BIM (Building Information Technology) is a procedure that links all the necessary parts of the design and construction process. It has swiftly taken over the AEC industry and replaced old practices with more efficient and operative options. BIM allows engineers, contractors and clients to create multidisciplinary projects successfully. BIM offers a thorough understanding of a project that enables the architects, stakeholders, clients and engineers to make better decisions.
The introduction of BIM in Canada has changed the way building models were perceived before in the country. Through an explicit representation of a project’s physical and functional characteristics, BIM offers a platform that improves project planning and execution. Let us look at the reasons why every project needs BIM:
To Improve Communication and Collaboration
BIM provides a secure exchange of information – accessible for every project member. An integrated database is created which promotes collaboration at all levels, thereby decreasing the chances of flaws, and ensures a smooth working relationship between the stakeholders and the contractors. Improved communication cuts down the approval time leading to improved quality of work and productivity.
Stimulation and Visualization
Stimulation tools used in BIM help designers to visualize the long-term effects such as seasonal change or energy performance of the building. The software used provides the project team members with a detailed analysis and helps them achieve high efficiency.
Using a shared model leads to less number of reworks and curtail replication of drawings. BIM drawing tools are faster than 2D drawing tools, and every item is connected to a database which provides the number and size of windows for quantity takeoff which are automatically updated as the model progresses.
To Resolve Clashes
BIM tools help detect clashes early and reduce the overall cost of the project. BIM model accurately conveys the project outcome before even the first brick is laid. All the elements are manufactured offsite to avoid conflicts on site.
For Client Satisfaction
A BIM model improves overall quality, speed, transparency while exchanging information and consistency, which gives the client utmost satisfaction and make them happy with your work.
