Building Information Modelling – Is this Necessary?
One of the major requirements for a successful building construction is to be able to create a model production drawing wherein the entire cycle of the building you plan can be done using a software and 3D. Creating a Building Information Model is a representation of building the light analysis, geometry, geographical details, spatial relationships, not to mention the other building components, by using objects that can be oriented with solid shapes, void spaces, undefined, generic or particular. These objects will then become automatically consistent based on their location, specification and size.
In developing a building, the use of BIM is in fact a great representation to the project. With the help of this process, this will prevent any uncertainties on the project. If you plan on changing some things, updating of the model will follow. Since technology has continuously grown, the BMI will also be upgraded on their modeling and designs with help of art tools and instruments.
Your view towards BIM should not just be limited to designs because is more than that and this is even critical for the construction process and the management of facility. Its primary goal is to ensure that the process becomes more efficient and to do so, it eliminates the uncertainties you have for the building even if the construction hasn’t started yet. This also helps in encouraging each of the team to strive more and maximize their potential especially if there are challenges when it comes to the budgeting, manpower and also the scheduling. This will also introduce a safer workplace wherein the materials to be used are already pre-assembled from a certain location and then transported to the site of the construction, thus, avoiding the possibility of accidents and even the trades.
The discovery of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software has greatly impacted and helped the world of construction and infrastructures. There will always be the same procedure to undergo and that is to begin always with the management of the BIM. You will also encounter the construction management wherein you will have to deal with the budget even how tight it is and also the manpower situation and your scheduling. You will also have to deal with understanding the facility information. In here, if issues arise at the 3rd stage of your construction, you don’t have to physically check the area since you can already go back to the model you have and check the problem. The use of BIM software will also let you incorporate the support to your analysis on why some issues arise and also the analysis for building maintenance and operation.
