Project coordination is used to verify what has been outlined by various designers to identify the interferences between different disciplines. Coordination becomes a fundamental tool to identify discrepancies between all projects and ensure more precise and secure synergy between them. When we perform coordination in BIM, we evaluate interferences, anticipate problems, and guarantee solutions for a more efficient project execution, providing our clients with simulations for decision-making, always aiming for cost reduction and better use of the whole.

For a project to be executed quickly and with quality, architects and engineers must seek integrated design solutions that meet the needs of clients, eliminating various problems during the implementation of the project even during the design phase.
In order to improve this process, we use project coordination, integrating all the disciplines involved: architecture, structure, plumbing, electrical, and others that may arise according to the need. The coordination consists of analyzing, verifying, comparing, and specifying all the production stages of a project, anticipating problems and rework that could occur during the construction process, due to project interference.

By using project coordination, it is possible to make the construction budget very close to the guaranteed real value, avoiding material waste and setbacks in the construction process. This way, there is a greater guarantee that the project will be executed according to the plan, without changes in its conception, avoiding the risk of delivering something different from what was contracted and thus preventing possible interference with a reduction in construction costs of up to 10%.
As an example of the implications of not coordinating projects, it results in poor execution quality, a higher rate of rework, an extended delivery period, and increased final project cost.

Currently, the most efficient way to avoid discrepancies between projects is through the BIM methodology. We use Revit and Navisworks for interference analysis in a secure and accurate manner, offering greater visibility between all developed projects, including in real-time, rather than relying solely on architectural drawings. In addition to 3D drawings, BIM features parametric elements that link plans to data to anticipate issues and ensure efficient project execution, avoiding rework and waste.
BIM is a system created to gather all the elements related to the development of a project, providing various pieces of information. It allows organizing in a single electronic file, a database of the entire project, which can be accessed by all the involved designers, whether they are engineers or architects, minimizing the noise and interferences that may occur throughout the process.

Another challenge that we can manage with BIM coordination is short deadlines, thus improving communication, integration, and coordination among disciplines.

The main benefits of performing a coordinated project are: preventing errors and rework, conducting more accurate budgeting, adhering to the schedule, reducing costs, and preventing pathologies caused by interferences.
