Tekla’s truly constructible building information models (BIMs) simplify your work processes and enable live collaboration, improving project results.  Find out how the constructible process goes beyond visualization to improve accuracy, productivity, and profitability.

Trimble’s BIM applications, available from BuildingPoint, deliver far more than true-to-life visual presentations and efficient clash detection. Their constructible models enable designers to create reliable, accurate, and feasible digital twins of onsite structures. Working with constructible models removes information barriers, synchronizes design and construction, and facilitates problem-solving.

Productivity, Safety, and Quality

In many ways, the construction industry hasn’t kept pace with improvements in information technology. BIM technology offers the opportunity to digitize tasks and transform workflows. Tekla’s constructible process drives productivity, safety, and quality, making business process re-engineering easier than ever.

Modern tools support more efficient design, construction, and maintenance tasks, benefiting all project stakeholders. Successful construction projects call for timely access to consistent information. The Trimble constructible process enables all project teams to create and access top quality BIM data wherever in the world they happen to be.

The constructible process consolidates people, technology, and information, enabling teams to deliver their best work on shorter timelines. Traditional, 2D paper plans, and the fragmented data they represent, are becoming a thing of the past.

Improve collaboration

Improve Collaboration and Information Sharing

Studies show that, on average, searching for project information consumes 13% of a typical construction project team’s workday. This unproductive time is avoidable. A truly constructible 3D structural model benefits all team members by presenting the project at any level of detail from a birds-eye view to the minute details of a specific connection.

As the pandemic winds down, industries are adapting to a new normal. As McKinsey’s The Next Normal in Construction report points out:

“Digital technologies can enable better collaboration, greater control of the value chain, and a shift toward more data-driven decision making. These innovations will change the way companies approach operations, design, and construction.”

Working with a genuinely constructible process enables project teams to share accurate information on construction projects of any scale from anywhere around the world. The BIM model provides the right information to the right people at the right time, 24/7.

Level of Detail Drives Constructibility

The best way to assess the constructibility of a BIM is to identify the level of development (LOD) on which it’s based. The LOD concept is an Associated General Contractors of America standard on the content and reliability of BIM applications.

By choosing Tekla’s constructible process, your business can improve project value and reduce risk. All stakeholders access the information they need in the appropriate format and level of detail.

Reducing Construction’s Carbon Footprint

The Bringing Embodied Carbon Upfront report from the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) found that the building and construction industry generates 29% of the world’s carbon emissions. For this and related

reasons, the WorldGBC is calling for the construction sector to reach a goal of zero emissions by 2050.

Trimble’s constructible process is part of the solution for greening the building and construction industry. Working with a 3D BIM model reduces waste by making buildings more efficient. Studying accurate data with digital modeling tools allows stakeholders to assess the feasibility of potentially greener materials.

Using Tekla applications, engineers can accurately estimate the carbon footprint of a structure long before onsite construction begins. There’s a growing trend toward applying BIM applications early in the construction lifecycle, as more designers realize that in-depth planning is vital to the green construction revolution’s success.

Support mixed reality

Support Mixed Reality Onsite

The constructible process also enables mixed reality to help onsite workers integrate digital plans with what they can see in the real world. This helps them navigate structures and avoid costly mistakes and clashes, saving time, materials and ultimately, money.

Support Safer Structures

The single source of truth held in a constructible model also supports health and safety. Stakeholders can evaluate potential safety risks and hazards during the design and construction processes. 

Virtual walkthroughs and simulations allow designers to adopt a more proactive approach to building safety, identifying potential hazards and implementing safety measures to manage risks. The clash detection a constructible BIM delivers further prevents workplace accidents and conflicts.

BuildingPoint Can Help
