Why 4D & 5D BIM are so important for your construction project?

Building Information Modeling facilitates a variety of services like building design, 3D modeling, clash detection, 4D scheduling, cost estimation, etc. to Engineers, Contractors, and other professionals. BIM is a new generation technology which is used in developing effective 3D coordination models. 3D coordination models provide you clear 360-degree 3D view of your designed buildings including each and every angle. When you analyze these models, you not only get comprehensive information about the building models but you can also detect serious conflicts within the designs or models. BIM 4D and 5D analysis are executed for preparing a proper schedule of all construction work along with detailed charts regarding project’s overall cost estimation.

How 4D BIM services assist you in scheduling your project works?

4D building information modeling is employed for simulating the schedules of various construction activities and space requirements. 4D BIM services enable users in getting powerful 3D visualization that assists project team members as well as other users like Owner, Contractors, etc. to understand the entire project and construction plans more efficiently.

In building renovation project, 4D models are utilized for scheduling the phased occupancy. These building models are manipulated for construction site utilization planning. 4D BIM models enable you to ideate the locations of permanent facilities as well as temporary facilities on construction site.

4D building models provide time-based clash detection facilities. Time-based clash detection services empower BIM Modelers in obtaining an in-depth insight of the coordination models. Modelers can efficiently inspect whether the building materials, construction members, and other equipment have properly coexisted within the allocated space or not. You can also integrate the construction scheduling models with the actual project models and can easily analyze the effect of temporary items such as cranes, formwork, etc. Hence, you can perform time-based clash detection more potentially.

4D building information models assist you in making links among the construction components of the building model and the corresponding task planning. So, you can form an idea when and on which date the components are required for installation on site. You also can add parameters to the components of the building model that helps you to track the ordered materials as well as delivery status.

How do you determine your project cost?

In 5D building information modeling services, the 5th dimension i.e. information related to cost estimation is included in a project model. Within the models, the entire cost estimation related information is included in such a way that if you make any kind of modification in the design or model the budget will also be modified instantly according to the model.

5D BIM services provide you wide-ranging information like types of materials like rebar, concrete, formwork, material take-offs, material quantities, and other resource details such as equipment details, labor details, etc. When you perform 5D BIM analysis, you will get the following advantages:

  • Enables you in creating databases related to taking off quantities, material costs, types of materials that will be used during construction, crew composition, number of labors and their wages detail, sub-KPIs, etc.
  • Provides comprehensive information on project risks
  • Assists you in estimating budget accurately
  • Helps you to experiment your project model for different cost estimation data
  • Aids you in executing detailed cost estimation analysis of each module of a construction project

4D and 5D BIM services have brought a range of opportunities for professionals. These services play a big role in saving time and reducing project costs.
