Visualising and Navigating Data from External Sources Using Custom Navisworks Tools

This abstract has open access
Abstract Summary


At the convergence of Laing O’Rourke’s Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) approach and its investment in BIM, component tracking has proven an efficient aid to the delivery of projects. The data visualisations enabled by linking planning & manufacturing data – both from our suppliers and our own offsite manufacturing facilities - with models provide a clear overview of the construction, for various disciplines. This allows us to detect issues earlier, plan further ahead and reduce user errors. This session will cover Laing O'Rourke's journey from initial trials, current practice for linking external information and aspirations for the future.
