Merging of the physical and virtual worlds
BIM (Building Information Modelling)
buildeco‘s added value is beneficial when our supply chain expertise and ability to programme and deliver projects more smartly is used. Conventional thinking is challenged.
buildeco is implementing BIM processes in the work-flow to achieve a more efficient design and seamless collaboration across the delivery supply chain partners and manufacturers. A common platform throughout will benefit the process by facilitating the exchange of information among multiple partners using a common CAD language.
A set of guidelines, procedures and responsibilities have been developed for the interaction of partners and manufacturers.
Future digital challenges
In the future buildeco will develop a design portal on the web site which will allow clients to design, size and style a building online digitally from a range of standardised, virtual-reality component pieces. Once selected the various components are automatically assembled online to form the completed building, which can be saved and viewed in 3D. The completed building can then be ordered online. Once manufactured, it will be delivered to the site to be assembled.
Our future vision includes a service that involves customers receiving live progress updates at key manufacturing stages in advance of site delivery.
The minimum warranty would require the external Part-Fab building envelope, windows and doors to be assembled by the home supplier delivery team system integrators. The remainder of the installation and finishes would be dependent on the amount of construction work and responsibility that the client would be prepared to take on and supervise.
Digital tools for global growth
Digital marketing is a cost-effective and essential tool in growing overseas sales. We will create an effective online web strategy to address these challenges.
