Outsource2india Helped US-based Survey Giant with BIM Modeling

Case Study on BIM Modeling for US Based Survey Company

The Client

The US-based survey giant specializes in providing survey-based services to its growing list of customers across different industry sectors ranging from construction to manufacturing. The company focuses on industrial and institutional development and provides engineering drawings, as-built models through laser scanning, and UAV techniques. They started with CAD-based modeling and drafting techniques and transitioned to a completely BIM-based delivery procedure.

Requirement & Challenges

The client was working on a renovation project to create 24 floors of living space with four existing floors. The client wanted to convert point-cloud laser scan data to an information-rich and high-level precision BIM model. The aim was to create the as-built drawings of an existing building to aid construction of rest of the floors with similar outlines. The challenges involved an issue with the quality of the scan. There were improperly scanned files which made BIM modeling a challenging task.

The level of detailing of the scanned point-cloud files was not adequate. Real pictures of the building were required to aid the BIM modeling process. Another challenge was to transfer large point-cloud data files. As the client was using BIM modeling for the first time, they needed support to draft project scope, technology to be used, set milestones, and timeline estimation.

Our Solution

Outsource2india BIM experts initiated the project by explaining the intricacies of BIM modeling from point-cloud data files, and mutually decided the project deliverables and targets. Team Outsource2india comprised of four BIM experts. Each member was responsible for a specific component of the model and worked on various levels. They analyzed five different angles and portions of floor-wise laser scans (provided by the client). These scans were converted into a single REVIT model to have ample clarity on the project requirement. Our BIM experts prepared a conceptual model and considered client's feedback before commencing the final BIM modeling work. Client's inputs were listed and utilized to improve the aesthetic look of the model. The specified Level of Detailing (LOD) was created based on this model and was submitted through Dropbox.
