AEC professionals have discovered a new approach to construction with 3D BIM Modeling. The implementation of Building Information Modeling services by the engineers and architects has revolutionized the construction sector. In fact, BIM service has now become the talk of the town as it is providing a unique way to building construction. The construction professionals are getting unbelievable productivity by implementing BIM. Different stages of the construction including the planning, designing, construction as well as the post construction operations are reaping the benefits of BIM. A number of software applications like the Revit Structure, Revit Architecture and Revit MEP are catering BIM technology to develop building in a virtual world.
Generating Material Takeoff & Bill of Materials – Revit software generates material takeoffs & bill of materials in construction that help the building professionals to calculate project cost. 4D BIM tools are also used in this regard for estimating the total cost of the project.
Facilitating Green Construction & Energy Analysis – Building Information Modeling has brought the concept of green construction in the AEC industry, facilitating the engineers and the architects to swiftly develop green buildings and perform energy analysis for the structural, architectural & MEP systems. Revit is equipped with energy analysis tools that let the BIM modelers to build energy analytical models for every building. This helps to develop energy simulations and allow constructional professionals to understand the building’s energy requirement. Moreover, based on the result of the energy analysis, BIM modelers are able to implement changes in the design for reducing energy consumption.
Improving Communication & Project Execution – Furthermore, BIM is a powerful communication tool and helps in successful project execution. Parametric models developed during the pre-construction stage are quickly communicated to all the team members involved in the construction project and removes confusion and delay in work. The Revit models can easily collaborate with each other, leading to high quality error-free models.
