With a clear focus on customer satisfaction we offer our clients a reliable and quality clash detection and BIM coordination services. With our clash detection experts, we reduce the amount of change orders during construction through our risk free model inspection while initiating automated clash checks.
We provide a Coordination Summary reports or CSR after performing the clash tests. We use Autodesk Navisworks platform for clash checks.
The Coordination Summary involves all the Clashes incurred, Exact location of the Clash and a possible Solution for the clash. With the generated reports, our BIM Coordinators work closely with Architects, Structural Engineers and MEP contractors for clash resolutions.
With our Clash Detection & 3D BIM Coordination Services, we help our clients improve project planning and avoid budget overruns by reducing rework and material wastage during site execution.
What We Do
Our Clash Detection Process
Our clash detection services involves a 4 stage process starting with the preparation of the NWC Files from all the stakeholders involved in the project. i.e.; the NWC files from Architects, Structural Engineers and MEP Engineers are collected by our BIM Coordinator.
Clash Tests Templates are developed based on a Clash Matrix prior to the start of the process. The Clash Matrix defines the number Clash Tests, Clash Types (Hard or Clearance Clash Test), Clash Scenarios (First Order, Second Order & Third Order) etc.
A Clash Detection Workshop is conducted and Clash Tests are run based on the Clash Test Templates developed. Individual Clashes are identified and shall be categorized as New/ Active, Reviewed, Approved and Resolved.
Clash Reports are generated at the end of the process and is distributed among the project stakeholders to start with the clash resolution process.
Below chart describes our clash detection process.
The 3d models developed in Revit or any 3d Modeling software is imported to Autodesk Navisworks or Solibri Model checker to perform automated clash detection. Clash tests are conducted based on the agreed clash matrix and the tolerance requirements.
After performing automated clash tests, clash reports are exported to pdf or html format based on the project requirements. This clash reports serves as a basis for the clash resoultion process.
Clash Resolution starts with the hosting of a coordination meeting, where clashes are discussed based on the respective priorities. Usually first order clashes (E.g. Main Duct Vs Structural Column) are addressed first and subsequently clashes with less priorities are addressed on the later stage. The identified solution during the coordination meetings are documented for later reference and model updates.
