Design Conflict Resolution

As a coordination consultant, the design inputs from various consultants are first coordinated through the BIM model by Techture. Any design conflicts or inconsistencies in the inputs from various different stakeholders are raised before any issues are seen on site. Clash free construction drawing sets are then worked upon which lead to swift time bound execution.

Coordination and Clash Detection

The BIM model acts as an unparalleled tool for coordination and clash detection between components of different disciplines. Techture has experience on clash detection at all LOD (Levels of development) on building as well as infrastructure projects.

Coordinated ModelGeneration

At Techture, we have the capability to model projects upto the highest level of detail owing to a dedicated team of custom component creation and thorough knowledge of the actual construction process and details. We are abreast with LOD specifications across the world to ensure coherent modelling standards.

Clash Reports

With BIM, we can detect multidisciplinary clashes and report them to you well before the time, preventing any delays and cost overruns. As the construction process proceeds, different stakeholders contribute their own design and layout models. Often these different models contain several overlapping elements or “clashes” which need to be resolved for the construction to proceed.

Clash reports

For instance, we can tell you if the HVAC ducts will clash with the structural beam framing after doing a clash analysis of the models. This saves any costs that would have otherwise gone towards demolition of clashing components, additional procurement of redesigned components or regeneration of drawings.

Clash reports

A coordinated model incorporating Architectural, Structural and MEP disciplines is the output after adjustments to the clashes to ensure minimum constructability constraints during construction. This model can then be used for all the stakeholders to be on the same page as far as the progress of the construction and target realization is concerned. This coordinated model is free of any interdisciplinary clashes and thus facilitates in greater and more efficient communication of updated designs among all the parties involved.

Clash Matrix

A Clash matrix is a document representing the clashes among the services, utilities and component pre-defined. The elements are first defined in the first horizontal row and vertical columns, in a way that they are arranged in the same order to coincide in one corresponding cell.Once we have the Clash detection report, we then put the values in the corresponding coinciding cells of the number of clashes experienced among both the components.

For example, the Clash Matrix for an Infrastructure project can be prepared in the following type:

1. Utility to Utility

2. Roads to Utility

Clash Reports

Clash detection allows for the effective identification, inspection and reporting of interferences in a 3D project model . The report which is generated to describe those clashes in detail is called Clash report . This helps in identifying the position and elements involved in the clashes experienced in the model.

An initial clash detection process is carried out once the LOD 300 model is prepared corresponding to the IFC inputs received, and the model is then coordinated based on the RFI’s raised and resolved with the help of the Clash report generated.

RFI Management

Often in construction projects, a lack of understanding in design as well as a lack of close coordination between project teams cause inconsistencies. These are presented in the form of RFIs (Requests for information) which end up in costing the project stakeholders more time and money than the initial planned budgets.

By simulating building construction just as it would take place on the site, we would provide valuable insight into the constructability of your project. Our multi-disciplinary team raises red flags to all the relevant project partners well before time, allowing you to improve your performance and predictability of construction. The cloud based systems being used to manage RFIs ensures a clear flow of information and quick resolution of issues.

Some of the systems that we recommend are open BIM platforms like BCFier as well as advanced platforms like Aconex and BIM 360 for more complex projects.

Constructability Issues

At times, Clash Detection and Coordination are simply not enough to prevent the hassles on site. It needs a more sophisticated engineering approach to report certain kinds of issues which might cause problems on the construction site even if it does not clash with any other element. Our team of Architects and Engineers makes the discovery of such issues possible with sheer practical experience of the actual construction procedure. This is where we get an extra edge over the mere draughtsman and adds value to the BIM software skills in terms of real construction engineering.

As you may see in the above example of one of our projects, the structural opening for the skylight was experienced to be 30% larger than the actual facade skylight which was supposed to get installed. Also, the picture on the right in the above image represents an example where the duct does not clash with any component. But when modelled according to the elevation mentioned in the design drawings, the duct seemed to be running below the false ceiling which is would have been a major blunder had the drawings reached the construction site without the BIM modelling process.

Such problems are raised in the form of invaluable RFI’s and are solved before the design goes on-site, making the entire construction process through BIM more efficient and time-saving, the way it’s supposed to be!

Value Engineering

When we work on projects, we're not just looking at meeting submission deadlines but about how more value can be added to it. Technologies assist us in achieving those milestones. Value engineering is a lot about how we can suggest unique and innovative ways of solving conventional problems and help our clients save time and costs. These problems aren't obvious either. Sometimes, there are just better ways of doing things which are not very apparent.

Our value engineering services encompass:
