Are you mulling over integrating BIM (Building Informational Modeling) in your practices by hiring experts, but the cost factor is holding you back? Well, you should not! Because BIM consultants make your practice more efficient by enhancing collaboration, improving risk management, and avoiding costly delays.

BIM consultants harness the power of digital revolution to make AEC (architectural, engineering, and construction) practices more productive. Therefore, conducting a cost-benefit analysis for hiring a BIM consultant involves evaluating both tangible and intangible benefits against the potential costs. 

BIM experts understand the whole concept of BIM does not involve some fancy acronyms. Rather, it aims to make project delivery more efficient by streamlining processes. And they do so by thoroughly assessing your current management and operational workflows to identify inefficiencies and bottlenecks. Once done with this part, they craft and implement workflows that enhance collaboration among stakeholders by ensuring that every one of them has access to the latest information.  

Likewise, enhanced collaboration translates into reduced time and resources that are required for project management and operations. (Yes, you guessed it right! All of this ultimately translates into reduced costs) 

But this cost efficiency does not only stem from streamlined practices. BIM experts use their expertise to minimize costs in construction projects. By harnessing the immense power of digital designs, BIM experts identify potential clashes in early design phases and help to resolve the same in first phase of project lifecycle. What does it mean for your practice? That reworks and material waste will be reduced significantly.  

The third factor that contributes to cost efficiency is improved risk management. BIM experts use BIM-enabled simulations and analysis to assess, manage, and mitigate risks to make your practice more cost-efficient.

Advanced Risk Management in Construction

It is pertinent here to mention that BIM consultants assist with risk management in all three design, construction, and operation phases of the project. They use their experience and learnings from previous projects to devise strategies for effective risk management. This way they slash the impact of unforeseen events on project costs.  

Compliance is an integral component of BIM. If you do not adhere to standardization, it will carry legal repercussions and the same will translate into hefty fines and delays. The result? The cost of your project will rise because of reworks. This is where BIM experts come in handy. They ensure compliance and standardization with complex standards such as ISO 19650 while aligning your operations with contemporary practices.  

The ISO 19650 standard is an international standard for managing information over the whole life cycle of a built asset using building information modelling (BIM). It contains all the same principles and high-level requirements as UK BIM Framework and is closely aligned with the current UK 1192 standards. 

Again, BIM experts will help you adopt ISO 19650 in your practice. This way you gain a strategic advantage because  

  1. By ensuring compliance you demonstrate commitment to best practices in the overly complex AEC industry. 
  1. Adherence means your firm manages data and produces documentation in universally understood and accepted manners.
