WDI Studios had just three weeks to interpret raw survey data, model civil works and visualise improvements to reduce site development costs.
WDI Studios, an architecture and interior design studio in Gurgaon, India, has integrated building information modelling (BIM) into its practice to reduce costs and deliver benefits to clients for corporate, residential, commercial and hospitality projects. As BIM consultant for a 100-acre township project near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the firm had just three weeks to create visualisations that would aid stakeholders in making decisions about the site's development. WDI Studios saved days by using Autodesk Civil 3D®, Infraworks® and AutoCAD® to create accurate terrain models, model civil works, optimise cut-and-fill plans and visualise cost-saving options for parcel elevations.

Using BIM tools to collaborate saves time
The project's tight deadline was WDI Studio's greatest challenge. Gaurav Sharma confides that the process of sharing information wasn't the most efficient in the past. He noted a McKinsey study that found workers waste up to 60 percent of their time gathering requested information and communicating with co-workers, leaving just 40 percent of their time to spend on role-specific tasks.
To avoid these pitfalls, Gaurav Sharma leveraged his familiarity with Autodesk software to streamline workflows with Standard Operating Procedures for project execution.
The use of previsualisation techniques allowed the team to experiment with different design options before sharing them with stakeholders.
