4D BIM in Construction
Many people are at least aware of the advancement of 3D BIM models in making constructions an absolute breeze and efficient in this modern era. They serve as an intelligent digital model through which AEC (Architects, Engineering, and Construction) professionals can collaborate and coordinate construction from the design through to the handover stage.
Fortunately, BIM dimensions extend beyond the popular 3D dimensional stage. 4D BIM is equally significant in the construction project because of construction sequencing or alternatively referred to as scheduling of data for every design component. Do not worry if you find this comprehension too steep. New York Engineers can simply every dimensional layer of BIM for you.
Our engineers have been helping various construction professionals with BIM technologies. We helped project stakeholders with a clear illustration and depiction of project stages. This gives them an insight into the progression and what follows next in the project. Thanks to this additional layer, 4D BIM, in the digital information model.
3D BIM alone is insufficient to make the construction complete hence the addition of extra layers: 4D, 5D, and 7D. With New York Engineers’ 4D BIM service your construction can be expedited through an efficient digital workflow.
One might view 4D BIM as a perfect replacement tool for traditional project planners in the construction. However, that is not the case because planners still play an integral role in the construction. They can actually utilize the 4D BIM data to optimize the project planning stage.
Understanding 4D BIM
4D BIM (Building Information Modeling) is precisely the addition of another layer of digital data to the intelligent digital model. It has nothing to do with BIM levels 0, 1, 2, 3, etc. That’s a topic for another day. For now, just know that 4D BIM is an additional layer to 3D models. In simple terms, 4D BIM = 3D BIM + time schedules.
Construction sequencing is added to different components of the design. Thanks to the addition of 4D BIM to the Common Data Environment (CDE). This is the area our engineers excel in to ensure that all construction stakeholders stay abreast with each development and progression from one stage to the other. In other ways, 4D BIM readies professionals about the imminent steps.
4D BIM gives you a great step-by-step visualization of the progression of your construction. It negates the need for pen and paper tradition of planners about the stages to progress into at each level of the project. As we said, this technology does not negate the need for planners but supplement their roles. In fact, the planners can join a team of AEC professionals in working with BIM for the entire life of the project.
Moreover, planners can develop accurate programs for the projects using 4D BIM using reliable information. This technology gives them a graphical representation of specific activities. In turn, this enhances their work. With this being said, it should be evident that the technology improves the work of your planners instead of invalidating their roles as many people perceive it.
Should you get 4D BIM Service?
Of course, every large scale project can benefit tremendously from our 4D BIM service. 4D BIM makes it a cinch to create 3D visuals of your project’s development. It shows how the overall structure will be at each phase, thus improving productivity among all stakeholders. Let our service expedite your construction process with the best construction sequencing. The service expedites and maximizes efficiency.
Imagine a large scale project like a hospital complex that how planners will sweat to document the development of each phase. With BIM as the collaborative tool, each component is linked with the scheduling data. As a result, those responsible will ensure that there is enough material to complete the next phase.
Project stakeholders are able to interact and collaborate with our BIM service. They can provide each other with feedback about the development of the construction. That said, there will be no need for endless meetings or phone calls to discuss the next stage in the project as everything will be documented in our 4D BIM service. Let New York Engineers make your project a success with this game-changing virtual environment.
Usually, when given the design, project stakeholders would envisage how an asset will look like after completion. 4D technology enables a clear impression beforehand. Who wouldn’t like such a great deal of technology? Of course, no one!
Benefits of 4D BIM
With the 3D BIM, you wouldn’t know much about the sequencing of the building components hence the inclusion of 4D BIM. 5D IM follows with cost estimation and 6D with facilities management and operations. All these dimensions combined play an integral role in a typical construction project.
4D BIM can be regarded as the catalyst of any typical project. Constructions are predominantly time-sensitive wherein a single day’s delay can incur huge costs overlay. 4D dimension solves the issue of scheduling specific activities. New York Engineers are experts in this field and so you should not worry about that. Our engineers will help you design, manage and develop construction projects using this cutting-edge technology.
4 Key Outcomes of 4D BIM
Below are a few yet important benefits of 4D BIM in constructions:
1). Planning improvement: our 4D BIM improves your scheduling and planning efforts. It takes out the uncertainty in the development of your project from A to B across all components. All thanks to the advanced digital workflow that our engineer plan for you. We know that clashes, errors, and mistakes are common in construction projects. With our 4D BIM, we can help the management team prevent such occurrences. We present you with a detailed illustration of the project’s development upon which you can plan your progression.
Planning plays an integral role in large construction projects. Without proper planning, owners may incur huge costs while at the same facing time-schedule challenges. BIM gives you a graphical representation of your construction sequencing to aid your planning. More importantly, team members get to know what follows in the project. They are then made ready and prepared for upcoming activities. As a result, the right tools and materials can be organized before time.
2). Monitoring of the Project: large scale projects are burdensome to manually keep track of what’s happening next. The same applies significantly with small scale projects too. The best way to alleviate such inconveniences of project monitoring is to consider our 4D BIM service to give you a clear visualization of all the components. We link scheduling data to every component to see how it develops throughout your project life cycle to completion.
For a project manager to keep control of a project, he or she must make sure that all aspects are being accounted for. Thanks to New York Engineers’ 4D BIM technology that constructions can be fast-paced efficiently and on time. Gone are the days of a pen and paper in monitoring projects to track the progress. Construction sequence plays an integral role in project monitoring.
3). All stakeholders collaborate: Imagine a construction project where all stakeholders are on the same page. This would benefit the project tremendously. For instance, no unnecessary change orders, miscommunications, and clashes. That would be huge savings to your construction costs.
Our 4D BIM technology enables construction parties to be on the same page with regard to the progress of all components. It could installations or curing of other components, our additional sequencing data ca do the magic to collaborate all team members. It keeps everyone up to date with recent changes.
