Doing strategic work up-front
From the get-go, DIALOG and the team put parameters in place to facilitate the project's success. The plan includes best practices and put access control measures in place.
CCC was also one of their first projects to have a BIM deliverable, a facilities management model, at the end of the job. Doing a lot of upfront work, they were able to avoid manual work.
“The design builder is delivering the facilities management model by having a database that's able to extract information and put it in a spreadsheet and make it presentable to the clients, without us spending a lot of time on the manual process of gathering that information,"says Kalaf.
DIALOG used a database connected to Revit to deliver the data. "If we had approached this as a traditional job, we would have realized too late that we needed to enter all the data manually. It would have been a failure. We avoided that by doing all the work upfront," says Kalaf.
