EDGE-GTS provides technical resources and staffing to assist with the integration of BIM technologies into the planning and design process of your project.
BIM modeling improves efficiency in scheduling and sequencing of equipment installation and building erection. BIM modeling also allows architects and engineers to easily work together throughout the planning and design phases, resulting in more accurate project designs, cost projections, and scheduling. Project managers are empowered to more easily identify blockers and other delays earlier in the process so they have the opportunity to address them ahead of time.
When teams and trades can collaborate and communicate more effectively throughout the entirety of a project, delays and rework are far less likely to occur. Better project information, collected from highly accurate 3D laser scans or multi-disciplinary construction models, minimizes human error. And, by reducing task silos, increasing transparency, decreasing design discrepancies and modeling all subsystems together, preventable issues are avoided later onsite. Our clash detection tools identify any clashes or overlapping of services, allowing resolution during the planning stages and minimizing the chances of subsequent delays or rework.
Design review is one of the more significant benefits for digital twins and calling out constructability issues. By assisting with construction coordination, digital twins help the owner, designers and contractors visualize change orders on the fly. Architects, engineers, contractors, project managers and more can easily access and review BIM data and documents whenever and wherever they need it.
Functional teams can perform safety training, coordinate schedules and perform site assessments easily from any device. Role-based access allows members from various teams and trades to easily collaborate. Tag, share, and effectively communicate, saving time, resources, and ensuring the most accurate final deliverables. Markups and redlines can be shared within and between teams, centralizing communication and tracking of issues through to completion.
Digital twins created with our 3D laser scanning technology and 3D models will precisely document site elements for inspection and analysis, meaning teams can view accurate visualizations of the site without having to leave their desks. Collaborate while onsite, from the office, online or offline, and from any device.
Minimal equipment and staff are required for our team to access your site. The documentation we create can be then be shared across teams and trades. Teams can analyze site conditions and begin planning before crews are onsite, minimizing safety hazards for populated construction spaces.
The data collected and developed through our laser scanning and post-processing workflow can be used to create life safety drawings and emergency response/crisis management plans that can be shared with staff, emergency responders, and the public. Better equip first responders with a detailed 3D walkthrough of your site or building easily accessible within seconds during response through a weblink on any web-connected device.
Reduce time needed to create building layouts without compromising the ongoing functionality of the property. Digitize your assets, operations and safety procedures with cloud based, virtual data, and replace time-consuming file folders and spreadsheets.
Using the data collected during the laser scanning process, our team can then develop a highly accurate 3D virtual tour of your site. Customize the tour for your specific needs and share the weblink by embedding in your website, share across social media, via email marketing campaigns, and more.
