Typically, service providers identify physical openings in partitions through in-situ marking and cutting during construction. Openings are sometimes cut in error or out of sequence.
This unstructured format is untraceable as the openings were not recorded as individual elements and therefore do not leverage the potential LC (Lean Construction) benefits made possible through BIM. Without an established BEP (BIM Execution Plan) to define the processual sequence of works required for interdependent contractors to model and track openings, clients do not have full visibility of the quantity, potential cost, or impact on the construction schedule, elevating the projects overall risk profile. Furthermore, without adequate modelling of openings through an established, controlled and agreed process, the openings marked or cut in error are typically unidentifiable from those which are genuinely required. For contractors, the risks are equally high as seeking commercial recovery for untraceable service openings within the partitions is difficult and more likely to become a source of conflict.
