BIM in practice: Good reasons to agree on the way you model

In an efficient precast element production process, staff on the factory floor receive ready-to-use model information for fabrication directly from the detailer. This article outlines how model information flows through the precast production process, resulting in successful delivery at record speed.

In an efficient precast element production process, staff on the factory floor receive ready-to-use model information for fabrication directly from the detailer. A standardized model creation process enables smooth, efficient collaboration between the detailer, production planner, delivery and site installation crew. However, precast producers and contractors are not necessarily able to use model information effectively if their content is not consistent, but an entire construction project can benefit from good-quality 3D model information. This article outlines how model information flows...
