**
Toru and Hazama Ando develop Visual Check-Connect (tentative name) to facilitate communication between architectural designers and BIM operators
*
Tou Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director and CEO: Yuki Noro), together with Ando Hazama Co., Ltd.
(Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director and President: Kazuhiko Kuniya, hereinafter referred to as Hazama Ando), is an architectural designer. This service enables BIM design instructions and efficient visual checks through a browser, with the aim of facilitating the communication of design instructions between the designer (hereinafter referred to as the “designer”) and BIM operators, and improving the efficiency of design review operations. System, (tentative name) Visual
We developed Check-Connect. *

* ■ System overview *
– Designers can now check 3D visuals of BIM on a browser without having to learn the complicated operations of BIM, and can also give instructions to BIM operators on the browser, improving usability. ・BIM operators will also be able to efficiently check instructions from designers and reflect them in BIM models.
– It will also lead to labor savings in setting up a company-wide BIM environment, allowing more resources to be devoted to core operations than ever before.
(Note 1) CDE common data environment. “A single source of information used to collect, manage, and distribute documentation, graphical models, and non-graphical data across a project team.”

* ■Comment from Kohei Fujino, DX Solution Division, Tou Co., Ltd. * This initiative was realized through the collaboration of Ando Hazama, who has been exploring and pursuing the ideal form of design work centered on BIM, and Toru, whose strengths are algorithms and software rooted in the construction industry. We hope that this initiative will help remove barriers to the spread of BIM, as business costs and training costs associated with design using BIM have become an industry-wide issue.
Toru will continue to aim to solve essential problems, strive to deeply understand industry and business issues, and deliver algorithms and software in a way that maximizes the value for companies. * ■ Comment from Hazama Ando, ​​Nittoji Yoshida, BIM Manager, Architectural Design Section, Construction Headquarters*
This is a system that allows BIM visual checking and instructions through a browser as part of a medium- to long-term BIM system environment development plan, with the aim of facilitating
communication with BIM by design decision makers in the future. It is a step-by-step development process. This eliminates the need for design decision makers to learn complicated BIM operations, and allows them to check BIM and communicate with BIM operators via a browser. In addition, this development has reduced the amount of work required to configure the internal BIM environment and significantly improved usability. In the future, we will proceed with the construction of an integrated usage environment based on this CDE (Common Data
Environment), which will lead to the expansion of our user base.
