Discrepancies in construction delivery methods and contracts lead to the failure of BIM. It is time to rethink the contractual context for the BIM-enabled projects. Peter Cholakis, Chief Marketing Officer at 4Clicks Solutions shares industry insights.
Computers and technology have so far been used in the BIM industry. Recent developments have put forth the myriad advantages of modeling not only the graphical aspect but also the non-graphical aspect of building design life cycle.
The architecture profession in currently facing at least three important transformations: the integrated practice, the re-emergence of sustainable design, and building information modeling.
Often misquoted BIM is only for large projects with complex geometries. But with the right preparation and strategic planning, the adoption of BIM practices can be swift and highly effective for small firms. Here are some best practices from the BIM Experts...
Rich with information, BIM modeling services deliver architects a wealth of design-centric tasks and home builders a number of significant benefits including increased coordination, constructability analysis, BOQ, quantification, and cost estimation and so on.
Applying BIM to designing a building can deliver a plethora of economic, environmental and societal benefits to home builders – that go much further than the advantages of AutoCAD.
Transitioning to BIM platform is more than just a technology or process change; it's a culture change. Architectural Evangelist collects and disseminates best practices as a service to the architects, owners and construction professionals.
Despite all the bold assertions about Revit and its innovative features and flexibility, the scenario remains intact – architectural designers still slip into old "AutoCAD habits" when using AutoCAD Architecture & AutoCAD MEP. Why?
While the general concept of a private cloud is something that many IT professionals are familiar with, the actual creation and deployment of a private BIM cloud requires both a high level of IT skills as well as strong BIM technology expertise.
Making a strong decision to move to the BIM world is the very first step of BIM implementation in any project. Once you make decision, stick to it. Do not, at any cost, draw the conclusion at the first obstacle and go back to primary colored lines on the black screen.
The term Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been around for awhile, but in practice, BIM is still in its infancy and is still weighted heavily towards the front end of building design and construction.
Revit is a multi-users design tool that works like a champ on a local area network with all the designers sitting in the same office. But it doesn't fit the operational needs of the larger firms working on a large project from different locations. Let's ride the BIM Cloud!
