Austin Reddy establishes BIM Capability
In 2013, we upgraded our computer hardware and invested in Cost-X, a leading new take-off software. Through on-screen technology this enables us to measure directly from Auto Cad, pdf and jpg drawings. The upgrade results in greater measurement accuracy and shortened timeframes, ultimately leading to greater efficiencies in our service.
A major benefit of on-screen take-off and the particular software that we use is the ability to measure directly from Building Information Models (BIM). In the short time since the upgrade, we have worked on three different BIM projects using Cost-X, a restaurant project containing structural information in a model, a healthcare project that used an architectural model, and a football and athletics stadium project in the Middle East that had a structural and mechanical/electrical model. The stadium project in particular led to a huge reduction in time in comparison to measuring from drawings, resulting in the ability to spend more time reviewing and analysing the results of the measurement. We hope to get involved in many more BIM projects in the near future.
In addition to this Austin Reddy & Company, in conjunction with Construct-IT, were the Quantity Surveyors on a BIM Pilot Project for CITA (Construction IT Alliance) and Fingal County Council, a virtual project but with a real site and a real design team designing through BIM.
