Project name: UTS Central | Industry: Residential & CommercialLocation: ANZ

The owners of Richard Crookes Constructions hired an external expert to drive their digital transformation. BIM is a key area of focus for them with a goal of 95% BIM adoption over the next 5 years.

Challenges

  • Providing technology solutions to meet the various stages of clients and project teams.
  • Optimizing the benefits of BIM across the project team and phases.
  • Providing data for optimal use throughout operations and maintenance.
  • Educating internal and external team members on the use of digitization including BIM, to optimize project benefits.

Solutions

  • Flexible system configurable to client and project needs.
  • Connected BIM providing access to models without the need for special authoring or even viewing software.
  • Involvement and planning, using a project-wide platform from the very beginning of conceptual design.
     

Results

  • There have been about 5% fewer RFIs and 3-5% fewer variations by using Aconex Connected BIM to bring the wider team, including the client into the model review cycles.
  • Variation review and resolution is about 50% faster due to the clear record of decisions and access to documentation.
  • The number of claims has been reduced an estimated 3-5% and the time spent on claim management has been reduced since it is fast and easy to access the full project history.
  • Aconex as a common data environment and tool for managing models, brings issues to the forefront early for fast resolution.
