It's always better when someone else tells your story for you right? Well recently BAM Construction UK shared how they worked with the team at Autodesk to do just that. Their story tells how they used Navisworks Quantification as part of their BIM workflows to make things better, so we thought it would be good to share that with you here.
"Reporting quantities using Navisworks means there are no surprises. And no surprises translates into more cost certainty and reduced risk for our client."
Mark Taylor, Digital Construction Manager at BAM Construction UK, tells us how they quickly develop cost plans and eliminate the need for external estimating parties using Navisworks.
After BAM started using Navisworks in 2012, they quickly realised how to collaborate more efficiently with clients, helping manage costs in a more productive and proactive manner. One of BAM's first uses of Navisworks for quantification was for the construction of a new school building for Royds Hall Community School in Huddersfield. The £6M project provides space for an additional 420 primary school children in West Yorkshire, England. BAM was responsible for both the design and construction of the building, using BIM (including Revit) for its design in combination with Navisworks for quantification, project coordination, clash detection, and construction planning. This collaboration allowed the team to react very quickly to their client's needs. As revisions and change orders could be quickly incorporated into the design model, the combination created "a win-win situation all around.
