Building Information Modelling, well-known as BIM is nothing but the process of designing a building as a team using a system of computer models and not like the traditional methods where designing is done using separate drawings. BIM uses data sets to produce 3-D computer models. It creates objects virtually and stimulates how they would physically appear in reality. BIM simplifies the whole process by letting team members collaborate seamlessly and integrates information each team member provides in one model.
The following are the ways through which BIM reduces construction costs.
BIM can save a lot on construction costs. We would say, it will cut construction costs by between 5 and 30 percent. With BIM, you can effectively describe your building plans and avoid misordering building materials. By completing the project on time, you can also save a lot of time thereby making room for new projects.
Many experts switch to BIM as it reduces rework to a great extent. With BIM, your plans will be accurate with greater precision, unlike traditional methods that involve a lot of rework. BIM virtualizes the design so it is easy to identify issues in the building process, in advance. This will cut down on alterations and reworks that could be expensive.
BIM is well-known for enhancing work productivity which results in an increased ROI. This is one reason why many upgrade to BIM as it is viewed as an efficient tool.
With BIM it is easy for team members to collaborate and make changes. Anytime someone makes a change, it will be updated in the system and in the same model. This results in fewer errors as the specifications and costs will be updated as and when someone makes a change to the plan.
