Our approach to BIM begins with an extensive project constructability review and design-assistance process, which provides trade specific knowledge and experience to aid the design team. This process generates the project design parameters that inform our 3D model development. Constructability review and design-assistance continue throughout the modeling and coordination process as additional conditions are identified and resolved.
Ours goals are to impeccably detail and coordinate our work to eliminate unforeseen conditions that cause delays and additional costs to the project. We strive to create efficiencies for our work, as well as the project as a whole, through maximizing coordination, prefabrication opportunities, and value analysis.
Our integrated field staff prescribes their construction preferences in means and methods as well as project details that become incorporated in the project. We then work with the other trades to identify clash issues and seek resolutions.
This team involvement allows KHS&S to propose framing changes to accommodate trades and fulfill the design intent. By addressing change orders and request for information (RFIs) as they are presented, we can get an early view of problems before they arise, either correcting them or bringing them to the attention of the field staff.
KHS&S has used BIM on more than 200 projects. These include some of the most complex construction projects in the world.
