A typical project will be headed by an Architect or a Domain Specialist. He will be supported by a team of engineering specialists having different skill-sets which complements, and at times compete with each other.Read More
Theoretically, a structure is a system of connected parts used to support a load, and structural design is the application of fixed and repetitive mathematical formulae. In practice, it is not as simple as it seems.Read More
Electrical design and consultation is a specialist job and a demanding profession which requires skills, domain expertise and adequate understanding of governing rules and regulations like IEC & IER etc.Read More
Loss of life and property due to fire has the potential to break a business. Therefore,fire protection strategies must go beyond the ‘minimum requirements’ specified in the codes and standards.Read More
Contract administration is at the core of any successful project and programme management strategy which requires significant design intent, intimate knowledge of the project and continued support throughout the project life cycle.Read More
Building Information Modelling is all about creating a virtual prototype which will become a reference for design and construction. This will increase the design performance drastically and provide for a better collaboration between designers of different disciplines and between design and construction teams due to the shared resources and efforts. Various scenarios could be easily created based on which informed decisions could be made and best scenarios adopted.
Other benefits are increased cost efficiency, more informed decisions from clients due to visual presentation of the 3D model, less change orders due to early collision detection during design process etc. as all details related to the building can be viewed by all team members at one location.
Our roots are firm on the technical delivery of the project as a holistic entity. We realised that digital collaboration will redefine the way projects are designed, managed and constructed. Hence, long back we have left behind the 2D platforms for design and collaboration and moved to 3D platforms for designing the complete project.
The 3D platforms have helped us tremendously to design more efficiently, improve project performance, and collaborate more effectively.
The result is designing with a “Holistic Project” approach and is instrumental in exceeding user requirements in terms of design optimisation, high water and energy efficiency, fire risk management and sustainability.
We use bundled 3D platform to carryout Architectural design, Structural design, Structural Detailing, Rendering, MEP services and digital collaboration.
The entire design team, irrespective of the their working discipline use the same application package and 3D model to ensure that all design decisions are considered together, collaborated and integrated seamlessly as a whole project. The changes at a future date become easy and revision of any part of the model is reflected across all disciplines. Any fouling could be detected immediately and corrective actions could be taken at the design stage so that there are no fouling issues of various project components at the site.
We have employed this approach successfully for many years and Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become an automatic outcome of our design process.
Running in parallel with the architectural & structural team, our utilities and services design team employ BIM to integrate all services from conceptualisation to construction and operation to provide predictability, scenario development and construction management. The most important take away from this process the Early Cost Certainty of the project.
