Part 1 of this article explored the meaning of BIM and explained its place in today’s construction industry.
Part 2 demonstrates specific benefits of the BIM process and shows how Eurban use this at every stage of the design process: from conception to completion.
Summarised below are the key benefits at each stage of RIBA’s Plan of Work:
RIBA Stage 1 – Preparation and Brief
RIBA Stage 2 – Concept Design
RIBA Stage 3 – Developed Design
RIBA Stage 4 – Technical Design
RIBA Stage 5 – Construction
RIBA Stage 6 – Hand Over and Close Out
RIBA Stage 7 – Operation
Huge cost savings have already been made where BIM is used in early project stages and onwards. With government backing and growing industry adoption it seems that the benefits of BIM will be seen increasingly in the months and years to come.
