One of the strongest things an architect can do to support the BIM process is to provide the contractor with a model that supports pre-construction. This video introduces the requirements of those models and briefly discusses how the contractor eventually uses the architect's model in the construction process.
- [Instructor] The phase of preconstruction … was introduced during the rise of BIM in the industry. … Previously, the contractor would have their subcontractors … develop coordination drawings in two dimensions, … which would then incur several changes … and revisions during construction. … With three-dimensional modeling, … these issues can be resolved digitally … prior to construction, reducing the need for RFIs. … Preconstruction is the phase typically managed … by the contractor where fabrication level … three-dimensional coordination occurs. … To do the work, contractors must disperse … and collect models of varying development, … link them together, and run clash detection scripts … within their software of choice, … which is typically Navisource. … The architect's responsibility to this phase … is to provide design intent models that can be a base … for fabrication-level models. … The architect should ascertain near the beginning … of the project the extent that the contractor …
