BIM and its enabling technologies streamline the feasibility, planning, design, construction and operation stages of the project lifecycle. BIM approaches these processes as a whole, supporting a more collaborative way of working and more coordinated information sharing, making each process in the life of a built asset more efficient.
Stakeholders Benefits of Adopting BIM Processes:
Asset Owners / Managers
Productivity gain through integrated processes and the accurate, timely and intelligent transfer of information between key project stakeholders
Improved likelihood of project delivery on time and to budget
Lower capital cost of the asset from improved productivity and streamlined project delivery
Important, reliable information for asset assessment, decision making, operational efficiencies, proactive maintenance scheduling and disaster recovery/business continuity
Lower operational cost of the asset
Improved communication and engagement
Better design coordination, better quality design
Easy visualisation of design and reduced potential for misinterpretation
More efficient information management, both graphical and non-graphical
Leveraging of models for design optimisation and advanced engineering analysis
Faster and more accurate quantity take-off and costing
Better collaboration and communication
Model-based cost estimation
Pre-construction project visualisation
Improved coordination and clash detection
Reduced cost and mitigated risk
Shorter construction programmes
Increased productivity and prefabrication
Safer construction sites
Stronger facility management and building handover
