Data-Rich Models that Streamline Complex Building Systems

A Need for Precise Planning

During project development, miscommunication between contractors and various other stakeholders and a lack of integration can lead to duplication and clashes, which subsequently leads to expensive time-consuming delays and reworks. This often leads to budgets being broken and timeframes being extended. This can damage relationships with the customer and stakeholders and have larger ramifications. 

Perspective and Precision with Data Rich Modeling

DBM Vircon integrates intelligent data into millimeter perfect models of complex building systems encompassing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire services. Data-rich and exceptionally precise, our models provide you with the meticulous information you need to streamline and de-risk the entire lifecycle of a project, from design, planning and procurement, through to construction.

Models are coordinated with each service, along with the architectural and structural models, to allow for a fully coordinated design. Services models can be developed to include electrical systems, flow rates and system analysis, as well as parameters that identify system classification and type, such as: stormwater sewers, gas lines and communication and power containment.

Reduced Costs and Improved Tendering

By eradicating clashes and design errors early on, rework and delays are significantly reduced to improve scheduling certainty and slash project timeframes. This means your costs are reduced and you can provide highly accurate installation quotes to your clients, without risk of variations, for success in bids and tenders.

Streamline and De-Risk Your Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Services Project

Eradicate Design Errors

Integrating data from all design disciplines and streamlining team communication resolves poor design documentation and reduces clashes, so complex building systems are right—the first time.

Reduced Costs and Accurate Quotes

When eradication of rework, duplication and delays is combined with reduced design errors, scheduling certainty and slashed timeframes, costs are reduced and contractor quotes are accurate.

Slash Project Timeframes

An integrated model improves efficiencies across the project lifecycle through parallel workflows and reduced duplication, slashing your project’s timeframe by up to 12%.

Built-In Scheduling Certainty

With data-rich and exceptionally precise models, installation is never delayed by unforeseen rework or material delays. You can rest assured you’ll deliver on-time, without variations.

Improve Site Safety

Significant error and risk can occur during construction. Millimetre perfect modelling ensures minimal rework, reduces hours on-site and helps address safety concerns.

Smooth Maintenance Shut-Downs

When it comes to maintenance shut-downs, our animations reduce schedule slippage and safety risks, by ensuring all stakeholders (which can be hundreds of people on large job sites) are engaged.

Enhance Environmental Impact

Lean and repeatable designs consider operational issues as well as construction requirements to reduce waste and site clearances, deliver more efficient design and assist in community engagement.
