Building Information Modeling:
BIM is, above all, a developing building model. This model is used when presenting and visualizing building components, construction sequences, resource allocation and other disciplines of the construction process in a virtual environment.
It is an object-oriented building progress tool that utilizes 4D-modeling concepts. Examples of this are Autodesk Revit, Teklastructure and ArchiCADsoftwares.
The BIM process generates a 3D Model that encompasses the geometric and geographic information of the building, as well as its components’ properties.
Incorporation of BIM in our Design Process
Regardless of the various definitions of BIM (Building Information Modeling or Building Information Management), our team’s core usage of BIM is in how it can benefit our clients and push their projects further.
Applying BIM correctly can do wonders to the company. Statistically:
25% of man hours and resources saved.
40% of engineer’s working hours saved (that would otherwise be used to find the correct information in order to proceed with their design).
15% of project cost averted (through producing a well-coordinated project).
BIM is much more than 3D modeling. Using software such as Revit, Bentley Work Station, or Archi Cad does not mean that the product is a BIM output. The drafter could be using one of the features of the software, clash detection, in order to produce a coordinated model.
BIM offers a big difference throughout the life cycle of the project: design > construction > operation and maintenance. It works towards consistently providing quality design that serves both the client and the end user.
Even after the cycle of the project is complete, there is a final BIM-infused stage. The project’s facility management keeps all the information related to the project inside the 3D model after construction is complete.
Our team adapts notions of BIM to produce quality output to our esteemed clients within the shortest possible timeframe, without sacrificing excellence or coordination.
