Upgrades and changes are essential parts of the lifecycle of any type of building. As technology keeps advancing and standards of living change too, individuals and businesses demand a lot more from the structures in which they work and live. Wired internet and HVAC infrastructure are just a handful of relatively new additions for building owners to consider strongly, and making room for these improvements is not always easy. Core drilling contractors implement all types of updates in existing construction, creating space for plumbers, electricians, and other professionals to perform some much-needed services. However, your core drilling contractor can’t work alone. Building information modeling, or BIM, with clash detection allow for core drilling contractors and other construction professionals to interact very seamlessly with each other, completing their projects with fewer complications. Read on to learn more!
Usual Responsibilities of a Core Drilling Contractor
Core drilling contractors help facilitate building upgrades by drilling a set of round holes in concrete slabs. They use specialized equipment to make some room for new plumbing lines, electrical wiring, and phone lines. Core drilling contractors work with architects, general contractors, and tradespeople to determine where they need to cut and, much more importantly, where not to cut. Poorly-planned coring can help damage structures that are already set up, and concrete-cutting contractors have to know where plumbing and electrical equipment are located. This is where BIM and clash detection comes into the equation.
Clash Detection and BIM Helps Your Core Drilling Contractor to Complete the Job
Building information modeling involves creating detailed and accurate plans of a structure. Engineers, architects, contractors, and many more use BIM to compare plans with one another, ensuring that the work they’ve outlined won’t interfere with anything. Points on a model where these interferences and incompatibilities occur are known as “clashes,” and clash detection involves finding these issue areas and adjusting them. Clash detection could happen at any stage, thorough modeling before any construction allows crews to make any necessary changes before big complications occur, but a few models might have to be adjusted after work has already commenced within the field. Even in the event of unexpected issues or difficulties, clash detection is a serious asset that helps ensure any changes to the plan won’t interfere with other facets of a project.
