What to expect during the event
BIM is an indispensable tool for executing successful construction projects. However, we must ask ourselves: Are we adequately checking the quality of our deliverables? In the face of tight deadlines and unforeseen challenges, it becomes essential to possess a well-defined guideline to monitor and control our work. Regardless of the use case or project phase, the essence of quality checking remains the same; we just need to adjust the degree of detail of our control accordingly. Scope: from requirements to budgets. We need to understand the scope and uses of a model. Will it be used for area control, design, or quantities? Each use case has a checking method that can be customized for different projects. Plan: from design to facility. After defining the scope, we need to adapt to each phase of a project. The level of development in the design phase is different from that during execution. The more detailed the models, the more 'zoom in' we must apply in our checks. Communication: reporting project status. Clear communication about the project KPIs is crucial for project success and the teams focusing on what is important. A clear reporting system aids in understanding performance and gives us insights into a model’s progress. Quality: applying universally beneficial practices. Enhancing the checking process is as important as reviewing the quality. We must learn from successful strategies and, more importantly, from our mistakes. These lessons should be applied continuously to improve our quality control process.
