For any BIM project, our clients are concerned with 2 main elements: cost and quality of work. At AcePLP, we have built a team of over 200 BIM Specialists that can operate in a multiple BIM software environment. This enables our clients to flexibly define their software use within their project needs, in-house expertise and budget.
Here’s how AcePLP can facilitate your BIM implementation success:
1. Identify the right people for your projects
In creating and managing a collaborative BIM process, it is usually necessary to use a combination of software. For example, most contractors use Revit for modelling MRT stations and PowerRail Track/OpenRail and GenerativeComponents for modelling tunnel viaducts. These models are then exported as IFC models for coordination purpose in Autodesk Navisworks or Bentley Navigator. Separately, shopdrawings can be extracted from the BIM model and are developed in AutoCAD or MicroStation.
Depending on which phase of the construction lifecycle you are in, hiring an individual with incompatible software skillsets and experience would likely result in costly project overruns. Our Resource Managers can help you overcome this problem by matching the BIM Specialist with the appropriate project experience to your operational needs.
2. Ensure projects are kept on-time and within budget
For contractors who wish to report progress updates, native BIM models can be linked to the baseline programme in SynchroPro as part of 4D BIM deliverables. Cost and quantity take-off can be achieved using CostX for 5D BIM deliverables.
BIM Managers ensure that the infrastructure information models are coordinated so that accurate construction schedules can be created.
3. Customise software use for your project needs
Depending on your budget and in-house expertise, not all projects uses the same suite of software – and we recognize that. Our team takes on adhoc projects for service and training in Autodesk Civil 3D, Graphisoft ArchiCAD, Bentley OpenPlant.
Your selected suite of software should not stop us from the objective of achieving a collaborative BIM process to maximize construction efficiency. Our training team can rapidly pool resources to ensure that team members are adequately trained in your unique software requirements.
