Goldberg Engineering understands the importance of innovation and technology in the construction industry. One of the tools that Goldberg has embraced is Building Information Modelling (BIM). Goldberg uses BIM to improve the accuracy of building design, facilitate collaboration between different disciplines, provide accurate and up-to-date information, and support construction and building maintenance.
By using BIM, Goldberg can improve the accuracy of building design, which results in fewer errors and omissions in the design, reducing the risk of rework and cost overruns. With BIM, Goldberg can create a digital 3D model of the building, which enables all stakeholders to visualise the design from different perspectives. This helps identify potential conflicts and issues in the design, resulting in fewer clashes and reduced risk of rework.
BIM also facilitates collaboration between different disciplines. Goldberg recognizes that in traditional construction methods, architects, engineers, and contractors often work in silos, leading to communication gaps and conflicts. With BIM, all stakeholders work on a single platform, enabling seamless collaboration, and reducing the risk of misunderstandings and disputes. By using BIM, Goldberg can ensure that everyone is on the same page, reducing the risk of miscommunication and delays.
Clash detection is another area where Goldberg has benefited from using BIM. Clash detection is the process of identifying conflicts between different components of a building, such as plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems. With BIM, all the components of the building are integrated into a single model, enabling automatic clash detection. Goldberg uses Autodesk Navisworks to detect clashes between components in real-time, reducing the need for manual checks and preventing potential conflicts from going unnoticed until construction has already begun. This results in fewer rework, cost savings, and improved project timelines.
