Virtual Construction

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a part of Nova’s wider vision to facilitate the delivery of high quality, cost effective, timely and sustainable projects with reduced whole life costs. BIM is not seen as a stand-alone activity, but as a central component in delivering the next generation of technology solutions to help our customers streamline their processes, meet customer requirements and improve efficiency.

To achieve this will require a process and solution framework, capable of delivering tangible benefits throughout the entire project lifecycle. Therefore, Nova is committed to a collaborative, open and BIM-enabled infrastructure from the initial concept stage, through construction and into operation and maintenance.

Building Information Modelling

Leveraging on the advancement in Building Information Modelling (BIM), the Architecture, Engineering, Construction & Owners (AECO) Industry has revolutionized from a conventional document centric approach to a data centric approach towards planning, design and eventually the management lifecycle of the building.

BIM has created a positive platform for change by reducing uncertainty and fostering collaboration. By allowing the participation of different project stakeholders into a common interoperable platform, important decisions are brought forward early in design phase and thus reducing cost for rework later in the project. Increasingly, this will form part of an intelligent building design, operate and management strategy which leads to effective cost saving.

With more than 20 years’ experience in AECO solution and implementation, Nova is the forefront provider for BIM implementation and consulting. Defining company’s BIM standards, mapping process workflows and formulating BIM Execution Guide, Nova has enabled countless companies to migrate from a traditional CAD environment to adopting BIM effectively.

Computer Aided Facilities Management

As a building life cycle goes further beyond just design and construction, it is crucial to ensure there is a proper and continuous transfer of information from post construction to building operations & maintenance. These when harnessed well, could help the facility manager ensure the organization’s assets are fully utilized at the lowest possible cost, while providing benefit to every phase of a building’s lifecycle.

Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) allows for convenient and efficient support of operational and strategic facility management, i.e. all of the activities associated with administrative, technical, and infrastructural FM tasks when the facility or building is operational, as well as the strategic processes for facilities planning and management. This will aid organisations to control costs, improve efficiency, monitor, plan and control business activities, enforce statutory compliance and support its overall strategic objectives.

Facility Managers are able make better informed decisions as BIM Models and data are seamlessly integrated. Models provide Facility Managers with accurate visualization of any scenarios or simulation required, i.e. crowd flow, evacuation procedure & other disaster. All aspects of the facility including building usage and operations are in a single integrated repository. This allows Facility Managers to perform long term strategic planning effectively apart from monitoring daily operational tasks.
