Why BIMcollab enables easy issue management for Dornan Group
Dornan Group, a construction company based in Ireland, was looking for ways to improve the tracking and communicating of issues. The use of cluttered Excel sheets and exported viewpoints from Navisworks was no longer a feasible option. In this customer story, Seán Murphy, BIM Engineering Lead at Dornan Group elaborates on why BIMcollab was the perfect solution for them.
Structured and centralized issue management is key
Dornan Group offers a full range of Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation and Commissioning Services that take any project from construction drawings right through to the final handover and commissioning. They deliver complex projects across a broad range of industrial and commercial sectors. As these projects often have challenging timetables and many (external) stakeholders involved, structured and centralized issue management is key. As Seán Murphy says: “before using BIMcollab, we worked with Excel sheets and exported viewpoints from Navisworks. Tracking issues and communicating about them proved to be a challenge, both within the BIM teams and between the BIM teams and Engineering teams.”
That is why Dornan Group decided that a different way of working was needed to improve issue management. They have implemented BIMcollab Nexus and Zoom through the Connected plan since 2020: “BIMcollab easily tracks issues and assigned tasks. In addition, it integrates well with external BIM software through the BCF Manager. The integrated model reviews and having all issues in one place allows the whole project team to access and review issues without problem.”
BIMcollab: a valuable asset for every BIM project
Dornan group first used BIMcollab on the Dublin Datacenter project. As BIMcollab proved to be a valuable asset in that project, it is since being used for every project that has a BIM scope. It has had a definite positive impact on the management of BIM issues for all their projects:
The easy tracking, reviewing and managing of issues as well as the clear reports are a great benefit to us. We could not do our projects without it.”
