Reasons To Adopt BIM
Building Information Modeling (BIM), or BIM, is quickly becoming the standard in building and project design. This model-based approach is used for both communication and collaboration. BIM is a software which is majorly used by architects, engineers and builders to design buildings or any other complex construction model. BIM allows a designer to create, visualize and modify all the ‘digital models’ of their building designs.
A BIM file is an information-rich collection of data that can be accessed and collaborated on by different stake-holders – from t he design team to contractors. Construction engineers, and Owners. The implementation of BIM can save time &money, provide realistic models at every step of a project’s life-cycle, etc.
- Faster Project Delivery– BIM saves up to more than 50% of your time. It eliminates the design changes in the later stages by using standard design elements for solving the complex construction issues before the project goes on site, as to avoid clashes. BIM gives an additional advantage of ‘automation within the model’ for checking the design integrity producing fabrication and construction drawing for the data available.
- Better Outcomes– All stakeholders like the architects, contractors and engineers are using a single, shared 3D model to work in collaborative relationships. This will ensure everyone’s focus is on delivering the best out-put at every stage of the process.
- Optimized Solutions– By using the new modeling technologies of BIM, solutions can be optimized cost-effectively against all the agreed parameters.
- Coordinate Steps & Processes– the 3D model can be used to create a set of sub-models to represent each stage of the construction process. Some elements of these sub-models can be set to update and evolve automatically, saving more time and effort in the design process. Just as importantly, the sub-models can be saved and consulted by engineers, construction workers, and other professionals during construction. This will give a detailed, accurate step-by-step guide to help ensure that all those meticulous plans and models are re-created accurately on the ground
- Enhanced Performance– BIM makes it possible for us to perform an accurate and swift and comparison of different and contrast design options, by enabling development of more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable solutions for everybody.
- Reduced Waste– BIM helps in reducing waste by a précised programmed schedule which ensures just-in-time delivery of both the materials and the equipment. More waste recovery and efficient handling of materials is also possible with the help of automated fabrication of equipment and components.
- Continual Improvement – BIM also gives regular and continuous information on feedback about the performances of all the processes and items of the equipment which are driving improvements on consequent projects.
- Stay in Control of Your Work – BIM Systems typically functions such as autosave and connections to a project history to ensure that additions and changes are never lost and that deleted or corrupted file need not be a disaster.
