Coins saves costs


3D modelling allows many potentially expensive problems to be solved before they appear on site. Construction Industry Solutions (COINS) has developed BSLink, a 3D analysis tool, which is said to reduce costs by up to 10%.

BSLink is fully integrated with AutoCAD, providing an industry standard interface. Arup & Partners found that after six weeks, new users were producing complex 3D models.

Structural, architectural and M&E designs often clash on site.

By working from the same or compatible 3D models these clashes can be avoided.

By assigning product codes and prices to structural elements, BSLink will soon be able to assist in the procurement process as well as in the visualisation of design.
