BIM, FM and Outsourcing - the Revolution for Design/Build

Posted by Scott Shuppert on Wed, May 03, 2017 @ 05:23 PM

If BIM is the revolution in Design/Buils then what’s the technology behind the revolution?  Some may say it’s the software, some may say it’s the models, but we think it’s about people, process and collaboration.

From a CAD Service provider’s perspective, one of the most valuable additions that BIM offers is the ability to work more closely with the people who send us their CAD work.  While we may specialize in CAD conversion, the truth is that today, CAD conversion is no longer about someone sending us a file to convert, and more about collaborating with the design team to ensure that they have all the bits and pieces of information in their BIM model.

Invariably, as a design/build project progress, this means that we get to interact with a lot of different players on the team.  There’s no longer the hard-and-fast divide between architects and contractors, engineers and subcontractors and outsource service providers. BIM plays a significant role in promoting collaboration between all project stakeholders, improving efficiency and profitability for all concerned – including clients. However, not every contractor and subcontractor feels yet inclined to assume the responsibility for promoting and championing BIM.

In the UK, the government is set to require fully collaborative 3D BIM on all public sector projects by 2016. In fact, word-wide the acceptance of Building Information Modeling in the construction industry has become nearly standard.
