Why your company should consider moving away from 2D drawing work? Autodesk Revit and Navisworks offers organized 3D approach to streamline your design and construction process, saving you time and money down the road.If you are still thinking about the cost of the software as a barrier to BIM, it’s obvious that you haven’t understood […]
The race is on. By 2016, all centrally procured government construction UK projects, no matter their size, must be delivered using Building Information Modelling, or BIM. This will extend right through the supply chain, from the largest contractor to the smallest supplier, and it is hoped, will lead to the industry-wide adoption of BIM as […]
Mo money, mo problems.
Budgets exceeds projections. The eastern span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge notoriously cost $5 billion more than projected and a new transit hub near the World Trade Center in New York is similarly billions over budget. Those are just two high-profile scenarios.
Sources of cost overruns vary from project to project. In the case of recently completed […]
BIM-based design improves considerably the safety of a building over its life cycle – from the construction phase to the maintenance of the occupied building. When standards and regulations are defined by programs, inspection and design may in the future be automatic at all phases of work, says Research Scientist Kristiina Sulankivi at VTT Technical Research Centre.
BIM has generally […]
PrioVR – A device capable of capturing human motion, enabling Virtual Reality environment and capturing physical movements. One can see future in AEC market. Simply attach sensors to your body and send human movements to PrioVR.
Lauri Koskela, University of Huddersfield, explains how BIM feeds into the principles of Lean Construction creating a common ground of improvement
BIM & Lean Construction
Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Lean Construction have now existed as independent initiatives for two decades or more. Both have had an origin deriving from academic studies, with the focus gradually shifting […]
Measure twice, cut once. This old adage is one that craftsmen understand well and never question. Careful measurement and planning is essential in producing any quality product, and when it…
