4D Modelling for Data Centers

Among the most complex types of buildings, Data centres are such structures that demand performance above and beyond expectations. To perform quickly, the IT and Electrical equipment in the Data centres generate a lot of heat, for which suitable cooling systems are required.

Also, maintaining an uninterruptible power supply is the end result. This is very clear. Overheating in server rooms can impact data rates accessed worldwide, impacting data-dependent services. Therefore, maintaining temperature and continuous power supply is critical to sustaining data centre computing power. Now let’s dive into the BIM services part and explore the effectiveness of BIM services in building data centres.

Building Information Modelling is commonly used for the 3D modelling of a site being constructed. The modellers or engineers take help from the CAD-drafted designs in 2D and then prepare a 3D or a 4D model for the site on REVIT, a BIM-based software.

Considering BIM for Data Centre construction, we need to model it with the most significant challenges. For example-

  • Less space, More Services
  • Easy Commissioning
  • Uninterrupted Power Supply
  • Air Flow Analysis

These are some of the most common but quintessential requirements and challenges around Data Center construction.

  • BIM services help visualize, plan and execute the adjustments required to implant as many services as possible in the available space. It allows us to sit and coordinate altogether so that the changes and adjustments can be settled without physical construction taking place. That saves a tremendous amount of time, as well as money, for which the entire AEC industry is thankful to BIM services, not only for the Data Centers but for any construction it may be.
  • Data Centres demand performance and reliability. Because of this, a robust commissioning process becomes essential that is quite difficult to conduct for every piece of equipment conventionally. BIM services include commissioning information tagging for equipment that can be added to the BIM model, making the commissioning process easily traceable through a live database. Advanced coordination checks through NAVISWORKS also offer a regular review process so that easy commissioning can happen before final execution.
  • An uninterrupted power supply can be easily set up with the help of a 3D model using a BIM tool and is coordinated with the other trades involved, like Fire Protection, etc.
  • The BIM model allows engineers to evaluate the server layouts based on thermal modelling. With the help of computational fluid dynamic simulations, engineers can accomplish this task with the help of a BIM model. When the CFD simulations are incorporated into the BIM model, the airflow inside the data center can be visualized along with the temperature variation across the building.

The main role of 4D modelling is to stimulate the entire construction process, displaying information and progress about the project at each step and an estimated time to complete the process. It is difficult to use for those who are not used to it. Software engineers are familiar with this model and can apply it to their projects. 4D may be out of reach for some low-level companies, but it can save you money in many ways. Also, 3D graphic design software is outdated and unable to support modern projects. It takes time and money. 4D reduces this consumption. This model is a less risky and safer tool. Owners and contractors can review projects that help identify problems and failures that reduce the risk of accidents and crises. 4D provides opportunities for creative thinking through communication and enhances corporate value.

The 4D model has a powerful and beneficial role in the development and planning of a construction project. It allows the construction planner and owner to view and make changes in the graphic designs according to their desire. It gives planners the best visualisations, enabling them to create better plans and maps. Building information modelling also comes as an addition to the fourth dimension of the 4D model.

  • Building information modelling (BIM) helps the owner and the planning contractor to improve construction design by eliminating unnecessary components that cause different issues and add other necessary information. BIM is the best construction management and planning tool that improves productivity.
  • 4D structural design also provides information on the estimated time it will take to complete construction. This stimulation process helps reduce construction time.
  • It also helps identify problems and compare actual and planned procedures.
  • The main advantage of 4D planning and stimulation is that it provides very clear communication and visualization.
  • It helps with advertisement and publicity of projects in the marketplace.
  • It increases the rate of production and reduces the waste of sources and money.
  • Moreover, it also identifies all the conflicts and resolves them.
