BIM is a tool that not only helps in saving money during the design and construction process, but the models that are developed can be utilized throughout project lifecycle. BIM models can also be valuable to the facilities and maintenance teams, when developed keeping future operations of the building in mind.
Neilsoft helps in developing BIM standards, specifications and templates to ensure robust integration with existing/future data and project management services. Our professionals can help your team to use BIM as an effective tool throughout the project lifecycle, including master planning, program analysis, project definition, design & construction, and facility management.
Program Managers can utilize BIM at the beginning to assist them in the project definition phase. Neilsoft develops BIM Models to support the initial master planning and program analysis. This development continues during the blocking & stacking diagrams phase, right until the conceptual design is finalized. Using our BIM standards related services will ensure that the BIM database is correctly developed and established during all phases of development, with required updates throughout the project lifecycle.
Construction Managers use our service to ensure that the BIM models include detailed specifications for various construction related requirements, to help them throughout the actual construction phase.
Neilsoft understands the end-to-end requirements of the Construction Manager, Program Manager & Facility Manager during the design & building processes, and hence is well equipped to support the overall BIM requirements from the owner’s perspective.
If you’re planning to use BIM for a specific project, you invariable will be required to develop BIM standards. Development and implementation of BIM standards is a highly tedious and complex process. Unlike CAD standards, BIM standards require knowledge of the BIM database and how it will integrate with not just your systems, but all the project systems and various database requirements. Neilsoft can help you in identifying commonalities from various BIM standards and compile them to produce data that you can use to develop and implement BIM standards that work for you.
Neilsoft provides BIM peer-level review services for model assessments, to architects, builders and owners. Our methodology leverages our continuous experience in developing BIM models for our clients. As an architect if you receive a BIM model from another designer, Neilsoft has developed appraisal services which delineate the key requirements from the model, to create an assessment spreadsheet that helps in determining if the specific BIM model meets your needs or if significant rework is required.
We do the same for builders receiving design models and owners receiving builder models. Neilsoft's model assessment service is an efficient way to determine the model’s adequacy and accuracy, to insure successful BIM integration.
