It’s coming - ready or not
The world over, AEC stakeholders are hearing more and more about BIM. However, it’s an incontrovertible fact that – particularly among SMEs and subcontractors – there’s still some cynicism as to how implementing BIM is going to make sense in terms of both financial and time outlay.
One of the biggest issues is that companies have a tendency to view the expense of software and training as a barrier to BIM. Among a lot of firms, this cost is viewed as less of an investment and more of an obstacle that needs to be overcome in order to keep winning work while the demand for BIM compliance is increasing globally.
"For businesses with no existing BIM capability, buying-in means they’re not among the 55% of NBS survey respondents who expressed concerns about being left behind in the evolving construction market."
However, this is something of a misconception. It also highlights how such businesses are yet to grasp what they’re really taking on when it comes to BIM implementation. Rather than focusing on the cost of software, companies need to appreciate that BIM is far more about change management throughout their organisation. It’s principally about processes and this needs to be fully understood if they’re going to benefit from the time and cost savings offered by a fully-integrated and seamlessly functioning BIM strategy.
Only once people can see beyond the technology can business comprehend the positive outcomes BIM implementation will have on the way they work in the future.
Leaping the hurdles
One of quickest, most reliable and fail-safe ways for businesses to break the BIM barrier and visualise the long term benefits without being blinded by technology is to buy-in BIM expertise and services. In ensuring firms are fully equipped at each and every stage of each BIM project journey, acquiring third party services means no contract is ever unwinnable. Whether you’re operation is small, medium or large, outsourcing is also exceptionally cost effective. In allowing companies to bid for bigger and more profitable contracts ROI is exceptionally rapid.
For businesses with no existing BIM capability, buying-in means they’re not among the 55% of NBS survey respondents who expressed concerns about being left behind in the evolving construction market. For those with an existing but modest team of BIM practitioners in-house, purchasing add-ons as needed means winning larger and more lucrative projects is no problem.
Whether you’re looking for a 3D model evaluation service, 3D modelling services, 3D laser scanning services or 3D modelling from Point Cloud service, you will benefit from the trust and expertise to be expected of a leading firm in the global MEP Services market.
