A Step-by-step Guide to Ensure Successful BIM implementation

Today’s stakeholders in the AEC industry want high-quality deliverables, smarter buildings, and more efficient processes—and they want this in considerably less time.

To provide better results in minimum duration, leaders in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry are moving to Building Information Management (BIM). BIM isn’t just a 3D visualization; it includes an entire process from creating 3D, 4D, and 5D models to a full-fledged BIM Construction.

Using robust CAD software, an enormous amount of documented data, and smooth coordination techniques, BIM facilitates the model-construction collaboration between building owners and architects, engineers, and construction contractors.

As revealed by a McGraw-Hill Construction study, over 71 percent of AEC leaders reported relying on BIM for their projects’ success. According to the PR Newswire forecast, the BIM market is expected to grow to $16.35 billion in the next five years (by 2025).

If you’re looking to move your business to BIM to save time, reduce errors, expand design possibilities, this 3-step guide will show you the direction. Read on.

Step One: Get Informed

When you’ve planned to move to BIM, your first step should be to learn more about it. Assign a team of two to three people to get more information about how implementing BIM will affect their organization and team’s productivity.

Step Two: Tell Your Employees About the Change

Senior executives of a company should take the lead and inform every employee about the shift to BIM because it’ll be profitable for business growth. Give your team a vision and make sure everyone is on the same page.

Step Three: Make a Team for a Pilot Project

Choosing the right people for a pilot project is a step that you can’t miss out on. These members will handle the training and other aspects of the project. They’ll be further training the existing employees on the usage of BIM. For the pilot project, you’ll have to look for candidates who have in 3D illustration and have worked with BIM in the past. They should also have an understanding of architectural designs, data and modeling techniques, construction management, and are open to learning new software.

However, it can be time-taking and costly to look for candidates with such specialized skillsets. Therefore, we recommend hiring a BPO partner with high-quality Building Information Management Services with expertise in BIM, CAD drafting, and visualizations.
