McGraw-Hill Construction reports less than three percent of new construction projects utilized BIM in 2007. Today, BIM is being used in the design of an estimated 38% of new starts, a figure McGraw-Hill expects to double to nearly 75% by 2014. BIM is changing the way projects are designed and built. Traditionally, the design and placement of all elements involved in a building’s construction have been drafted in static, two-dimensional drawings using CAD software.
To create a virtual, three-dimensional mock-up of a building, BIM pulls information (digital content models) from a database on the properties of each building component. The results of BIM are better estimations, collaboration and construction accuracy combined with reduced rework in the field. Join this webinar to find out more about BIM, become familiar with the key concepts and tools, and to learn how to incorporate BIM into your business and start gaining immediate benefits!
