Adopting BIM in a company is a big step that requires some organisation. In fact, this change does not happen overnight. Gradually, the necessary experience is acquired and the evolution towards integrated BIM continues. TASE offers an action plan able to help large and small companies alike get started.
Our tips for successful BIM implementation:
- Involvement of all parties
BIM is a way of increasing your effectiveness and your performance with a view to achieving better results. Good collaboration and communication allow you to reduce errors and delivery quality projects.
There are 3 levels of BIM integration:
BIM Level 1: The isolated digital model
This level consists of using modelling software instead of design software to produce plans, sections, elevations and detailed drawings.
Within the Autodesk ecosystem, this involves using Revit instead of AutoCAD.
Once the basics are in place, we can introduce the simultaneous work of several modellers on the same project within the company as well as extending the modelling to all phases of the project.
BIM level 2: the collaborative digital model
This level consists of the implementation of three new aspects:
Multidisciplinary collaboration requiring an exchange protocol between partners
Data extraction which may lead to an adaptation of modelling conventions, with a view to extracting quantities for example
Various simulations (phasing, structure calculation, sizing of techniques, PEB calculation, etc.) which may require the adaptation of modelling conventions and the coding of properties
At this BIM level, work is based on file exchange but not on a collaborative platform.
BIM level 3: the integrated digital model
This level is the highest BIM level and uses Cloud technologies thus allowing integrated and real-time work with all teams involved. The different tools are interoperable and accessible from anywhere.
