STANDING THE TEST OF TIME Structural engineering is largely a matter of security. Sweco’s structural engineers create buildings that are safe to live and work in and that stand the test of time. We take a holistic approach and ensure that load-bearing structures harmonise with the building’s design and intended indoor environment.
Using BIM for project and management purposes means having access to major advantages – better understanding and design, and an abundance of added-value, especially economical.
Using integrated tools for analysis, simulation and visualisation right from the very early stages of a project allows us to study how buildings and cities will work in reality. Among other capabilities, BIM involves studying the best design for a building aiming to be environmentally friendly, while also being exciting in sheer architectural terms. It also involves optimising a space based on how people actually move in buildings or traffic.
BIM also drastically reduces the need for adjustments and additions, and allows users to keep track of logistics at construction sites. By visualising every stage in 3D, all of the parties involved can gain an overview of what the project will look like in reality.
Once a BIM project has been completed, its information can be transferred directly to the client’s system on the basis of operations, maintenance and management – a feat that would otherwise entail major expenses to recreate afterwards.
In addition to ultimately producing quality buildings, the Sweco team can harness its collective BIM expertise and use BIM to lay the foundation for greater profitability for our clients in each and every construction project.
