BIM (Building Information Modeling)
Would you like to be able to visualize your project in hyperrealistic 3D models before it even begins? What if you could validate the work on your site as it is carried out and cut down on loss of time and materials? Once the construction has been completed, how about ensuring optimal building management using a breakdown of the works and a 3D model of the construction?
BIM methodology can make all this happen for you. This process, the result of advanced industrial research, has been one of QMD’s most important assets since 2015. Our clients really appreciate the approach, which has been mastered by our teams. It allows our contractors to perform quality checks, look ahead using 3D modelling and track the project progress with unrivalled precision. We always strive to innovate so use BIM processes on all of our sites.
What is the BIM process?
BIM (Building Information Modelling) is a methodology that uses technological platforms to create intelligent digital mockups and share data. BIM allows users to converge different models on a building site and fosters a collaborative approach. BIM also facilitates decision-making by quickly linking various stakeholders (architects, engineers, general contractors, specialized contractors, clients). BIM offers virtual construction because you can visualize yourself in the building.
“ These technologies help construction professionals by creating 3D models that can be used throughout the project.”
This advanced technology is highly useful during every stage of the works. Most importantly, it makes it possible to truly evaluate the feasibility of the project, guarantee an optimal quality-price ratio and draft precise action plans. In this way, BIM technologies allow QMD to achieve one of its primary objectives: to offer tailor-made solutions while taking economic stakes into account.
Throughout the construction phase of the project, the use of 3D models allow for more efficient coordination between stakeholders and the models can be tweaked in real time, which shows the exact extent of the progress to date. BIM also allows QMD to guarantee that the project will meet client expectations.
Our mobile technological solutions allow us to improve the quality of information, productivity and efficiency on our sites. For example, we can now access changes in real time and view the latest versions on a tablet or smartphone. We no longer have to wait for plans or responses.
Powerful software such as the BIM 360 suite, Revit and Navisworks allow for more fluid collaboration with professionals, specialized entrepreneurs and our clients. Several processes can be rationalized and optimized using real-time updates and communications, which fosters a higher level of collaboration.
