Integrated Project Delivery

Think BIM and plant design are for design teams only? Think again.

Integrated design services and digitized construction processes are key to managing scarce resources throughout your company. With Hilti as an integrated project partner, your design, construction and facility teams can drive efficient end-to-end workflows that help increase productivity before, during and after construction.

Optimizing your design with BIM and end-to-end planning

MEP supports and firestop solutions – for optimized installations and clash detection

Integrated design products let you optimize MEP installations before construction begins. Design multi-trade supports that include firestop solutions, and use 3D visualizations to find ways to save material, avoid onsite improvisation and reduce construction time.

Value engineering – for safer and more efficient buildings

What are your needs? We'll design for it. If standardization, flexibility or modularity are your priorities, we'll deliver an optimized proposal. For firestop this can help reduce the number of engineering judgments required and give you greater visibility over those you have.

Transparent logistics – to optimize jobsite deliveries

BIM models can bring predictability to the logistics chain, helping avoid bottlenecks. Control costs and streamline ordering with detailed BOMs, sequence deliveries, and track every step of the process. You'll have the right material in the right place at the right time.

Field-to-BIM 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.

How BIM can help keep your projects running on schedule

Offsite pre-assembly and prefabrication services are much simpler when working with BIM

Prefabrication: kitting, cutting and pre-assembly – save time and labor

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.

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.

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 directly and use a built-in laser to locate points from the model in reality. Cast-in solutions can boost productivity significantly by saving labor, 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: BIM 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.

Operation phase

The benefits of BIM for 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 BIM 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 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 your project, operation requirements can be incorporated into the design. The proposals you receive aim to be optimized for the whole lifecycle, especially the efficient management of inhabited buildings. 

Integrated design services from Hilti

Integrated design is a great way to help you lower material costs, slash installation time and avoid onsite improvisation, but only if you partner with Hilti early in the design phase. Hilti Integrated Design Services can help you avoid waste and problem-solving on the jobsite. Let's take MEP and firestop as examples. Without integrated design, the support structures – countless strut channels, trapezes, wires – are planned onsite and separately by each trade. With our help, you can switch to end-to-end planning of all trades in one go so that support structures can be shared. Add firestop to the process and you not only reduce the risk of onsite clashes between trades but also pave the way for innovative solutions such as cast-in fire protection devices. These easy-to-install sleeves are incorporated into the formwork and allow for easy inspection, reducing the risk of costly delays.  

You can work toward these and other productivity benefits via four main services:
