3D BIM Clash Detection
Many General Contractors have discovered the benefits of the clash detection process during preconstruction. Seeing these conflicts ahead of time and fixing them is critical to a smooth installation once the project is underway.
With all the work that goes into clash detection and coordination, we don’t want the BIM experience to end there. It just makes sense that the coordinated models should now be used for quantity takeoff, locations, scheduling, and estimating. Since the investment has been made, don’t leave money on the table!
There are several companies who offer clash detection software for the AEC market. These are fine products with loyal customers. We offer an interesting alternative: do a comprehensive clash detection with the understanding that the coordinated models will produce more accurate quantities by location; do a comprehensive clash detection with the understanding that the coordinated models will lead to more off-site prefabrication which can save hours of re-work in the field; do a comprehensive clash detection with the understanding that the coordinated models will mean smoother installation.
If your clash detection sessions don’t result in a shorter schedule and more precise cost plan, then it’s time to consider Vico Office Constructability Manager.
There is a tremendous amount of information available on our website about clash detection and coordination. Take advantage of these resources and make an informed decision about our integrated approach to clash detection.
