4D Construction Simulation
Scroll down for more
We develop 4D Simulation by combining the 3D CAD model with the project’s construction schedule. The tool can be applied at any stage of a project if a 3D CAD model is in use.
Visualising the construction sequence gives the project team and stakeholders a greater appreciation of the scope, time frame and number and location of worksites in a virtual environment. It has greater efficiency and impact than cross-referencing 2D drawings and a separate project schedule.
It also reduces the time required to review and challenge the schedule.
Similarly, it minimises construction risks by providing a dynamic visualisation of any spatial or sequence constraints.
4D simulation enhances collaboration between the design and construction teams.
4D Simulation can be applied to all types of projects such as:
Offshore platform and jacket fabrication
Onshore greenfield process plants, including simulation of civil works and undergrounds
Brownfield onshore and offshore modifications including destruct and construction phases.
4D Construction Simulation:
Reduces execution risk
Optimises construction schedules
Reduces construction cost
Improves communication between key stakeholders
Enables visualisation for stakeholder engagement.
