Applications of BIM Technology in the AEC industry

The latest technology popularly known as BIM technology is not just software but both process and software which represent a new paradigm in the AEC industry. BIM technology is all about 3d intelligent dimensional models which help in making an important role in the workflows and entire project delivery process. This technology ensures that it encompasses all major disciplines and systems within a single virtual model for different stakeholders like engineers, architects, suppliers, owners, subcontractors, architects, and suppliers, etc to collaborate more efficiently and effectively. Therefore integration of all different roles of stakeholders, business practices, and their organisational structures creates more accuracy and effectiveness in the project design work and overall workflow.

Below mentioned are the different application of BIM technology:-

  1. A) Enhances cost estimation-One of the essential feature of BIM technology is its cost estimating feature. Due to this feature, materials get automatically updated and extracted whenever even if any minute changes take place in the model.
  2. B) Easy to generate shop drawings/Fabrication-With the help of BIM technology, shop drawings becomes easy to generate for different building systems. For e.g. sheet metal shop drawings can be easily be produced.
  3. C) Visualisation-Because of BIM technology, 3d rendering can be easily generated in house using extra Efforts
  4. D) Facilities management-This technology helps the facility management department with space planning, renovation, maintenance operations, etc.

BIM is considered a boon for the AEC industry because it creates more automated, comprehensive, and flourishing ways of working for Industrial Growth. BIM is a smart 3D insightful tool that helps professionals in different stages like plan, design, and manages infrastructure in the AEC industry. At C-Design, we require inputs from the client’s side in form of CAD drawings, rough ideas, images in any format, 2D files, PDF images, hand-drawn sketches so that output PDF files, 2D or 3D Revit files can be offered at competitive rates. BIM software proves to be valuable not only to designing engineers but also for consultants, construction builders, cost management, and project management fields
