Building Information Modeling Service - BIM

BIM (Building Information Modeling) or BIM (Building Information Management) is an abbreviation for these terms. Architectural engineers, real estate developers, contractors, manufacturers, and other construction experts may all work together to create a 3D model of a structure or building, which can then be used to plan, design, and construct the structure or building. 

What Exactly Is BIM?
BIM (Building Information Modeling) or BIM (Building Information Management) is an abbreviation for these terms. Architectural engineers, real estate developers, contractors, manufacturers, and other construction experts may all work together to create a 3D model of a structure or building, which can then be used to plan, design, and construct the structure or building.

The usage of a level 3 BIM model for digital clash detection—one of the most common applications of BIM—is demonstrated. The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) has set a goal of achieving BIM Stage 2 by the year 2020 for the adoption of BIM (CIDB Malaysia). According to the Construction Industry Transformation Plan (CITP 2016-2020), it is believed that increasing the emphasis on technology adoption across the project life-cycle would result in increased productivity.

It may also extend to the operation and administration of structures by utilizing data that is available to building or structure owners and managers (hence the Building Information Management). It is this knowledge that enables governments, municipalities, and property managers to make educated judgments on the basis of the information generated from the model, even after the structure has been completed.

Data Sharing for Building Information Modeling (BIM)

What Methods Are Used to Disseminate BIM Information?
It is possible to exchange information in a BIM model through a mutually accessible online area known as a common data environment (CDE), and the data gathered is referred to as a ‘information model,’ which refers to the collection of information. It is possible to utilise information models at every step of a building’s life cycle, from conception through operation—and even during repairs and renewals.

Now that we’ve discussed what BIM is and how it can be utilized, let’s take a look at the different BIM levels.

What are BIM Levels and how do they work?
When working on different sorts of projects, different levels of BIM can be accomplished. At each stage, a new set of criteria is used to indicate a specific level of “maturity.” From 0 through 4D, 5D, and even 6D BIM, there are a variety of BIM levels to choose from. The aim of these levels is to determine how successfully, or how much information is being exchanged and handled during the entire process, depending on the level selected.

So, what exactly does each level include, and how can you tell which level you’re currently working on is explained below. The following sections include brief explanations of the first three stages, as well as an explanation of the criteria that are considered at each stage.

What are the advantages of BIM Building Information Modeling?

In the face of global developments that are making MEP projects increasingly complicated, BIM is assisting industry experts in working more quickly and productively.

All of the components of a mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design may be calculated more precisely, and cost simulations can be more realistic.
Rapid modeling allows for the optimization of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems during the design process, before they would be installed in the building.
With quicker and richer visualizations, the BIM model may be leveraged to obtain faster buy-in from stakeholders.
To communicate design information to field workers, a BIM model may be used.
Allows for the preservation of model intelligence from conception through construction and throughout the whole building’s lifetime.
Improves the accuracy of material estimations throughout the building process.
During operations, monitoring and evaluation and MEP asset monitoring are made possible.
Reduces total project risks by using proven, accurate, and optimized mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) system designs.
Reduces the likelihood of installation errors and material waste, resulting in shorter construction timeframes and cost savings throughout the building process.
Better quality and more energy-efficient buildings are produced, with a lower environmental impact.

Many workers are injured and others killed while working in the construction sites, despite the concerned authority’s health and safety measures. Many contractors and project managers utilize Building Information Modeling (BIM) to improve their profit margins and construction efficiency; however, very few consider their employees’ safety and health standards. Even though the construction industry is one of the rapidly growing sectors, it is also classified as the most hazardous and dangerous to workers working in the industry. In this article, we explore how safety and health standards can be incorporated with BIM technology.

BIM - Building Condition Assessment

When carrying out a building condition assessment, the first step is visiting the construction site. An inspection of the surrounding building is done to identify the building’s possible defects, hazards, and failures. The engineers carry out activities such as video recording, photo-taking, measurements, and interviewing the persons in charge of the building to collect data. After collecting useful information on the building, the assessment team will evaluate the information and produce a detailed report containing what they observed, defects and hazards noticed recommendations and proposals. The assessment reports are useful to the house owner when carrying out future maintenances, building extensions, or any other retrofitting work. The assessment team can present the assessment report according to the user’s specifications.

In a construction project, an estimate entails calculating the amounts and likely cost of the different construction materials required to complete the project. Before executing a construction project, you should know the volume of work needed and a budget for all the required materials. This will help in understanding the probable cost required to complete the construction work. Estimating is done by multiplying the quantities of various items by their unit respective unit cost. When preparing a construction estimate, one requires the following;
