Traditional and BIM Approach in Quantity Surveying
A Quantity Surveyor is an expert in the art of costing a building/infrastructure at all its stages who offers expert advice on construction costs.
Scan to BIM is an evolutionary technology that is changing the way construction design and planning are being designed for already made structures. It is an ideal technique for retrofitting old structures or for developments for which the design or spatial drawings are not available.
BIM is part of most public/private construction projects in India. But most (almost all) BIM projects get into a Level of Detail (LOD) debate in the midway and stakeholders lose the vision(essence)of the project which brought everyone together in the first place.
Clash detection capabilities that help identify and eliminate clashes during the design phase. Supported by clash detection tools such as Navisworks, they help reduce material waste and construction rework.
There is often a misconception about the functionalities of BMS and CMMS systems in the industry. A BMS is designed for controlling and monitoring the building's MEP systems whereas CMMS is designed to plan, manage, improve, and standardize maintenance operations of assets.
