BIM is no-Utopia How Design Changes Deteriorate BIM Efficiencies and How to Manage BIM Costs Webinar

  • 12/13/2016

Successful electrical contractors are increasingly using tools like BIM and prefabrication to deliver electrical scopes of work more efficiently, resulting in lower costs and increased quality. Currently, customers have the wrong understanding that BIM can make it easy for them to change their design requirements whenever they desire, as changes can be virtually made in the model. This misunderstanding undermines the real benefit of BIM for effective construction collaboration under approved design requirements. This seminar summarizes the finding of a study funded by ELECTRI International to investigate current experiences of trade contractors of executing BIM-related tasks under design changes, and the best practices to manage and control BIM tasks and costs.
