Building Information Modelling – Is this Necessary?
One of the major requirements for a successful building construction is to be able to create a model production drawing wherein the entire cycle of the building you plan can be done using a software and 3D. Building Information Model or BIM is created for you to represent the spatial relationships, light analysis, building geometry and also the properties of the building components by means of using objects that can be generic or particular, oriented with void spaces or shapes or even undefined. These objects will then become automatically consistent based on their location, specification and size.
In developing a building, the use of BIM is in fact a great representation to the project. With the help of this process, this will prevent any uncertainties on the project. If you plan on changing some things, updating of the model will follow. Since technology has continuously grown, the BMI will also be upgraded on their modeling and designs with help of art tools and instruments.
Your view towards BIM should not just be limited to designs because is more than that and this is even critical for the construction process and the management of facility. The aim of BIM is to have a more efficient process that will remove any uncertainties towards the quality of the building even before the start of their construction. This will serve as a great push to the team by simply being in their full potential despite the situation they are facing just like tight budget, manpower shortage and also the scheduling. A safer workplace is introduced since the assembly of the materials are done in another location and afterwards, the assembled materials will then be transported to the site thus, elimination of the possibility of accidents or trades.
By having a Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, construction has never been this friendly. There will always be the same procedure to undergo and that is to begin always with the management of the BIM. This also includes the construction management wherein the budget is really a critical factor to any construction, as well as manpower and the scheduling. You will also have to deal with understanding the facility information. In here, if issues arise at the 3rd stage of your construction, you don’t have to physically check the area since you can already go back to the model you have and check the problem. You can even incorporate in your BIM the support on analysis when it comes to building maintenance and operation.
