Building Information Modeling Services: 4 Features Of BIM Process

Illustration for article titled Building Information Modeling Services: 4 Features Of BIM Process

Modern CAD software ushered the building industry into a new era of fast and accurate design and drafting process; now Building Information Modeling Services promise even more opportunities to the designers to experiment and innovate. Building Information services use a comprehensive process that envelops the entire lifespan of a building and empower the building owners to take right decisions during the operation stage. BIM enables the designers to be more accurate and more efficient with the design process; it also ensures that clients don’t just get quality services but also that they share every single information about their building from the conceptualization stage till the end of its life. Let us take a look at some of the features of this new-age process.

· Shared information resource:

By definition, BIM is a physical representation of the physical and functional characteristics of the building process. It’s much more efficient and useful than all the existing systems since it offers a more comprehensive overview of the whole building process to everyone involved including designers and the clients as it’s a shared information resource about the building or structure. It forms a reliable basis for decision making based on the right information during a structure’s entire lifecycle.

· Extended scope:

While CAD software enable the designers to get an accurate idea about the three dimensions- length, breadth and depth; BIM extends the scope further to five dimensions, time and cost being the additional dimensions. This helps you get accurate cost and material estimates and precise time schedules of the project.

· More comprehensive overview:

Building Information Modeling services just don’t present the geometric view of the structure, they provide a holistic view of the entire building process. Each individual component of this process is covered by BIM, be it the geometrical aspect of the design or spatial relationship or light analysis, provision of various services or topographical information, quantities or properties of building components, or time schedules.

· Realistic views:

BIM design tools enable the designers to obtain various views from a building model. They are thus able to produce high-quality, accurate drawings. These drawings give a more realistic and accurate idea of the final structure in comparison to the other existing processes since these views are extracted based on a single definition of each object instance and are never inconsistent.

Building Information Modeling services use a process that is quite complex in nature. Many architects still hesitate to adopt the process, however, it makes the entire building process very simple and consistent. BIM is client friendly and is the future of the building industry.
