Demands for shorter lead times, design changes and working on multiple design platforms are putting huge demands on Structural Engineers and Detailers where the flow of information, keeping track of versions/revisions and communication needs to be efficient as possible.
To support our Customers, StruEngineers are now providing the project management tool, BIMcontact, for free as part of our service delivery for RC and Precast detail drawings.
BIMcontact is a cloud solution, developed by our Parent Company StruSoft, for sharing, commenting and keeping track of drawings and information. A much smarter way of working than traditional e-mail and standard file handling systems.
Keeping track of the flow of information in construction projects is increasingly important these days. The construction industry is under pressure and time is often scarce due to demands of getting projects completed quickly but with precious little time for the initial designs, preparing the detail shop and GA drawings and incorporating changes and revisions.
The exchange of information was not efficient in the past. Suhas Mohol, MD of StruEngineers India, remembers what it was like before switching to BIMcontact.
“…we used to exchange information and drawings with customers by e-mail which caused major problems. The mail could disappear along the way, and when asking customers, it sometimes hadn’t arrived at all. We could never be sure that our customers used the latest updated versions of the drawings.”
