Can you imagine being able to see and experience a building before it is constructed? This does not mean reviewing blueprints or watching a building information modeling (BIM) video, but virtually entering a room or building, walking around, and picking things up and rearranging them.
Everyone has heard the expression, “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” It is good advice for daily life, but how appropriate is this suggestion when it comes to design/construction professionals in their work?
In today’s workplace, collaboration is no longer an option, but rather a requirement—particularly for the construction industry, where project information needs to be shared among internal colleagues and team members, contractors, and subcontractors.
Building information modeling (BIM) is opening up new opportunities for the construction industry. Its adoption differs across various regions, but architects, consultants, engineers, and contractors are realizing the benefits of this new, collaborative way of designing, constructing, and maintaining a building.
