As a collaboration platform for the exchange and coordination of issues, BIMcollab was fundamental for us in the transition to BIM. The live connection between Solibri and BIMcollab was crucial in the decision-making process. Meinhard von Gerkan, Volkwin Marg and their partners have planned and constructed buildings in most major German cities since 1965. They have designed small scale homes, hotels, theaters, office buildings, commercial centers and hospitals as well as educational and sports facilities and master plans.
Changing our methodology was crucial to overtake the situation. Using a collaborative cloud platform like BIMcollab was the key to our success. Facing tight deadlines and a high volume of modifications during the Design and Construction Phases with a traditional coordination approach (mail, phone, PDF reports) was not an effective methodology at all. This situation got even more chaotic when we had to collaborate with other firms and keep track of all the versions and issues related with the Model coordination.
BIMcollab helps to increase the levels of collaboration, effectiveness and efficiency on our projects and it provides access to a real-time audit trail that provides both textual and visual information, which is extremely useful.

This traditionally Excel-based exercise slowed down the process of identifying and communicating issues. BIMcollab was implemented to mitigate this issue, allowing many users to all be viewing and commenting on the design at the same time, whilst providing visibility of these issues to all users. ''My name is Lindsay Collier and I worked as a Digital Engineer for Laing O’Rourke as part of the MPT Joint Venture on the Trafford Park Line of Manchester Metrolink.
Using the clash detective tool within Navisworks is fine, but BIMcollab makes the process of creating issues and reporting them to the project teams far more streamlined and automated. Matthew Bannister, digital engineer with Laing O’Rourke, is currently working on the project Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials. They have been commissioned by the university of Manchester to to construct a state of the art research facility at its campus in the city centre.
