GAP BETWEEN BIM DESIGN AND ONSITE CONSTRUCTION

BIM has transformed the global outlook of the AEC industry and a lot has been debated about the implementation of BIM in the past few years. But there is only limited information on its usage, especially when it comes to onsite construction.

As much as BIM is helping in improving the construction business, there is a possibility of conflicts that might arise between the services like mechanical, electrical, structural, & other trades. The use of technologies such as Revit, Navisworks, Fabrication CAD, 3D rendering, etc is important for the advancement of the AEC industry, but bridging the gap between BIM design and onsite construction is equally as important.

Here are some ways how you can resolve these conflicts and necessary steps to avoid clashes on construction sites:

Change in Cultural Habits:

Humans are a big contributing factor in any industry and all project members must understand the complexity of the project. The team must know the vision of how this technology will make their job easier so that they are on par with the project. It is essential for the people involved in the project to be well acquainted with new technologies and get trained in them. This will also help them give their best to the project, especially with a thorough knowledge of the technology and its limitations.

Collaborative Effort: 

Everybody from the stakeholders, project managers to the onsite staff should be more than willing to learn new things about the technology by giving it their valuable time and by learning new ways to find appropriate solutions. If the field staff has some questions, they should be answered in an easy and elaborative manner. To successfully implement the project, there must be a collaborative effort from the supervisors and the staff working onsite.

Choose Appropriate Solutions:

Be aware of all the technologies available in the architecture, engineering and construction industry to be able to find an appropriate solution in case a challenge arises. The more aware you are of the problems and its solutions, the more definite would be the outcome of the project. It will help you increase the productivity and avoid clashes on the construction site.
