The AEC Associates Building Information Modeling Services promise to introduce a comprehensive and efficient building management system that is less error prone than all the existing systems. Building Information Modeling is a new age process that enables the architects and other professionals to work in complete cohesion to ensure that nothing goes wrong during the building process and clients to manage their facility better after moving in. However, construction and facility management is just one aspect of the process; Building Information Modeling services also bring several other advantages to the industry professionals and building owners alike. Let us take a look at some of the benefits BIM offers.
- Envelops building’s entire lifespan:
Unlike all the existing building systems that are responsible for the structure only till the commissioning stage, BIM envelops the entire lifecycle of a structure from design conceptualization to demolition stage. It’s a shared information resource for information for all the stakeholders that also enables the building owners/ operators to take right decisions based on right information.
- More comprehensive system:
CAD software brought a new vitality to the building design and construction process by enabling architects to work in three dimensions instead of the traditional way of working in two dimensions. However, Building Information Modeling Services introduce a system that can work in five dimensions; time and cost being the added dimensions. One can thus prepare accurate cost estimations and time schedules even as the design is being developed.
- Life-like views and accurate drawings:
BIM design tools allow the designers to extract different views from a building model. Since the views are based on a single definition of each object instance and are always consistent; you can obtain accurate drawings and life-like views from just any angle you want. BIM defines objects as parameters and relations to other objects; so the dependent objects are automatically altered once changes are made to any object.
- Efficient construction and facility management:
BIM allows attributes to be allocated to each model component, making it simple to select and order them automatically. It also makes providing cost estimations and tracking and ordering of materials simpler and more efficient.
Building Information Modeling services make life easier for all the stake holders including the owners of the buildings. They use a process that minimizes the information losses and helps the designers and owners/ operators take the informed decisions all through the building lifecycle.
