Understanding what makes general contractors different from specialty contractors can be a little tough for some. Continue reading to know what makes specialty contractors distinctive. Also, get to know how BIM service providers can assist contractors to reach the profitable growth. BIM service providers can help them to address challenges and can make their job easy. 

Specialty contractors like drywall contractors are facing increasing numbers of challenges like not being paid in time or in full. Believe us when we say, BIM for drywallcontractors or general contractors can address such challenges. 

Wondering How BIM can Help Drywall Contractors? 
Specialty contractors who are working with drywall are coupled with an understanding of safety implications, code requirements, and government norms. They know everything about the products that they have to install.

BIM enables every stakeholder to access design information on diverse materials in use and effectively collaborate on the project. BIM offer insights into design feasibility. Now, as specialty contractors are the most knowledgeable and experienced with the task they are hired for, BIM implementation can assist them with the followings

General Contractors Can Hire These Services from Pinnacle

The construction industry is reaping the benefit of BIM to the fullest. Estimators, project managers, subcontractors, and designers are using BIM to improve their work processes. As BIM technology is improving with every passing year and increasing numbers of companies have started adopting it, the construction industry as a whole is getting benefitted. 

1.    Better Collaboration and Communication
Virtual BIM Models enable users to share, collaborate on a cloud-based platform such as Autodesk’s BIM 360. The collaboration among stakeholders can seamlessly occur through all trades involved in a certain project. The BIM platform allows the team to share project models and ensures that every stakeholder can offer insights into the project. 

Cloud access makes it easier for project teams to seamlessly collaborate among office and field. On Autodesk’s BIM 360 tools, units can always see, make changes and review designs and models on site. BIM environment ensures all stakeholders have access to up-to-date data at any given point of time. 

2.    Cost Estimation
AEC firms that have started using BIM is realizing that including estimator at the first stage of planning allows for more efficient cost estimation; which has contributed to the growth of model-dependent cost estimation (known as 5D BIM). Using tools like Autodesk’s Revit and BIM 360 Docs accelerate the task of calculating and applying costs. This allows estimators to focus on other important factors such as factoring risks. 

3.    Improved Clash Detection
BIM platform allows stakeholders to better coordinate subcontractors, detecting any type of external and internal clashes before the actual construction process starts. General contractors worry about possible clashes, like will electrical conduits clash with steel beam? Does every doorway have required clearance? Every possible clash can be detected with BIM software like Autodesk’s BIM 360 Glue.
