INTEGRATED PROJECT DELIVERY THROUGH BIM
Do you think digital planning with BIM and plant design is for design teams only? Think again
Digitised construction processes are key to managing scarce resources. With Hilti as an Integrated Project Partner providing Integrated Design Services, your design, construction and facility teams can leverage industry-compliant BIM methodology to increase productivity before, during and after construction.

OPTIMISE DESIGN WITH INDUSTRY-COMPLIANT BIM METHODOLOGY
MEP supports and firestop solutions – for efficient installations and clash detection
Integrated Design Services with 3D visualisations can help you optimise MEP installations, such as multi-trade supports that include firestop solutions, before construction begins. Find ways to save material, avoid on-site improvisation and reduce construction time.
Value engineering – for safer and more efficient buildings
What are your needs? We'll design for it. If standardisation, flexibility or modularity are your priorities, we'll deliver an optimised proposal. For firestop this can help reduce the number of engineering judgments required and gives you greater visibility over those you have.
Clash detection for MEP supports and firestop – to avoid improvised solutions on site
You see potential clashes before work begins on site, helping you to avoid ad-hoc solutions. BIM's what-you-see-is-what-you-get 3D visualisation of MEP supports and fire protection systems makes design optimisation easier – long before construction begins.
Digital-to-Field model creation – for trustworthy documentation
Information on existing buildings can be patchy. By importing measurements of walls, slabs, rebar and some MEP elements from digital twinning devices into your model, you'll improve operations readiness and streamline maintenance management.
Design optimisation in action
KEEP PROJECTS ON SCHEDULE WITH DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
Pre-fabrication: kitting, cutting and pre-assembly – save time and labour
Having a detailed digital model opens the door to prefabrication. Shop drawings can be exported with a few clicks. Cut out the manual prep for MEP supports with kitting, cutting and pre-assembly, or take advantage of cutting and kitting services for firestop. Save time and waste and reduce room for error.Watch video
Construction robots – for more productive MEP installations
What if a robot could take on repetitive work, help reduce the risk of human error and complete MEP projects faster, more safely and more accurately? Using digital planning as a base, the semi-autonomous drilling robot Jaibot is taking mechanical, electrical, plumbing and interior finishing installation work to the next level.Read more about the Hilti Jaibot
Digital-to-Field – for high-speed jobsite layout
In practice, Digital-to-Field means guided positioning of drilling points for MEP supports, anchors and cast-in components like anchor channels or firestop sleeves. Advanced layout tools can read your BIM files and design outputs directly and use a built-in laser to locate points from the model in reality. Cast-in solutions can boost productivity by saving labour, bringing post-installation flexibility and cutting out work steps.
Validation – instantly prove that you have built to spec
In an end-to-end process, a digital building model is the single source of truth. It’s easier to integrate validation processes: the model shows what to install where, and the related proof can be linked to the model for easier documentation generation. Tools like impact drivers with the Adaptive Torque module or software like Firestop Documentation Manager save validation information automatically while you install.Watch video
BENEFIT FROM BIM AND DIGITISED PLANNING IN BUILDING MANAGEMENT
Digital twinning – for accurate and complete as-built documentation
Once the building is up and running, digital wall scanners like our PS series multidetectors and advanced layout tools like our PLT 400 can help keep your digital model up to date. These tools offer a more efficient way to document retrofits or modifications, and transfer them to the model directly.
Validation and operations readiness
Anyone responsible for making sure a building's safety systems pass their inspections knows how much paperwork is involved. With laser scanning equipment, BIM and other digital construction management solutions for handover documentation, you can enjoy the peace of mind that your as-built documentation will be helpful during the whole building life cycle.
Designed for smooth operations
By partnering with Hilti early on in your project, operation requirements can be incorporated into the design. The proposals you receive aim to be optimised for the whole lifecycle, especially the efficient management of inhabited buildings.
INTEGRATED DESIGN SERVICES
Solve construction site productivity issues before they happen. Integrated Design Services can help you lower material costs, slash installation time and avoid on-site improvisation, but only if you partner with Hilti early in the design phase. Take MEP, for example. Without integrated design, support structures are planned onsite and separately by each trade. With Hilti as an Integrated Project Partner, you can leverage industry-compliant BIM methodology to design support structures shared by all trades.
Discover how your construction business can benefit from our Integrated Design Services:You can work towards these and other productivity benefits via our main services:
Set a clear starting point and divide the project into conceptual solutions.
- Project divided into individual applications
- Optimised schematic design proposal for MEP supports and firestop solutions
Evolve the concepts into design proposals, defined by engineering reports.
- Designed MEP supports (“typicals”) optimised for high-repetition and/or complex cases
- Designed fire solutions optimised for reliability and repeatability, such as cast-in fire protection devices
- Engineering reports
- Individual exception reports
3. BIM modelling
Add the designed supports directly into your BIM model and report any issues that may need re-design.
- MEP supports added to model
- Fire protection systems added to model
- Report of exceptions (issues)
For a smoother transfer of the design from the office to construction on the jobsite.
- Shop drawings
- Overview drawings
- Digital-2-Field data
- Bill of materials
- Suggestions for cutting, kitting and pre-assembly services
5. Collaboration Service
We also provide a collaboration service to support you throughout the entire project. We'll even be on site for regular alignment meetings.
BIM construction equipment can save time and labour
Firestop cast-in sleeves
Think of cast-in devices as box-out formwork sleeves and passive fire protection for cable/pipe penetrations in one. You can include it in your BIM models. A major labour-saver, you avoid firestop foams and coated board.Configure and buy cast-in firestop Download Revit® family
Advanced layout tools
Construction total stations and digital layout tools like the Hilti PLT 400 can read your BIM files directly – no manual point selection necessary. Upgrading to these digitised tools typically makes the work of laying out jobsites a much faster, one-person task.Learn more about the Hilti PLT 400
Adaptive Torque system
When fitted with the AT module, compatible impact wrenches can automatically torque and re-torque anchors in compliance with approvals. The tool also saves installation data for inspection reports.Approved fastenings the quicker way
