What types of building information are best portrayed in 3D views?
- Which stakeholders require 2D views, and why?
The best-portrayed building information in 3D views is the one need it by the one who requires it.
In the following lines, I describe the stakeholders that require 2D views and their interests:
Constructors to understand the project and develop their correct estimation and schedule planning.
Clients, in other, to understand the idea and how the spaces will be used.
Subcontractors need to address their schedule plan and estimate their works.
Give examples of how the building information for a specific location in the project needs to be filtered for different audiences and purposes?
At the construction site, it is always helpful to have the correct drawings for the right people to make the meetings flow easily and let them read easily without getting distracted or confused by unnecessary objects.
For example, Plumbing drawings do not need furniture or details like fixtures and casework in the views.
The presentation for clients is another example of how we could adapt the information for specific audiences. They are not interested in construction details, so you should make a presentation readable that showcases how the spaces will be used.
How can schedule views be used to assist with procurement and model-based estimating?
Information is always valuable for estimating construction. Thanks to the advantage that the schedule views on Revit offer, we can accelerate estimating due to its real-time actualization. The schedule views allow the cost estimating team to have access to the volumes they need in the moment they consider more convenient, making the process easier.
