BIM engine software

Using Building Information Modeling (BIM) software can help reduce ambiguity and clashes during the design phase, but what can improve this more, is the spatial visualisation of the project from a person's perspective during design and before the implementation phase is initiated. Using a combination of game-engine and Building Information Modeling can be helpful in this regard.

Any concern regarding safety measures, spatial accommodation of construction equipment, the ability to estimate how long the project might take to build, conducting surveys and as-built drawings can be done via a game-like application like Vimert (the one illustrated in the image) or other simulators.

This method was used for problems that might occur in a rehabilitation project of an old building to be a headquarters, so the need for every element to be in location was paramount.

Another important aspect while managing such projects is the diversity of teams, there are teams for floor finishes, wall finishes, wiring, piping and HVAC systems.

Important lessons learned from this project:
