Construction Tech is undeniably an exponentially increasing market
in the Construction Territory.
Digitalization is the future of construction. Technologies
like 5D BIM, AI, AR / VR, HD Surveying and Geolocation have made an
authoritative impact on the way the construction industry operates.
The idea of Technology meets Construction basically becomes a one
stop solution for all the existing voids in the construction space.
The integration of technology makes the entire process easier
and also well rounded. The process of building an asset would
be much more effective when done efficiently.
Why is Tech in Construction important?
It is a no-brainer fact that digitalized technology and software
rollouts are occurring practically in every industry. Construction
Industry in the similar context is actively adapting the culture of
blending technology into daily work practices to boost productivity
and to be relevant in the market and in the current era.
A report by McKinsey a few years ago, suggested that the
construction sector was lacking productivity in comparison to the
others when it came to quantifying the global labor productivity
rate which is quite un-noticed.
There are three parameters to be considered when evaluating the
efficiency of building an asset. They can be termed as follows:
Each factor has a distinct relation with the quantitative efficiency
of the project.
The end project can be termed as “efficient” when :
👉🏻 Cost - When the project is designed and built with minimal or
within the targeted budget
👉🏻 Quality - Uncompromised and extremely high quality
👉🏻 Time - When the project is designed and built in the pre-fixed
Building Information Modeling (BIM) popularly known as BIM ticks all
the above mentioned checkboxes.
What is BIM ?
Building Information Modeling famously known as BIM has already
revolutionized the Construction Industry. BIM presents Architecture,
Engineering and Construction ( AEC ) into Digitalization. It
cohesively clusters multi-factored data to generate a digitalized
representation for the built asset.
Here are a few definitions we thought you might find useful 👇🏻
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the foundation of digital
transformation in the architecture, engineering, and construction
thenbs.com, BIM is a process for creating and managing information on a
construction project across the project lifecycle.
Wikepedia, BIM is a process supported by various tools, technologies and
contracts involving the generation and management of digital
representations of physical and functional characteristics of
What does BIM do?
BIM enables us to acquire digital descriptions of every aspect of
the build asset
BIM is already proven to be a game changer in the construction
industry. It stands out and is reliable because of its niche to
project development in a highly collaborative environment
BIM makes resource management furthermore accessible, improves
collaboration and majorly reduces redundancy which is a constant
problem in the construction industry
BIM revolves around reducing the redundancy that exists in the
conventional construction process and aims at eliminating it and
in turn increasing the efficiency
BIM helps minimize the huge chunks of waste generated during the
construction process in the context of time and material
What are the Stages of BIM?
BIM is extremely structured and unlike other conventional
There are four broad stages of BIM Implementation 1.
Evaluation and assessment 2. Project Pre-Planning 3.
Design and Construction 4. Operations and Maintenance ( Post
With a structured process and pre-planned agenda, BIM enables the
entire construction to be extremely efficient in all the parameters.
BIM has a well structured process that enables design
and construction teams to increase their productivity and be time
efficient. It allows them to have a note of the data that is
created during the process, analyze them and to better their
operations and maintenance activities. It allows us to handle
and overcome issues like over costs, redundancy, QC Issues and
project delays and makes the entire process much easier. The
most recent version of BIM is known as the 5D BIM, it enables the
construction team to have shorter project cycles, increase in
productivity and a better project scope understanding.
BIM vs Conventional Construction Methods
BIM offers a commendable level of reliability and efficiency that it
never goes unnoticed. A few advantages of BIM over conventional
construction methods can be listed as follows:
Increased control over the project
Reduces tedious work of information production and redundancy
Automates construction production management
Higher build quality
Increases cost efficiency by decreasing planning issues
Easier to overview and maintain
Increased collaboration across build teams through all phases of
Reduces time delays
Companies Using BIM for Projects
The rate of BIM uptake in the construction and industrial sectors
has accelerated over recent years.
Statistica states that construction professionals using the tool
have risen from 13% in 2011 to 73% in 2020.
Leading names that have embraced the technology include the
Dubai-based architectural firm
Killa Design, which
has been a pioneer behind some of Dubai’s most iconic buildings,
such as the Museum of the Future.
These giants have been using BIM and clearly have an edge above all
their significant competitors in the market.
So, it can be said that investing in BIM ultimately results in
acquiring better results.
