Key Benefits

Improved Project Alignment 

4D visualization provides an excellent way to present a progressive project vision by dynamically showing project phases and site logistics in a 3D virtual reality environment, the entire project team works Synergistically

. Schedulers, project managers, superintendents, designers, engineers, estimators and even clients team, can expect a shared understanding of project status, milestones, responsibilities, and construction plans. Everyone is sure to be on the same page at any time with the 4D representation of the project in conjunction with traditional schedule GANTT charts.

​Improved Project Coordination
4D visualization links 3D design data  with scheduling tasks and shows projects in 4D. Designers, builders and owners can easily see how projects are built. This helps everyone to understand the schedule quickly and thoroughly. By visualizing how objects in 3D and how they're installed in sequence, many design conflicts can be quickly identified. Team based decisions can be made quickly and comfortably by being able to see the results of seamlessly incorporated design or schedule changes. Showing and communicating 4D in resource color codes to subcontractors also help logistical planning and trade coordination, therefore avoiding disruptions during construction.

Optimized Construction Sequencing With Materials Integration

By visualizing color-coded tasks or resources on materials items, and their connections each others, schedulers can cross-check tasks against materials elements status.  These features help schedulers create accurate schedules.

What-if Analysis and Change Management

A change on a task can cause ripple effect changes on other tasks. 4D visualizes the impact of these changes to the objects so that different construction scenarios can be analyzed, presented, and discussed allowing the best decision to be made based on different project member perspectives. Visual Simulation can also seamlessly synchronize changes made on either the schedule or on 4D tasks. Changes made to design objects also often cause schedule changes and resource re-assignments. Visual Simulation reflects these object and schedule changes in 3D and 4D which allows the project team to address issues and adjust construction plans accordingly.

Analyzing Constructability and Improved Safety

By showing the model in 3D at any hierarchical or any system component level and presenting the detailed sequences of materials items to be installed, 4D views clearly expose the objects' structural and special constraints. Construction safety can be improved by using 4D views. Hazards can be anticipated by visualizing and analyzing the constraints against object installation requirements and to see the entire construction site situations. The best construction methods can be selected based on a better understanding of these project constructability issues.

E2C bridge works with  the project team to integrate the 3D models elements with scheduling activities, performing 4D construction sequencing, progress controls and status visualization.  

This approach  effectively improves project communication, coordination, and construction logistics planning and It helps you build optimized task sequences resulting in significant project time savings.

E2C Bridge leverages existing available 4D technologies and applies advanced methods to integrate the solution into its project control and materials management services. Nevertheless, this approach requires specific integration services to adapt the solution into a specific project or project portfolio.
