BIM on Plant Relocation Projects

BIM on Plant Relocation Projects

Building information modeling, or BIM, is digital modeling technology used in building planning, design, construction, operation, and management. It is widely used in new construction, selective demolition, and renovation projects, and it is becoming recognized as a highly effective tool for plant relocation projects.

BIM-to-field laser scanning equipment can be used create a 3D model of existing mechanical and structural building components at the new facility. By centralizing information in one coherent, readily-accessible system and allowing building owners, designers, and plant relocation contractors to take a virtual tour of the completed facility in the model. Placement of new and existing equipment in the new facility is simplified and problem areas that might not be apparent on paper are more easily identified and corrected.

BIM can also be used in plant relocation to pinpoint all electrical utilities, such as electrical substation VFDs, motor control centers, large electrical conduit, and racks. Pipes, ductwork lines can be plotted, as well as maintenance and pull spaces. Design changes entered in the BIM model automatically update all trickle-down details, eliminating relocation problems and errors. R. Baker & Son also relies on building information modeling for rigging, dismantling, selective demolition, and plant decommissioning projects.
