BIMEYE and BIM360 side by side
At the Symetri Nordic BIM Summit which was recently held in Stockholm, Johannes Ris, BIM manager of Byggstyrning, contributed with his speech on ‘BIMEYE and BIM360 Design, A cloud collaboration story’. Here, he told the audience about the many benefits of working with BIM and collaboration through the two cloud solutions; BIMeye and BIM360.
Formerly, Johannes Ris was BIM manager at Tikab, where he in a period of 3 years was in the group that implemented BIMeye in the large Slussen Lock Project with much success.
Today, as a partial contractor, and on behalf of the developer, the company Byggstyrning specializes in procurement by taking charge of the stakeholders and suppliers in the construction projects. Their responsibilities start already at the idea phase and last all the way through to facility management.
Byggstyrning is a 20-year-old company with 10 employees. At the moment, they work with a project portfolio of about 1,3 Billion SEK. The main task is to hire consultants and set up teams to run the projects. They cover the following:
- Development throughout the entire life cycle.
- Construction Management
- Agent for building owners recruiting consultants for the various tasks.
- Gather teams for projects.
One of the customers to Byggstyrning is Swedens largest facility owner, Vasakronan. Connected to this customer, Byggstyrning has 75 BIMEYE users running several projects in BIMEYE; Head Office of Livsmedelverket and Tyréns new head office in Stockholm.
The numerous benefits of the digitalization
According to Ris the benefits of the digital collaboration methods are numerous:
‘By managing the data in the construction projects, the risk of human flaws is radically reduced. We call it construction data management. Adding BIMEYE to the whole process has the following benefits:
- BIMEYE holds all values.
- We get contractual review options for the tenants.
- You can zoom in on digital data, making small notes easy to read.
- All the data comes from BIMEYE’
As the owner representative, taking care of the main tasks like project management, cost estimate, tenant processes, bidding process and production management as well as commissioning, having a tool like BIMEYE on board is a necessity. And it can be used in many ways.
