The construction industry’s path to modernization has benefitted significantly with the adoption of BIM. Traditional construction methods are transformed with BIM services which help the established companies to offer innovative services, adding value to the projects. One of the significant factors that contributed to the BIM Adoption in the UK is the Government Strategy (May 11) targeting the implementation of the BIM Level 2 construction model. As per the new research report of Markets & Markets, BIM market in Switzerland is expected to grow from USD 3.56 Billion in 2017 to USD 7.64 Billion in 2022, which shows the significance of the digital representation of buildings. Moreover, as per Transparency Market Research, the BIM Market for the Australia, New Zealand & India which was worth US$214.0 mn in 2015 is expected to reach US$1,335.3 mn by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 22.3% from 2016 to 2024.
Popular software applications in BIM:
· Fabrication Suite
· 3DS Max
· Level 1: Partial Collaboration - Managed CAD in 2D or 3D - At this level, 3D CAD for concept work & 2D Drawings for drafting approval documentation & production info are utilized. Data is shared from common environment managed by contractors. A common data environment is shared online hosting project data. At this level, generated models are not available for stakeholders.
· Level 2 BIM: Greater Collaboration - Managed 3D environment with data, but in separate discipline models – At this level all project stakeholders use BIM Models but don’t work on the same shared model. Design data is shared through common file, enabling the creation of combined BIM Model which can be checked for clashes.
· Level 3 BIM: Complete Collaboration - Single, online, project model with construction sequencing, cost & life-cycle management info. There is complete collaboration among various disciplines. A single shared model hosted centrally enables stakeholders to get the access to the model. The stakeholders are also capable of modifying and eliminate conflicting data. Moreover, there could be full integration (iBIM) in a cloud-based environment.
· Boost in Productivity – When information is shared in a faster way, productivity is bound to increase with reduced rework and improved collaboration. With the increase in productivity, cost is lowered and projects are planned with greater competence.
· Higher Quality – Effective management of detailed info is expected to result in higher quality buildings. Complex buildings with more facilities can be designed and built in the future.
· Enhanced Clash Detection – BIM can detect clashes and improve the efficacy of the project.
