E. Klink, a Danish HVAC contractor that is part of the Aarsleff Group, is a pioneer in the field of building and maintaining energy-optimised ventilation systems.
For over 75 years, the company has performed ventilation undertakings on some of Denmark's most complex construction projects, ranging from hospitals and laboratories, to enterprise HQs and museums.
Challenges with Construction Inspections of Technical Installations
In 2019, the company launched a new initiative called Digital Design with 3D BIM technology, with the aim to ensure high quality during the project design phase.
However, throughout the actual construction phase, site inspections for quality control of piping systems and air terminals were still majorly done through manual spot checks. These methods are too slow and subjective to document the As Built status, covering only a small percentage of the entire project. As a result, these bore a high risk of issues staying overlooked, with severe complications and costs surfacing only later in the project.
