GratingBIM advantages are brought forth when combining grating layout information and other building systems together into a virtual 3D environment.

Streamlined collaboration and design confidence are improved when scaled 3D grating models interact with other disciplines, resulting in avoidance of errors and project delays. The information below illustrates how GratingBIM adds value to your next construction project.

BIM Advantages
Accelerated Review and Approval Process Reviewing 2D Shop drawings could be time consuming. Engineers integrating 3D models from suppliers such as steel fabricator, grating manufacturer, MEP contractor, etc., provides them greater access to information, thus simplifying the review and approval process.
Review and Approve
Reduce Construction Errors Pipe and equipment clashes in field, leads to costly field repairs and schedule delays. GratingBIM allows grating layouts to merge with piping and equipment models to easily highlight interferences. Therefore, presenting an opportunity to fix issues prior to fabrication or installation.
Construction Costs
Optimize Design Leveraging use of 3D models early in the design can aid engineers design grating layouts and ensure proper grating support.
Optimize Design
BIM integrated meetings 3D model based review and communication process is increasingly being leveraged at construction sites and is utilized at EPC firms. Models can be used to raise and address RFI's efficiently as engineers have a 3D picture or model of what exactly needs attention.
BIM integrated meetings
Construction site model access GratingBIM is compatible with apps on hand held devices making grating models available in 3D at construction sites. Information such as sequencing and piece-marks, etc., can be readily available.
Access to Models
Lifecycle Management GratingBIM models could be digitally stored or imported to the main facility model and utilized during the plant’s lifecycle. With the model, plant owners can easily identify any grating that may need replacement or share with engineers during any additions, modifications, etc.
