3D modeling, more generally, has brought tremendous improvements to design and construction. It provides a digital idea before even sinking money onto the physical assets.
FREMONT, CA: Over the past few years, BIM has been a helping hand to the construction as well as contractors. One of the most misconceptions is that BIM is just a technology, or it can also be referred to as the 3D design. BIM is the method of creating and managing all information about a project. BIM is associated with the design and preconstruction. It benefits almost all the phases of the project life-cycle even after the building is complete. BIM also permits the projects to be built virtually even before they are constructed in real-time. It eliminates most of the inefficiencies and problems that arise during construction procedures.
The 3D models the contractors use for the design purpose makes it very easy for them to share ideas with the clients. 3D modeling also aids in securing people without specialist architectural training to view the plans and to visualize the complete result. Having a 3D model has become one of the essential parts of the construction. The BIM can invest time in 3D models without even utilizing the BIM data.
Even though BIM creates 3D models as an automatic part of the design procedures, BIM also enables the management to design plans, and later present them to clients or others without specialized architectural training and extra planning. It also permits open accessibility, allowing anyone to explore or even edit with proper permission. It helps the design teams, architects, and modelers to become proactive in their workflow with the clients on construction projects.
BIM follows a building throughout and continues to add value to all who interact with it in the future. It offers valuable data to those seeking to undertake renovations, and point cloud scans of an existing site can be produced to offer BIM benefits to contractors making updates to older structures.
Other than that, BIM also bridges the digital space between the construction site and office, restricting people on the field and the boardroom to work in an isolated way. Combining and linking the compliance and quality processes to the BIM model makes it easier to improve the projects' as-built documentation and define onsite quality processes across teams.
