Owners (Builders & Developers), Operators
BIM has advantages throughout the life cycle of a project, but for Owners there are multiple long-range benefits to be gained. Financial savings from a total project cost perspective is likely the most attractive benefit for owners. Where do these savings come from? Many places!
Using BIM allows owners to look into the future and see what will actually be delivered in the form of a 3D model; the result is less change orders during construction, usually caused by clashes in building systems. Better design quality; buildings perform better through systems coordination and engineering analysis, allowing longer term operational efficiency. Scheduling (4D) and costing (5D) during the construction process are fully integrated within a BIM model, helping owners to make sound decisions based on multi-faceted, accurate real-time information.
Schedule compression created through the use of digitally assisted and off site fabrication helps create huge interest savings; BIM helps owners save money by delivering projects earlier. If a new opportunity for a project arises in the construction process, 3D modelling can help assess the merit of such a proposal. At the end of a project the owner has a comprehensive digital model of the building systems and components, which will aide in the handover process and or facility management.
General /Main Contractors
BIMStar is committed to ensure our clients optimize their investment throughout the construction process by fully implementing our BIM Modeling/3D Coordination technology expertise. Therefore, BIMStar has become a strategic partner to Construction Teams achieving tangible cost savings by performing BIM Construction Trade Coordination, Clash Detection Reports, BIM On-Site Support, 4D Construction Simulations and 5D Cost Estimates. These are just several of the many valuable services we can provide general contractors.

A client receiving a design proposal as a BIM model can see the design in 3D, and walk through the model to verify that their outcomes will be met when the asset is built.
If any of the client’s requirements have been misinterpreted this can be picked up, corrected and fully costed far more easily than would be possible when construction begins on site.
As the design of the asset progresses, increasingly rich information can be embedded into the model. Even at early stages in the design the model can hold much of the information which would previously have been stored in a fragmented manner across multiple schedules and documents.
This is important because the first phase of the project sets out the framework for all of the information on the detailed elements of the building, from initiation through to the end of a built asset lifecycle, including its demolition.
Working with a fully co-ordinated BIM model means that this library of information can be accessed, changed or added to at any stage of the job, becoming more and more robust as the designs are developed. The adoption of information protocols such as BS1192 help to ensure that information in the model is well managed and that control over ownership is maintained when information is co-created and shared.

So, the contractor receives a BIM model and begins developing his more detailed proposals for his tender submission. The value proposition for the contractor at this stage is clear: he has a model which contains a full set of data from each stage the project has already passed through, from which uncertainty and risk have already been reduced, problems have been worked out, simulated and analysed, which together avoid potential impacts which would traditionally bite later.

Trade Contractors (MEP, Structural Etc.)
BIM addresses all building trade involved throughout project lifecycle. BIM has proven beneficial for all building trades practically on number of projects. BIMStar has developed unique BIM deliverables for each trades such as Structural / Civil Contractors, MEP Contractors. BIM acts as core technology and process that integrates all trades in reality. BIMStar works with Main Contractors / General Contractors and also ensures that all sub-contractors are also made a part of process where they get BM advantage in their area of work.

The requirements for coordination is changing and most contracts are requiring BIM. To complete on these projects it is a must to understand how to build a BIM model. Contractors are considered the lightest users of BIM but have the highest outlook of the possibilities it can produce.
They believe they are the primary drivers on BIM related projects because they see the most benefit of the outcome, including green design projects. Real Designs works with you to help implement BIM into the project as well as help coordinate all areas of the building. Contractors commonly create BIM models based on their 2D design jobs and feel a great need to outsource these especially in the coming years.
When done efficiently you can expect a BIM project with less design errors from the Architects and the Engineers. Contractors are most likely to modify existing contracts that require BIM.
Not only is it a good way to help with designing but an excellent way for budgeting and pricing. BIM helps with quantity take-offs, estimating and scheduling of the materials and times to be delivered to the job site. More accuracy with square footage of coverage means less wasted material. Who wouldn’t benefit from that?
The goal of using BIM software is to help the estimator not retool the way estimating has been done in past years. BIM’s routinely used visualization capabilities helps minimize redesigns, RFI’s and coordination issues as well as helps with communication between all parties that are involved.

Our clients issue us 2D drawings using which we build a 3D Model, which is further used for quantity take-off and cost estimation. Gradually Building Construction industry has been adopting to BIM based process due to its inherent benefits such as accuracy and easiness to opt modification/changes. At this point of time, there are more pros than cons of using BIM for costing process.

Some of pros are as below.

BIM is being opted as global trend in construction industry and thus it is rather becoming mandatory to opt BIM for Cot/5D Process.
BIM user can produce customised automatic reports, presentations, particularly useful for high repetition.
BIM has inherent capability to maintain live linkage (i.e. Cost Geometry)
It eliminates errors and improved accuracy that traditional methods cannot deliver.
It can dramatically reduce measurement time
The costs are up to date with change in design making it continues and real time.
Offers greater accountability in management of projects

BIMStar has delivered Costing/5D serviced for various domestic projects. Our customer receives 3D Model as well as respective cost details that can be seen in relation with geometry on computer screen. BIMStar has been using advanced 5D BIM tool to deliver 5D services.

BIMStar has been working with Architects as their “Extended BIM Team” throughout Design Development till CD Stage. In many projects, we have provided BIM services till As-Built stage. On behalf of architects we have been providing below services to any project.

3D Modelling throughout SD-DD-CD Stage
Coordination Services
Producing 2D Architectural GFC Layouts, which are approved by Architect
Providing CAD detailing and conversion support on an ongoing basis to a number of homebuilders with whom our client works.
Providing ongoing architectural modelling and CAD drafting and detailing support to an architect managing a number of projects.
Preparing detailed site drawings for a global retailer.
BIMStar’s service are increasingly adopted on a dedicated team basis by architects. This allows for a team of architectural technicians to work for a sole client, allowing quality and efficiency to be harnessed through the continuity of working with a single client. This approach is currently used by architects not only for larger projects but also for smaller repetitive projects, such as housing and retail stores.
BIMStar’s team includes architects, interior designers, who are experienced users of specialist architectural design software, including Revit Architecture, AutoCAD Architecture and ArchiCAD.
MEP Consultants:
BIMStar provides MEPF Modelling & Coordination services on a standalone basis or as part of the complete design including the structure and the services. This is a part of our scope to validate the design and to ensure that the design is clash-free. Same clash free models used to extract coordinated drawings.
These 3D models can be created using BIM technology as an input into an overall BIM model for all domains. We currently use Revit MEP & AutoDesk Fabrication Suite for BIM modelling
Our BIM MEP services include.

MEP Modelling
MEP Coordination (Developing a spatially coordinated MEP model)
MEP Drafting
Composite Services Drawings (CSD)
Single Services Drawings (SSD)

Our combined MEP and structural modelling services include all aspects, such as HVAC CAD modelling, pipework CAD modelling, public health/plumbing/drainage CAD modelling, plant room design, electrical services modelling, concrete structure modelling, steel structure modelling and external building envelope modelling.
BIMStar’s modelling services are used to validate the design of MEP services within the context of the structure. In most cases, we are also asked to produce installation drawings and shop drawings that are taken from the MEPF model. We use Revit MEP and AutoDesk Fabrication.

BIMStar uses various BIM tools to develop a virtual model, the most important basis for a BIM environment. It is from this model that we derive 2D drawings, tables, and plans. Each planner uses his or her own software, making it crucial that the 3D model then can be exported to other programs. The model is the starting point of a project, not the final objective.

BIMStar offer BIM based services to,
Structural Engineers
MEP Engineers

Engineers can measure the value of trade-offs between the building elements (structural, electrical, mechanical), while also minimizing the conflicts between these elements resulting in energy savings. Engineering documents are mechanically synchronized, getting rid of errors and omissions, which results in better-engineered buildings delivered on time and on budget. 3D modeling speeds up the design stage, while still offering considerable advantages in accuracy and complexity. These models have the ability to easily design and manage complex air handling, electrical and plumbing systems, the widest variety of components and materials with an added ability to provide cross sectional diagrams, which are created and modified parametrically. 3D models can also be used to easily generate accurate and coordinated 2D versions.

Site Managers:
BIMStar effectively uses BIM functionalities that benefits site management thru site managers. This is mainly named as Field-BIM. One of the features of BIM in site management is Virtual design and construction. Virtual Design and Construction is the use of integrated multi-disciplinary performance models of design-construction projects to support explicit and public business objectives.

Virtual models are virtual because they show computer-based descriptions of the project. The Virtual project model emphasizes those aspects of the project that can be designed and managed, i.e. the product (typically a building or plant), the organization that will define, design, construct and operate it, and the process that the site management teams will follow.
These models are logically integrated in the sense that they all can access shared data, and if a user highlights or changes an aspect of one, the integrated models can highlight or change the dependent aspects of related models.
The models are multi-disciplinary in the sense that they represent the Architect, Engineering, Contractor (AEC) and Owner of the project, as well as relevant sub disciplines.
The models are performance models in the sense that they predict some aspects of project performance, track many that are relevant, and can show predicted and measured performance in relationship to stated project performance objectives.
4D: Time Construction planning and management:

BIM models provide a means of verifying site logistics and yard operations by including tools to visually depict the space utilization of the job site throughout a project’s construction. The model can include temporary components such as cranes, Lorries and fencing. Traffic access routes for lorries, cranes, lifts, and other large items can also be incorporated into the model as part of the logistics plan. Tools can further be used to enhance the planning and monitoring of health and safety precautions needed on-site as the project progresses.

Schedule visualization:

By watching the schedule visualization, project members will be able to make sound decisions based upon multiple sources of accurate real-time information. Within the BIM model a chart can be used to show the critical path and visually show the dependency of some sequences on others. As the design is changed, advanced BIM models will be able to automatically identify those changes that will affect the critical path and indicate what there corresponding impact will be on the overall delivery of the project.

Facility Managers:
BIM offers real time potential platform that can be used to track, update, and maintain facilities management information to support better planning, operations, and maintenance decision-making throughout a building’s lifecycle thru 3D BIM. In addition to basic and advanced BIM services, BIMStar offers unique Asset & Facility Management Solutions & Services to Owners/Operators, FM Companies.

Creating and Maintaining an As-Built/Record BIM Model
Building projects often undergo many changes during the construction phase as project teams respond to needed changes and unforeseen conditions. So, BIM models must be updated continuously throughout the construction phase to incorporate and capture changes introduced through RFI’s, as-built conditions, and so on.
Creating an accurate record model requires updates from all participants on the project team. Contractors must continuously update the model with constructed-related changes. Design teams must incorporate design changes and coordinate these with the contractor via RFI’s and change orders. Subcontractors and fabricators must provide the fabrication models used to produce manufactured components.
Upon substantial completion, the design team should integrate an as-built BIM for handoff to the facility owners and operators as part of the commissioning process.
Information Flow through the Building Lifecycle
The expanding use of BIM models for design, analysis, construction planning, 4D coordination, and fabrication creates an opportunity to capture and unify the information in these models into a record model of the as-built facility.
Rather than handing off printed documentation and static records during the commissioning phase, it is far more valuable to integrate and deliver a live BIM model of the project. The information in this model can support the day-to-day operations and planning needed to ensure that the facility continues to operate reliably and at peak efficiency.
This flow of building and operating information is actually cyclical. Information collected by continuously measuring, monitoring, and tracking history throughout a building’s lifecycle is in turn valuable for the planning and design of future renovations and improvements as well as for new construction projects. This real-world use and performance data is needed to accurately assess the performance of our designs and improve our predictive models.
Applications of BIM Models for Operations and Facilities Management

Some suggested applications of BIM for operations and facilities management include:

Programming — using a spatial program to efficiently and accurately assess a design’s performance and effectiveness relative to the spatial requirements.
Record Modeling — creating an accurate depiction of the physical conditions, environment, and assets of a facility.
Preventative Maintenance Scheduling — tracking and maintaining lifecycle information about the building structure (wall, floors, roof, etc.) as well as the equipment serving the building (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, etc.) to plan and schedule a program of maintenance activities that will improve building performance, reduce repairs, and reduce overall maintenance costs.
Preventive maintenance scheduling enables facility managers to plan maintenance activities proactively and appropriately allocate maintenance staff, as well as reducing corrective maintenance and emergency maintenance repairs. Using this information, facility managers can evaluate different maintenance approaches, analyze data to make repair vs. replacement decisions, and document the effectiveness of a reliability-centered maintenance program.
Building Systems Analysis — measuring how a building’s actual performance compares to design model predictions.
Asset Management — linking data in a BIM record model to a database of building assets to assist in efficiently maintaining and operating the facility. These assets often include the building elements, systems, and equipment that must be maintained and operated efficiently to satisfy the facility users’ requirements in a cost effective way. Asset management systems are used to support financial decision-making, short-term and long-term planning, and maintenance scheduling. Using information in a BIM record model, facility managers can: evaluate the cost implications of changing or upgrading building assets; track the use, performance, and maintenance of a building’s assets for the owner, maintenance team, and financial department; produce accurate quantity takeoffs of current company assets for financial reporting and estimating the future costs of upgrades or replacements.
Space Management and Tracking — allocating, managing, and tracking spaces and related resources within a facility.

BIMStar team is well versed with utilising various BIM based FM software’s in additional to integrating BIM with various FM tools. Successful BIM delivery for Facilities/Asset management is not about software, it’s about processes and understanding. It’s about closer cooperation with the design and construction organizations to throughout the project and at its handover. Key is the communication of information during the design and construction and at completion to enable the owner/occupier to manage the space and assets in operation and maintenance for the life of the building. BIMStar is unique in its knowledge and expertise across the fields of design, construction and management of the built environment. This places us in the ideal position to propose and deliver services and processes which bring advantages to all project participants
