HCSE Provide Benefits of Bim
  • HCSE Inc. Provide 10 Types of benefits Bim

  • Most importantly, BIM is not a technology. It is
    a process. This is possibly the most important
    aspect to understand. BIM applies to all ?aspects
    of the construction of a building, from the
    design, the estimating, the supply chain, the
    delivery of goods during the build, the build
    process, the resource allocation, the
    productivity requirements to meet targets and on
    in to the post-handover phase through Facilities
    and Asset Management.?

  • Aspects of BIM are enabled through various
    technology platforms. There are several providers
    of technology which supports architectural tools
    plus the addition of intelligent information
    against the model. Examples include Autodesk
    Revit?, Graphisoft ArchiCAD 17, 12d Model and
    Synchro Professional.

  • BIM has several implementation levelsLevel 0
    CAD using drawings, lines, arcs, text, etc.?
  • Level 1 2D 3D using models, objects plus file
    based collaboration
  • Level 2 BIMs plus file based collaboration and
    library management for models and objects and
  • Level 3 iBIM, Lifestyle Management, common
    dictionaries, data and processes underpinned by
    integrated and interoperable data through web

  • Level 2 BIM is often seen as the minimum standard
    to achieve. These levels are also split in to A
    and B, e.g. 2A and 2B which denotes the
    directionality of information sharing, i.e.
    one-way or multi-way. Here are two diagrams
    explaining the differences

  • Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and COBie are
    standards used to share information. ?IFCs
    describe building and construction industry data.
    It is a platform neutral, open file format
    developed by building SMART to facilitate
    interoperability in the architecture, engineering
    and construction (AEC) industry. COBie is a data
    format for the publication of a subset of
    building model information focused on delivering
    building information and not geometric modelling.
    It is closely associated with BIM and is
    typically exchanged using XML. These formats
    enable BIM interoperability and all BIM software
    is able to consume this information. Most are
    able to write it, enabling the sharing of
    information, even at Level 2 BIM to be easily
    achieved. External software such as Safe Software
    Feature Manipulation Engine (FME) is able to
    transform from IFC and COBie to other formats.
    This represents the beginnings of full
    integration possibilities between BIM and GIS.??

  • BIM is so much more than just a detailed 3D model
    of a building. The concept is most easily
    explained by the term build 4 times which means
    build three times in the model and once on the
    ground. The accuracy of the model combined with
    animations and fly-throughs allow contractors to
    access the design layout before the build takes
    place and make alterations. This means that when
    the build takes place, there are fewer errors and
    far less rework needed. This moves the
    construction procurement process from design and
    build to design build by bringing the
    construction team in to the design process rather
    than them simply having to respond to a tender
    for construction after the design has been

  • Parametric Modelling is a key principle of BIM.
    Essentially this means that everything in the
    model is connected to everything else. If you
    move the location of a wall, the elements
    attached to the wall also move. If you change the
    volume of a floor, the quantities of material
    needed to lay the floor alter. If you move
    ducting in the ceiling, all aspects associated
    with the ducting update and conflicts are
    highlighted. This is also true for BIMs that have
    been developed independently and brought together
    in a collaborative BIM environment. This allows
    organisations who may be controlling different
    elements of the build to benefit from one another
    as aspects of the model are altered through the
    process. Change once, benefit many times.

The 'D' elements of BIM relate to the information
associated with the model.
  • 4D relates to scheduling information when will
    an element be built. With this information you
    can enable just-in-time (JIT) delivery of
    materials to site. This in turn has an impact on
    transportation, making it more efficient, and
    reduces storage issues as materials are delivered
    and immediately installed.
  • 5D relates to the estimating and cost aspects of
    the building. Each element within the building
    model has a cost associated with it. This allows
    for detailed analysis to be done regarding
    budgets. It also allows the delivery team to make
    accurate predictions regarding how much needs to
    be done at any given time in order to meet the
    construction targets.

  • 6D covers the sustainability targets for a
    building allowing information such as energy use,
    sustainability from a materials and management
    point of view to be understood and Leadership in
    Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) tracking
    to be performed.
  • 7D is the "as-built" BIM model which is important
    as part of the handover process to the building
    owner. This model is a fundamental part of the
    ROI for BIM as it provide accurate Facilities
    Management (FM) and Asset Management (AM). Each
    part within the building will have a lifespan and
    in the event of replacement, the easy
    identification of parts ensures that these
    processes may be performed efficiently.

  •  BIM enables new procurement processes to take
    place which deliver certainty to all parties
    involved. A typical process might look like this
  • The design and construction teams are selected
  • The design work is done and is reviewed by the
    construction team and other subject matter
    experts. This review identifies areas of rework.
  • This process iterates 2 more times, the result is
    the best possible design.
  • Generic objects may have been used for materials
    and/or equipment these may now be replaced by
    specific models conforming to the IFC classes
    with known materials, costs and supply chain
    information associated with them. In this way,
    the full cost of the building, the suppliers and
    supply chain costs of materials and the
    installation methodology is known by everyone
  • The work can now start on site using the BIM to
    direct the build. Technology assists in the build
    by presenting the BIM information in the field as
    construction takes place. JIT delivery of
    materials keeps building efficient.

  • Governments around the world are now realising
    the benefits of BIM, especially for large
    construction funded with public money, and are
    beginning to mandate the use of BIM for these
    projects. When has that ever happened for GIS?
    The effect of this is to seed the industry to
    change. The reality is that the industry is
    moving this way anyway as they have already
    recognised the advantage of using BIM. The issue
    has been the slow adoption of the client to
    realise the benefits of the BIM approach to the
    point that some are still rejecting the final
    as-built BIM model, considering it an unnecessary
    cost rather than realising that it will reduce
    the AM/FM costs of running the building. Given
    that government is often the client, it would
    appear that this is actually an internal issue
    between government agencies or even roles with
    the same government agency that needs to be
    resolved as quickly as possible.

The result of BIM is impressive ROI figures
