4D BIM - Construction Scheduling Services

We provide 4D BIM models by integrating 3D BIM models with precise information of building construction activities, schedules, and simulations for project teams.

We Provide Accurate and Step-by-Step Visuals of the Project Development

We provide 4D BIM model that includes all the time-related data of a project’s development, showing how it will be constructed and how both the structure and site surrounding will appear at each stage. 4D BIM incorporates the start and finish date data for the supply and installation of construction components and reveals the importance of them to the overall project. Our 4D BIM model will project all the construction schedules which will help to negate last-minute on-site design coordination and rework, ultimately eliminating waste from the delivery process and speeding it up.

Project planners and teams can use the 4D BIM model as it not only gives the overall project simulation but for a specific element or work area, it could also include details like lead time, construction and installation period, sequencing or dependency with other areas, curing and drying allowance and other interdependencies. With the 4D BIM in place, project teams- owners, planners, architects, engineers, contractors, etc. can streamline the cost base of the project and increase their capacity, whilst reducing overall delivery costs for clients. Also, 4D Construction Scheduling Model provides the bidders with bid documents based on the coordinated model that can be constructed within the scheduled timeframe barring unforeseen changes.

Three Types of 4D

Site Logistics Model

Helps in planning clear work areas looking for trade overlap as well as helping with on-site material storage coordination.

Project Timeline Simulation

It shows the actual site conditions when installation takes place. It applies to anything that needs to move through a construction site.

Equipment Routing Animation

Adding geometry to visually track tasks or site readiness requirements that cannot be easily communicated in a 3D building model

Benefits of 4D BIM Services

  • Provides fast and accurate feedback on timescales and methodologies
  • Provides a clear impression of how the asset will appear, rather than having to envisage that from plans or Gantt charts
  • Improved lead time identification which can reduce total construction duration
  • It is powerful tool for communicating the impact of built assets
  • Reduces overall delivery costs for clients
  • Enhances coordination and eliminates rework
  • Provides rapid feedback on design or methodology changes to the teams
