The future of our industry lies in how best we can integrate and communicate all our work with various stakeholders to manage a project efficiently. This has given rise to an area called construction informatics where a significant amount of research is being done. The area deals with a range of subjects from integration to interoperability and from knowledge mining to strategic management. This area came into existence from two fields. The first was the use of computers to design and carry out time and cost calculations. The other was for computers to categorize and store essential information. Currently, integration, interoperability, innovation along with strategic management of Information and Communication Technologies are the key areas of research of construction informatics (Isikdag 2009).
In my opinion, this way would not be a good way to determine the benefits of BIM when compared to the other two researches because, in this case, the response level was observed as 70%, and the others were case studies, which means they have been already implemented in the field on the site of construction. Two projects were selected where one of it followed BIM techniques and the other didn’t right from the beginning of construction. And from the literature review it is observed that the projects followed Integrated Project Delivery method where the planning starts from the pre construction phase of the project, and this project delivery method is the efficient way of project delivery method since all the teams will be coordinated much before the pre construction phase of the project. The case study presented in the first paper was based on owner's perspective and had less visibility to the contractor or designer. Apart from this, some of the data available was historical, thus an ideal state would be proper tracking of metrics by the team while
B.I.M stands for Building Information Modeling, intelligent model-based process that provides insight to help you plan, design, construct, and mange buildings and infrastructure. B.I.M changes how buildings, infrastructure, and utilities are planned, designed, built, and managed. Autodesk B.I.M solutions help turn information into insight and deliver business value at every step in the process. B.I.M incorporates major elements of estimating, cost and project management. As a result, the B.I.M computer model is a living representation of the actual structure at any given time. B.I.M is more than drawings- it is a date repository for building design, construction, and maintenance information combined in one convenient model to share. The benefits of B.I.M are that there are reduced changes during construction. Reduced conflicts during construction and improved construction. Improved collective understanding of design intent reduces claims, disputes, and conflicts. B.I.M provides the capability to design efficient “Green Buildings.” The future of B.I.M will only make B.I.M better, the Information of B.I.M will be utilized more, designers, constructors and building owners will leverage the information that is right in from of them to add value to the building they are producing. Room and furniture, fixture, and equipment validation between
Every construction party can have their own prototype of the design model. Integrated project delivery requires a sharing off all this data for a more efficient and cost effective prototype. BIM soft wares makes this designing and alteration extremely easy and efficient. Having BIM literacy is the basic requirement for all these processes. Once this requirement is fulfilled, cost scheduling and project delivery timelines can also be worked upon using
Using BIM Tools The goal of integrating BIM tools into your business process is to improve efficiency, constructability and predictability on your projects. This can be done with a combination of BIM tools that enable collaborating, coordinating and communicating during all phases of development, from design, through preconstruction, construction and operation. The entire project team, including designers, contractors, subcontractors, project management and building management can communicate openly.
We are requested to assist the building with creating a method of construction cost data for client throughout the pre contract. The task of data collection is a difficult procedure and can be include to wide variations. Based upon our experience as quantity surveyors we chose to develop a cost data collection method. Our define construction line items and quantities for relativity building types.
There are top 25 works can be done by BIM in Construction Industry and every BIM use has different frequency and benefit. The works done by using BIM in construction industry are as follows:
The aim of this Literature Review is to gain an understanding of what Building Information Modelling (BIM) is, what SMEs are, establish the importance of BIM, why BIM should be implemented and to explore the key issues associated with the adoption and implementation of BIM by SMEs in a live construction environment.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an evolving collaborative digital approach in which complex of processes, technologies and procedures are set to create a platform to better manage and coordinate essential aspects in building projects using virtual design and construction methodologies, promoting better stakeholder collaboration from feasibility and conceptual design through maintenance to demolition and recycling.
Construction professionals see productivity gains as a result of more precise design and trade co-ordination, automated conflict avoidance, easier design interpretation, greater accuracy and fewer change orders. BIM’s ability to detect and avoid conflicts prior to construction reduces unbudgeted construction changes by 40% and can save up to 10% of the entire value of a construction project when compared to a non-BIM project.
Tekla BIMsight is a software application for building information model-based construction project collaboration. It can import models from other BIM applications using the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) format, also DWG and DGN. With Tekla BIMsight, users can perform spatial co-ordination (clash or conflict checking) to avoid design and constructability issues, and communicate with others in their construction project by sharing models and notes. (Wilkes,2012)
The role of the architect is changing, as are the priorities of the profession – it is becoming more client focussed and more concerned with social and environmental issues relevant to the built environment. The demand for new technologies such as BIM (Building information Modelling) is increasing substantially as the demand for a more efficient and cost effective process is required. (GOV.UK, 2010)
After listened to the lectures give by lecturers and other guest lecturers, I realized that the BIM is not just a specific software platform. Firstly, In my opinion, BIM is not longer an generation of stochastic in building consultant, it is caused by the needs of construction industry revolution. After reviewing the background history of the construction industry for last decades in lectures, it is recognized a significant productivity decrease in the construction industry (lily lecture slides, intro, P7). It means there is an hurrying need to improve the automation, information management, supply-chain management, and collaboration tools of the AEC industry. Because, it has been proved by many scholars that there were many benefits and resource savings if the BIM
In the present scenario, BIM acts as an important key tool for growth in Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry globally. As per Mc Graw Hill construction Report (2012), the percentage of BIM adoption in the United States of America (USA) is been gradually expanded from 49% in 2009 to over 71% in 2012. And by United Kingdom Government in 2011, BIM is mandated in Government Projects to reduce delays of projects, carbon level, and cost overruns. And also in Singapore Government provides funds for adopting BIM and to increase its usage among AEC industry (Kushwaha and Adhikari, 2016)- P526. And Even the Global Construction sector output will be augmented from US$ 7.7 to US$ 25 Trillion by 2025. And also, the growth is expected to increase from 35% to over 55% by 2020. But, In contrast of it, Indian counterparts are not tapping the true potential of BIM tools and using them for visualizations and walkthroughs (Autodesk, 2005) (Kushwaha
BIM (Building Information Modelling) based on 3- dimensional information models contribute most noticeably in the visualization of construction information throughout a lifecycle. The chief effects would be interference management at the design phase using 3D information and schedule management at the construction phase using 4D. The visualization range has included cost, sustainability, operation and maintenance information to 4D
