DH Land's 5D BIM Success Story with Cubicost TAS, TRB & TBQ

DH Land Sdn Bhd, a renowned property developer, embarked on the challenging Sandville Residence project in Penang, Malaysia. The project presented several unique obstacles. The design remained unfinished, and the company was accustomed to traditional construction methods. Additionally, they faced a tight deadline. As a result, they needed to swiftly grasp new software and explore its many features on the fly.
