BIM Clash Detection & Coordination

A lot of time, money and resources are spent in the designing state of art buildings.
However, imagine the amount of losses that may incur because a lot of unaccounted
clashes and collisions go unidentified during design phase and are detected only when
the project goes on-site.

TrueCADD, helps companies and contractors apply BIM for clash detection and reduce
the risk of human errors during model inspections - thus reducing amount of change
orders during construction. This also serves as an important medium to save a lot of
time, money and resources.

We extend BIM support for:

a. Detection of hard and soft clashes within MEP systems

b. Listing the identified Clashes for action

c. Modification of 3D models to comply with conflict free designs

d. Clash free and streamlined installation of MEP systems

Ideally Clash detection should also be the first step for a remodeling or expansion
project. Our 3D clash detection reports with detailed mapping of every part of the current
structure, allows engineers to design additions and improvements around the existing
structure, and handover work to contractors.

Identification; inspection and reporting of clashes across architectural, structural and


MEP disciplines enables efficient execution of both new and as built construction
projects. As a standard practice we conduct the required quality checks at every level of
detail, and across all trades. For ease of use, clashes are represented and reported
visually. A 2D conflict identification report or a BCF file can also be created to analyze
and resolve clashes.

Our Clash detection service experience spans over a wide range of projects including
bridges and infrastructures, commercial facilities, industrial units, residential, retail and
institutional buildings, hospitals, airports, schools and universities etc.

To sum it up, clash detection helps you:

a. Identify and resolve clashes in a model and hence minimize the design conflicts
when project goes on site

construction process of a building.

We extend our BIM expertise to engineers working on projects across several residential
buildings, commercial complexes, schools, hospitals and infrastructural developments.

BIM Services for MEP Engineers

Offering Revit MEP BIM services is our core expertise. We provide BIM design, drawings
and 3D models with complete HVAC codes, plumbing, pipe work, fire safety and
electrical plan details to MEP engineers. BIM is an efficient information management
platform; it reflects any construction design changes through all the sections in real time.
This reduces the chances of clashes and keeps all the engineering teams on the same
page.

At TrueCADD, we target our MEP BIM services towards offering engineers a complete
and accurate overview of the project. However, these services can also be extremely
beneficial for MEP designers, contractors and MEP consultants. Engineers can use our
MEP BIM expertise to model, document and coordinate an array of elements like
mechanical, electrical, HVAC and fire protection systems. We convert 2D blueprints into
Revit, and further extend support through the scheduling and costing process.

BIM Services for Structural / Civil Engineers

13
BIM extends major support to structural / civil engineers involved in a construction project
by providing accurate details about the material and resources required for the
construction. This enables estimation of the required materials and hence allows
accurate cost estimation. Unlike a regular 3D model, BIM is a sophisticated technology
that provides structural engineers with building geometry, building properties and
geographic information.

BIM not only provides a realistic view of a building but also gathers accurate information
pertaining to a building and gives the engineer a clear perspective on the building's
lifespan. Structural engineers can thus easily visualize and plan a building construction
before the building process starts.

BIM for General Contractors

TrueCADD, extends BIM services for general contractors empowering them with better
control over their construction projects. Armed with BIM technology, contractors can
utilize accurate data, deliver better coordination and make better decisions. They can
effectively eliminate inefficiencies and plan their projects well to reduce cost and ensure
better outcomes in less time.

Outsourcing BIM services can generate profits for general contractors; it offers them
higher returns on investments.

General contractors can use the BIM based simulations and renderings for presentation
to their clients, the BIM based thoughtful design approaches can help them bag the best
projects.

BIM further enables accurate clash detection, even before the construction process
starts. This drastically improves construction planning and implementation of the project
thus helps complete the project with more efficiency in lesser time.

BIM allows off-site fabrication; this means that on-site fabrication process becomes more
accurate and faster. It also means that there are fewer clashes and hence less iterations
during construction, it saves a lot of expenses and improves yard management activities.

Our BIM expertise includes:

a. 3D BIM Modeling - Our company delivers comprehensive BIM 3D modeling


services for structural elements (steel, concrete, slabs, beams and columns) and
architectural elements (internal walls, stairs, doors and windows). We use Navisworks for
clash detection and iterate the models to eliminate these clashes. Our experts create 4D
BIM simulations that aid the process of MEP validation and BIM coordination.

b. BIM MEP Coordination - General contractors are becoming aware of the benefits
BIM offers. They are increasingly using the BIM MEP coordination services following BIM

14
3d modeling. At this stage, the clashes between MEP and the building structure can be
detected and eliminated. This thus helps the contractors save costs and manage the
onsite construction process with ease. Our team has expertise in Revit MEP and
AutoCAD MEP, using these they create 3d coordinated MEP models for the construction
projects.

c. Green BIM - BIM energy modeling has become immensely popular; the industry
needs to tap its potential to the maximum by introducing sustainability and energy
efficiency in every building erected. It is a promising technology for general contractors,
as it offers them better construction management through lesser energy consumption
and improved use of renewable/natural resources of energy. TrueCADD, believes that
saving energy is saving money, and is the need of the hour. Our company thus has a
dedicated team of environmental engineers and architects who deftly use the technology
for green building design and energy modeling.

We offer BIM as a part of the IPD (integrated project delivery) process hence enabling a
framework that allows reduced wastage and streamlines construction projects.

We have extended BIM services to an array of projects for residential buildings,


infrastructural facilities, commercial complexes, retail stores, housing schemes,
institutional construction for schools, hospitals etc.
