5D Quantity Surveying – Mitchell and Brandtman: CAITLIN HINTZ

With the implementation of BIM into the construction industry changing the way buildings are designed and built, Quantity surveyors are also starting to review traditional methods and further streamline their roles in the construction process. These are indeed exciting times ahead for the Quantity surveyor as many new functions and abilities of a QS are being discovered.   Continue reading

BIM Coordination Technologies: Ryan HANLEN & Fawzi SOLIMAN

Some amazing & physics defying structures are being built this day and age. However, many of these could not occur without BIM technologies, also known as Building Information Modelling. In layman’s terms, BIM is a technology where an actual 3D model of a design is generated when drawing in 2D. As well as generating a 3D model, information such as quantity, cost, material is attached to each element inside the 3D model. Everything is linked. So what does this mean?  Continue reading
