In a previous post, we introduced BIM earthing to Electrical Earthing Design and cleared up a few misconceptions. In this post, I’m going to suggest where I believe BIM might be going.
Where is BIM Earthing Design heading for Lightning & Earthing?
Currently, most projects operate at BIM level 2. Where each trade has its own 3D model, stored locally on various engineers’ computers, or perhaps on a network folder. This folder is accessible to all (authorised) staff within the organisation. In some organisations where BIM better developed, oven combining these models for the purpose of clash detection. This ensures that, for example, the Earthing contractor doesn’t intend to install BS7430 earth electrodes in the same place as a civils contractor’s ducting/drainage. All of these exist only in 3 dimensions.[Read more…] about BIM Earthing Design – What Does the Future Hold?
