BIMeye Door Manager helps Skanska optimise and go digital

SKANSKA saves time and reduces costs with BIMeye Door Manager

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.

It is the cloud-based database BIMeye solution, which makes it possible to develop templates for working methods and pre-selected products to be used by all the partners in a construction project

Initially, Skanska will be looking at the processes around doors

A door environment consists of several various products which must be described and categorised by several different partners in the projects. In Skanska’s case, Kim Frelin has chosen BIMeye Door Manager which gives him the possibility to handle these requirements. At the same time, the system is compatible with the most frequently used software in Skanska’s projects, Revit och ArchiCAD. This means that they can use the same methodology regardless of the software and no matter what architect working in the project.

The Benefits ’at a glance’
With BIMeye you get a common database environment in the cloud, making all information accessible in a simple way. One works, contributes and shares the information in the web-based userinterface in BIMeye.

Reports like door cards and Excel are easily withdrawn from the system. With the built-in integration to all the most common design software tools available in the market, everyone in a project can take part in the valuable information which is normally only accessible through the BIM tools or on drawings or models. Therefore, with BIMeye, one does not need access nor skills in working with the advanced BIM tools to access the data.

According to experienced users in previous projects, they see their collaboration improving significantly in their projects.

The fact that the system ensures that you’re always working on the right information and the latest revision and version makes BIMeye a very safe environment to work in.

All information in BIMeye can be time stamped and tracked which again is a great advantage as all changes throughout the project can be tracked and reported.

The door card from BIMeye Door Manager gives a precise overview and description of all details in the door environment which all the parties in a project run in BIMeye can take advantage of; both planners, procurement, production, installation, inspection and maintenance.

One door card for all information
The demand in the market for collecting all information on doors in one common and explicit door card is not new. With BIMeye Door Manager one has a simple feature for printing these out physically while making sure that all information is in one common place – in the BIMeye database. This allows the involved parties with access to the door delivery to cooperate through all phases from early stages to production as well as handling over the information further on to facility management.

Today, several architects and engineers are demanding the BIMeye solution as they acknowledge that this set up is appropriate when starting up new projects. Hence, the challenges have been few when implementing BIMeye in new projects at Skanska. As contractor, Skanska already gains many benefits from the methodology, and on a long-term basis this will increase as BIMeye allows for an even more efficient handling of the BIM-data.

Self-monitoring on the building site in the production stage with BIMeye, BIM360 and Bluebeam.
Today, many contractors use BIMeye to gain efficiency in the planning of the door environments. Typically, the output is just a physical door card (pdf) from BIMeye.

However, as the requirements on the work performed on building sites is increasing, Skanska wants to digitalise this process as well. Traditionally, the door card with all details and tasks to be done, would be hung up on the wall in the room in question. Here, with a pen, the worker has checked out the work performed with a tick mark. A manual process that Skanska wants to digitalise and make more efficient.

Already at the first encounter with BIMeye, Kim Frelin at Skanska acknowledged the opportunities inworking with BIMeye and further develop 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 allows an easy 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 on the handling of door information.

The fact that the system ensures that you’re always working on the right information and the latest revision and version makes BIMeye a very safe environment to work in
