DIGITAL PRACTICE: HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR APPROACH

Over at the Gehry Technology site they detail why BIM is the future of Architect and Engineering. Most of you will know what BIM stands for, Building Information Modelling system but many may not why it is so beneficial to companies to use it. Gehry Technologies states;

The process of designing and constructing a building is complex. Innovations guiding productivity, advanced cost analysis and quality improvements in other >industries û such as rapid and iterative design, concurrent engineering, cycle time management, and supply chain optimization û are now being utilized by the >architecture, engineering, and construction industries. Building information modeling, 3D construction logistics program values offer many tangible and >intangible benefits:

  • Better overall project comprehension for project analysis, estimates and proposals.
  • Reduction in quantity take-off preparation time, error, and unanticipated change cost.
  • Reduction in project schedule delay risk with better communication, and identification of optimal construction sequences and object spatial clashes in advance of construction.
  • Reduction of injury and cost through highlighting and resolving safety issues in advance.

Gehry Technologies goes into detail on each of these points on their site which can be read here.
