The days of 2D drawings are over, as the digital era brings with it 3D building information models that deliver bottom-line benefits. Trends may come and go, but every so often they end up shaping the world we live in, just like BIM (Building Information Modeling) did. Along with the standard design parameters, details such as geometrics, aesthetics, and thermal and acoustic properties are now included in a project so as to enable engineers to see how a decision affects the costs of a design at an early stage. In 2020, more and more companies are expected to move beyond 3D-BIM to 4D, 5D, and even 6D BIM. The global survey of 412 senior property leaders revealed that 89 percent believe BIM will have either a “significant” or “disruptive” impact on the development industry, while just 10 percent think it will have minimal or no impact.
Another major trend is that governments around the world are acknowledging the potential and the capability of BIM and looking to it for large public projects. They are finding the 2D models of concept visualizations outdated and unappealing and are really seeing the benefits of it for both construction and infrastructure projects. With this realization, comes the requirement of recognized accreditations and relegations to be put into place and met. Particularly in the AEC industry, this has led the 3D CAD modelling being overtaken by the BIM due to its comprehensive benefits. Along with this, organizations adopting green BIM technology and using it for education and advancement within the construction sector.
In the wake of these technology transitions, we are glad to feature top companies that are continually proving their mettle in the field of BIM services with several innovative technological capabilities and success stories up their sleeves.
With the BIM techniques gaining adoption, the builders are discovering new ways to compete, innovate, and grow profitably even as they face challenges from volatile costs, workforce shortages, proliferating regulations, and a host of evolving risks. Meanwhile, commercial real estate’s that are enabled by BIM, are particularly well poised to capture value in current global markets through the development of new functional solutions to address global unmet wants and needs.
We hope the issue of Construction Tech Review helps you build the partnership you and your firm need to enable technology-driven BIM.
