What is BIM?
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a process of digital design of a building or infrastructure
object. During this process, information about the building is created and managed at all stages of
its life circle. Modeling is developed from the initial concept of a project to its demolition. The
essence of the BIM service is to simplify the design, construction and operation of buildings.
BIM services covers many things: 2D (two-dimensional design, projection drawings), 3D (three-
dimensional design, model, 4D (model mapping in time), 5D (model quantitative modeling, usually
costs), nD (object life cycle, building management and maintenance) BIM is a complex process, so
it is important to find a company that has many years of experience and can offer experienced
In short, BIM is a smart 3D modeling process that helps you build infrastructure projects more
efficiently and accurately.
What are the benefits of BIM?
Before hiring professionals, it is necessary to find out whether the services they provide will bring
benefits. Facing BIM for the first time can raise many questions and incur significant costs. It is not
uncommon for customers to form a misconception about BIM services when they start developing
a project. You have to invest in software, train people. Getting started can be difficult, so it is not
uncommon case, when employees productivity declines at the begining. However, after a few
months, the speed of coordination increases significantly and the work becomes more efficient.
The BIM system allows all project participants to collaborate easily and efficiently. The use of BIM
reduces the documentation and the amount of work performed, as customers, designers and other
people working on the project can easily combine, verify and transfer information.
BIM provides a large amount of information, project and building management methods.
Using BIM can save you time and reduce your budget. Because BIM allows you to forecast
construction and operating costs.
Thanks to BIM, it is possible not only to save, but also to plan costs accurately. Additional costs are
often incurred during a project. With BIM, you may feel safe about not spending more than you
planned. BIM allows you to accurately plan project costs.
There are more benefits to BIM services. But most importantly, BIM allows for successful
collaboration and organization of design, supply, and construction processes, allowing BIM to
accurately estimate costs.
Using BIM, project can be completed faster. Collaborating with a BIM system is much easier,
reduces work, making work not only easier but also faster. With BIM, projects will always be
delivered on time.
Lower risk. With BIM, professionals can better understand the purpose, risks, and options of a
project before construction begins.
The benefits of BIM are obvious. The BIM system makes work faster, easier and more accurate, so
customers can be offered better results and a lower cost per project.
Advantages and disadvantages of BIM
BIM provides significant benefits to both project professionals and clients. Before using BIM or
before choosing professionals who use BIM, it is worth reviewing the pros and cons, then deciding
if BIM is worth paying attention to.
● Using BIM has a greater chance of avoiding design errors.
● BIM can speed up the design process.
● BIM is more advanced than CAD project coordination system.
● Software for BIM processes is more expensive than software for CAD processes. Because
professionals use more expensive equipment, they may ask for a higher price.
● There are not so many BIM services specialists. Because of the perceived shortage of BIM
professionals, some may ask a high price for their services. However, there are
professionals who have been using BIM for many years and can therefore offer a good
price and quality services.
● Export development of design and construction services.
● Reduction of design and construction costs. Professionals can immediately anticipate and
reduce costs, so they can offer a better price to customers.
● It is possible to analyze the building faster and easier.
BIM is used all over the world, so choosing professionals carefully who use BIM is worth it. BIM
helps the specialist optimize operations, which provides greater overall value for the same
investment. BIM is the added value that comes from collaboration throughout the life of an object.
How to choose a specialist?
To achieve effective results, it is not enough to simply choose good equipment. A BIM system can
provide many benefits, but it is important to find professionals who have years of experience.
You can choose specialists according to the following criteria:
Experience. BIM modeling services are provided by a number of specialists, but some of them are
not experienced enough to work quickly and efficiently and provide good results. It is worth
choosing a company that has a lot of experienced professionals. In this case, if the work is of poor
quality, it will be repaired immediately by a colleague with more experience.
Price. Software for BIM services processes costs a lot, so some professionals may offer a high
price. However, BIM allows for accurate budgeting and cost reduction, so some professionals may
offer a better price. There is no need to choose specialists by price, but price must be taken into
account. Experienced specialists will offer not only quality services, but also a good price.
Place. Note that BIM makes communication easy, so it is not necessary to choose the company
closest to your location. It is sometimes worth choosing a company located even in another
country. In this case, you can get a better price for quality services.
Delivery time. BIM allows you to reduce not only the budget but also the delivery time. However,
some professionals have a lot of work to do and cannot complete a project quickly. When choosing
a specialist, it is important to be informed immediately when the project is due to be completed.
You need to choose a specialist who will be able to deliver the project by the agreed time.
Security. Experienced specialists will make sure that the available information about the client will
be safe and inaccessible to persons who are not involved in the project.
Expert advice. It is worth taking the time to consult before hiring a company. If the selected
professionals are not in the same country, then it is possible to contact and meet the professionals
remotely. During the consultation, specialists can not only tell about the work being done, but also
introduce the BIM system, provide good advice on the project. Experienced professionals will be
able to tell during the consultation whether it is worth contacting them, or better to look for other
professionals who work with other technologies.
Work done. When choosing a specialist, it is important to be sure that he will be able to do the job
according to the client’s needs. Works done by trusted professionals are easy to find, they don’t
hide away from showing them to the client. If the chosen specialist does not show the work, then it
is worth choosing another who has completed more than several projects.
When choosing, it is worth taking a look at the professionals and the work they do. BIM allows
professionals to do a lot, so it is important to choose professionals who are experienced and can
take full advantage of all the features provided by BIM.
BIM technologies are used by professionals in many countries. BIM allows you to get the job done
more accurately, faster, and reduce budget, so professionals using BIM can deliver the best results
for customers. The BIM system not only makes the job easier and better, but also makes it easy for
professionals to communicate with each other, so there is no ambiguity and the work is done
flawlessly and on time.
