Building Information Modeling in MT Højgaard (BIM)
At MT Højgaard we systematically employ BIM for our construction and civil works projects. BIM gives the parties involved in the project an overview, and the opportunity to share information digitally with each other. BIM provides a sound basis for decision-making throughout the construction process and has value for the operation and maintenance of the completed building.
Visualising the construction process
BIM stands for Building Information Modelling, and is used to structure and share information from the construction process with the 3D model as the pivotal point.
3D models give us an overview of our construction and civil works projects even before we break ground. Once the project is up and running, we use BIM to visualise, plan and manage the process.
BIM gives us a method of describing the structure of the building or plant, as well as its components and materials, with all the relevant information and properties, all of which is compiled in the BIM model.
The digital compilation of all the processes and information in the construction project provide an overview for all parties involved in the project, and the model ensures that the right people get the right project information at the right time. All in all, it means a better construction process for all concerned.
A comprehensive digital overview of a project enables us to foresee potential challenges in a construction project. It also allows us to ensure a sound basis for the construction, and to optimise the process and time schedule.
Furthermore it enables us to minimise the risk of reworking and its associated costs, as well as exercising basic collision control – altogether benefiting the finished result.
Valuable operation and maintenance information
The BIM model contains all the relevant information on the construction project.
This creates a sound basis for the subsequent operation and maintenance of the completed building, since the building owner or operator can benefit from all the information that has been compiled during the course of the project.
