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 timeline.
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
Here are a few definitions we thought you might find useful 👇🏻
According to Autodesk, Building
Information Modeling (BIM) is the foundation of digital
transformation in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry.
According to thenbs.com, BIM is a
process for creating and managing information on a
construction project across the project lifecycle.
According to 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 places.
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 construction methodologies.
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 Project )
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 the project
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
These giants have been using BIM and clearly have an edge above all their significant competitors in
So, it can be said that investing in BIM ultimately results in acquiring better results.
