  • How do you make your investment in BIM worthwhile? | Competitive Advantage
    82 1 of organisations with BIM and 57 5 planning BIM have a person responsible for BIM in their organisation It would seem that a strong contributing factor to the successful adoption of BIM is resource A cultural shift needs to take place where staff have an understanding of the importance of BIM to the business And a selected member of staff is empowered with overseeing the implementation of BIM with the support and authority to implement changes where needed BIM is a major change to how the construction industry will operate so surely should warrant a significant investment in resource Responsibility The research reveals that the main function influencing the decision to invest in BIM is Marketing 32 closely followed by Technical 30 and Sales 27 We often hear that sales and marketing need to work more closely in the case of BIM collaboration is also needed with the technical team Applying the marketing perspective to a technical subject will mean BIM is used as a tool to raise the profile of your construction product allowing you to gain business advantage Working with sales and technical also ensures you are delivering accurate information and providing what the Specifier wants Perhaps BIM will not just increase collaboration between Client Architect Engineer Contractor and Manufacturer but also between Sales Marketing and Technical Development of BIM Objects Just over 38 of organisations develop their BIM objects with the help of external hosting sites while just under 36 use internal resources This choice is one of the big issues for manufacturers starting on their BIM journey Factors that should be considered are the benefits of having an internal resource ownership of the objects and location of the objects for downloads Another important decision is the software to use Although the research shows that Autodesk Revit is the most widely used BIM software companies should consider the preferences of their target Specifiers The findings in the research suggest that once BIM objects are available requests increase significantly There are a number of providers of BIM objects so shop around And of course there is much free advice out there with the first port of call being the BIM4M2 working group http www bim4m2 co uk Stephen Thompson Chair of BIM4M2 in his recent Twitter chat for Barbour Products summarises this well BIM doesn t come off the shelf there s no one size fits all solution Information is key focus on structuring data Ask customers what they need and in what format don t rush out and spend significant sums of money without first understanding what you need The data can be as simple as an excel spreadsheet to meet requirements of Level 2 for 2016 Conclusion So in summary give careful consideration to the opportunities investing in BIM will give to retain and gain new business When investing make sure you allocate the resource that BIM deserves and get your marketing sales and technical teams working in collaboration And do ask for help
