The devel­op­ments in the field of BIM (Build­ing Infor­ma­tion Model) are mov­ing rapidly and we gain more knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence every day. This rein­forces our vision on BIM.

Work­ing with 3D BIM offers a lot of oppor­tu­ni­ties to reduce (con­struc­tion) errors and obtain clear com­mu­ni­ca­tion. BIM is a way of design­ing where the build­ing is built in the com­puter as a 3D model, the model is con­nected with a data­base with spe­cific infor­ma­tion. It requires a dif­fer­ent, but fun, way of work­ing for all par­ties work­ing on the project. There­fore BIM goes fur­ther than just 3D-​modeling.

After the pre­lim­i­nary design we start mod­el­ing together with a con­struc­tor. We model in Revit. In all most every project we use ‘big-​BIM’. This means that a num­ber of linked mod­els form the BIM. By work­ing together at the same time a lot of dou­ble work is avoided and com­mu­ni­ca­tion and coor­di­na­tion between the par­tic­i­pants is a must. Ide­ally, an instal­la­tion advi­sor will also model his instal­la­tion and even at a later stage sup­pli­ers can process their prod­ucts in the model. That is not a neces­sity but it helps once again to har­mo­nize the process and under­stand each other bet­ter. In the end it cre­ates a bet­ter adapted design in less time.

The inte­rior and exte­rior of the build­ing are eas­ier to under­stand in 3D mak­ing use of impres­sions, film, draw­ings, Google Earth and orbit­ing. That will give both pro­fes­sion­als and indi­vid­u­als more insight into the design and com­mu­ni­ca­tion will improve. Pre­vent­ing bot­tle­necks at an early stage will defin­i­tively con­tribute to a smoother process.

The dif­fer­ent mod­els are sim­i­lar because they are all con­nected, this align­ment requires a lot of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. In addi­tion, we have soft­ware that detects and reports the errors between the mod­els. This so-​called ‘clash detec­tion’ helps to improve the qual­ity of the draw­ings. This way of work­ing results in less ‘sur­prises’ dur­ing the build­ing process.

In addi­tion to error reduc­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion BIM offers even more advan­tages;
• higher pro­duc­tion speed of draw­ings;
• high-​quality input for cal­cu­la­tions and main­te­nance bud­gets;
• sim­ple con­trol of sup­pli­ers 3D pro­duc­tion draw­ings;
• by using data from BIM, advice costs on a num­ber of other com­po­nents are reduced.

There is no one cor­rect way for work­ing together in BIM. The process is estab­lished by the wishes and expec­ta­tions of all par­tic­i­pants of the design process.
There­fore each process is dif­fer­ent, depen­dent on the details of the project and wishes of our clients.
