BIM is not just a 3D design, it is a database of information about all aspects of a project - structure, geometry, aesthetics, materials, systems, dynamic performance - all contained within a digital model. In order to gain from the efficiencies and collaboration brought about by BIM for activities like – estimating, scheduling, translating the UNIFORMAT data into MasterFormat (CSI) data is inevitable. We condition various aspects of model like – create bid packages, set up views, schedule building, schedule linking, production tracking.
A conditioned model can be shared with every member of the team, enabling a new level of exploration, collaboration, coordination and operational efficiency possible. You can think of this as a ‘digital Slump test’ for your 3D design.
