BIM, Cloud Service and Mobility create revolution to the construction
Building information Modeling (BIM) itself an exciting and engaging subject to study. It has brought revolution to the construction industry. It brings the speed and sharpness that transforms the older face of Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC).
One NBS National BIM Survey once indicated a sizable portion of the engineers are now using BIM. The figure is as good as 31 per cent which is way ahead the figure of 13 per cent in 2010.
Most of the construction professionals are ready to use BIM of upcoming projects, seems it has turned into a standard, construction without BIM is impossible.
The firms have a major role to play here. Those ventures need to educate the future generation more and more on this – find the new definition of construction. The usage of BIM will bring a wholesome advantage in the market.
The major role of the BIM is to produce environmental friendly, economically viable project with a model-based procedure to complete the work. Why not, it will actually produce project’s life style designer, construction professionals and building owners.
The ‘information’ in BIM is utmost important. It is dependent on the project team as every member of the team needs timely information.
The Cloud makes think on accessibility and collaboration. First, rest assured the datas have to well distribute among project team by unlocking workstation. Data can be shared by all stakeholders securely with the appropriate access controls, in the cloud.
The cloud also has the capability to put a structure for project data collection. The collaborative practices consists architects, engineers, contractors and subcontractors and sharing lop-sided models. The model can be different, but approach must be same.
The benefit of the cloud is that, it solves the problem transporting the people seeking information and control the environmental situation to get access of the model.
Once the project information updates, the changes can be seen. The team member can alternate and manage design. They can send the hyperlink to navigable 3-D model of the troubled area. The scheduling would be more comfortable with this effort as the time is money.
Mobility is cloud which can be accessible. The challenge is to transport the data to the people who need it. It’s urgent to transmit data to the jobsite as the work happens there. Once, the construction data available onsite, it can be added.
Now days, construction professionals are working in a more complicated situation with vehement work pressure. Economic pressure is also there. The construction firms are researching how to complete work within deadline and accuracy. BIM, Cloud Computing and Mobility can be best tools for success.
