Impact of BIM Services on Construction Projects

by Tejjy Inc CEO

Building Information Modeling is transforming the construction process across the world. Starting from the time of clash detection, improved scheduling, project planning to cost estimation, BIM services provide a number of benefits to construction industry professionals. This helps in ensuring enhanced return on investment and profitability for the building owners.

Now, how BIM 3D modeling services are catering digital transformation to the AEC industry? Today, multiple techniques such as 3D rendering, fabrication, and digital designs are streaming over the horizon.  In this regard, Building Information Modeling provides a single 3d digital model that all the project stakeholders, including architect, suppliers, builders, and managers use from conception to completion.

Let’s check out the construction project management statistics in accordance with Gartnet survey across countries:

·         About 60% project stakeholders decreased project cost and gained financial profits

·         BIM services resulted in 9.8% cost savings in large construction projects

·         Further, there is increased time saving, owing to proper planning of construction workflow

·         Fast-tracked workflow facilitated completion of a month’s work in just a few weeks

What are the Manifold applications of BIM in Project Management?

Using 3d modeling services, 4d scheduling and 5D BIM, BIM service providers in USA and across the globe eliminate rework, decreasing costs and material wastage. The entire process of Building Information Modeling engage material supply chain at the earlier stage, mitigating project management risks.

Let’s now take a look at how BIM applications optimize construction process, resulting in improved project profitability.

·         On-time Clash Detection, Removing Inconsistencies


Visualization of a construction activity is executed within time and cost with 3d BIM services. This helps in detecting clashes at the right time and migrate conflict actions. As  a result of which, all operations such as permanent or temporary construction become problem free, resulting in augmented productivity and increased ROI.


·         4D Construction Scheduling


4D BIM enables quick and powerful visualization for specific construction scheduling. Professionals involved in construction project management could plan and communicate their thoughts to accountable stakeholders for renovation and retrofitting.


·         Tight coordination with MEP systems


MEP systems are often complicated, involving various disciplines of mechanical, electrical and plumbing services in the same ecosystem. Choosing BIM services facilitate in the timely detection of internal and external clashes, saving time and money and avoiding rework.


·         Planning site utilization with BIM


The technique of BIM often makes it easy to envisage the use of locations for optimal site utilization. Assigning space for assembly of building components, material silos, location of construction equipment, cranes and other temporary facilities are visualized through BIM integrated virtual design and construction competences.


·         Cost estimation with 5D BIM


Building Information Modeling enables visualization of construction activities and cost estimation. 5D BIM services facilitate in virtually representing the construction process and extract accurate material takeoff accurately compared to the conventional take offs and cost estimation techniques leading to matured financial expense.


·         Cloud BIM 360 on field


The full efficacy of BIM 3D modeling services could be accomplished if all project stakeholders could access, edit and update BIM files. This is impossible with conventional BIM local systems since it does not let project stakeholders from all locations to access files. Nevertheless, with the use of BIM mobile and cloud BIM 360 all stakeholders could be in sync with the BIM model.


·         Prefabrication and formwork


The technique of prefabrication and formwork in the construction sector decreases the project schedule since the factory processes and on-site field activities are executed at the same time, improving quality and reducing the construction cost. Digital fabrication methodically manages all processes, including material processing, and construction of a structure by using Building Information Modeling digital tools.

Digital progress has revolutionized the whole industry, ushering a new technological era. Fortified with digital BIM services, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is summoning the construction industry to digitize every step. In a decade, complete digitization could enable the construction sector to evade decade-long stagnation and produce an estimated 12-20% yearly cost savings, equal to $1 - $1.7 trillion, as per the estimate of World Economic Forum. To explore multiple BIM dimensions and enhance scope of the entire project lifecycle, implement BIM. This will consequentially increase your opportunities to improve construction project management and raise output at a higher level.
