Reasons to Adopt BIM

Building Information Modeling (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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Optimized Solutions – By using the new modeling technologies of BIM, solutions can be optimized cost-effectively against all the agreed parameters.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

In BIM, data is directly added to the models who dictate the materials, functions, size and related information and then this data can be easily linked to most of the elements of that particular model.
