There are some misconceptions about the BIM process floating around that we feel are worth exploring. Below are the top concerns voiced by our clients when discussing the BIM process:
Myth: BIM is only 3D drawings.
Busted: BIM is not just a 3D model, but instead the process of collecting and analyzing valuable information during design that is utilized during pre-construction, construction and post-construction.
Myth: The up front cost of BIM is more expensive than traditional construction drawings.
Confirmed: While the up front costs can be slightly higher than traditional methods, the BIM process saves construction dollars by identifying problems, facilitating installation and streamlining communication.
Myth: BIM is a fad and an unnecessary luxury.
Busted: The BIM process is a working tool that can be leveraged throughout the life of the building for maintenance and future renovations.
