Building Information Modeling (BIM) is rising as an innovative way to manage projects, BIM expedites collaboration within stakeholders, which will lead to improved profitability, reduced costs, better time management, and improved client relationship. BIM not only allows design and construction teams to work more efficiently, but it allows them to obtain the data they generate during the process to gain from operational and maintenance activities.
Architects - BIM started to evolve with architects with its emerging value in the design phases. Most in the design community, along with many contractors (43%) and owners (41%), say that architects experience a high level of value.
Structural Engineers – With elements as steel columns, beams, and trusses that are frequently modeled by users of the Structural community, structural engineers can reap a high level of value from BIM. Contractors are most probable (47%) to see structural engineers realizing significant benefits.
Construction Managers and General Contractors – Construction involves a huge amount of cost and any rework would further add to the expenses. Owners are the most likely (57%) to see Construction Managers or General Contractors gaining high value on a project, most likely because of the savings from avoiding any rework.
Fabricators - BIM reduces conflicts and facilitates clash detection to optimize building plans. Accurate fabrication of materials reduces waste while the pre-assembly can save time. Contractors (56%) are far more likely to see fabricators experiencing a higher value than architects (23%), engineers (38%), or owners (30%).
MEP Engineers – BIM has an array of opportunities for MEP coordination. It’s convenient to model larger elements such as duct systems and air handlers, while smaller components such as electrical switches and outlets might prove more challenging. Notably, very few engineers (22%) collectively see MEP engineers reaping high value. Nearly half of contractors (45%) believe MEP engineers see the significant value.
INDOVANCE Inc delivers a full range of BIM modeling projects. We work on parametric family creation, model creation for all LOD (Level of Detail), 4D, 5D, and 6D support, and model phasing, as well. We also provide complete support for CAD to BIM, point cloud to BIM conversions, and PDF to BIM conversions.
