Adopting BIM for Facilities Management – A Trend on the Rise


Today, even as the BIM revolution has taken the construction industry by a storm, and has created significant time and cost efficiencies, its full-fledged use for facility management is yet to become commonplace.

According to BIM expert Bhushan Avsatthi; Hi-Tech Outsourcing Services, ‘The trend is changing. Today, especially when we talk of complex and large projects, a comprehensive BIM approach is adopted. This means, client wants to extract everything they can out of BIM and this includes facility management capabilities as well.’

Building Mega Structures across UAE Skyline – New Era of BIM Efficacy


Building information modeling is no more the wonder word that the construction industry raved about. Today BIM has become vernacular of professionals working on building design and construction projects for large buildings and complex structures.

The question that construction firms are asking is not about whether to implement BIM or not, now it is all about how it will be executed. The industry has now accepted – rather BIM has time and again proven, that it is the most efficient technology expedited process that helps manage the full lifecycle of a building in the most efficient manner.

Adoption of BIM in the Middle East Construction Industry


In 2014 experts had predicted a surge in the adoption of BIM. We can already experience this change and increased demand for Point cloud to BIM as built structures, and extraction of complete building information modeling benefits by implementing it across the lifecycle for new construction projects.

Compared to other parts of the world, demand for BIM in the Middle East has increased remarkably. In fact, authorities in Dubai have made of BIM mandatory for large buildings, skyscrapers and complex architectures.

Using BIM for Construction Health and Safety


Onsite accidents resulting in injuries to people and damage to a lot of resources, is definitely not desirable. Such unwanted and unwarranted accidents, lead to a lot of liabilities and loss of both time and money.

Implementing BIM for Construction Health and Safety helps curb the risk of accidents and promote safety. Let us understand how…

BIM-Enabled Digital Fabrication of Structural Steel – An Advanced Approach

Complete and real benefits of BIM can be extracted only when it is used across all the aspects of a construction process and beyond. Today, a lot of firms have adopted BIM for project planning, scheduling, cost estimation facility management, etc.

However, why does it happen that the overall productivity rates of the projects still continue to fall? This is because, although a BIM approach is implemented across all these stages of building design and construction, they still miss out on the most important aspect of construction i.e. Building Information Models for Digital Fabrication.

MEP BIM Enabled Coordination - On Time Delivery and Higher ROI

Usually when it comes to building design, often the core focus is on several building features that create an appearance for the building - for example the shape, materials, finishes etc. However; what actually resides at the core is the structural framework and MEP coordination.

Introducing a Superior Facility Management System with BIM

Facility owners and managers have become tech savvy. They expect technology to expedite the process of facility management and to make it convenient and efficient. BIM as we all know; allows effective visualization and hence better understanding of problems and their solutions. It also gives facility managers better control over the building information.

BIM is the digital representation of a construction process and beyond. It ensures that all the data that is crucial to run a facility smoothly is accumulated throughout the design and construction process. As we mentioned earlier, you can find all the information integrated into the BIM model; this eliminates the need for paper drawings, and manual documentation that is extremely tedious and more complex than BIM.

BIM 5D Tools Redefine Construction: Simulation, Project Construction & Improved Project Management

5D BIM is an evolving segment in the construction industry, comprehending the customary three-dimensions of a BIM with schedule as the fourth dimension and cost estimates as the fifth dimension. This 5D BIM sketchup helps contractors to envision the cost of the entire project, the time-line for the project, when these expenses are projected to be incurred and much more. All this happens while bearing in mind the quantities of materials resulting from the model and the productivity rate of construction staffs.

4D BIM Promotes Onsite Safety – Drives ROI

According to a recent survey by McGraw Hill Construction, companies using (BIM) Building information modeling are reportedly experiencing higher ROI, faster production, improved safety & less liabilities. In 2007, when BIM was an emerging trend, the industry wide adoption of the technology was measured to be 28%, today it has increased to a whopping 71%. This can be credited to the increasing efficiency of BIM and its positive impact across the life cycle of a building.

Scan To BIM Software Advancements – Valued Proposition for Renovation of Retrofits and Heritage Buildings

BIM for retrofits was a relatively an unexplored domain, however for past few years, its popularity has grown at an exponential rate. This is because, it is now possible to survey an ‘As built’ environment using create BIM using supportive technologies like 3D laser scanning.

3 Types Of 3D BIM Clash Detection Have Their Own Importance

BIM or Building information modelling has set entire AEC industry abuzz! Over the years, it has proved to be quite useful to the architects, builders, engineers and contractors, providing them with amazing and valuable insights into inherent potentials of the structure for improvisation.

Since, BIM not only involves a single model; rather it is an amalgamation of different disciplines like structural, MEP and environmental engineering, etc. As all these disciplines work in tandem; it is important to establish a well-coordinated approach, where there is no clash!
