4D BIM for Apartment Building

picture3

In just 5 days, VIATechnik completed the 4D BIM model of an apartment building that is 960,000 SF and 47 floors, with a construction schedule of 38 months. Fast turnaround was achieved through intensive coordination across multi-disciplinary teams, comprised of Revit modelers, P6 schedulers, Synchro 4D planners, and the client’s construction technology team. In the process, we implemented a project-specific, carefully-designed workflow to meet an aggressive deadline.

This 4D simulation was for a national General Contractor bidding on the construction of a high-profile apartment building in Dallas, TX. We delivered the visualizations needed to communicate the proposed site logistics and construction sequence to the owner based on an accelerated construction scenario. Value-add initiatives included schedule optimization and the incorporation of custom site logistics. This allowed our client to stand out during the bidding and proposal process.
