Trimble offers Vico Office, the world's first purpose-built construction software.
Several construction projects in India face the acute challenge of completing work within stipulated timelines and budgeted costs. 4D and 5D BIM technologies come to the rescue in such cases and facilitate timely completion of projects within cost estimates.
Trimble offers the world's first purpose-built construction software, Vico Office, which allows users to'plug in' the BIM authoring application of their choice and perform a constructability analysis, quantity takeoff, a model-based schedule, model-based estimate, and on-site production control - all in an integrated workflow.
Such an integrated workflow is unique in the construction market, as Rajan Aiyer, Managing Director, Trimble SAARC region, shares. 'Trimble offers a living model - a model where the 3D geometry is integrated with the quantities, project schedule (4D), and estimate (5D).' This unique capability allows changes to be managed efficiently and accurately, ensuring timely completion of projects within cost estimates.
Virtual construction brings in a great change for the building industry. Now, the industry has a tool to predict what is going to happen on a construction project with much greater accuracy than it had before. Vico's 5D Virtual Construction solutions pioneered the category of BIM for construction, and the benefits of the solutions and services have been proven on hundreds of building projects to-date globally. Any medium to large construction project, be it high-rise or infrastructure project such as rail or metro station or airport, must adopt this building technology. Today, there are vanguard organisations and a few who adopt international best practices in India, but the nation deserves the benefits of construction technologies on a much broader scale for widespread benefits to the industry and consumers.
