Building information modeling software improves efficiency.
Technology, like BIM, is changing more than just healthcare’s latest therapeutic modalities and pharmaceutical advances. It’s also disrupting the design and implementation of the facilities that create them.
How to incorporate a new process into an existing facility is a basic question that begins every project. The client usually has a preconceived idea of where a new process will go and how much space is available, but if we stop here and do what we are told, preconceived notions may drive us to a point where we find that project needs haven’t been met.
While we all have access to today’s great technology, it is truly only worth what we make of it. Without proper implementation, each device is only a different sized paperweight. CRB utilizes iPhones, iPads, numerous applications and VDC kiosks in the field in order to drastically improve collaboration, installation and safety during the construction processes. This gives our construction engineers, superintendents and trade contractors the resources necessary to stay on-site.
Traditional 2D design workflow previously involved drawing detailed sections that forced us to physically look at spatial allocation. As processes have become more automated, design teams have begun to rely on each other for coordination. This has a tendency to remove the planning process at the beginning of the job, where spatial allocation was previously addressed.
