&E models are used for coordination as well as 4D The as-built models can be used for Facilities Management Planning information from Gantt Charts delivered in usual way Functionality in project software applications used for charts and reports etc. Planning Reports Cost applications – EVA – for forecasting in MS Project or similar A3D are expert’s in 4D AVI’s - suitable for presentations, but limited use as a planning tool because they are pre-configured, cannot be zoomed in/out, interrogated, related to a programme, dynamically updated and become out of AVI’s & Presentation date too quickly 4D models should be delivered in their originating application to allow interrogation, dynamic viewing & zooming, reports, forward look-ahead reports, filtering etc. 4D Models - Planning PAL viewers are Free, do not require the source CAD system and are easy to use 3D and 4D models can be used for health & safety and risk assessment Health & Safety documentationAdvanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
  13. 13. Business Case – full support – experienced – track record Full 4D support services provided by A3D Track record of 4D on Live projects Software support to handle & resolve technical issues 4D training from experienced professionals Project Web Servers to handle the distribution of 4D 4D implementation Scaleable Experienced Immediate No Learning Curve Least RiskAdvanced 3D Technologies Limited. 4D Planning and Coordination Consultants
