Leasing BIM Software
What is BIM Software?
BIM software has taken the market by storm over the past two years and it is fantastic to see it benefiting a range of professional firms. But what is BMI, what are the benefits and how can WestWon help with implementing this software into your business? Firstly, BIM stands for ‘Business Information Modelling’ and if you are going by definition, it can be described as below:
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle; defined as existing from earliest conception to demolition (NBIMS-US, 2016).
However, it can far more easily be described as a 3D model based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to be able to efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.
What is the process of BIM?
The process of BIM supports the creation of intelligent data that can be used throughout the lifecycle of a building or infrastructure project. Plan, design, build and operate are the four key aspects of the software.
Benefits of using BIM Software
Over the past few years the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals have experienced a range of benefits from using the software. It allows design and construction teams to work more efficiently, but it allows them to capture the data they create during the process to benefit operations and maintenance activities.
According to recent studies here are some of the benefits that companies have experienced:
- Labor productivity– A 75% to 240% increase in labor productivity for modelled and prefabricated areas was found (Poirier, 2015).
- Reducing costs– Savings on paperwork and material costs have resulted in positive returns on investment (Agarwal et.al, 2016).
- Faster Delivery– 50% reduction in overall time, from inception to completion on new builds and refurbished assets.
- Higher Quality Work– It allows for more flexibility and less time spent on coordination and more on solving real architectural problems.
