with laser scanning the existing site, creating as-built documentation and then working with the client through the design process and finally clash checking design against as built in a virtual environment.
In many cases this is completed on a project by project basis, at the end of which the data is filed away and lost to future works, resulting in duplicate costs and lack of continuity on each individual project.
By building up a digital database of all assets within an installation the client can use this information not only on a project basis but for the ongoing efficient management of the installation, resulting in both time and cost savings.
As the need for operators to comply with ever more stringent safety management systems, a digital database of the asset can become an invaluable tool in cost-effectively managing the installation.
A database could be used to efficiently manage ATEX zones for example.
- Process and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID)
- Catalogue driven 3D modelling
- Pipe Isometrics (ISO Drawings)
- Structural design
- Instrument Loop Diagrams
- Electrical single lines, load schedules, and wiring schematics
- Hazardous area (ATEX) drawings and cataloguing
- Instrument and Equipment Datasheets
