How 3D BIM Coordination can help to save time & money
Nowadays, MEP (M&E) design consultants are using BIM modeling services and Revit 3D BIM modeling to design and coordinate multi-disciplinary work in a 3D environment. BIM services identify and reduce the amount of early stage clashes in the design. Creating a collaborative BIM model allows all engineers involved to coordinate their design with other disciplines; thus, reducing the number of design clashes and resulting in costs being saved during installation.

The implementation of BIM modeling services for coordination improves clash detection compared to the traditional 2D methods used. By creating a 3D model which can be used for walkthroughs, owners and designers can avoid costly, last minute construction changes due to building services, structural and architectural building clashes. BIM modeling manages the risk during the design process by minimizing and significantly reducing constructability issues for the MEP industry. Revit 3D BIM models also allows engineers to produce accurate MEP coordination drawings as well as simplify the process for quantity takeoffs, locations, scheduling, and estimates.

How are Stakeholders helped by Residential Architectural Renderings?

Residential architectural rendering and residential BIM modeling allows you to clarify the vision you have for the house design being created.

In the case of the stakeholder, a rendering of the house is one of the best methods for establishing the initial look and feel of the site. A residential architectural rendering of either an interior or exterior brings a realistic, aesthetic dimension to the design process that floor plans and section drawings are unable to achieve. The productions of residential architectural renderings communicate and confirm the vision for the building being developed between the stakeholder, contractor, and the buyers.

Residential rendering of the building allows your buyers to experience and connect with your project. Using architectural rendering for a residential development allows a homebuilder to more easily sell and market the idea of the development’s design.

Although it may mean additional costs and time, the visual layer that 3d renders or BIM models can bring to the design and marketing process outweigh the cost and time drawbacks. For several years, the quality of renderings has evolved because key stakeholders, architects, contractors and potential buyers demand more information and visual references – they will continue to do so and therefore the importance of a reliable, experienced, potentially offshore provider of rendered images become important.

Understanding BIM Collaboration and C4R Using A360 Team

The introduction of Collaboration for Revit (C4R) has allowed design partners to share files during the design phase as the entire model is being uploaded to the cloud during the design process. The opportunity to collaborate in this way provides many advantages to the design team and enhances the chances of project success. For example if the architectural design team in one location (could be a different floor, different city or different country) is working on one part of the project and uploading the changes to the cloud on a daily basis and notifies the other team members, the MEP team which may well be at a different location will see updated changes and be able to respond and amend their models as they see the changes made by the architectural team.

So, what is A360 and how does it function? Cloud technology has made A360 possible and it helps to share the model online and view any Autodesk format files on the user’s PC or viewing device. This alone encourages collaboration.

A new feature in Revit 2017, A360 Team, provides a platform for C4R. C4R allows the Revit model to be shared and updated on the cloud using the A360 Team platform. An entire model can be shared over the cloud using A360 Team. So, for example, a single model that is being shared among architects, MEP designers and structural engineers can be changed by any party that has access to a pre-defined element of the project and the changes can be viewed instantly by the other parties as soon as they refresh their models with data from the cloud.

Why The Lowest Cost Outsourcing Supplier Will End Up Costing You

Many architecture companies are now turning towards outsourced CAD services to support their teams when resources are short to save funds, and maximize time. Unfortunately, many architecture firms focus on saving costs when sending work to an offshore CAD team Low cost outsourced CAD services can lead to poor work, delayed deadlines and a lack of project confidentiality.

Architectural industry leaders often use outsourcing for several reasons. Maximizing the use of an offshore CAD team allows your in-house team to increase and diversify their skills, without adding permanent members to the team. In cases where architectural drafting, modeling and BIM resources are short due to increased growth or employee transitions, offshore CAD and BIM teams are able to fill any gaps the team may feel in times of transition.

When searching for the right outsourced CAD service, assess the company and team members before moving forward, because low cost outsourced CAD services are rarely a good choice. Low hourly rates may mean the architectural models produced contain more errors, more project delays and potentially an incorrect design. By establishing the company’s track record and evaluating them for quality and expertise, the architectural design team can feel secure when giving their work to a qualified offshore CAD team.
