BIM Management Strategy: 4 Key Benefits

Construction Tech Review | Saturday, December 26, 2020

BIM Implementation Plans (BEP) promote instant contact between teams at the very start of the construction project, help coordinate roles and priorities, and ensure that effective communication is accessible to all stakeholders.

FREMONT, CA: Building Information Modeling (BIM) is still regarded first as a design technology in construction, and is yet to completely saturate the field. According to the report, only 41 percent of construction companies used any form of BIM in the sector.

While innovative technology is increasingly increasing in the industry, there are significant implementation challenges that restrict access. As with most jobsite material management processes today, conventional door, frame, and hardware workflows include tiresome documentation, regular phone calls, and faxes, and demanding teamwork. In its early implementation, field BIM advantages include saving money, speeding schedules, ensuring efficiency, preventing rework, and managing risks related to construction field operations.

Collaboration

Each construction project varies considerably from the last one and may have different specifications depending on the project's needs, regulations, and internal standards. Since the BIM implementation plan is a living breathing document, the project team should collaborate in real-time on different project phases, eliminate unnecessary silos between project tasks and allow sufficient attention to be paid to the specific project, regardless of the specifications or standards in place.

Communications

BIM Implementation Plans (BEP) promote instant contact between teams at the very start of the construction project, help coordinate roles and priorities, and ensure that effective communication is accessible to all stakeholders.

Save time

A tight timeline is one of the greatest obstacles in any construction project. With a well-built BEP based on project benefits, no one will get bogged down with scrutinized information that can often cause damaging delays in project deliverables. Instead, only the most relevant specifics are worked on and available in this plan, helping manage the project's delivery schedule.

Sharing Data

Transparency is an immense benefit that BIM's development plans bring since they are readily accessible to all teams and stakeholders from the start of the project. Contractors to project owners and others can now have direct access to BIM implementation data (including file formats, specifications, and model dimensions) in an easily shared manner and can be modified regularly.
