Saving time by finding design errors
POSCO E&C applied BIM to four facilities of this project; Central Maintenance Shop, Raw Material Test Center, Chemical Analysis Center and Raw Water Treatment facility. They were able to build them all on schedule. They saved a large amount of time on rework and fixing issues on site by coordinating their design before construction with Tekla BIMsight.
Regarding the Central Maintenance Shop, POSCO E&C saved approximately 15% in rework by preventing errors before construction was started. The scheduled construction period was 627 days, and by using TeklaBIMsight, they were able to finish the project on time by finding 99 errors in advance. If they were unable to detect and prevent those errors, the project would have taken an estimated 94 extra days. As for the other three facilities, the savings in time were: 2% in the Raw Material Test Center, 8% in the Chemical Analysis Center, and 32% in the Raw Water Treatment Facility.
