Project Highlights

Comprehensive BIM Strategies

Unisearch has created, at the early stage, a BIM-enabled strategy to effectively manage and control the delivery of the project. Complete BIM solutions have been provided by Unisearch from the onset of the project to enable all project stakeholders to understand and implement BIM processes, standards, IT infrastructure, legal frameworks, roles and responsibilities, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), BIM Deliverables, QA/QC, etc.

Independent Design Reviews

Unisearch performed weekly reviews of the design models & updates provided by the consultants, provided feedback & the necessary modifications were incorporated in the next week’s upload. These independent reviews assisted the consultants in keeping the project on track with the required quality of the product in check.

Clash Management Process

The Clash management process employed by Unisearch enabled the different consultants to review & rectify the type and severity of conflicts highlighted by Unisearch. The highly effective cyclic nature of this process paid dividends throughout the design stages of the project.

Improved Client Involvement

Client participation early on in the design process with the assistance of BIM visualization processes set up by Unisearch helped the consultants come up with a better & more productive design for the project.

Code Compliance Strategies

As a part of the BIM implementation process, specific attention was paid to the code compliance QA/QC procedures on Unisearch‘s part to check the project design. Headroom clearance, discrepancies, code checks, etc., combined with the multidiscipline clash checks enabled Unisearch to provide better design management services to the client.

Stakeholders Collaboration

Through a consistent and well planned project management process, Unisearch enabled all project stakeholders collaborating on a single BIM platform & providing ready-to implement solutions which has led the project to save valuable time on the generation of shop drawings, approvals, data sheets, communication, etc.
