BIM & VDC
BIM for Masonry (BIM-M)
Optimize purchase order estimates, create precise shop drawings, review mockups, address RFIs, plan accurate layouts, perfect rebar placement & sizing, confirm heights & coursing, assess equipment needs, and streamline site logistics.
The objective is to give the masons a seat at the table with engineers and architects during construction coordination to resolve any constructability issues and ultimately reduce rework.
Getting Started with BIM-M
Achieving project success relies on mason contractors fully embracing the BIM process. Our tools and teams will be an integral part of your process. At VIATechnik, we are well-equipped to assist you in developing a long-term strategy and creating a comprehensive BIM-M execution plan.
Utilizing 3D models results in better walls, reduced waste, and minimized contingencies. Modeling increases the amount of information masons have access to, such as other MEPF elements and how they interact with the walls. Additionally, 3D modeling enables you to create models for both 4D (scheduling) and 5D (cost) purposes.
BIM-Masonry Shop Drawings
Masonry shop drawings generated from BIM-M are detailed representations of how walls should be assembled and where penetrations are located. VIATechnik’s BIM to shop drawing process facilitates precise planning, coordination, and communication among all trades. These drawings reduce errors, and ensure that masonry walls are detailed accurately and efficiently, ultimately resulting in a positive return on investment.
Masonry Contractor Deliverables
Maximize the success of your masonry project with our BIM-M solutions. Our advanced software ensures precise material estimates and purchase orders. Shop drawings give clear wall & rebar assembly directions, and virtual mockups confirm design accuracy, minimizing errors. BIM-supported RFIs clarify design ambiguities, promoting smoother builds. Strategic planning optimizes materials, rebar positioning, and ensures design-compliant height & coursing.
