Vela Systems software extends the power of BIM from the office or trailer into the jobsite. Once created, a BIM contains a detailed set of objects, hierarchies and attributes that could have value during construction operations. Leveraging Field data in BIM for materials management, commissioning, and handover is a concept Vela has pioneered since 2008. Case studies like pre-cast tracking on the New Meadowlands with Skanska, Commissioning and Handover on Hospitals with Barton Malow, tracking Doors frames and Hardware with DPR, and materials management with Haseldin, are all great examples of how BIM can be leveraged in the field, and field information can make BIM more valuable throughout the project and beyond.

Maryland General Hospital (MGH) in Baltimore, Maryland, is best known for its reputation as a top-notch, university affiliated teaching hospital. That reputation will most certainly grow with the completion of the $57 million, five story Central Care Expansion project that adds much-needed space, modern facilities and some of the industry?s most advanced healthcare equipment. While the addition of a cystoscopy room, a post-anesthesia care unit and larger operating facilities will certainly benefit doctors, staff and patients, it?s the activities behind the scenes that may generate the most significant, long-term benefit to everyone.  As part of an innovative effort by the Central Care Expansion construction management team to drive the benefits of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and field-based tools beyond design and construction, MGH operations and maintenance staff have now implemented a comprehensive digital documentation, Read More >
