Considering building your dream home? In the past, you’d have to engage in a lengthy back-and-forth between an architect, then a builder. It was months of snail mail and lengthy meetings that ate up a lot of time and resources. Fortunately, significant advances in modern technology have resulted in the creation of building information modeling, or BIM. Though first developed in the 1970s, BIM only began to gain popularity in the last decade.
Today, cutting-edge firms are exploring the benefits of BIM in residential design in Oklahoma City, OK. Now it’s your turn to find out why.
What is BIM?
For outsiders, building information modeling can be something of a nebulous term. Some confuse BIM for a technology, or for the tool that creates 3D images. BIM is much more than that—it’s a comprehensive method designed to incorporate all the various information generated on a project and organize it into such a way that it’s easily understandable by all parties involved (especially you).
There’s a huge number of building information modeling software benefits in Oklahoma City, OK.
BIM projects are invariably done with some form of cloud-based communication. That means changes to the plan or questions you might have are communicated immediately. The time savings is immeasurable, and the ease with which you can exchange and discuss ideas will shave days off your project time.
You’ve undoubtedly heard the expression, “Time is money.” That’s undoubtedly true for those construction projects that make use of BIM. One of the most significant expenses you’ll incur during the home building process is the amount of time spent sending plans back and forth between the interested parties, making adjustments to those plans and then sending them around to everyone once more. By centralizing your house plans in one spot, you eliminate a significant portion of the inconvenience (and expense) you’ll have to pay.
See the project
When you’re putting your plans down on paper, there’s only so far a drawing can take you. When those plans are layered with structural design notes and utility overlays, the final product can get lost. However, with BIM, you’ll see a visualization of your project before the first shovel hits the ground.
