There is a great necessity to identify clashes before final construction
I don’t think so that anyone would disagree with me if I say identification of clashes is immensely cardinal before final on-site construction. This is because, if architects and engineers start the construction on the basis of 3D models which include design errors in them, then they are sure to meet rework scenarios during on-site construction. If change orders are confronted in the middle of ongoing construction, it tremendously disturbs architects and engineers as they have to dedicate addition time to rectify the problem. They cannot go ahead with the process until and unless they resolve the identified design collisions and problems. If rework begins at actual location it affects a lot of things such as schedules, cost of the project and its delivery.
And all these situations are explicit indicative of unfavorable project productivity which is highly depressing for building owners and general contractors who have to provide required answers to owners for such ambiguous construction situations. So to avoid such unproductive construction situations architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers and BIM modelers take effective precautions during preconstruction such as they execute high quality clash detection and coordination services once development of 3D parametric models is completed.
Navisworks Mange which plays a highly supreme part in performing project review and in the development of 4D simulations is also optimized by design and construction professionals in clash detection, wherein its clash detective tool identifies complete errors. The design discrepancies are identified between the elements of 3D parametric models which are generated in Revit architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP by AEC professionals. In other words Navisworks Mange can recognize and remove all the design errors from architectural, structural and MEP models which are developed in digital environment of multiple Revit disciplines.
ClashDetection tool that allow conducting clash tests can successfully manage their results which contain the identified element collisions. For the appropriate management of clash test results they are grouped by AEC professionals and then saved into folders which can be effectively accessed by modelers when they want to resolve them. In this way all these clashes can be resolved before actual construction.
