For some people, BIM (Building Information Modelling) is only 3D planning, others see BIM as a fancy new trend in the construction industry and yet others may not fully understand what BIM is. Although there is evidence that BIM is best practice for collaboration and information sharing at the handover stage, many stakeholders in the construction industry are still cautious about investing into the new world of digital planning, construction and operation.Virtual Meeting
The built environment is being challenged by many trends and disruptors: digital transformation, off-site manufacturing, sustainability concerns, an aging workforce leading to lack of skilled labor, as well as COVID-19, which is affecting the health, safety, and well-being of workers.
Organizations must remain resilient to meet challenges and continue to grow and flourish.
To become resilient, we must respond and adopt new ways of thinking and working. Building information modeling (BIM) can help address the climate, urbanization, performance and skills shortage challenges, alongside the implementation of many best practice approaches. Organizations that seize this opportunity will be able to compete successfully in global markets.
