The quality and timely delivery of project information is a key factor in ensuring that ADC projects are a success. Poor quality, late of out of date information can lead to delays, non-recoverable costs and rework that could have been avoided if Project teams were working from the most up-to-date and reviewed information available.
Over the last few years, ADC has invested in systems such as Procore and Cheops to ensure the our project teams can access the latest revisions of drawings and project information; how ever there can still be issues with information that has not been properly co-ordinated, leading to unforeseen and costly errors on site.
For these reasons, ADC has committed to invest in a new industry recognised technology called Building Information Modelling (BIM). BIM focuses on the consultant supply chain, creating virtual three-dimensional models that encompass the consultant’s specialty i.e. an architectural model, a structural model, a services model and a civil engineering model.
These models can then be brought together to create a true representation of the actual build (a co-ordinated model) which is then tested in a virtual environment for compliance to ensure that these unforeseen issues during the production period can be avoided.
ADC believe all projects should be built in the virtual world before we arrive on site, to ensure we have ironed out any issues and the build goes as soundly as possible.
