Do you want to be at the forefront of the construction industry? Technology plays a vital role in every industry today, and construction is no different. As construction projects become more complex, BIM drafting allows for a more efficient way to manage all the data and information associated with a project.
BIM links teams, workflows, and data across the entire project lifecycle—from design and engineering to construction and operations—to achieve improved outcomes for each project.
What Is BIM Drafting?
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that allows contractors and architects to work together to create a 3D model of a building on a central platform. This process has revolutionized the way industries complete construction projects for several reasons, such as:
- Better collaboration
- Reduced cost of mistakes
- Increased accuracy
- Realistic visualization
#1 Collaboration and Quality Control
With BIM, everything syncs on a cloud database, which means any changes to the model are visible across all connected devices. BIM software notifies users when modifications occur. As a result, engineers in other departments can easily track developments they were unaware of. By having a common model to work from, everyone is on the same page and can ensure that the project goes according to plan. BIM drafting allows for better collaboration between professionals such as:
In the past, it was difficult to track changes made to construction drawings. With BIM drafting, all changes are tracked and recorded automatically. Construction teams can now easily see changes, including who made the change and at what time or date, improving quality control on construction projects.
#2 Reduced Costs
BIM drafting provides a better understanding of a project before it even starts. By having a virtual model of the project, you can view it from different angles and perspectives. This feature can help catch potential problems early, reducing the need for rework later on.
For example, if an air duct crosses a plumbing line, the designer must alter one of the two systems. Before building begins, BIM detects conflicts and notifies the designers, allowing them to resolve the issue.
One of the most significant benefits of BIM drafting is that it is much more accurate than traditional methods. BIM models use computer software that provides more precise measurements and minimizes the risk of human error.
#4 Realistic Visualization
BIM allows for capturing every realistic detail of a project, which is not possible for 2D designs.
- Clients can get a good picture of the project via 3D visualization, augmented reality, and simulations.
- Before building begins, clients can understand how they will use the space. It is possible to detect necessary adjustments that are not visible on blueprints.
- Having a better vision of the project from the outset helps you avoid costly and time-consuming adjustments later.
With BIM, sustainability is an integral part of the design process. Design engineers can do a more thorough environmental analysis, considering factors such as:
- building orientation
- energy consumption
BIM can also assist in determining the most effective energy efficiency, waste management, and water conservation techniques. With cloud computing and collaborative processes, it’s also possible to cut paper usage throughout design and construction.
