4 Steps to Successful BIM Implementation [INFOGRAPHIC]

November 21, 2017

There is a lot of hype surrounding BIM these days, and rightly so. It’s revolutionizing the way contractors are approaching their entire process, and even reducing wasted materials, time, labor, and money across project lifecycles.

According to a McGraw Hill 2012 SmartMarket Report, the majority of North American MEP contractors have implemented BIM. However, while some firms are convinced and fully converted in the process, others remain unsure as to whether BIM adoption will ever deliver a significant return on investment (ROI).

If you’re someone who views the cost of BIM adoption with uncertainty, implementation could be seen as a hurdle that needs to be overcome to win bigger, better contracts. Several firms think that if the contract doesn’t demand BIM, why spend time and money implementing it? While understandable, the irony is that it’s this approach that can prevent an MEP contractor from achieving BIM ROI. Deciding to implement it on a project-by-project basis, or when it’s a requirement, makes adoption much more costly. However, making a commitment to embracing proper BIM implementation, and engaging with it across the board, is far more cost-effective.

If you’ve ever wondered how to properly implement a BIM process for your firm, or even if you’re skeptical about successful adoption, take a look at the infographic below. You’ll learn four key steps to implementation:

  1. Assess Your Current Capabilities
  2. Determine Your Goals and Ambitions
