The 21st century has witnessed a large amount of technological advancements which are accountable for bringing tremendous comfort to human life. There’s no denying the fact technology has truly become the part and parcel of our daily life. In today’s time we can’t imagine ourselves without cell phones, as they are the most suitable tools used for interpersonal communication.
Similarly, technology has also influenced the AEC industry, and due to which a lot of changes have occurred in its landscape over the years. Building professionals across the globe are now using cutting-edge tools for the effective accomplishment of residential and commercial building projects. Construction projects which used to take months to complete can now be completed by design and construction professionals within few weeks provided right tools and technology is used by them.
High-end tools must be used by design and construction professionals in pre-construction because design for different building disciplines is created during it. BIM, which is the acronym for Building Information Modeling, is really very helpful for construction. BIM is the process of developing meticulous 3-D parametric models for architecture, structure and MEP.
These models are totally digital in nature and they effectively represent all the physical and functional characteristics of a building. Because of their digital nature, it’s quite easy for design and construction professionals to make changes in the design if required, which ultimately results in improving design quality.
Since BIM really provides architects, engineers, fabricators and other building stakeholders with phenomenal benefits, its influence in AEC industry is increasing really fast.
