Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Providing global on-point and cutting-edge Building Information Modeling service.
Engineering projects in the UAE, especially in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah, are thriving rapidly. It is very visible anywhere around the country because of the unlimited ongoing construction projects everywhere. It also shows that Engineering consultants and Engineering companies in the UAE are doing their best to accumulate all of these projects and more future projects to come. For them to execute the building process accurately and to come up with the expected result perfectly, BIM companies in Dubai with expert BIM consultants are all using the best and latest Building Information Modeling process. BIM consultants in Dubai aim to easily and accurately share data and information of the project to all involved teams and the owner during and after the building process.
What is Building Information Modeling (BIM) and its capacity?
Building Information Modeling or BIM involves the generation and management of digital rendition of physical and functional aspects of a facility supported by using various tools, and technologies. BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information and data about a project forming a reliable basis for decisions during its building process through extracted, exchanged, or networked proprietary files or data. It is mainly used by those who plan, design, construct, operate, and maintain diverse physical infrastructures. It involves more than just geometry, also covers spatial relationships, light analysis, geographic information, quantities, and properties of building components such as manufacturers' and materials’ information. There are BIM design tools that allow a secured extraction of contrasting views from a building model project for drawing production and other essential uses. Each model element can support features for automatic selection and order, providing cost estimates as well as material tracking and ordering.
There are a lot of developments that may allow BIM to further enhance its capabilities in building process management from 3D to the latest modeling dimensional presentations. BIM companies in Dubai and the professionals involved in a project use BIM that enables a virtual information model to be handed from the design team such as architects, engineers, and others to the main contractor and subcontractors and then on to the owner or operator to provide accuracy in communicating about the project. All of these are necessary to design and analyze different systems quickly and efficiently. It also allows each professional to add, save, or eliminate specific data to the single shared model.
Building Information modeling or BIM Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah is constantly evolving and its use is becoming essential to the success of the project as well as it has a competitive advantage. BIM’s three-dimensional computer models improve collaboration and decision-making. It also enables easy trialing of design variations and multi-user working, enables clash detection between disciplines, allows real-time scheduling, and provides accurate cost and quantity estimates.
What is the process of BIM?
Building information modeling or BIM is a process supported by various tools, technologies, and contracts involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. BIM companies in UAE provide services that combine many aspects since Building Information Modeling is a process that involves the act of building something together, whether it relates to architecture, infrastructure, civil engineering, landscaping, or other large-scale projects. One of their goals is to bring all of these layers of information that show the building’s every detail into one place, so it’s easy to keep track of everything. And through the Building Information Model, the BIM companies in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, & Sharjah together with their Architectural, Engineering, and Construction team can provide a model as a tool for the building owner’s source of data for future maintenance and other necessities of the building. The Process of BIM Services of Engineering Consultants are as follows:
At DAT our services include:
- Commercial Layouts
- Villa/Residence Designs
- Commercial Structures
Design and Planning
Project planning relies on capturing real-world data from pre-existing environments. All areas of design are performed and are taken into consideration for scheduling and logistics. Visualizations of designs and plans are all documented and stored in one place.
Build and Construction
Timing and efficiency and managed by sharing logistics with trades and contractors. Project information is shared with every team.
Operations and Maintenance
Data is carried over, stored, and used for maintenance, renovation, or efficient deconstruction.
BIM Level of Development
Concept Design LOD 100
Creation and development of the Building 3D Model representing the basic level of information. In this stage, only the conceptual model can possibly be created where parameters such as area, height, volume, location, and orientation are specified.
Schematic Design LOD 200
General model wherein the elements are modeled with estimated quantities, size, shape, location, and orientation. Non-geometric data can be assigned to the model elements.
Detailed Design LOD 300
Graphical rendering of the model element representing data on a specific system, object, or assembly in terms of quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation. The Model Element can be further enhanced by the attachment of non-graphic data.
Construction Documentation LOD 350
This level includes the details and elements of the model exhibiting the way building elements associate with various systems and other building elements with both graphic and written descriptions.
Fabrication & Assembly LOD 400
A model with a complete set of fabrication, assembly, and detailed data for each specific Model Element with a precise quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation. Non-geometric data can be assigned to the model elements.
As-Built LOD 500
Existing elements are modeled as constructed assemblies for current and future maintenance and operations. In addition to actual and accurate in size, shape, location, quantity, and orientation, non-geometric data is attached to modeled elements.
