The development of any of infrastructure needs a lot of planning and investment. A minute mistake may result in the loss of thousands of dollars. Therefore, a full-proof planning is mandatory before hitting a construction site. Earlier, architects and planners used to create a model of the building based on the customer requirement, and on the basis of that, whole engineering thing used to be done. But, the advancement in technology has changed the whole scenario and transformed the reality world into a virtual one.
The move from 2D drawings to 3D models is well in motion and gaining steam in architectural engineering and construction industry. The model-based approach increases efficiency within individual organizations and truly shines during coordinated project delivery. Although most of the people think that Building Information Modeling is just another Computer Assisted Design (CAD) program; but it actually goes well beyond that. BIM – building information modeling – is a coordinated set of processes, supported by technology, that adds value by creating, managing and sharing the properties of an asset throughout its cycle. Models incorporate graphic, physical, commercial, environmental and operational data.
Building information modeling services are really helpful to structural engineers, architects, and other construction professionals. They give a flawless perspective of the entire building cycle management – construction. BIM services offer the solutions to your construction requirements with the help of three-dimensional, dynamic building modeling tools that improvise the productivity in the various building designs. BIM is all about delivering better and efficient products to your customers in less time and generates 3D model encompassing geometric and geographic information of the building.
The building information modeling in Canada provides the potential for a virtual information model to be handed from Design Team (architects, surveyors, consulting engineers, and others) to Contractors and Subcontractors and then to the Owner, each adding their own additional discipline-specific knowledge and tracking of changes to the single model. BIM services are revolutionizing the construction industry by a virtual creation of the project before moving to the construction site.
As because 3D objects are machine readable, spatial conflicts in a building model can be checked automatically. Because of this capability, at both the design and drawing levels, errors and change orders can due to internal errors can be rectified. The BIM process provides better building products at lower costs to the owner. With the proper implementation of BIM, the construction would be able to deliver the error-free infrastructure which would last forever.
