Employing Scan to BIM for Infrastructure Projects

Employing Scan to BIM for Infrastructure

Utilizing Scan to BIM enabled us to get a holistic view of the entire network which included wastewater services, gas pipelines, electrical lines etc. With proper information and enhanced visualization of the location of both above-the-ground features like sidewalks drains, traffic lights etc. and the underground features like the gas pipelines, water lines etc. the reconstruction was planned in a manner that the existing services were not disturbed or damaged. All clashes that were caused as a result of expansion and reconstruction were aptly detected and resolved before commencing onsite work.

Moreover, allowing to know the exact condition of these features enabled the civil engineers to choose what needed to be replaced during the reconstruction and which could be reused. This reduced the over-project cost and is also more sustainable. The accurate BIM model provided information that added value at practically every phase of the reconstruction and expansion process. The fact that we were precise in creating the data-rich BIM model, ensured that the information provided to the onsite project managers and ground workers was also accurate and detailed. It enabled them to carry out the process in stipulated timeframes without facing significant hurdles.

Utilizing Scan to BIM could provide an exact representation of the infrastructure’s existing condition and can ensure a streamlined reconstruction. It could also assist in planning and creating the conceptualizing design that is needed for presentation and government approvals. It also provides a common platform for all the involved stakeholders to share information and resolve any conflicts. The true cost of miscalculation could significantly cause monetary and time repercussions which can be drastically reduced with accurate BIM models.

Scan to BIM is the process of 3D laser scanning a physical building, space or site and creating an accurate digital representation for it from the point cloud data. Scan to BIM Services has enabled the AEC professionals to properly design, capture and model the as-built environment. Though the conventional deliverables of BIM utilized for renovation or reconstruction stay the same like refined workflows, optimized efficiency, and enhanced collaboration there are also added layers of complexities and new considerations added due to the existing “As-built” structure or a building.

Additionally, utilizing BIM Services for Infrastructure projects facilitates design evaluation wherein the civil engineers can conduct simulations and analysis thereby designing for constructability, sustainability and road safety. Finally, the same BIM model which is used for reconstruction and expansion can be updated with any onsite changes and be utilized for operations and maintenance.
