What We Do
Construction Modelling & Coordination
Our Construction Modelling & Coordination team are highly skilled and work collaboratively with our clients to provide data rich intelligent models of their projects. We have experience in developing Architectural, Structural and MEP models.
Our Construction Modelling & Coordination team engage with clients across all professions within the construction industry, these include –
- Development Companies
- Main Contractors
- Specialist Sub-Contractors
We have extensive experience in providing our services to the following sectors –
- Life Sciences
- Sports Venues
We use Revit, Tekla Structures and Navisworks to develop detailed and coordinated construction models. We can engage with clients throughout any of the following stages of the project lifecycle;
We liaise with clients to develop a conceptual 3D model of their proposed development enabling them to visualise how their building will look on site and its impact on the surrounding environment.
We assist Design teams in producing 3D models and drawings for planning purposes based on their sketch designs. Preliminary material schedules can be derived from the model at this stage to determine early budget costs for construction.
Pre-Construction Design & Coordination
Through early engagement in the Pre-Construction Design & Coordination phase, ACS can work collaboratively with design teams creating Architectural, Structural, MEP and HVAC models to develop a fully coordinated federated model for construction. The benefits of this early engagement are;
- Early detection of design & coordination issues.
- Reduction of RFI’s and eliminating late design changes during construction.
- More accurate Tender documentation for project costing.
- Provides specialist sub-contractors with accurate coordinated design information.
- Reduction in the overall project delivery schedule.
ACS can produce comprehensive bills of quantities and material schedules from the 3D model to allow for more accurate project costing and early procurement of specialist items with longer lead times.
We work with main contractors and specialist sub-contractors to develop fully coordinated construction models and drawings. We have extensive experience in developing models to BIM Level 2 standards with clients engaged in the following sectors;
- Structural Steel
- Building Services
- Cold Rooms & Freezers
Fully coordinated and detailed working drawings are derived from the model to facilitate off-site manufacture.
Fit-Out & Asset Models
At ACS we are experienced in working with specialist sub-contractors on the fit-out of buildings, providing accurate 3D models and drawings to coordinate the services and furniture to meet end user requirements and specifications. The model can be further developed to include tagging of assets to create a complete model inventory of all equipment facilitating maintenance and replacement.
