Friday 28 february 2020, This morning Parveen Sharma was a guest at Aecom to give a lecture about BIM.
“Digital Transformation, get on board or get left behind”
Parveen Sharma told about the transition from Traditional 2D Delivery to 3D Digital Delivery.
We will give you a short recap of the presentation.
History of Drafting
BIM has a long history of drafting projects. The drawings started on stone, followed by sand, cloth, paper, computer/CAD and now BIM and virtual construction.
Benefits of BIM
Better outcomes through collaboration
- All project partners – uses a single, shared 3D model, cultivating collaborative working relationships.
- This ensures everyone is focused on achieving best value, from project inception to eventual decommissioning.
- Using BIM tools such as Autodesk’s Revit and BIM 360 Docs automates the time-consuming task of quantifying and applying costs
Improved Coordination and Clash Detection
- Through deployment of new generative modeling technologies, solutions can be cost-effectively optimized against agreed parameters.
Preconstruction Project Visualization
- Projects can be visualized at an early stage – giving owners and operators a clear idea of design intent and allowing them to modify the design to achieve the outcomes they want.
Faster project delivery – Time savings
- Agreeing the design concept early in project development to eliminate late stage design changes
- Resolving complex construction details before the project goes on site
- Taking advantage of intelligence and automation within the model to check design integrity and estimate quantities.
Reduced safety risk
- Crowd behavior and fire modeling capability enable designs to be optimized for public safety.
- Asset managers can use the 3D model to enhance operational safety.
- Contractors can minimize construction risks by reviewing complex details or procedures before going on site.
Fits first time
- Integrating multidisciplinary design inputs using a single 3D model allows interface issues to be identified and resolved in advance of construction eliminating the cost and time impacts of redesign.
- The model also enables new and existing assets to be integrated seamlessly.
- Exact quantity take-offs mean that materials are not over-ordered.
- Use of BIM for automated fabrication of equipment and components enables more efficient materials handling and waste recovery.
