3D Coordination is the process of integrating the architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering trades into one comprehensive model. Utilising Realserve’s 3D Coordination services with a Clash Detection Plan service will identify any design conflicts or inconsistencies between components of different disciplines.
Design integration using 3D Coordination
With the adoption of new technology across the construction industry, engineering teams need to transition from 2D design to 3D modelling.
With the ever increasing pressure to complete projects faster, there is a need to adopt an integrated approach. Adopting 3D coordination into the design process is one of the first steps to achieve these outcomes.
The benefits from 3D coordination include;
- Helping reduce the errors made by design team members and construction teams.
- Improving the efficiency of building construction.
- Meeting world-class quality consistently with a streamlined workflow.
- Reducing the waste of construction material and thereby saving on the cost of material.
- Utilizing the most advanced technology available to precisely and quickly create plans, visuals, reports and more for your property.
When you combine this process with our Clash Detection Service you can not only create the most efficient workflow across trades but ensure developments will integrate seamlessly to save time and money.
Our typical process
Before 3D coordination can be complete any 2D design drawings of different systems will need to be converted into a 3D model. Realserve can achieve this through our range of 3D Scanning & Modelling services.
Once all systems have been accurately modelled Realserve can begin the coordination process that is achieved using Autodesk’s Navisworks software. All the individual design models are combined into a single as-designed model. This as-designed model can then be used to complete Clash Detection as well.
Realserve can provide access to this coordinated model through our Building Information Modelling (BIM) service which will allow the design team to reduce the number of Request for Information (RFI’s) associated with a normal design process. As re-designs occur, the coordinated model can be updated and further clash detection completed.
All our outputs are then put through an intensive QA process via an independent audit to ensure that what we have captured is delivered to the highest levels of accuracy possible.
THE 3D COORDINATION 'LAYERS'
See some of our case studies
A national supermarket brand needed to upgrade their loading docks with multiple sites around Australia. See how we used 3D building scanning to help achieve this
In today’s modern era, the practice of relying on paper-based drawings and floor plans for a hotel refurbishment has become obsolete, with architects increasingly turning to modern workflows to maximise on the benefits that 3D scanning and modelling can offer
To assist with the planning of a refurbishment program aimed at enhancing visitors’ experience at a shopping centre, Realserve survey technicians provided 3D building scanning services in Adelaide’s south.
Realserve routinely engages in the practice of 3D scanning buildings that are used for retail tenancies. Our surveyors in Adelaide were engaged to produce a Revit Model and Point Cloud for a free standing restaurant in a shopping centre car park
The Realserve surveyors in Sydney were engaged by Lendlease to create new retail tenancy documentation in their shopping centre at Erina Fair. Instead of using traditional survey methods we used a Leica BLK to create a 3D scan of the 130 square metre area.
Realserve sent a team of surveyors to Launceston to create a 3D Revit Model for a heritage building in the city to help facilitate a refurbishment program.
