Online Project Management with BIMcontact
As part of the service, StruEngineers also provided WBD with BIMcontact free of charge. BIMcontact is a web-based document management solution and was used to manage all the drawing files for the project.
This was especially useful when you consider that a lot of the drawing work took place during the UK’s COVID-19 lockdown. With a unique IFC-viewer, mobile accessibility, and cloud storage, BIMcontact lets everyone involved in the project access definitive files when they need to, and wherever they are.
In a future where increased remote working is a certainty, BIMcontact is the way forward. Miles Cristoforides, Senior Structural Engineer, from WBD Group said, “BIMcontact has a thumbs up from me. I found it intuitive and easy to use.”
Files are all stored in one place with auto-synchronisation and complete control over file versions. You can customise permissions and view, review, and comment on drawings and 3D models from any device.
All these things mean you can do away with complicated and confusing email trails and uncertainty over file versions.
Most importantly in the case of the Goschen Estate project, it meant no unnecessary delays – staff working remotely could ensure the detailing workflow carried on throughout lockdown.
