Building information modeling (BIM) involves planning and managing building-related data using various tools, technologies, and competencies. Founded on object-based 3D models, BIM is used for planning, coordination, and analyzing valuable data for development, design, construction, operations, and maintenance.
BIM in the construction industry is more than just software or a 3D model. The BIM construction management software includes a large volume of data regarding a project that can be shared with all stakeholders. Unlike more traditional workflows that depend on multiple file formats and isolated procedures that tend to fall out of sync when changes are made, the BIM construction management software is dynamic and follows a more coordinated approach to project management in the construction industry.
With conventional building techniques, information and data is often lost when leaving one phase and entering another. With BIM construction management, information is gathered and made accessible digitally for all necessary disciplines in the team. By adopting BIM, a secure information flow is created. Digital documentation exists for every stage of the construction process, from preliminary planning and design to handover and final recycling. This creates improved collaboration, accuracy, and efficiency among the stakeholders participating in the construction.
Moreover, when modifying the design, BIM in construction enables architects to foresee and avoid future building hazards. To comply with safety rules and pass on-site inspections, contractors may also guide their staff safely through every stage of the workflow and record the procedure.
Hence, as a part of your organization's data governance, forming a BIM strategy is key to becoming an optimized and data-driven organization in the building industry. Setting requirements and best practices for planning, handover, and maintaining data enable the organization to; increase productivity in tendering, improve quality assurance, avoid unforeseen events, and turn data into valuable insights for business development.
