VEC recognizes the demand for a better process and focuses on leveraging our construction experience and technical expertise to create project specific BIM Execution Plans (BEP) that are construction oriented, organized, and transparent.
We start new projects by thoroughly reviewing the contract BIM requirements, risks, budgets, CDs, existing conditions, schedules, survey control, and benchmarks. We work with each client to develop a BEP and coordination schedule that seamlessly integrates with project requirements and milestones.
We manage coordination on a simple platform that provides our clients with clear data to stay updated on progress. Our construction professionals keep project teams on track and focused on working towards a constructible model. This translates into clear and logical shop drawings, efficient layout, and reduced RFIs and COs during construction.
VEC approaches every project as its own unique challenge. The first step we take is reviewing available contract language to understand what BIM standards have been accounted for already and how those standards can be improved and reinforced. We make appropriate suggestions given the nature of the project. This allows our clients to set the stage right from the very beginning (sometimes before contracts are issued) and provides a powerful tool to lean on during difficult project negotiations.
Once we have helped establish strong coordination contract language, we begin a deeper dive into construction documents and schedules. We look for specific information that helps inform the development of a targeted BEP and coordination schedule. Understanding the site conditions, design, specific challenges, and how our clients want construction to flow is critical to setting up these documents properly. Our construction professionals are adept at drawing review and scheduling and can quickly identify the relevant milestones and critical path. We use that information to tailor a coordination schedule to fit our client’s construction schedule. With a strong project specific BEP and a schedule that fits with the construction schedule, we start the project off on the right foot and give the entire team clear direction.
After VEC has developed a project specific BEP and coordination schedule, we then begin setting up a coordination platform that ensures clear communication, accountability, and transparency. Well thought out shared coordinate systems, clear issue assignment/tracking, and strong communication are key. When the entire project team can easily understand the project status and who needs to do what next, the project benefits.
We don’t believe in having project teams arrive in a BIM meeting with nothing more than a semi-coherent list of viewpoints. We believe in analyzing the clashes and leveraging our construction experience to organize, assign appropriately, and elevate only the big issues.
VEC doesn’t stop once sign off is achieved. Our team works hand in hand with our clients to ensure that model shop drawings come in on time and meet expectations.We make ourselves available to resolve issues that may arise after coordination. We work hard to help your project succeed.
