Over the last decade, design and construction industries have widely embraced Building Information Modeling, otherwise known as BIM. BIM utilizes 3D real-time modeling technology to coordinate a building’s data, from its design and construction through the duration of its life cycle.
With BIM, all building details – design, document production, construction planning, performance predictions and cost estimates, etc. – are centralized and readily accessible. When changes are made and recorded, BIM automatically updates every trickle-down detail. Errors and information loss that commonly occurs when a project is handed from designer to contractor to owner is virtually eliminated, saving time, improving efficiency, and reducing costs.
Recently, BIM has extended its reach to the job site with BIM-to-field technology. Three dimensional BIM models and CAD files are merged onsite with advanced positioning technology to provide pinpoint laser layouts of various components. Using only a robotic central station and a handheld controller, one person can plot a complex layout in a fraction of the time, manpower and expense previously needed.
BIM is being more and more widely used and is touted as the future of building design and construction methodology. R. Baker and Son uses BIM technology frequently to determine building features, simplify logistical details and allow easy detection of potential problems.
