How About Eliminating Endless Construction Coordination Meetings

Project complexity has increased, but our tools and capabilities for managing it have improved as well. Now it is time to re-think our processes of clash detection and conflict resolution.

Precise Virtual 3D Modeling: The future of concrete construction is coordination, automation, and prefabrication

A highly detailed structural 3D model directly impacts the MEP model. By repeating iterations between the initial design and the final shop drawing, the team was able to optimize the MEP routing and reduce materials by 30%. Because the model reflects exactly what would be built and eliminated the chance of last-minute changes, everything could be ordered to fit, ultimately eliminating waste.
