Session 5 – Stage 03

9.30 Stage 03: Manufacture and Assemble
Steve Wheller, Design and Planning Director, BAM Construction

Taking BIM to the workface: Using Field BIM on site to reduce waste, improve performance & deliver better buildings
75% of the value of construction is spent on site, yet only 10% of the technology is used there. Wasted time and resources and a fragmented approach are major Achilles heel across our industry.

This class will look at how BAM Construction are developing BIM and taking it to the workface. Through current project examples we will show how driving technology onto site can really make a difference to efficiency, reducing wasted time, effort and resources.

We will demonstrate, using live feeds to current sites, how this technology is delivering BAM Constructions’ commitment to delivering safer sites and better buildings.

We will explain the enablers and barriers to making full use of the technology.

Learning Objectives:

Understand a practical way to reduce waste, improve safety and quality
See how collaboration doesn’t stop when you open the door
Learn how effective communications and data management can be taken right to where it’s really needed

What does the customer/client see of the construction industry. “Do we finish with a full stop or a comma?”

The industries Achilles heel is waste.

75% of the value of construction is spent on site, yet only 10% of the technology is used

Improving workface use of of BIM at every stage.

Deciding who is the right person is to update the model. Sometimes it’s “up the chain and sometimes down”

The virtual building and move it to a virtual building site. Do not underestimate the power of a visualisation of a process. Logistics planning. Used on a day to day basis of quite “rudimentary” style of visualisation but you can communicate planned vs actual. Use in site meetings with the supply chain.

Commissioning strategy and zoning.

Mobile tech. Filing cabinet and specs for the site managers. Checklists at point of checking.
Understanding the project in the field. How to lay out temporary works. These to be integrated into the models. Working in an “unfinished” model.

Convert paper forms to live mobile documents that are live data capture methods. Processed at the source and not double handled.

Traffic management and health and safety. Looking at what you want to achieve and then finding the technology to help. Getting site supervisors back on site to actually supervise.

Real time dashboard reports and imagery across all projects. Weather delays.
All this is available to all. Customers included. Completely transparent and focusing on solving the problem and not hiding it.

Fast delivery of lists of issues.

Pushing commissioning data back into the model.

Recording actual performance and linking it back to the model

Just want to do what we do better. Embedding BIM into the everyday processes.

Benchmarking the benefits.
Finished on time and on budget – key, you would think this would be the “norm”
30% less design rework
1000 big problems avoided.
15000 team hours saved – measure handling times or even estimate it.
60000 less miles travelled.
A delighted customer and a happy team.

BAM are going to make a model whether they are given one or not by the rest of the team.

All site guys have an iPhone. They can’t use their desktops but they can use the apps on their phone. Less than a days training before being effective on site.
Putting the information where it’s needed and easy to get at.

Nothing is different. Nothing has changed. It’s just a different format.

Coordinating the fabricators data and substituting this in place of design intent. They want to coordinate what is actually going to be built.

Session 8 – Stage 04

14.15 Stage 04: Operate and Maintain
Andrew Pryke (Hons), Dip.Arch (Dist), RIBA, Managing Director – BAM Design, BAM Construct Ltd

So what’s in BIM for me? The Benefits of BIM for the Private Sector Client
This session will cover maximising benefit, providing certainty, de-risking and improving margins via the use of BIM for clients. All project stages of the project process will be analysed to demonstrate the value to clients and highlight that it’s not just for consultants and contractors. A glimpse of the future will also enhance current opportunities that BIM can bring in the UK. This session will assess the above demonstrating the advantages of BIM to increase margins via a ‘world-wind’ tour with case study examples of the 7 key benefits of BIM and examples of how BIM can be measured in achieving enhanced success in private sector clients’ businesses.

The 7 Key Benefits of BIM:

1. I.C.T (Inclusivity/Collaboration/Transparency)

Advantages of a culture of ‘working together’ – true BIM
Lean Construction – efficient and effective team working
Little BIM v Big BIM
A Project Team ‘rewards’ sharing based culture
2. Brief

Advantages of the early facilities management input – a story of a simple doorstop
Maximising the early input of the team’s input
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) and the benefit of the team’s early expertise on the project
Low hanging fruit – early wins for the client
3. Understanding

Communication – what does the project team think it’s doing – a traditional view
Use of the BIM model for the client to understand what they are getting
Early stakeholder buy-in
Quick sign-off
Fewer changes
Lower tenders
4. Asset Life Cycle Review

Facilities Management input throughout the project
Digital O+M manuals – What an advantage!
Point cloud estate reviews/ audits
Cobie and beyond
A ‘tablet’ way forward (augmented reality)
Google glass in the property industry
5. Milestone Certainty

Building twice – Where virtual has benefits over building actual first
Why 4d BIM creates transparency and certainty of operational continuity and occupation
Protecting what’s really important to the client
De-risking site activities via the BIM 360 Field
Using the BIM model to establish cash flow
6. Cost Certainty

Traditional v BIM Cost take-off
Lessons learnt from the aircraft and car industries
BIM libraries and comparison sites for materials – advantages at concept, tender and site works
Tagging and ensuring accurate interim payments
7. Sustainable Solutions

Health and Safety – Key facts, impact on branding + how BIM can improve safety
Meeting ‘Hangouts’ – minimising costs, improving resource, energy + carbon footprint
Energy performance – Making the right early decisions and maximising margins in the capital and operational costs of the building
Actual real time building use performance
Minimising site waste and improving cost savings
Learning Objectives:

Helping private sector clients to understand the benefits of BIM for their business
Showing clients how they can engage BIM in their business
Demonstrating how to measure the benefits of BIM in their business

You don’t have to be in the office to work.

You have to take risks to move forward.

Getting everyone in the project in the room. Social solutions.

Lower tender prices
De-risk unknowns
Fewer change orders
Early marketing to tenants
Certainty of occupation dates
Understanding of the project

Look at a rewards based system for projects. How to build using a timeline linked to cash. Better to have a 3d model with a timeline than a Gantt chart.

Dumping QTO and using Navisworks next gen (secrets out)

Awkward question about cost and rate transparency.

About Shaun Farrell

I have been involved in the construction sector since 1986 and over the years I have seen things change dramatically. Much of the change has been directly as a result of technology. This blog will be about the key combinations of People, Process and Technology. Any views expressed here are strictly my own.
