Pre-construction and construction stages across a buildings lifecycle are vastly influenced by BIM. This influence is gradually spreading onto other stages and areas of a building design and construction project – especially the operational stages. This has made it mandatory for facility managers to brace up and be ready for the modern technology influenced methods of working.
This widespread use of BIM across the construction lifecycle is only logical, because it not only brings about cost and time efficiencies to a project but is also responsible for enabling streamlined processes, less liabilities, high quality, better coordination and higher collaboration. Besides, in UK, the government has made use of level 2 BIM mandatory by 2016, the Dubai municipality has also mandated the use of BIM for large scale construction projects, and Australia is also mulling over the BIM mandate, and will possibly pass it soon.
