4D BIM involves time-related information being linked to different components of the Building Information Model. Specific elements of work, including details on procurement, construction and installation period are all part of the 4D Model.
This approach to project planning and scheduling provides unparalleled graphical representations of schedules. Whether it is for Development Schedules, Working Schedules or for Forensic Time Impact Analysis, 4D Planning allows traditional Gantt charts to be better communicated to all project team members and stakeholders to ultimately creating enhanced feedback, greater clarity, reduced project risk and a more robust plan.
Our 4D programmes can be produced at varying levels of detail and complexity depending on client needs. Our background and specialisation in Construction Project Management, Planning and Scheduling means we are able to produce robust 4D Models which can be tracked in 4D throughout the lifecycle of a project, populated with all the necessary resourcing and cost data for enhanced project control.
BE's approach when developing 4D models can extends to other benefits through Virtual Reality Hazard Identification Workshops, Claims & Delay Analysis and Validation of Schedule Logic.
