Significant improved efficiency
For options 1 and 2, the 3D mechanical, electrical and piping models are inserted in the 3D structural model, allowing manufacturers to design their assemblies by avoiding conflicts directly, not blindly.
For option 2, manufacturers who join the Structural team from the beginning of the project can influence the design of steel structures by quickly confirming the availability of parts and even reserving them from suppliers. This ensures construction material availability and the proposed completion schedule can be confirmed.
Both options provide more accurate construction cost monitoring by extracting materials to order (MTO) directly from the model.
With specialized software, technicians can also increase efficiency when making the many changes required during a feasibility study. Changes during design are no longer seen as a huge amount of work.
Improving efficiency shortens project schedules.
