Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Our team is passionate about the design process and pride ourselves on working in a collaborative environment to get the best results for our clients. Drawing from our collective and broad experience, we bring a unique skill set to the industry.
Our highly skilled BIM team are using the latest technologies to streamline the process from design to fabrication on site. Digitally modelling our designs to a high level and coordinating with our in-house fabrication detailers, allows us to identify and mitigate issues throughout the design process. Through this process we have been able to significantly reduce fabrication and construction time frames on several projects from residential dwellings to high end commercial projects.
Tetrad Consulting’s team has vast experience in the field of BIM, from manufacturing factories requiring a high level of coordination and modelling of equipment and operation elements to large entertainment complexes with huge amounts of services coordination and precise modelling.
What is BIM?
In short, BIM is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a building facility. Beyond the obvious benefit of thorough coordination, Tetrads BIM process focuses on some of the less advertised components. Accurate and faster Tender time being a key element. Using an accurate modelling approach (and higher LOD level) Clients gain benefit through great confidence in material quantities allowing more accurate tenders and subsequently less variation risk to the project.
What is LOD?
LOD stands for Level of Detail
Additional benefits the BIM process can bring to your project.
- More detailed pricing and Tender
- Changes made easier
- Clash detection
- Reduced cost and mitigated risk
- Faster process/ onsite earlier
- More developed drawings for more accurate Tender
- Shop drawings can begin sooner
- Client owns 3D asset for future use
Time frames are also a big factor in the tetrad BIM process. Clients can decide how far they want to take the process depending on the clients needs. Tetrads team offer full fabrication (LOD400). With this in-house ability we can streamline the delivery process to see contractors starting on site much sooner.
