- Retrospective 4D modelling based on records
- 4D workshops to study impact with team
- 4D model was key factor in settlement of dispute in favour of our client
The majority of our projects are created and used during tender, pre-construction and construction stages to improve project management and communication. However, we are also commissioned to create 4D models from records, for example during dispute resolution and delay analysis.
We have completed 8 projects in this capacity, and each time the 4D model has proved pivotal in the settlement of the case.
For these projects, we combine design information with on site progress records, PMIs, site photos and references to other documentation. The resulting model can be used by the team to analyse the delay, cause and effect, critical path and bring insight. It can then be used to support cases and communicate reasoning and point of view.
In this particular project, the building of the model took 4 weeks and the following analysis and inclusion of external document references took another 3 months. The 4D model was used in a series of arbitration meetings and issued to all parties for further interrogation. The case was settled in favour of our client.
