Managing Design Efficiency and Collaboration Issues with BIM
Shaw Architect had embarked on Building Information Modelling (BIM) since 2021 with the adoption of Autodesk Revit, Navisworks Manage and BIM Collaborate Pro. Since then, the Company has achieved BIM benefits such as performing design and drafting in one environment, obtaining architectural design flexibility, reducing design and drafting errors, and has managed to increase productivity and save time.
The main challenge for the BIM implementation for Shaw Architect is to ensure that their team members are able to work on a centralized BIM model on the cloud platform while ensuring proper project collaboration, keeping updates with project progress, and ensuring that all project data are properly backed up, stored and easily accessible to the management, technical users and non-technical users.
Shaw Architect explored the Autodesk Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) Collection and Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro solutions to their project management and collaboration challenges. They aim to reduce total drawing production time with the use of Autodesk Revit, manage clashes and coordination among project team members with Autodesk Navisworks Manage, and enable multiple team members to work on same project model at the same time.
Initially, Shaw Architect procured Autodesk Revit, Autodesk AutoCAD LT and BIM Collaborate Pro separately based on their project requirements. To ensure Shaw Architect achieved the most comprehensive and extensive BIM solutions, Autodesk Solution Provider 3DTech assisted Shaw Architect with the adoption to the Autodesk AEC Collection by explaining the benefits and the value for investment in subscribing to the Autodesk AEC Collection rather than purchase Autodesk software separately.
The adoption to BIM, particularly with the Autodesk AEC Collection and BIM Collaborate Pro, helps Shaw Architect to improve design efficiency, minimize design errors and reworks, and enables them to also identify design issues much earlier. Through a close working relationship with 3DTech, Shaw Architect are able to reduce technical downtime through fast response and first level technical support to resolve any technical issues.
As the current building and construction industry becomes more complex with tighter datelines, being innovative and efficient is crucial to ensure successful project delivery. With BIM, Shaw Architect had established themselves as one of the renowned architecture firms that are able to deliver complex projects such as Data Centers and High Rise Buildings.
