Promise of BIM in Construction
The promise of BIM is to build a structure virtually prior to physically constructing it. This allows project participants to design, analyze, sequence, and explore a project through a digital environment where it is far less expensive to make changes than in the field during construction, where changes are exponentially more costly. Today, this promise is becoming reality. An array of BIM software and mobile applications are delivering results that mitigate construction risk.
The Value of BIM in Construction
Now, innovation is becoming a part of the way contractors deliver their work and differentiate themselves from their competitors. As a result, we are starting to see a healthy ecosystem of supply and demand for ever better tools between technology vendors and construction management firms willing to invest to drive efficiencies, as is evident in the rise of contractors adopting BIM.

BIM helps to create from concept design process to completion. Almost all decisions about the building are being made in this phase of the design.
BIM 3D model has realistic view of any infrastructure along with data rich information. Architects, contractors and engineers use the 3D model to visualize, design and coordinate the construction of a building end to end.
An efficient design process starts with connecting project teams. Accelerate project delivery, reduce rework, and improve productivity by enabling teams to securely co-author BIM designs in real-time and streamline deliverable coordination.
UrbanBIM helps contractors manage risk and plan for successful construction process. If you detect and avoid problems before construction begins, you minimize expensive delay and rework. Design insight and project predictability from pre-construction to execution delivers more effective planning, coordination and control.
Not only does BIM provide a single platform for the collection and illustration of numerous dimensions of data, it ensures that the captured information remains accessible to all team members who wish to modify it, while keeping the data consistent and coordinated at all times. Therefore designers, architects, structural engineers, contractors, and owners are able to work more collaboratively and efficiently than ever before. The information contained in the BIM model is also highly actionable in order to help inform decision making and has been shown to reduce change orders and field-coordination problems over a project’s lifespan.
