Building with BIM

As inventors in the carpentry industry, WEBO has been engineering with BIM for over 7 years. Years of innovation, training and practical development have enabled WEBO to realise large and small projects in BIM, including the Stadhuiskwartier Deventer (Deventer Town Hall). BIM stands for Building Information Modelling and is used to streamline processes into one uniform flow of information throughout the entire construction chain.

BIM makes sure that all relevant information is combined, used and managed in a single digital building model and allows for collaboration with various parties, including the contractor, client, architect, installer, manufacturer and suppliers. BIM can serve as a clear, well-organised management model. WEBO works with a team of 10 employees in accordance with the open BIM standards, or IFC. WEBO engineers are familiar with the latest BIM standards and are constantly given further training.

BIM integration

WEBO distinguishes itself through BIM integration, which forms the starting point for all processes in our organisation. The client, typically the constructing party, assumes responsibility for the coordination of the BIM project: they are responsible for combining several aspect and discipline models nd for performing a clash check.

After the BIM model is released for production, WEBO will start up the machine controls and ordering procedure directly from the BIM environment. Suppliers and partners are generally directly connected to the automated BIM process at WEBO, greatly reducing the chance of errors.

The advantages of BIM

Working with BIM helps optimise the process, minimises failure costs, and gives you a clear overview of the building in a BIM model. The advantages of BIM are that all parties work with the same data, so that all bottlenecks can be identified fast and early and solved before they arise, as the building is built virtually before it is actually built. This results in a shorter construction time and, eventually, a reduction in construction costs.

Concretely, BIM and WEBO’s knowledge provide the following benefits:

  • Chain cooperation and pooling of information in one model;

Combining products into one model provides a clear overview that will speed up the construction of the actual building and includes all the right aspects and dimensions.

  • Direct purchase from chain partners;

WEBO has established a direct link between its BIM model and its partners (suppliers), so that necessary supplies can be ordered immediately. A fast and efficient way of communicating.

  • Failure cost reduction though increased insight;

If mistakes are recognised early, they can be prevented. The process to identify them is also known as clashing. In addition, WEBO’s production process does not require the intervention of external programs, optimising dimensional stability.

  • Clear communication through better agreements.

By laying down communication in systems, agreements are clearer and there is more consistency in the drawing. From a construction point of view, BIM makes the process clearer and easier to manage.

BIM Library

WEBO uses open standards and makes its library available to its business partners. WEBO’s open library standard is part of a transparent policy that stimulates innovation. WEBO hopes to encourage other parties to use BIM and to develop its popularity within the industry. There’s more to knowledge than just having it: we see major opportunities in allowing success it to grow and spread.

To WEBO, BIM is the complete model, covering the building and its environment, and we can make it a success if our mutual communication is based on knowledge and trust. We see BIM as a simple, precise and clear manner of communication that enables high-quality construction. We’d be happy to help you discover how BIM can help you gain insight into your construction issues.

BIM lets you guarantee cooperation. Giving each other feedback, developing together… BIM makes the entire process a lot smoother and ensures everything happens just as agreed.

1

Send your BIM model to us and it will be the linchpin connecting our various departments right away. We will develop the model while our engineers observe and contribute to your solution. We will also share our BIM library with you: insight and knowledge for the taking.

2

Fully automated production and assembly: that is what our Biesse Winline is for. This machine produces directly from the BIM model, providing precise results in an instant and allowing us to manufacture large orders in a minimal amount of time.

3

Ordered products are delivered to the construction site as soon as possible. We will assemble or install them for you if you wish, or you can do it yourself.

According to plan, according to BIM

WEBO has been working with BIM on large and small projects since 2009, with our years of experience giving us a high level of proficiency. If you add our innovations and constant training to that experience, you’ll understand why this is a piece of cake for us. The Stadhuiskwartier Deventer (Deventer Town Hall) is a prime example.

Advantages

  • Chain cooperation
  • Shortened construction process
  • Direct purchasing from chain partners
  • Reduced failure costs
  • Better agreements

BIM fits with our philosophy of imaginative innovations and smarter processes. It makes communication easier, more precise and clearer. To us, BIM constitutes the entire model, from building to environment and we enjoy working with this system. Would you like to find out how BIM can solve your construction-technical problems? Please contact us and we’ll work it out together.
