5D Cost Planning: a new dimension in certainty for Contractors and Subcontractors
We work with Contractors and Subcontractors to deliver traditional Quantity Surveying Services in a very non-traditional way. We push the boundary on new technology to take create time, cost and quality benefits for you.
Through Building Information Modeling (BIM), and by utilising the latest 5D & 4D BIM technology, MB is able to push traditional barriers in Quantity Take Off, scheduling and cash flow analysis.
We are committed to provide strategic BIM advice and hands-on assistance to support you on your 3D, 4D & 5D BIM journey.Learn more about 5D Cost Planning here
Contractors and Subcontractors have relied on Mitchell Brandtman’s quantities for many years in a traditional environment. Today through our 5D workflow we can offer greater accuracy, certainty and transparency in model based Quantity Take-offs, which are readily revisionable upon each model revision. Our services in this phase include:
Bills of Quantities and Virtual Trade Packages
Variations, Payment Claims and Reports
Three critical issues in project feasibility and delivery are time, cost, and quality. These three are interrelated and the old adage of ‘time is money’ is never more apt than in a construction project. A properly constructed and managed programme can make a difference at both tender and project delivery stages and can be the critical difference in delivering a project on time and on budget.
Using the latest technology our team builds on standard 3D models to add both the time, 4D and cost, 5D.
With the use of technology in our industry on the rise, contractors and subcontractors are being provided 3D design models at the time of tender as an aid in the tender process and general understanding of the project.
Mitchell Brandtman’s model validation workflow implemented to support our own 5D workflow can be an invaluable tool to quickly understand the quality of model information provided and identify model data issues that may affect quantity or item accuracy.
We take a practical approach to providing independent and impartial opinion on construction related matters including:
