Few technological advancements should have impacted the construction industry quite as profoundly as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the hardware and software solutions that make it possible. From the conceptual plans — when a project is nothing more than an idea — to the ongoing maintenance and management of the completed building as it evolves years into the future, we were all promised that BIM would impact the entire constructible workflow.
Regrettably, that’s not what most construction companies are experiencing today. But it’s not for lack of trying. There are a few companies that still haven’t jumped fully onboard with BIM in one or more aspects of their work, but most have.
And, to a limited extent, they’re reaping the benefits of doing so. But, are they seeing the kind of widespread holistic improvements we originally expected from BIM? Has their day-to-day work and their long-term outlook really changed?
For most, the honest answer is no.
That’s because BIM, as most people practice it, isn’t enough. In fact, BIM is just the beginning when placed in the context of a truly Constructible Process. So, while incorporating BIM into your workflow is certainly important, to see the revolutionary improvements you’re expecting, you need to go beyond BIM.
Access this guide today to learn how to upgrade your workflow using a truly Constructible Process.
