Challenges

  • Scanned data was inconsistent, lot of inputs were missing and some parts had to be recreated solely based on engineering assumptions
  • Management of massive volumes of scanned data
  • 360 degree image for an over building view was missing in the input files
  • The process was time consuming and work had to be completed in pressing deadlines – within 14 days

Solution
All the scanned point clouds and images in .rcs format were imported to Revit, and converted into a BIM with LOD 300 with all the Architecture & Structure & Equipment spacing details.

Benefits

  • Ever changing spatial requirements in the mechanical house, were addressed efficiently each time due to the availability of an information rich BIM
  • Information rich intelligent BIM, provided a thorough documentation of the as built structure
  • As a result new equipment set up became easy and clash free
  • The management managed to save a lot of cost and time in the process of catering to the changing spatial requirements

Engineering Solution:

  • The work started by dividing teams to work in shifts so that the project gets processed 24×7
  • All the files in.rcs format were imported into Revit and divided into sections
  • A model file was set up and modeling was done with 10mm accuracy, and LOD 300 as requested by the client
  • Detailed architectural, structural and equipment spacing information was included
  • The missing sections were recreated based on engineering assumptions
  • At this stage, communication was set and approvals were taken from the client for the restructured parts for which input data was not available.
  • With efficient project management, point cloud data was converted to BIM and delivered in a record time frame of 13 days.
