In the last two posts of the ‘LEGO Architecture meets BIM‘ series we have seen how we can visualise the building sequence with both GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD and Solibri Model Checker. Both of the methods described rely on having some data related to the sequence. But of course in order to do this the model author needs to know the sequence of steps. Whilst this process is useful for early stage visualisation of a construction sequence it is less effective when managing real buildings to understand the detailed steps to erect a building. Therefore solutions have been developed by various vendors to produce more advanced approaches to construction sequencing. This typically involves using a model connected directly to a project programme. As this process involves a 3D model and adds time it is often referred to as 4D construction. Continue reading
