Project - Integrated lean & BIM processes for modulated construction
Sector - Commerical
Technology - BIM
Company - VisiLean
Mace had already built 2 data centres of a similar size. VisiLean provided a new way of working using a complete digital solution. With the unique Lean processes built digitally, we were able to record a staggering 45% labour cost, 60% reduction in defects and 43% improvement in program efficiency.Although lean construction is increasingly being applied on construction projects, applications that support its implementation on construction site remain limited. Production is significantly managed through manual processes and disparate systems. Previous case studies have proven that the use of BIM with lean practices during the construction phase improves the efficiency of planning. One of the major aspects of lean and BIM implementations is the support of the Last Planner System and tracking of production status to ensure production runs smoothly. While 4D planning has been used to support pre-construction planning and first run studies, it has had limited success with tracking real-time production status and supporting the Last Planner System.
Understanding the complexity of the project provides a backdrop to reviewing the effectiveness of adopting a BIM-Lean integrated solution aimed to provide transparency, visualisation, collaboration and administration ease to the project team members.
