Furthermore, the ability to truly comprehend the spatial layout of the project was vital. Viewing the positions of 7,560 facilities and the location of 800 km of pipes, ducts and trays, from any angle, was crucial in reducing mistakes in the design scheme. To do so, the project planners implemented parametric adjustments in Dynamo (for Revit) after using Formit to quickly sketch various schemes. Then, the team collaborated on the geographic information system using Infraworks, and imported models from Formit to Revit to finish the details of each water treatment tank.
Finally, by integrating all models and running simulations of the entire construction sequence in Navisworks for conflict examination and developing immersive visualization experiences (VR) through Revit Live and HTC Vive, the team was able to reduce mistakes, minimize the environmental impact of the project, and ensure construction safety. Moreover, the construction efficiency was greatly improved.
