In the Australian AEC professions, it is largely accepted that the mass adoption of software capable of meaningful contribution to BIM is indeed here.
Among architects and engineers, the use of BIM is predominantly happening in medium to large practices where implementation will take a number of years. Inside these practices across the industry, an internal version of the technology adoption cycle is beginning again...
-By including all life safety systems in the BIM rendering, engineers improve the building’s model as a whole.
Know how BIM can help integrate all fire and life safety systems in a building’s model, not just suppression, detection, and alarm.Learn how BIM technology can change how buildings operate throughout their lifecycles if it is used to its full potential.Understand that effectiveness of BIM is limited only by the amount of information available in the model.
