Why BIM?

BIM PipesWith further progression and demand for data rich models that are compliant with FM and Asset management processes, the need to begin the process as early as possible in BIM is becoming more important than ever.

The ability to use and manipulate model information easily in real time on site is the goal and having a highly accurate survey model with sufficient data is paramount to begin with. Comparing existing and planned model information without the need for costly and regular site visits is not only desired, but dependent on accurate survey information which MSL can provide. Time and money are too often wasted inspecting poor or inaccurate survey information.

Models too often lack true data richness and MSL understands that the ability to use relevant data and export such data quickly is critical to the BIM process for facility owners, managers, maintenance crews, to utility providers and so on.

Our As-Built Building Information Models integrate directly with existing Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) and Facility Management Systems (FM) ideal for buildings, civil/infrastructure assets and plant/facility assets.

Murphy Surveys BIM SolutionsCapture and integrate reality directly into your design process with ReCap™ reality capture software. ReCap point cloud and image-based 3D modelling software and services work seamlessly with Autodesk design and creation suites, so you can start your design with accurate dimensions and full photo-quality context rather than a blank screen.

BIM that can be linked in to survey information at the start of a construction project is important and helps with speed of delivery, usability of information, the ability to quality check the survey information more readily, extract relevant data within the same model and cross check elevational information at a glance.

BIM gives reliable, accurate data reducing risks associated with project execution.

A single, shared knowledge source improves collaboration, communication and workflows.

Highly-detailed data improves decision-making and engineering designs.

Compared to both traditional methods and multi-platform information viewing /comparing are highly valuable outcomes for providing BIM Survey info in an accurate way.
