Although not yet used universally by construction companies, Building Information modelling (BIM) offers many advantages over traditional draughting systems. For starters, it can lead to better planning and design, enabling you to visualise the completed building and all its components and systems before work even begins. This will help you make the most of the available space and resources available.
Secondly, it can help you save money on materials since it can track and monitor resources. Providing support for prefabrication, BIM allows you to more easily prefabricate components of a project off-shore.
Since it can mean a substantial investment in technology, you can always outsource BIM to companies like Hope Draughting, who deliver the latest in 3D laser scanning; this can be the ideal starting point for building information modelling.
Hope Draughting are a part of the Engenda Group Ltd who specialise in project management, design and 3D scanning. We regularly produce detailed 3D engineering CAD models for our clients.
