Data Collection Analysis & Development of Integrated Design & Engineering Information Workflow
The aim of the project was to improve and expand Build Health International (BHI) workflows between the global integrated architectural, engineering, and project management teams.
This project specifically sought to analyze existing processes that BHI currently utilizes (Autodesk Construction Cloud, Revit, Civil 3D, etc.), conduct research to determine which BIM processes best fit BHI’s current workflows, and identify strategies to better implement and improve them. Workflows were also created to ease the transfer of information from one platform to another (i.e., from BIM Authoring Tools like Revit to Autodesk Construction Cloud).
Previous and existing systems were reviewed with respect to communication channels, processes/tools to produce deliverables; and project information management (reports, deliverables, and documentation). Gaps were identified using a case study of a project in Nigeria and conducting interviews with the BHI team to understand experiences and lessons learned. The information was then synthesized to identify key issues and proposals. This will help in better design and construction management coordination and improving quality and reliability.
