The system deployed by The AEC Associates BIM Outsourcing Services is faster, more efficient and less error-prone than any of the existing building systems. The models created by BIM outsourcing services provide a more holistic view of a building project and are considerably more beneficial to both the industry professionals and the end users alike. BIM is a new-age process that’s unique and different in many ways with the potential to change the entire face of the building industry. However, this same uniqueness often stops the professionals from adopting it wholeheartedly across all the stages of a project. This is why the world still hasn’t seen the whole range of Building Information Modeling. Following is a brief discussion on some of the futuristic applications of BIM that can work for the betterment of AEC industry.
- Efficient cost and time management:
While architects and other industry professionals were used to working in three dimensions- length, breadth and height; BIM allowed them to work in five dimensions, the additional dimensions being cost and time. Thus BIM outsourcing services is able to obtain the bills of materials and cost estimations along with the desired views even as the design is being developed. Similarly, it’s easy for them to prepare and stick to fairly accurate time schedules. The industry professionals stand to gain substantially in future by using these features extensively.
- A shared information resource:
BIM creates a virtual information model of the project that can be handed over to the principal contractor and sub-contractors, resulting in a smooth workflow. The same information can finally be transferred to the owners /operators of the building, helping them manage the facility more efficiently. Discipline specific data inputs are made by all the stakeholders to the model which is a shared information resource for everyone involved in the project, including the end-users. The usual information losses are minimized by using BIM, as a result. Building owners can use this shared information resource to take informed decisions in future for better facility management.
BIM outsourcing services can go a long way in making the workflow of the building industry more efficient and result oriented. We shall continue to enumerate more future applications of BIM in our next post.
