BIM during the construction phase
BIM is a huge time saver during the construction phase, especially in projects with sophisticated designs, as it facilitates the resolution of challenging tasks and complex geometrical problems due to it's capacity to offer real-time information in three dimensions, that the model provides. It allows quick bidirectional data exchange between different software applications for scheduling, clash detection, trade coordination, etc.
All the necessary documentation, that is generated using the BIM model, is distributed to the different construction teams in a coordinated and efficient way.
It's essential for the viability and success of any construction project to control that the real construction cost adjust to the planned budget. BIM technology allows this control from the beginning to the end, facilitating automatic quantity reports and valuation in any phase of execution works. It also allows a more precise valuation of costs for construction processes, which can be studied and programmed in a real-time 3D environment.
BIM technology is establishing itself in the construction sector because it allow to control costs and schedules, minimizing errors and enhancing production quality and efficiency.
