By implementing BIM into the workflow, contractors can earn higher profitability, productivity and customer satisfaction and reduce RFIs, material waste, and construction rework. The survey conducted by McGraw Hill on the business value of BIM for construction in major global markets reported 75% of surveyed contractors showing positive ROI.
Traditionally contractors and sub-contractors were depended on 2D drawings for various tasks including bidding, tendering, estimating and design coordinating. Because of the limitation of 2D drawings, the tasks were not only time consuming and error-prone but also invites challenges like meeting deadlines, poor coordination, and inefficient document management. BIM overcomes these challenges and facilitates managing complex project workflow, logistics, schedule, and design coordination.
BIM serves as a common digital platform for modeling, planning, integrated design, and collaboration. It streamlines construction, repair, maintenance and upgrades of facilities throughout the life cycle of the asset. The government's mandate to use BIM further enhances the efficiencies of construction management.
