Builders

Overview, Problem and Services value

Coordination meetings
  • In these meetings BIM Edge undertakes a Services, Structure and Architecture coordination review. We use computer aided clash detection software to detect issues in the design. We also complete a traditional manual review of each area to ensure we capture as many issues as possible.
  • By reviewing and resolving issues before construction starts on site many costly and time-consuming issues can be avoided.

Services

We provide a full range of services for Builders on construction projects.

  • Coordination meetings – Consultants / Design Team
    • These meetings are completed with the Consultant and Design Team to find issues with the design early in the process. This is when large issues can be resolved for example, e.g. plant rooms size, structure beam sizes and column locations, services riser locations etc.
  • Coordination meetings – Contractors/Shop drawing
    • These meetings a completed with the Contractor and Shop drawings team, these meetings focus on detailed services coordination. In these meetings each area of the building is reviewed in detail, every issue is assigned to a contractor to resolve and issues assigned can be accessed and tracked on site. This coordination process leads to a huge reduction in services construction issues/clashes on site.
  • Construction sequence Images, Video and Animation
    • This is computer generated Images, Video and Animation of the proposed construction process. These can be used to explain the construction process, methodology, safety in design, prefab system or construction innovation to a client or user group during tender or construction. As the construction world gets more complex there is a growing need for clear and simple communication to the client.
  • Real Time Visualization and Virtual Reality(VR)
    • This service involves developing a rendered computer model of the building, this model is then used with a VR headset to immerse the client in the building or space.
    • This real time VR environment is used to communicate many different ideas including; council planning, community engagement, client design approval, client finishes selection, explaining construction workflow and methods, client facility testing with staff and user groups.
    • VR technology offers the most realistic way to experience and understand a building or space before construction.
Manufactures

Overview, Problem and Services value

Simple, searchable, integrated, customer focused. Integrated into customer workflow

We help manufactures in the construction industry connect with, inform and educate their customers on their products.

Products in Construction are getting more advanced and sophisticated, this is leading to thousands of new products being created every year. Customers have to sort through each one of these complex products and specifications, comparing each to find the one that best meets their needs.

Customer then have to convert the manufactures information into a format they can use in there documentation, model, drawings, specifications, reports or schedules. This searching, comparing and converting of information takes hours and leaves customers frustrated when they can't find the product they need.

We solve this problem by building custom software, apps and plugins that guide users through a simple step by step selection process to find the product that best suits their needs. We then deliver the product information in a format the customer can use immediately in their documentation, models, drawings, specifications, reports or schedules.

We provide information in 3D formats like Autodesk Revit, ArchiCAD, AutoCAD and more. We provide detailed information on each product for inclusion in customer specifications, reports and schedules.

All this leads to more customers finding, specifying and buying your product.
