BIM has become a competitive advantage among the professionals of the industry. But there are challenges. In Design-Build projects the builder’s design manager and the designer’s BIM manager can have confused roles creating duplication and gaps in management. Too many “cooks” can create conflicts and clashes which waste time. Good, clear processes overcome these and other challenges.
These workshops clarify the questions occurring in every BIM-centric project process and offer and best practices for truly Lean, productive design-build teams. Questions covered include:
- How best can we coordinate BIM during PreCon and Design using trade input?
- How can we get our builder’s design manager and architect’s BIM manager working together?
- When should we move from SketchUp to modeling in BIM?
- What are Lean BIM methodologies?
- How do modeling teams share progress?
- What is the role of BIM in Set Based Design and Target Value Delivery?
- How are models submitted for approval?
- What administrative tasks do we need to optimize?
- What’s the biggest waste during BIM tasks?
- How are deliverables verified against BIM requirements?
- How do we consolidate all BIM requirements?
- Who does the BIM verification and how often?
- How does the builder team know when a BIM model is ready to use?
In which aspects is BIM beneficial?
Transparency – Collaborative work enables the participation of all players, who have access to all the information and details available for all areas of the work.
Real-time data update – Technology combined with collaborative work allows you to integrate and change drawings and details automatically.
Unique language for all – BIM enables integrated communication between all parties involved.
Intelligent drawing – The drawings have detailed information, for example, calculations can be done automatically, and information is added simultaneously to the graphic part of the project.
Geographical evaluation of the project location – BIM allows an analysis of the geographic and social impacts of the structure to see the viability of the construction work in the given location.
More effective execution – By virtually representing the project and still counting on the collaborative work of all the parties involved, BIM makes it possible to predict errors and avoid unforeseen events, as well as verify the feasibility of the construction site, which makes the project more efficient, reducing time and cost overruns.
Precise timeline – BIM is present throughout all phases of the project’s life cycle, and when associated with a schedule of activities, it enables all space requirements, work resources, materials and deliverables to be transmitted.
Personal, company and country marketing – BIM has become a competitive advantage among the professionals of the industry: for architectural and engineering offices and construction companies alike. At the same time, BIM has also the potential to bring better results to governmental management.
