The AEC industry has been advancing at an incredible pace like never before. Technological integrations are being adopted within the various sectors of the AEC industry, and tremendous outputs are obtained. As the technology develops in the future, more possibilities are open for the AEC domain. In this blog, we will be discussing the latest technological trends in the AEC industry!
BIM Documentation is fundamental to BIM and is needed at various stages within the project lifecycle, as stated in PAS1192-2:2013. There are multiple documents that are a part of a BIM workflow, and in this blog, we will be discussing the major documents that have to be formed for a successful BIM implementation on your project.
Integrated project delivery (IPD) is considered as an advanced method of project delivery since all the entities related to the project have to work in a highly collaborative manner to achieve the goals set out for the project. The owner selects an Architect, contractor, and a construction management team if required before the kick-off of a project’s design. A joint contract is signed between all three entities after goals, objectives, and scope are established collaboratively.
Most clients would probably have a distinct idea about the information they would want to see from their respective project teams during the delivery phase as proposals are being designed and priced. They’re probably also clear on the information they require at handover to be able to run their newly completed building and get the best out of it. Exchange Information Requirements or EIRs are the documents where those needs are set out.
All construction projects require a blend of services, including planning, finance, design, and construction. Construction project delivery methods consist of ways to organize these services to execute the project. While each project delivery method generally includes an owner, a designer, and a builder, the execution of a project will differ. The steps required and taken in a project’s journey to completion will define how successful the project will be. Therefore, choosing the right project delivery method is a very crucial step to be taken before construction begins.
Before the commencement of any construction project, especially for unusually large or complex projects with several different parties in collaboration, it’s essential to create a BIM Execution Plan (BEP) to review and implement it throughout the various phases of the project. The plan is mainly useful for helping to ensure that all the parties are in sync when it comes to collaboration and taking the project further. It shows an overall plan of execution, keeping the big picture clear and in focus.
Autodesk Revit 2021 has been recently released on 8th April 2020, and we have compiled the top 21 upgrades that we all have been waiting for. The major improvements Autodesk has focused on this time around are productivity, collaboration, generative design, visualization, and data exchange.
