The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that the world will need to spend $57 trillion on infrastructure by 2030 to keep up with global GDP growth. This is a massive incentive for players in the construction industry to identify solutions to transform productivity and project delivery through new technologies and improved practices.
AM Technical Solutions (AM) is committed to advancing the capability of high-tech construction projects to construct an intelligent tomorrow. Our latest innovative work is enhancing our multi-dimensional Building Information Management (BIM) development standards and program partner services for the semiconductor industry.
Our BIM Development Standards and Program Partner Services
Successful BIM deployments can provide the foundation for life cycle value by accelerating the deployment of Digital Twins and Digital Assets. AM has been a leader in the BIM space for over 10 years and was an early adopter of 3D modeling and bringing information streams together in an integrated model. We have also pioneered “shifting Quality to the left” by bringing not only traditional clash detection but also specification, code, and constructibility compliance to the digital model.
Our solutions recognize both the end-state as well as the current supply chain capabilities. We bridge these gaps and provide processes and systems that are forward compatible while providing the deliverables needed for today.
We recently entered into a BIM development and owners program development project for a leading edge semiconductor company. This program will support their design and construction for advanced semiconductor facilities. and set them up for Digital Twin deployment.
The BIM project will establish design standards and libraries spanning initial design through to the operation of the facility and enable a digital twin. The project will begin with a 3D level and expand into 4D (construction progress through time), 5D (cost info), and finally into 6D (operations).
We will deliver all project deliverables with focus on cost, quality, and speed. We can achieve this through our commitment to First Time Right. We formulate our methods based on the foundations of an integrated project delivery model utilizing a highly-skilled and experienced global team and partners with proven specialty expertise.
We look forward to providing our customer with flexibility, visibility, and control throughout the project. We will also deliver reliable benchmark performance as measured by safety, quality, cost, and schedule.
Equipped to Meet the BIM Project Objectives
Our team will be drawing from our company’s extensive Building Information Management experience from previous projects. We are confident that our team will deliver the best solution for this project to support our customer’s key objectives.
The project objectives include the following:
- Develop a customer-specific, controlled BIM program.
- Create a customer-owned process.
- Establish foundational elements with sufficient flexibility for project/site applications.
- Streamline the flow of information while maintaining IP.
- Capture change control and document management.
- Identify opportunities to maintain flexibility for future integrations.
- Establish governance around library generation and deployment.
Our work will help us meet the customer’s need for internal ownership of their process and library, help the customer achieve safety in design, create alignment with standards and specifications, and create hooks to digital twins, digital assets, and life cycle value.
We have identified a clear path forward to address each challenge in the BIM project. Our actions will include benchmarking, training the trades, developing standardization, and providing real-time updates to drive toward successful completion.
“Through our integrated role in this BIM project, we are confident that we will be able to reduce errors and re-work, improve safety, and achieve all three of cost, schedule, and quality for our customer,” says Matt Shipley, AM General Manager. “We have successfully supported the semiconductor industry for over 25 years on these types of projects by embracing efficient means and methods to deliver on all project deliverables. We are excited to work with our customer to deliver innovative solutions for their facility expansion.”
