With the scope to optimize the processes around the handling of doors in the project planning, in procurement and production, Skanska, in cooperation with Symetri, have created a digital methodology. This methodology enables them to change the manual processes thereby saving time and reducing the number of mistakes in the building processes. In addition, Skanska takes it a step further by introducing digital self-monitoring on the construction site.
- Manual handling of data around doors was ineffective
- Too many errors and changes in the purchase phase due to poor information
- Inefficient data flow
- BIMeye Door Manager - a door card with all data
- New BIM methodology that is the same for everyone in the project
- Templates in BIMeye provide a clear overview of purchasing options
- Integration into the most used BIM software systems on the market
- All data will be date stamped
- Digital self-inspection on site with BIMeye, BIM360 and Bluebeam
- Possible for the installer to get a digital pdf of actions in progress, directly from BIMeye
- The supplier marks the door with QR codes
- All information collected and available in one place
- Everyone has access via web browser
- Easy and user-friendly interface
- Reports in the form of door cards and excel files
- Anyone, regardless of the use of BIM software or without, can access the valuable information
- Significant savings in cost of the construction project
- The data stamped data is saved so all changes are updated and saved
Kim Frelin at Skanska acknowledged the opportunities in working with BIMeye and further developing the working processes. As all the data from the doors is already in the BIMeye database, then why settle for a physical pdf when it can be digitalised, accessible and traceable in the system? For the sub-suppliers this will mean that they can digitally sign off the work performed, and Skanska achieves a digital process that is easy to follow up on the ongoing process in the production.
To achieve these features, Symetri, together with Skanska, have developed a series of methods to enable a digital process for the handling of door information.
