Software modelling has been improving since 1999, along with common standards being formed. These standards allowed quality checking through a number of industries but construction seems the natural industry to focus on. Fundamental challenges of money and material waste could now be solved including 3D visualisation and walk-in functionality to reveal potential clashes, flaws and weaknesses. This software available to us today allows us to quantify the amounts of building materials needed and provides easier maintenance once the building is ready.
Here, Solibri introduce their model checker which helps you to find and visualise issues and problems before and during construction. It is backed-up by proven case studies, such as the one from Skanska, explaining how the software has enabled the efficient and accurate collection of data and helped to deliver fully co-ordinated buildings.
