Most firms in the design and construction industry have transitioned from simply investigating Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology to testing it on a few projects or even mandating its use on every job. For anyone still unsure about investing in a BIM program, we want to share some of the reasons that GHT finds it indispensable in delivering value to our clients:
- Design changes are immediately replicated throughout the model
- You can see in real-time 3D what works and what doesn’t work
- It offers dynamic scheduling capabilities
- You have the ability to review potential design or coordination issues on screen before they become problems in the field
What does this mean for the architects and owners we serve? Drawings can be finished faster. We see reduced errors. There are typically fewer field issues and change orders. All good things for the success of a project.
We talk about these benefits, as well as how our immersive training program supports our BIM services, in the March 2012 issue of PM Engineer. Download the PDF or read online for more information. Let us know about your BIM success stories.
