Boost Efficiency and Return on Investment
BIM models are important for many aspects of structural engineering and architectural design. By using specialist modelling software it is possible to create 3D models of various systems within a commercial or industrial building. We use BIM models for toilet cubicles to help us to more accurately plan, design and install the best washroom systems.
In a sense, BIM models are a form of information storage. In the construction industry, cloud-based building information modelling can increase the efficiency of a design and construction project by enabling access to this information. BIM provides very precise details during the design process, so each department can share the exact specifications of their area of the construction project.
We use many different BIM models for toilet cubicles in our work, which gives us an edge as industry-leading providers of cubicle and washroom systems – as we can provide faster, higher-quality and more cost-effective installations.
You can get the benefits of BIM when you work with us – if you have a new washroom installation to complete please feel free to get in touch.
Benefits of BIM Models for Toilet Cubicles
BIM models are computer files, which contain data that can help a team to make better decisions during a project. There may be any number of BIM objects in use, depending on the nature of the building. In a large commercial building such as new skyscraper construction, there may be thousands of 2D and 3D models involved.
The BIM models are viewable and shareable between teams, which increases interdepartmental accuracy during a project and streamlines decision making. The following are some of the core benefits of BIM modelling:
- Collaboration: Electricians, plumbers, structural engineers and people in many other fields must work harmoniously for efficient construction. With BIM models they are aware of each other’s plans. They may be completely unrelated fields, but the potential for one department to make a decision that negatively impacts another is eliminated by using BIM.
- Cost-effectiveness: Efficiency losses can impact the costs of a project quite substantially, in large projects inefficiencies could cost millions. BIM models help efficiency as they prevent the need for rework or clashes between departments and boost productivity, so it is a smart way to reduce the cost burdens of a project. This is especially important for public sector work.
- Visualisation: Architects, fabricators, engineers and contractors all need accurate plans to work from to achieve the best outcome. BIM models offer immensely detailed structural schematics, product details and visualisation opportunities, so each department can drill down to the smallest details with pinpoint accuracy.
Cloud-based software means that when any change or update is made it is there for all to see, and if there is a potential issue this can be averted. BIM models help to manage complexity, which provides a huge gain during construction but also offers a significant boost to the ease of facility management once a project is complete.
The software and BIM models in use vary between projects, many tools are in use and there are specific tools for the different disciplines. For example, some software focuses on cost-modelling – whereas other software focuses on visualization. There are also multidisciplinary tools that can be used by multiple departments.
BIM is a continuously developing practice, with emerging new standards to help mitigate risks and lower complexities across many vocations. It can be difficult to grasp the intricacies of BIM, but as we use it to aid our installations of toilets and cubicle systems we are well-placed to explain its main concepts and benefits.
BIM Models for Toilet Cubicles Explained
Using building information modelling enables you to share data between each department during the design, construction and post-construction stages of a project. BIM models for toilet cubicles are in regular use during our work, which helps give clients a better return on investment and more effective final result.
BIM is an intelligent, data-led approach to managing physical infrastructure. Ultimately BIM delivers greater efficiency and cost gains, which makes it a practical mode of construction. If you require toilets, cubicles, changing rooms or washroom installations and want to take advantage of BIM, please feel free to get in touch.
