Leveraging the Benefits Of BIM 4D For Maximizing ROI

The use of BIM has grown exponentially in the construction industry for the past few years. Most of the developers and construction firms have adopted BIM, and those who have not, are definitely contemplating its adoption.

BIM 4D: Schedule + Time

A 3D model gains the fourth dimension when time and construction scheduling values are added to it. The USP of virtual design and construction for contractors is 4D BIM – Schedule and Time. BIM 4D shows the way to contractors, and when projects run as scheduled, it results into efficient construction process and hence increased ROI.

Demand of BIM for Quantity Surveyors on Rise in Middle East

The job of a quantity surveyor is integral to the construction project. A quantity surveyor is partly a legal expert, partly an engineer and partly an architect. The demand for quantity surveyors is on rise in the Middle East.

Consequently the demand of BIM - for quantity surveyors is also on rise. This is because there are several, infrastructural facility development, skyscrapers and high rises development and other such mega projects announced across Middle East. To fulfill the demands and challenges of these projects, it is important to have expert QS professionals on Board.

BIM 5D for Fabrication – Building Smart Construction Capabilities

Often, lack of the up-to-date information or having the wrong materials is the reason why construction projects fail to deliver what they promise.

Having access to BIM Coordination & Fabrication 5D Cost Estimation can help you optimize your projects, gain control over the work flows and drives your project towards success. So how can this happen? The answer is BIM.

Using BIM, architects and contractors can always stay updated about the design, fabrication and construction information. A BIM model can be used to integrate building design and detailing with fabrication and project management. This makes the construction work flows – that sales, detailing, fabrication, logistics and installation – more efficient.

Benefits of BIM for Building Surveyors

Building information modeling extends a collaborative approach where everyone involved in a construction project can enjoy the benefits. Now clearly, BIM offers benefits for architects, engineers, property owners and contractors, however can it help surveyors derive substantial benefits?

A surveyor’s job spans across the lifecycle of a construction project, and hence he can gain the best and extensive benefits from BIM. The virtual design and construction capabilities enable these professionals to gain better control over the construction process and introduce efficiency across their work profile.
