After the BIM Models for all disciplines are created, Photic performs Clash Detection and generates Clash Reports. Our staff works together with architects, engineers, general contractors, and various trades to detect and resolve the design conflicts among construction elements before construction starts.
For contractors, the “low hanging fruit” for return on investment include:
• Improving construction costs by identifying and correcting clashes before the construction team is onsite
• Increasing the chances of winning a project bid by showing thoughtful design approaches using the visualization techniques inherent in BIM-based renderings
• Reducing the number of change orders, which reduces administrative expenses and processing time during construction
• Allowing more fabrication to happen off-site, greatly improving yard management activities
