Advantages and challenges of BIM

  • Better coordination: Coordination is not as difficult as with 2D drawings. BIM - software can highlight interferences immediately.
  • Less man-hours: This translates to more efficient costing for the office (client).
  • Greater productivity : The daily input per man-hour is of higher quality, so that the output is advanced further.
  • Better quality design and detailing: More time spent on design and less time spent on drafting.
  • Control of project information: The BIM database, when used to its fullest advantage, will become the central source for all project information.
  • Opens up new markets: The database that is the model gives rise to new services for architects to take advantage of, such as cost estimating, scheduling, and imaging.
