BIM for Architects

Apr 2, 2015 -- BIM is one of the big architectural buzz terms today and so defining it precisely is worth before explaining its uses and impact. First of all don’t think that BIM is a hand drawing or computer drafting. Instead it is an evolution from drawing on paper to drafting on the computer. BIM is a 3-dimensional digital representation of a building in which the output useful to the realization of a design such as sections, plans, perspectives, elevations, spreadsheets etc. are created. BIM is used frequently in architecture to design projects at very early stages, visualize real world,  BIM cost estimating, and analyze performance and appearance and to document everything accurately.

Building Information Modeling enables architects and designers to create design and understand and communicate performance, appearance and cost early in the building design process. It acts as a tool for the architects to capture and analyze design concepts easily and maintain coordinated and reliable design data through documentation and construction with more accuracy. As BIM enables the architects to know how the building will look like even before it is built, he can coordinate the team members in the project to show what is beneficial and what may not work in the process. It helps minimize any possible waste and reduce errors. In this way, the building owner can use the money more economically.

BIM determines the various components of a building and  quantities of materialsand resources required. It gives precise information about the construction of the building. We can see both interior and exterior of the building using BIM. All such advantages make BIM very beneficial for construction and architecture business.

It is with the design, the sustainability of a building starts. BIM helps create sustainable designs by analyzing and helping process the many functions required for sustainable design. BIM simplifies the process as sustainable buildings are needed.

Let us brief the advantages of  BIM services for architects

  • It provides more efficient and enhanced design collaboration
  • It early identifies issues that might arise
  • It reduces conflicts and changes during construction
  • It reduces reworks and errors
  • It creates an overall better project management
  • It improves cost estimating and building maintenance
  • It repeats business and referral

Before BIM, most of the architects had used computer aided drafting that used vector files. Architects can out passes what was available previously with the technology available in BIM, as it involves more data sharing between the various components.
