Design, engineering and project management consultancy firm, Atkins, has chosen AVEVA Everything3D and AVEVA Laser Modeller software to support lean construction processes.
Key capabilities that encouraged Atkins to adopt use of the AVEVA E3D were its ‘BubbleView’ laser scan imagery and the tight integration of AVEVA Laser Modeller, which enables laser scans to be readily converted into intelligent, as built 3D design models.
Nick Wells, operations Director at Atkins commented: ‘We’ve had a long and productive relationship with AVEVA and are excited to deploy even more advanced AVEVA technology on some of our highest profile projects.
‘The ability to have laser scan data directly integrated into the AVEVA E3D design environment is very impressive. This enables our designers to immediately understand and work with accurate data, minimizing rework in the design office, the fabrication yard and construction site’.
Hanno Tam, Vice President SEA & Australasia, AVEVA, said: ‘Atkins is a great example of how a major Engineering and Design Consultancy can adopt the principles of engineering and design for lean construction across its client portfolio.
‘Laser scan data that is available across the entire project lifecycle can dramatically reduce discrepancies between designers, contractors and fabricators by enabling them to quickly and correctly respond to changing circumstances. Engineers can position new designs and run clash checks against the existing plant. This will, in turn, minimize rework, drive quality and directly benefit the returns realised across the project’.
