What lies in future for Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Posted on : Oct 08, 2019

As a leading outsourcing partners for number of developers, builders, architects and contractors for our outsource architectural services and outsource CAD services across the globe, we see ourselves as one of the part of an industry which is very slow in adapting to a new technology. Building Information Modeling or BIM is one such technology which is still getting adapted by the industry players like builders, developers, contractors and architects at a slow but a steady pace. While working with many of the leading industry players under our outsource architectural services and outsource CAD services we are able to understand from the early adapters of this technology that BIM as a concept shall be playing one of the most critical roles in building documentation in future.

Some of the key futuristic highlights that BIM holds for the future of construction industry as stated by these technology advocates primarily include improved visualization and overall productivity as the information from BIM models could be extracted easily over traditional way of working. BIM as a technology also reduces the redundant, time consuming process of internal and external coordination by incorporating the key information points like supplier location, time lag, delivery requirements, re-order levels & quantities and many more which eventually leads to seamless quick deliveries.

One of the most salient feature highlighted by our esteemed clients of our outsource architectural services and outsource CAD services is reduction in overall cost. Most of the information related to building performance analysis is been already incorporated in BIM system because of which one could automatically create the input file for building performance simulation by using the in built The building properties in BIM.

With the increase in focus towards energy saving and green building concepts trending the industry, one of the emerging representation of Green Building XML or gbXML under Building Information Modeling (BIM) focus on green energy efficient building design, which in turn is used as an input in various energy simulation engines.
