5D BIM – Cost Estimation & Quantity Take-off Services

5D BIM – Cost Estimation & Quantity Take-off Services

We provide a 5D BIM model that integrates the design, schedule, and cost of the project. We help project teams to be involved in the full conversation of the project rather than working in isolation and waiting for their turn to provide information about the project. With the help of Common Data Environment, our BIM model services can automatically generate quantities that provide more accurate data to the estimator.

5D BIM Provides Accurate Cost Estimates and Quantity Take-offs as per the Design and Construction Schedule.

We understand the importance of taking off measurements and quantities from a set of drawings and how time-consuming it is. Our 5D BIM model relies on Common Data Environment where all the project teams can collaborate and integrate their information. With the data connected to the 5D BIM model, the quantities and cost of the project get dynamically readjusted so that it is easier for the owner, project manager, general contractor, etc. to manage the cost of the project. Our 5D BIM services also provide overall cost estimation of the project by accurately calculating quantity takeoffs and material estimation by calculating every building product used and its costs for purchase, fabrication, assembly, and installation.

At United-BIM we help the Contractors by providing a list of material quantities alongside a visual design model (BIM) to see the effects on construction costs. Our 5D BIM Services enables the General Contractor to extract BOMs, generate RFIs, construction document set for renders, and provide a competitive bid for the project. Our team uses Revit software as it allows them to show the immediate impact the changes in building materials might have on the costs. It makes it easier for our clients to work with quantity takeoffs and cost estimates as they have complete information about the quantities that the project will need.

5D BIM Services Include

Cost Estimation

Generate accurate quantities of various building components to calculate the cost of the entire project at current purchasing rates.

Quantity Take-Offs

Generating accurate Bill of Quantities (BOQs), Bill of Materials (BOMs), Cutting Lists & Quantity Take-offs.

Common Data Environment (CDE)

A platform for all the project teams to collaborate and exchange their feedbacks.

Real-Time Cost Adjustments

Updating the model automatically changes the construction costs in real-time.

Benefits of 5D BIM Services

  • Better visual and data modeling capabilities to understand the project scope as the 5D BIM model is based on the design, materials, site conditions, phasing and other crucial parameters.
  • Helps in funding decisions as the team can have a better understanding of the project design, schedule, and factors drivers for costs. This helps project stakeholders to develop a reliable cost estimate for the entire project.
  • Automatic generation of Quantity take-offs eliminates the tedious task of manual labor which reduces the possibility of errors. It becomes easier for estimators to provide competitive bids for the project.
  • Accurate generation of BOQs and BOMs helps increases the efficiency of procurement and purchasing process for prefabricated building projects.
  • With the help of 5D BIM, project teams have construction drawings with detailed information of BOQs and BOMs.
