Do you have nagging questions about investing in BIM for your small company? You don`t know if Building Information Modelling is right for you? We recommend not to miss out the benefits of this powerful tool.
Every company that is involved in the business of construction should use BIM – whether small or big. The big companies have bigger projects and they have more money to invest into the latest technology, but the smaller companies are still suspicious about investing in this software. There are several myths about BIM.
Myth #1 – BIM is only for big companies and big projects
This tool helps you to calculate costs within the design and save money on budgeting and evaluation. Users can have all documentation automatically updated.
Myth #2 – BIM products are expensive
Getting started with BIM doesn`t have to be costly. The Autodesk, AutoCAD, Revit LT Suite is an affordable way to get started with creating high-quality 3D models.
Myth #3 – Learning BIM is time-consuming
Learning BIM can be convenient for even the busiest company. For example, you need 20 min to complete the “Get Started” online training, 1 hour to practice the Revit LT fundamentals and 6 hours to learn Revit LT essentials for modelling, architecture and documentation.
Myth #4 – Productivity suffers during the transition to BIM
More than half of BIM users experience a 50% productivity gain in the long run or nearly 20% of users experience productivity gains of more than 100%.
All these myths are just misconception, because transitioning to BIM is approachable to any small company as a result of a range of solutions.
Small companies should understand that BIM is a great investment, because in addition to providing them the usual and well known benefits (such as collaboration, coordination and visualisation for better project outcomes), BIM adoption now will prepare them for the future. In the near future no one will probably talk about this tool, as it will then become the way of functioning for the construction industry.
Small companies can make decisions and adapt to client/project/industry needs really quickly, especially if they`ve learnt how to use BIM before it really matters on a live project. BIM is an opportunity, not the treat many think it is. But only if you consider your time as an investment. We also provide BIM documentation, diagrams & photorealistic renderings that extend the concept of an ordinary visual tool into an intelligent, multi-media product that will help your projects at every step of the development process, from concept design through to construction.
