Traditional working methods provide challenges for the sector

Traditional working methods provide challenges for the sector

Traditional project execution techniques have failed the construction sector and also its clients due to a lack of trust in shared data and wrong estimates of how to reduce risk and responsibility. However, the current approach is to digitise existing old (document-centric) methods.

This will not address the underlying difficulties confronting the building industry and the built environment as a whole. Systemic issues in the sector are expected to be representations of any or all of the following:

  • Briefing, proposals, and pricing are examples of rudimentary information exchanges.
  • Task and activity planning is not widely communicated or uniform among team members.
  • Subjective judgments (design, project management, etc.) based on inferences from ambiguous, frequently partial, evidence that is ultimately unverifiable
  • Cost information that is inconsistent and not adequately clear across the project
  • Failure to interact early with the groups who will later operate the developed assets
  • Lack of devotion to timetables and deadlines. Call Al Khoory a Revit Modelling Company in UAE!
  • Late notification of concerns without the appropriate supporting data
  • Inconsistent communication throughout the project (written or verbal instructions and comments
  • A lack of a good framework for capturing and applying "lessons learnt" from task to task

Any of the aforementioned factors, alone or in combination, can jeopardise the asset's efficiency during delivery, use, and disposal. If anyone stakeholder fails to contribute to the workflow, the process fails. The BIM process necessitates two basic components:

  • It must be clearly stated what information each participant need. The Exchange Information Requirements specify this (EIR)
  • Participants must describe (and agree on) how they will distribute information as needed. The Implementation Plan for BIM includes this (BEP)

BIM's potential to boost efficiency and decrease waste can only be realised if there are procedures for information exchange, deliverable standards, and processes in place to guarantee that all parties contribute as required. Call us for the point cloud BIM modelling services in Dubai!

This isn't a huge departure from what architects now provide. What is novel is the information deliverable's strict and explicit scope and structure. This requirement's scope and deliverable must also be contractual, just like any other traditional scope of deliverable.

The function of the Employer's Information Manager

It is insufficient for a customer to show an interest in BIM on a project. The client's involvement must be much deeper. This can be aided by hiring someone to do the duties necessary for successful BIM implementation.

This position is known as the 'Employer's Information Manager' in the CIC (Construction Industry Council) -BIM Protocol. The CIC document 'Outline Scope of Activities for the Post of the Information Manager' outlines the obligations of this role.
