A San Francisco-based construction and engineering project management company have discussed the impact that Building Information Modelling has had on their industry.
Betchel Corporation have released a short video on their official YouTube channel, explaining the plethora of ways that BIM can revolutionise a project at any stage necessary.
The video explains how the recent changes in technology have provided the biggest and most monumental shift within how projects are delivered than ever before, with BIM spearheading this movement.
“Building Information Modelling, which goes by the acronym BIM, is a cross-functional work process for creating, collecting and managing information to deliver projects, and more importantly, to make our clients successful in the way they operate their facilities we hand over to them”, said Pete Carrato, BIM Manager at Bechtel.
“It is the ultimate collaboration tool. The kind of information that come together in a BIM model, we define by different dimensions.” After elaborating on the various dimensions of BIM ranging from 3D and beyond, Carrato elaborates: “The impact on the industry as a whole is going to be huge. It’s going to change everything.”
Carrato definitely hit the nail on the head with his definition.
