    This session will discuss a company's successful shift from 2D construction to 3D construction. By capitalizing on advanced digital technology, the company was able to transform its traditional 2D construction process into a more efficient and accurate 3D construction process. The new 3D process involves the creation of detailed 3D models using building information modeling (BIM) software, which allows for improved visualization, coordination, and communication between different stakeholders. The use of 3D models enables the company to detect and resolve potential design clashes, constructability issues, and conflicts between building systems before the construction phase, resulting in significant time and cost savings. Furthermore, the use of 3D models allows for more-accurate quantity takeoffs, material planning, and construction scheduling. By implementing 3D construction, the company is able to improve project quality, speed, and cost savings while maintaining high standards of safety and compliance.
