The use of BIM in construction sectors – Some vital statistics
A survey was conducted by Dodge Data & Analytics on large construction project stakeholders having $50 million or more in annual value. It revealed that 50% of trade contractors, construction managers and general contractors utilize BIM on over half of all projects.
How BIM technology brings huge benefits to the smart hotels
In recent times, the contractors from all through the world specially from USA are collaborating with tech companies for developing superior, smarter hotels in quickest possible time and cost effectively.
How Virtual Reality and Augment Reality technology transform the facility management system to the next level
It is the common problem for facility managers to preserve hidden and toughly accessible system components like pipes, ducts, conduits, structural supports, inside walls, ceilings, floors and underground structures.
What is a clash? When components of various models capture the equal area, a clash takes place. A clash may be geometric (as for instance pipes move through walls), developed on the basis of schedule (if various elements of work which are expected
AutoCAD is a computer-aided drafting software application used in architecture, construction, manufacturing and other engineering plans. First release of the software was on December 1982. Now the version updated to 20.1 AutoCAD 2016 on March 23 2015.
How BIM helps you to detect clashes and mitigate them
The BIM professionals can apply BIM Clash Detection & Risk Mitigation method to perfectly detect clashes amid various disciplines like MEP, architectural, structural, etc. This will help in finding the issues which may occur for modifications at the final stage as well as alleviating the issues prior to commencement of the actual project in the jobsite.
How BIM was utilized in the Panama Canal development project
The Panama Canal is considered as the most vital water ways in the globe. It facilitates running of 5% of global trade. The Panama Canal development project is undertaken to increase that volume significantly within 2016.
Importance of 3D Constructible Models for creating & setting up MEP design
Recently several new working systems like BIM 3D modeling, 4D BIM for construction scheduling, implementation of constructible models for cost estimation, sustainably, lean construction as well as 7D BIM for facility management, have emerged out for AEC industries which boost up the digital progressions.
Some newest trends to strengthen the 3D modeling & BIM process
BIM and Cloud technology become the part and parcel of 3D model based design. So, with the arrival of any new movement in the Cloud architecture as well as in building information modeling (BIM), 3d model based design is greatly influenced.
New Technology in the Construction Industry: The 10 Best Innovations of 2014
The first week of 2015 is already underway, and that means it is time for a bit of reflection on the past year. Like so many years before, 2014 brought some great advances in technology for the architecture, engineering, and construction industry.
AutoCAD 2015 contains some advanced features which can streamline your cad modeling process significantly. These advanced cad features range from an improved user interface and some powerful functionalities.
BIM is mostly recognized in architecture and construction field but its usages are limited to civil engineering field. The civil engineers (who deal with roads & highways designs) are still very much unaware to reap the benefits of BIM completely.
Some industry recognized BIM terms to execute a BIM project
With the advancement of Building Information (BIM), several new technical terms and keywords are included in it. But these BIM terminologies may not be always understandable by the professionals associated with construction industry.
How BIM is considered as useful collaboration tool for real estate developers
Aconex, the leading solution provider in cloud collaboration platform for the worldwide construction industry, has tied a knot with the Real Estate Developers' Association of Singapore (REDAS) to implement Aconex Connected BIM and other collaboration technologies for forming a collaborative project surroundings for its member developers.
How Virtual Modeling Process can make the facilities management system superior
Building information modeling (BIM) is considered as the part and parcel for efficient construction design. But we always neglect the fact that how we can utilize the BIM data in future to enhance the complete lifecycle of the building rather than construction.
How to find out the required time while completing a drawing in Autocad
Sometimes, it becomes necessary to know the time for completing a drawing in autocad (required by client for billing purpose) or evaluate your skill for completing the drawing with autocad in quickest possible time.
With the advent of Business information modeling (BIM) technology, the construction industry becomes high-tech. All the project stakeholders utilize BIM in the construction process that range from design and construction firms to building operators.
