Structural and Facade 3D Modeling with Clash Detection and BIM Coordination for a Metro Station in Malaysia

Brief Overview

This project involved the creation of a comprehensive 3D BIM model with LOD 400 for a metro station in Malaysia. The scope included structural and architectural facade modeling, clash detection, BIM coordination, and quantity estimation. The aim was to improve efficiency, reduce constructability issues, and ensure coordinated design drawings for seamless construction.

Challenges/Requirements

LOD 400 Structural & Architectural Façade Model

Developing a detailed LOD 400 BIM model that accurately represents the steel structures and architectural facades of the metro station, meeting the required level of detail for coordination and quantity estimation purposes.

Clash Detection & Coordination

Identifying and resolving clashes between building elements, including structural and architectural components, to ensure effective coordination and seamless integration of various systems.

Quantity Estimation

Accurately estimating the materials required for construction, such as steel, concrete, and facade elements, to support precise cost planning and procurement processes.

Constructability Review

Conducting a comprehensive review of the project's constructability, considering site constraints and installation requirements, and addressing potential issues affecting construction efficiency and quality.

Weekly Work-in-Progress (WIP) Models and Reports

Providing regular updates to the client through WIP models and reports, ensuring they are kept informed about the project's progress and milestones achieved on a weekly basis.

Enhanced Coordination

The 3D BIM model and clash detection process facilitated effective coordination among different disciplines, ensuring seamless integration of structural and architectural elements.

Streamlined Construction Process

Reduced construction delays and improved overall project efficiency.

Improved Cost Planning

Accurate quantity estimation aided in precise cost planning and optimized material procurement, reducing potential wastage and financial inefficiencies.

Reduced Construction Issues

By proactively addressing clashes and constructability concerns during the modeling and coordination phase, the project minimized on-site conflicts and delays.

Transparent Project Progress

Regular WIP models and reports kept the client updated with the project's advancement, fostering transparency and allowing timely decision-making.
