Transcript of BIM - The Consulting Story

BIM: 'THE CONSULTING STORY'
- Implementation within an Engineering Consultancy
CONTENTS
Daryl Armstrong
BELFAST. CONSULTING RAIL AND STRATEGIC HIGHWAYS. INFRASTRUCTURE.
CHANGE PROGRAM - BIM IMPLEMENTATION. BIM IMPLEMENTATION MANAGER
STRUCTURAL ENGINEER. AMEY.
GRAD QUB MENG CIVIL. 5 YEARS
So tell me, what is this thing BIM really?
BRIDGES CULVERTS ETC. CONTRACTS ACROSS THE UK. WORLD.
BELFAST. INVOLVEMENT IN SEVERAL BIM PROJECTS TO DATE.
BIM IMPLEMENTATION
What does all that mean?
&
How do I actually use it?
Generic Advantages of BIM
- Intelligent 3D modeling

- Improve collaboration

- Review multiple options

- Clash detection

- Test construction programmes

- Visualisations for marketing and stakeholder engagement

- Embed intelligence into the model

- Improve quaility and productivity

- Reduce cost
OK
Client wants to do it

Competitive advantage

BIM Business Case
BIM Workflow
Example Costs
Hardware & Software:
- Significant 1 off cost (High spec hardware. Licenses expensive)
- Compatible with existing OS
- Existing IT infrastructure - 'pipesizes'
- Common Data Environment
- IT Support

Training:
- Required in more than 1 package
- Courses relatively long duration and expensive
- Not tailored to infrastructure schemes

Drop in productivity:
- General guidance states
1st Project = x3
2nd Project = x2
3rd Project = Break even
BIM CHANGE PROGRAMME
BIM INTEGRATION - Case Studies
1. Footbridge Refurbishment
2. Flood Elevation Culvert
6. New East Bridge Feasibility Study
5. Dundonald Park & Ride
4. M8 M73 M74
3. Tunnel Refurbishment
Footbridge Refurbishment
Laser Survey
3D Model - Schedule of Quantities
Flood Elevation Scheme
Tunnel Refurbishment
M8 M73 M74

New East Bridge Feasibility Study
LESSONS LEARNED
1. Easy wins - laser survey and software packages
e.g. Revit, Civil 3D

2. Success highly dependent on staff
- Quality
- Motivation
- Retention

3. Software maturity and interoperability

4. Training packages

5. BIM processes, workflows and interfaces

6. Communication, coordination and engagement
- Executive
- IT support
- Client, Supply chain

BIM PROCESSES, PROTOCOLS & WORKFLOWS
Summary
1. Correct small scale

2. x3 longer

3. Discovered that training provided has very limited application to infrastructure projects.

4. COBie not available for linear assets
Summary
1. Test of modeling and reinforcement detailing

2. Benefits in terms of drafting easily identifiable

3. Reinforcement detailing requires further testing

Summary
1. Test of coordination and interoperability with laser survey, Autodesk and Bentley

2. Determine workflows

3. Test of Clash Detection

4. Determine accuracy and speed of results

5. Partially model M&E fit out
Site Photos
Laser survey follow resurfacing and first phase M&E fit out
Clash Detection Test
Modeling tunnel and services for M&E construction drgs
Dundonald Park & Ride
FUTURE
M8 M73 M74
To be progressed into design and construction

Dundonald P&R
Progressed to construction phase
(Docia)

New East Bridge, Enniskillen
Potential to be progressed to detailed design, if approved

Revit Model
Render
Visualisation
Summary
1. Use of free extensions

- Bridge Modeller

- Integration with Civil 3D




Summary
1. Collaborative modelling and design process

2. Workflows and interfaces tested using federated models

3. Clash Detection

4. Quantities extracted to assist preparation of scheme estimates

5. Visuals used for public consultation process
Site Visualisation - Infrastructure Modeller
3D ground model also used to model drainage and attenuation systems
Architectural and Structural Model of terminal building generated in Revit
Clash Detection used to coordinate federated utilities with ground model
4D Analysis and Construction Programme tested in Navisworks
TBC
SEED AND DEVELOP BIM HUBS
COMMUNICATION AND COLLABORATION
Target specific locations across UK to establish BIM Hubs

Locations selected on:
- Staff
- Workload
- IT infrastructure

Initially weekly meetings to establish teams and ensure hubs are fully operational:
- Team members
- Hardware
- Software
- Training
- Common data environment (Sharepoint)

Initial implementation period to motivate and empower local BIM Implementation Managers:
- Direct communication with local Account Manager
- Assigned specialist area to develop
- B.I.M. Reports

Second Phase to progress company wide initiatives that allow BIM Implementation Managers to be fully integrated into the teams e.g. Information Managers. and train others

Service level required by the client:

• Targets – running cost, capital cost, environment and
functionality
• Comparison of predicted performance against targets
• Simple operating instructions
• Early warnings of problems
• Metered data on the performance
• Ready access to all digital data about our asset
• Cost effective transfer of data from construction to operation
• Service provider having all required operational data
• Actual measured performance of our asset
• Fine tuning the actual performance
• Recorded performance
• Feedback to the design and construction team.
