How architectural firms can address design management challenges? 

How architectural firms can address design management challenges?  | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

Owing to challenges architectural firms resort to architectural CAD services, BIM ready designs and 3D visualization, and 3D rendering for establishing clarity amongst all disciplines, and enhancing the design communication. The aim of working with such digital rendering tools is the fact that no project stays isolated from the organization and multiple teams can work on the same project at the same time.

Design Visualization for Evolution of Best in Class Architectural Designs 

Design Visualization for Evolution of Best in Class Architectural Designs  | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

Photorealistic models developed using 3D modeling tools will add to the value of 3D models by adding visualization capabilities. By assigning physical attributes and characteristics of designs and nature such as shadows, their movements, lighting, shades, illumination changes as per weather and many more contributes to the enhancement of architectural designs.

For Airport Construction; Find yourself a BIM expert & not just a Harvard graduate

For Airport Construction; Find yourself a BIM expert & not just a Harvard graduate | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

While all construction sites are only colossal and haphazard in the initial stages, it is a well-designed plan and efficiently managed construction activities that turn the site into a facility. Aesthetically sound and structurally strong building from a construction site emerges with well-coordinated design plans such as in BIM.

Infrastructure Development Projects Should Utilise BIM 

Infrastructure Development Projects Should Utilise BIM  | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

BIM has to be brought onboard with interdisciplinary clash detection and resolution, and when the case is of meeting a standard threshold limit for MEP fit-outs. Particularly for infrastructure development projects like airport terminal construction, or a large township development, MEP clashes are the most crucial, owing to our archaic practice of including MEP layout designs after structural and architectural designs.

Efficiently light up Buildings with BIM; don’t just construct 

Efficiently light up Buildings with BIM; don’t just construct  | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it
Building with BIM doesn’t necessarily mean strict designs and construction planning; it means that leveraging the most of its capabilities to finish the project on time and maintaining the sanctity of designs by adhering to standards. It opens up avenues for design finalization which doesn’t let architects or MEP professionals to compromise with their designs.

3 Stories that Define BIM’s Influence on AEC industry

3 Stories that Define BIM’s Influence on AEC industry | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

If any general contractor were to ask name the most daunting challenge in constructing a commercial building, MEP layout design would top the list. On top of this, if the initial drafts are in 2D, it becomes all the more difficult to understand and detect the design clashes amongst building elements.

When BIM Supersedes 2D Drawings, Structural Engineers Need Collaboration Cosh | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

It’s been a while now that we, AEC industry professionals, are used to collaborative construction approach and involvement of multiple organizations working on a single building construction or infrastructure development project. However, despite all the collaborative approaches of BIM and partnering advocacy, even the most prominent EPC firms and construction contracting teams have experienced the silo mentality.

How the BIM is beneficial to AEC firms to implement in early stage of construction?

How the BIM is beneficial to AEC firms to implement in early stage of construction? | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it


In all EPC firms, the BIM is implemented at pre-construction stages only actually it should be implemented at the supply chain level as well. It has been implemented by a few well known AEC firms in AEC & they really found better returns on it. BIM helps in critical stages of construction & also adds long-term values throughout the various construction stages as well.

There are 3 P's of BIM: people, processes and policies | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

BIM is the stepping stone helping the AEC industry to progress, along with the technological evolution called generative design. The beauty is that specific constraints and objectives such as daylight, thermal performance and structural integrity, are taken into consideration by computer software algorithms to leverage BIM and help architects in generating computational or parametric building designs.

How Pivotal is 5D BIM to General Contractors?

How Pivotal is 5D BIM to General Contractors? | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

According to leading AEC industry professionals, large-scale construction projects with multiple complexities mean, extended deadlines for completion and lagging behind when it comes to existing knowledge of the market condition. Mandating BIM by various governments across the globe is taking a hold, which is far stronger than what EPC firms and individual stakeholders can realize.

Is BIM Getting Tough; Or Is It Just A Deceit?  | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

BIM was introduced with an aim to coordinate and collaborate architectural, structural and MEP layout designs. But today, BIM has come way too far than just coordinating these three disciplines and includes much more efficient designs for firefighting solutions, energy modeling, facility management etc.

Is BIM redefining the roles and working practices of the Quantity Surveyor?  | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

While there is always an option of manual evaluation from the drawings received from structural and MEP Engineers and Architects, it still is a laborious task and consumes additional time. Over and above, a manual evaluation won’t generate accurate outcomes. Integrating 5D BIM with cost estimating software provides an accurate value of QTO in one go.

BIM and Cloud: The Ultimate Solution for Efficient Construction Management 

BIM and Cloud: The Ultimate Solution for Efficient Construction Management  | BIM 4D Services | Scoop.it

For general contractors, delivering quality construction projects in minimal time is the key to get quick ROIs. However, delivering quality of work in construction sector has to start from grass root level since; lives of hundreds of inhabitants depend on it. Meeting both the ends of quality and quick building construction solutions was quite a challenge few years ago. However; with advent in technology, AEC fraternity has surpassed these barriers, and general contractors successfully clubbed BIM with Cloud technology for the betterment of construction practices.
