Various applications of BIM Technology in the AEC industry

Posted on : Jan 05, 2021

In the field of the AEC industry, BIM technology is considered as the latest development that is used for design, planning, operation, and construction activities. Thus such technology helps to visualise architects, engineers, and constructors to visualise in the simulated environment so as to detect any operational, construction, or design-related clashes. BIM technology creates a 3D digitalis building in the virtual environment for reducing project cost, minimises project delivery time, and enhances quality and productivity levels. Below mentioned are some of the benefits of BIM technology:-

A)  Enhances estimation and cost analysis-This technology helps to visualise construction activity which directly impacts overall financial outlay. In an AEC industry, many factors like construction projects getting more complex, ever-increasing customer demands, controlling expenditure factors or any material wastage, etc are quite critical for the development of any company. Therefore estimating the cost factor is very essential for effective construction works. Thus BIM technology helps in more accurate cost estimation as compared to their traditional methods.

B)  Creates effective site utilisation-The latest BIM technology helps in the visualisation of different site locations so as to create effective site utilisation. Through this virtual design technology, different essentials like material silos, placement of cranes and other construction-related facilities, special space allocation for assembly, or any other temporary facilities can be made out for effective site utilisation and to gain maximum profits.

BIM is considered a boon for the AEC industry because it creates more automated, comprehensive, and flourishing ways of working for Industrial Growth. BIM is a smart 3D insightful tool that helps professionals in different stages like plan, design, and manages infrastructure in the AEC industry. At C-Design, we require inputs from the client’s side in form of CAD drawings, rough ideas, images in any format, 2D files, PDF images, hand-drawn sketches so that output PDF files, 2D or 3D Revit files can be offered at competitive rates. BIM software proves to be valuable not only to designing engineers but also for consultants, construction builders, cost management, and project management fields.
