The most effective use of BIM is to enable the centralised reference model to become the backbone of the project. The model will gather more and more information as the project passes through design, construction and into maintenance and everyone will have contributed to it.
Completions Connect enables the BIM model to function as the ‘single source of truth’ that all of the teams (and their software) rely on for information. But it’s not just the 3-D model. Completions Connect also relates all of the other project metadata to nodes on the 3-D model. From inspection reports to equipment manuals, everything is available in the single source of truth.
The BIM enabled single source of truth in Completions Connect can then provide a complete history of the project and it’s this audit trail that brings huge integrity to the entire process. From concept to completion, all of the participating teams will have benefited from BIM and delivered efficiencies because of it.
