No more waste of materials on site: Manufacturing Facility Modeling

Let's talk about estimating costs for the construction of a work. When purchasing the necessary materials, were your calculations accurate? How much extra quantity variance did they add to their estimate? Surely once they found themselves facing a buyback situation due to changes and rework or simply they bought more because “better over and not missing”.

BIM Coordination: The Key to Cost-effectiveness

Way behind are the days of visualizing buildings through sets of drawings. Digital transformation is here, and with it came many new tools and possibilities for BIM experts around the globe. Today, we can visualize a building through 3D modeling and geometry, and that’s not a minor thing. This process was designed to solve numerous construction problems like reviewing mistakes on budget, redundant construction, and the decrease of facility efficiency.

RedBuilt and Voyansi - A Story of Digital Transformation

Picture this scenario:  You are one of the largest companies in the wood and engineering industry and you want to become more efficient by speeding up your processes. This means redefining practically all of your workflows to fit new demands. They know it's one of those jobs where there's much to be gained if done right, yet much to lose if the results do not meet expectation.

This was the scenario facing RedBuilt and they turned to Voyansi to ensure the project was a success.

Zepto: innovation, clarity and commitment to grow

Our visit to Tulum during the BIM World Tour gave us the chance to talk to two of the brains behind a company that's growing tremendously not only within its city but also in the industry and Mexico as a whole.  We are talking about Zepto, a construction and design company with headquarters in Tulum.

After a quick tour through what will be Zepto's facilities in the close future, characterized for their open concept, nature presence, and minimalism, Ramsés and Julio guided us to a bar nearby. There, we could have a long chat about many topics: From the company's characteristics to their thoughts on the future.

Azulik Museum: Mesmerizing and Challenging

This month our team

We’ve arrived at Tulum and the landscape couldn’t be any different from NYC. Streets drastically shift from narrow to wide, and there are few tall buildings around them. Therefore, the sky occupies most part of our field of view.

Looking around you begin to appreciate the city’s palette. Brown colors mix with strident reds, yellows, and oranges. Of course, murals give life to almost every wall. They vary in size and are located almost in every corner.

A walk through the rain in NY

Well, the BIM World Tour’s presence in New York is still giving us much to talk about. But this time let’s talk about the weather.

Walking the streets of New York under the rain is quite a unique experience. Yes, we are aware that rain is not an uncommon phenomenon, but stick with us here. The way the water hits the pavement produces a melody that merges with the honks, the pedestrian’s babbling, and the advertisements that give voice to buildings.

Making the Business Case for BIM

Hopefully, you got a chance to read our blog last week. My colleague Mike “the photographer” wrote a short piece on one of his favorite conference anecdotes: the Kodak Story and the dangers of not innovating. Long story short, if you think photography today, it’s not Kodak, but rather Apple, Sony, Samsung, or maybe Nikon. What happened? Lack of desire to be at the cutting edge of technology. 

If you’re reading this today, you are probably anxious to implement BIM but are wondering how you sell it to leadership. You know that a move to BIM is more than just an update to the “latest and greatest” CAD tools. Within an organization, capital expenditure approval involves not only calculating your overall project cost but also showing the justification for spending that money in the first place. Even if you believe the purchase is necessary and reasonable, you have to convince your other colleagues.  

If you’re reading this article, you probably already know that it’s essential to implement BIM, so I want you to reframe your mindset before making the business case. The starting point is a technological renovation that, far from being thought of as an expense, should be viewed as an investment in the future. You know you need to invest in your organization’s future, so the question really is: How do you prove it to skeptical stakeholders?

Keeping yourself at the forefront of technology

We operate in many markets at Voyansi, with clients in LATAM, North America, Australia, the middle east, and now the EU. This gives our team an opportunity to compare and contrast the maturity of BIM across the globe. Our observation, in many countries, even our home of Argentina, BIM remains an enigma. That is not terribly surprising. After all, the digital camera was invented in 1975, but only in the last decade or so has the technology become prevalent. If you are one of the key stakeholders, or even a decision-maker leading your companies digital strategy, you understand this better than most. If you are ready to get started implementing BIM, you are on the precipice of becoming a pioneer in your business.
