Companies Join Forces for BIM Adoption

BIM (building information modeling can be a valuable resource in the construction industry, allowing teams to see a digital representation of what a building may look like, and share information which can enable better-informed decisions. Recently, three organizations completed a collaboration which will ultimately allow them to improve on that element of information sharing.

Obayashi, www.obayashi.co.jp/english, Toyko, Japan, alongside NEC, www.nec.com, Toyko, Japan, and GRAPHISOFT, www.graphisoft.com, Budapest, Hungary, recently completed their Smart BIM Cloud pilot project. The project, which commences operation this month, aims to allow safer and smoother information sharing among stakeholders.

Companies Join Forces for BIM Adoption

With this project, the companies are combining NEC’s experience delivering large-scale cloud implementations, GRAPHISOFT’s history developing BIM software, and Obayashi’s knowledge of implementing BIM services with design and construction projects, to aid in their increased use of BIM.

The Smart BIM Cloud Pilot aims to provide a comprehensive IT infrastructure built around advanced BIM server technology, which can then give construction teams access to large amounts of information. This can be particularly beneficial in the early stages of a project, as contractors, designers, and construction companies can stay in sync. As a result, two key goals can be achieved:

Obayashi reportedly aims to use BIM for every design-construction project by 2015. In demonstration of its commitment to this technology, the company has formed a new division: PD Center (Product, Design, Delivery, Digital). This division is focused on reforming business processes to accelerate the company’s BIM adoption.
