In addition to that, our experts know how to create strong BIM Requirements and Strategies. Allow us to also share that in today’s blog, we intend to focus on everything related to BIM implementation. So, let’s get started without any delays!  

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process of generating and managing the physical and functional characteristics or data of an infrastructure or a building. Unlike developing 2D drawings, poor record management and the lack of real-time communication in traditional building methods, BIM offers a highly effective collaborative approach to designing, constructing and managing built environments. 

Now that you know what BIM is, let’s talk about the importance of BIM Requirements & BIM Strategy

To begin with, let’s get to know what is meant by BIM Requirements and Strategy. We need to mention that BIM does not work on a one-size-fits-all approach. That means that for every project, BIM requirements and strategy will be different. By keeping that in mind and focusing on your project requirements, it will be easy for your teams and ours to achieve the goals that we’ve set at the inception of the project. 

Laying a solid foundation for all the processes and resources is crucial for successful project delivery. We would like to mention here that when you have defined clear requirements for your projects, you won’t face any challenges while doing your thing. Having clear objectives in mind, one can ensure that they stay on the right track while also continuing to move in the forward direction. 

But there is more to it. For example; by developing strong BIM Requirements, you and your team members can ensure the smooth delivery of the project. That too, by being in full control of your project’s progress – with reduced errors and enhanced communication. Want to know something that’s even more exciting? You will be able to meet all your deadlines – even if they are super tight. Let’s now have a look at the components of strong BIM Requirements: 

Before BIM is implemented in a project, it is important for all the stakeholders to also define the requirements that will shape the future of their project. For example; you will have to consider all the components that are crucial for your project such as establishing standardised data formats and determining the Level of Detail (LOD) that is required. 

What makes strong BIM requirements

Furthermore, you will also have to work on setting the protocols for information exchange within the various disciplines and you will be good to go for this stage. By now, you would have ensured the development of an interoperable BIM environment where all the stakeholders will have easy access to information. 

By creating strong BIM requirements, DDC Solutions will empower your teams for decision-making while also mitigating all sorts of risks that may arise during the project. We are sure that you must have heard the terms standardization and customization concerning BIM requirements. Allow us to talk about them in this part of our blog. 

The process of standardization allows the creation of a unified, cohesive ecosystem by strengthening BIM in your project. It is also crucial for all sorts of construction projects. When we develop a standardized method to work for BIM requirements, we not only utilize your time and resources the right way. But we also bring all the stakeholders to come together and move towards project completion in a shared platform.  Moreover, by opting for standardization in your projects, our teams won’t have to develop it every time we have to work on something new for you. Because we will have a starting point to work on different types of projects assigned by you. 

The process of customization is as important as the process of standardization. Once we develop a template to get started in the customization context, we won’t have to create anything from scratch. Here, we would also like to mention that you must keep in mind that every project is unique when it comes to size, complexity or challenges for that matter. So, while we have a template to work on, we will ensure that the requirements of a specific project are met as planned. To do that without disrupting the overall progress of your project, we will interact with you from time to time to include the project’s unique aspects in BIM requirements.  

And now it is time for us to share what makes a strong BIM strategy!  

Once we have defined the objectives of a project with you, we will make sure that we work towards achieving them too. To do that, all we will have to do is allow the well-defined BIM strategy to serve as the guiding light. Bear in mind that by allowing us to align BIM goals with the project’s objectives and scope, you will find yourself on the road to success at every stage. 

Also, our strong BIM strategy does not only focus on the technical aspects of the project but also includes equipping the stakeholders with the right kind of training and skills so that they can make the most of BIM processes. Furthermore, the BIM strategy serves as an organised blueprint for your construction projects. We must also mention that as per the BIM requirements, BIM strategy varies to meet the needs of a specific project. 

Components of BIM Strategy

In this part of our blog, we would like to talk about the BIM strategy components. But before we do that, you must know that you will find us right beside you at every step of the way while we implement BIM requirements & strategy in your projects. 

The most effective BIM strategies are those which comply with the general business strategy of a company which intends to develop an infrastructure or a building. This component is crucial and must be followed for all projects – regardless of their scale. Otherwise, there is a very high chance of the project being failed ultimately resulting in huge financial losses and wastage of time. 

Without the presence of all the stakeholders to discuss and decide what needs to be done, and when and how a construction project cannot move towards completion. So, to ensure the success of a BIM strategy, all the stakeholders must work in a shared environment. This won’t only help them detect clashes and conflicts well before time but they will also be in a better position to revise their requirements and update their strategy accordingly.  

The general way of working is to work on the results by completely ignoring the starting point. And when that becomes a ritual, then no one can stop you from facing challenges and then some more. To make your BIM strategy work the way you intend to, DDC Solutions will help you stay on the right track – at all times. 

We understand the importance of staying updated with all that’s happening in a certain project. To empower you and your teams with the latest information, we help you visualize the possibilities by engaging with you occasionally. By doing so, we will be able to develop an accurate and highly effective BIM strategy which will prove to be beneficial in every aspect. 

The whole process of mapping out is indeed a herculean task and boring as well. However, if you want to have proactive approaches to identifying potential disruptions before they materialize, you should always opt for it.  

The aforesaid components are indispensable parts of any successful BIM strategy. To begin with, identify the starting point vis-a-vis the objectives you want to achieve throughout the project lifecycle. While laying out the roadmap, you need to make sure that all components of your strategy support all KPIs in your department and laid the foundation for the solid success as well.  

Like any other successful project management strategy, it is essential to have a clear metrics set. Likewise, your overall organizational BIM strategy should entail the process of actively measuring, reporting, and responding to these metrics.  

We are also aware that it might be a little overwhelming for you. But if you have come this far, we would like to share how our experts at DDC Solutions are fully equipped to get things done by implementing BIM in your projects. So, continue reading the blog because you are this close to making your next business deal or project the one that you will forever be proud of.
