The design/construction industry’s shift to using the building information modeling (BIM) process has opened the gateway to managing large quantities of data to ensure complete coordination and integration among all facets of the building process.
The American Concrete Institute (ACI) Foundation’s Strategic Development Council (SDC) is matching donations up to $100,000 to support ongoing research for building information modeling (BIM) in the cast-in-place concrete industry.
The ConsensusDocs Coalition recently updated its Building Information Modeling (BIM) Addendum, which was originally published in June 2008. The revision group was made up of practioners familiar with the technical, legal, and risk management aspects of BIM.
Building information modeling (BIM) is changing the way construction projects are both designed and delivered, offering challenge and opportunity for stakeholders. This interoperability opens up new worlds for alternative project delivery and provides the ability to support masonry design earlier in the project than ever before.
Enabling any computer-assisting design (CAD) software to be delivered from the Cloud to a browser on any device anywhere brings down a huge barrier to making digital design tools accessible to everyone involved in a construction project. Perhaps even more importantly, this model opens up a whole new way for team members to collaborate very closely with one another
