The 4D construction and planning is something that has gained a wide acceptance amongst architects, construction engineers and builders. According to a research, it was established that the 4D construction sequencing and planning is way better establishing an overall communication and coordination amongst teams, than the conventional 2D CAD drawings and construction plans.
The 4D modeling and construction planning, permits architects, engineers, and contractors to visualize construction scheduling, as a part of its collaborative experience. With the assistance of a 4D model, it is possible to set up coordination between all departments and provide a clear visualization of the schedule itself. Substitutions as a result of design and construction planning can be evaluated persuasively within the context of space and time.
With the help of 4D CAD building modeling approximately 15 per cent of construction problems can be classified before the inception of construction process. With the help of 4D CAD tools, it is possible for professionals to thoroughly understand the construction planning and sequencing and hence immediately identify any scheduling problems caused due to various factors immediately. This also allows efficient field coordination.
About 20 per cent of professionals get adequate information pertaining to construction planning with the help of 4D CAD building modeling. When an architect exploits orthodox 2D documentation there is no information or data pertaining to the categorizing of activities and installation agendas for precise design elements. Construction agendas scarcely have the supplementary info mandatory for construction personnel to organize the authentic field fitting of design components. Consequently, bidding process depends on the expertise of contractors so that they can take into consideration factors other than design. With the help of 4D CAD tool, it is possible to have an enriched interaction with stakeholders.
