Increased Collaboration Leads to Improved Project Delivery

The advantages of using BIM, or Virtual Construction, on a construction project are numerous, but most important is real-time access to project info that is available to all team members at the same time. Historically, it could take weeks of studying drawings and schedules before a true project understanding was created. BIM can create a similar understanding with a 5-minute 4D animation. And when that 5-minute animation gets shared with 50 people, suddenly you have contractors, owners, operators, subcontractors, manufacturers, engineers and architects who can all start collaborating together, sharing and storing their individual expertise. We’d say that’s a pretty powerful thing.

Time and Cost Savings During all Phases of Construction

The ability to take a step back and build a project virtually, to see the proverbial forest for the trees, before ever physically stepping foot on site, has benefits at all points throughout the project lifecycle.

4D Scheduling

Intelligent linking of a project schedule to a 3D model to create a 4D Phase Planning schedule – construction sequencing with visualization.

Constructibility and Interference Checks

3D model is broken down in detail to review constructibility of the project, with all interferences highlighted for adjustment.

Multi-Trade Coordination

Trade information and input is updated into the 3D model to ensure an accurate representation of what is going to be built.

Prefabrication

Inputting information into the model for accurate prefabrication and installation of construction elements.

Chartwell Head Office

Chartwell Retirement Residences operates over 175 senior living facilities across four provinces in Canada. Maple Reinders was awarded the Construction Management contract for Chartwell’s new corporate headquarters. The facility is constructed on a five-acre greenfield site with Maple Reinders responsible for both the base building and the interior fit-out work.

Water/Wastewater Treatment

Lorne Park WWTP

Since Lorne Park WTP was first built, Peel Region’s population has grown from 352,703 to 1,159,400; with a projected population for 2031 at 1,571,000. To ensure adequate supply of safe drinking water for Peel’s residents and businesses, Lorne Park WTP underwent a further expansion.

Water/Wastewater Treatment

Port Granby WWTP

The Port Granby WWTP, part of the larger Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI) group of projects, is the only plant of its kind in Canada, providing a safe and long-term management solution for historic low-level radioactive waste and marginally contaminated soil in the Municipalities of Port Hope and Clarington.
