This video helps to explain how the construction project data flows through preconstruction to estimating to scheduling and out to the field for production control.
Vico Office is designed to breakdown traditional construction department silos with the project information data flow. By creating a 5D BIM model which incorporates design, estimating data, and scheduling data, we get a means and method model. This live model is dynamic and responds immediately to changes in the design and out on-site. Vico Office leverages its integration between the 3D model, the 4D schedule, and the 5D estimate. From the 3D model geometry, we derive the construction-caliber quantities. These takeoff items each have a special assembly of material, labor, and equipment. These costed takeoff items and resources are then organized by location for an optimal schedule. The result is a cost- and resource-loaded schedule. And because of the tight integration, a design change in the model is immediately evaluated with a new schedule and new estimate.
