Planning a construction project is a gigantic assignment. It a complex effort to match contractors availability, materials and building sequence. Once the schedule is in place still difficult to really tell if it’s the most efficient meeting all project criteria. ALICE breaks down the individual components of the building to understand the scope of the […]
BIM + AI = ALICE Technologies
The benefits of using BIM
Construction project managers that have used BIM technology see the advantages of such process. They say that BIM helps facilitate the flow of information across multiple project channels. A study done by Dodge Data & Analytics showed 43% of surveyed contractors reported more efficient project-wide communication when BIM was implemented. The end result for construction […]
How to improve design process using BIM?
During the project study and design phases. Using the BIM process allows you to quickly create and review multiple design scenarios and easily convey those options to the client while maintaining a single model. BIM offers different tools to create schematic massing models, as well as detailed construction-ready models, without losing any of the design […]
BIM periodic table
NBS’s Periodic Table of BIM is an interesting way to visualize steps that are necessary to a successful BIM implementation. Inspiring by the periodic table of elements, the NBS’s table presents the important elements of BIM in way easy to visualize and nice to keep as reference. Please find below how the table is structured […]
BIM Software list
As mentioned in a post before , the term BIM started to find create its root after the paper entitled “Building Information Modeling”, published in 2002 by Autodesk. Find a list with the different software available for those wanting to explorer the BIM world. Document Management Autodesk BIM 360 Planning & Design Autodesk Revit Architecture Graphisoft […]
What are the BIM Levels?
One of the standardized tools to measure the degree of implementation (or maturity) BIM in a project is precisely the BIM Levels. It is a simple scale created by the government of the United Kingdom (NBS) that allows us to quickly recognize at what stage we are with respect to the use of BIM in […]
The model-based approach increases efficiency within individual organizations and on the project coordination delivery. Building information modeling can drive time and budget savings for building and infrastructure projects. Please find below some key benefits. For designers and supply chain partners, benefits include: Thought the standards it is possible to increase collaboration, make delivery process easier […]
BIM WORLD PARIS – March 28 & 29 2018
The 4th BIM World will take place under the patronage of the President of the Republic. Space will also be reserved for more than 170 exhibitors, from builders to software companies, and more than 57 countries will be represented. An ambitious and very comprehensive program aimed at accelerating the democratization and adoption of BIM in […]
As a concept, the foundation of BIM was first documented in the paper Augmenting Human Intellect (1962) written by Douglas C. Englebart. Englebart suggests object based design, parametric manipulation and a relational database could come together to realise a vision where … “the architect next begins to enter a series of specifications and data. When […]
What is BIM?
What is Building Information Modelling (BIM)? BIM or Building Information Modelling is a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project lifecycle. One of the key outputs of this process is the Building Information Model, the digital description of every aspect of the built asset. This model draws on information […]
