4 facts to know about BIM

Technology and robotics are set to change the face of the construction sector in the coming years, as this historically manual industry embraces new systems and moves towards increased automation. BIM, or Building Information Modelling, technology is one part of the transformation. Let’s take a look at five things you need to know about it.

Adoption of BIM will increase significantly in coming years

Is it estimated that the use of BIM will increase significantly over the next few years, with predictions suggesting that uptake will nearly double in two years alone.

You will get a positive ROI from BIM

There’s no doubt that whether you choose to purchase your own technology or outsource your BIM, the investment will be significant. Thankfully, there is also little doubt that you will be able to achieve a positive return on investment.

As information is held within a single place, rather than disparate systems, you will automatically save time. Amendments simply need to be made once and, as a by product, the chances of errors being made are reduced too.

Costing a job is easier with BIM technology

A further benefit of this single point data entry is that costing out a job becomes much more straightforward. Altering a material or measurement in the design automatically updates the appropriate documents elsewhere in the system.

Winning business is easier with BIM

Over the coming years, many public and private sector firms will demand that suppliers demonstrate that they use BIM as part of the tender process. In fact, the government understood at the turn of the decade how influential this technology would be, and it laid out its own policy on how the UK construction sector could become the world leader.

BIM offers construction companies many benefits

As already demonstrated in the previous facts, there are many benefits for construction companies when they adopt BIM technology. If you’re looking for a company to help you with BIM technology, make sure they have a forward-thinking approach, making them more likely to embrace the developments that will, no doubt, happen with this emerging technology over time.

So, if you’re in the construction sector, it’s clear that things are likely to change rapidly in the coming years and that there are some real benefits to be had from adopting and embracing these changes.
