Why is BIM Important in the Construction Sector?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is technologically advanced software that aids architects to see their plans get digitalized and have a virtual look at their designs of the house. 

BIM is a valuable tool, especially for professionals who are engaged in the construction industry. With the virtual digitalized images of the houses that will show how it will be made and how it will look in the final stages, it makes the task of the concerned professional a bit easier as they can now make an informed decision with regard to the structure’s design and construction. BIM also plays a vital role in decreasing the wastage of the construction material where BIM quite accurately gives the dimensions that are required to be made in each stage. 

With so many professionals coming on the same and singular platform and working on the same project, BIM keeps updating them on the changes that have been made and also sometimes gives a different perspective when the plan is implemented and future courses of action can be planned accordingly. Such collaborative work is becoming more and more popular over the years and is making the work more multi-dimensional. 

BIM is used differently at different stages every time a construction project progresses and new developments have to take place. Due to this constant advancement of the BIM levels, there is something known as the ‘BIM Maturity Levels’. It is on these BIM Maturity Levels that various professionals work and give the inputs for one to design the output. 

BIM has been successful in making the construction industry better with the standards that they have now applied in their work. Due to this, there are several benefits of BIM that help various professionals, especially architects who are engaged in the construction industry: 

Enhanced Productivity – BIM boosts the productivity of the work significantly because the sharing of the information at one go makes the reach out of the developments and the changes to the structure much faster and hence informs every professional about the current status of the work. This also means that costs incurred in the construction will reduce and more efficient in terms of working on the project. 

Higher Data Storage – BIM is the best option when it comes to storing a vast amount of information with respect to the construction work that is being carried out. Different professionals handle big data differently and hence work efficiently for their projects. 

An Aid to Smaller Projects – BIM plays a vital role when it comes to ensuring that the construction materials have optimal utilization and no wastage is there. This helps the smaller projects to keep a tab on how the construction can progress without too much wastage. It also makes small businesses embrace technological advancement right from the beginning. 

The infrastructure of Better Quality – BIM not only helps in designing with precision but allows a structure to be built with the right management with the right approach leading to a good quality structure that is also built with precision. This leads to greater satisfaction both by the architects in their work as well as by their clients when it comes to using the structure. Also, parameters such as environment-friendly construction and modernization of the designed structures will be easier to be taken into consideration during the construction process.  

No Clash or Interference – Here the clash means that due to misinformation, some mistakes take place but BIM ensures that the professionals avoid such mistakes and hence no clash is there. BIM can help a lot in clash detection and as a result, there is an efficient work process in place.  

Hence, from the above, it is clear that BIM is the solution that the construction industry has been looking for, and with several examples to serve as evidence, BIM has really helped professionals with the construction management and designing of the structure. More is still yet to come in the form of technological up-gradation that will, in turn, increase the level of work, especially in the field of architecture.
