Is it faster and smarter?
Chris: "We can quickly assess cause and effects of innovative value engineering activities through tender development.
"Planners, designers and construction leads use A4DP to visually test assumptions and interdependences. Visualisation helps teams to proactively avoid clashes and identify safety and efficiency gains in different methodologies, sequencing, and resources.
“They can consider all project KPIs, make better decisions, improve outcomes and extract every time and cost advantage.”
What’s under the hood?
Mark: “Power Project BIM Enterprise software is the solution’s base, and clever custom software enhancements power the process.
“CIMIC Group’s common Project Data Structure (PDS), which enables data to flow between digital systems, has been key to A4DP’s development and automation."
Where does it take us?
Mark: “A4DP is an important step forward for Integrated Digital Delivery. Because we have our PDS in place, 4D information generated in A4DP can be distributed directly to other applications. We can integrate workflows across different specialist teams and project phases, and share accurate, high-value, reliable information.”
Chris: “That connectivity improves the solution, lifts performance and supports our client partnerships.
“We can work faster and smarter, as one team, toward the same project outcomes.”
Active 4D Planning process
Teams generate the initial project programe in 4D much earlier in the tender process than current industry practice, gaining more time to optimise the solution.
