@caseyrutlandIntroductionBIM Acronyms - It means what?!BIM Myths & Pitfalls - Avoiding bad outcomesBIM Benefits - Your ProjectsBIM Benefits - Your CompanyBIM Tools - They’re not always what you think…BIM Culture - The culture of integrationWhat next?
@caseyrutlandBIM Myths & Pitfalls – Avoiding bad outcomes…Myth No.1 - I have to spend £10k per person to ‘do’ BIM.Myth No.2 - BIM is just a 3D model.Myth No.3 - This means more work for me & it takes longer.Myth No.4 - Revit = BIM
@caseyrutlandBIM Myths & Pitfalls – Avoiding bad outcomes…Pitfall No.1 - Hollywood BIMPitfall No.2 - Over-selling your own capabilityPitfall No.3 - Over-modellingPitfall No.4 - Don’t ignore the challenge. You must respond to yourbuyers and to theirs. An increasing number will want BIMdeliverables or workflow
@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your ProjectsBetter buildings.Less waste.Smoother info exchange.A nicer way to work
@caseyrutlandDemo.BIM Benefits – Your ProjectsBriefingDesign, Analysis & Documentation(Pre)FabricationConstructionOperation &MaintenanceRefurbishment
@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your ProjectsBriefing○ Clear, data –driven brief.○ Measureable against themodel.○ Employers Info Requirementsin a common format○ …which informs the ProjectBIM Execution Plan
@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your ProjectsDesign, Analysis & Documentation○ Early stage, actionableinformation○ Turn data into knowledge○ A single source of truth formultiple uses○ Swift document production &control○ Evolution of informationthrough the project○ Easier use of surveyedexisting conditions○ Greater accuracy
@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your Projects(Pre)Fabrication○ Evolving design data into pre-fabrication – avoidremodelling from scratch● Cheaper● Quicker● Easier○ Information fed intoprocurement programme○ Constructability checking
@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your ProjectsConstruction○ Easier 4D sequencing.○ Use of design data as opensharable data○ Integrated supply chain data○ Potential for shorterprogramme○ Potential for saferconstruction throughsimulation○ Asset tagging & tracking○ Fewer RFI’s
@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your ProjectsOperation &Maintenance○ Fully linked asset informationmodel○ Ability to run scenariosimulation○ Remote access to all virtualrepresentations○ Links to the BMS○ More efficient operation.
@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your ProjectsDemo.Refurbishment○ Modifications use originaldesign criteria○ The ability to simulateproposed changes.○ Full asset information modellisting material volumes andrecyclability○ Deconstruction informationheld within model
@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your Company○ More control, greater QA.○ Easier access to information○ Fewer resources/ more work undertaken.○ Opportunities open to larger projects.But don’t…○ Wait till 2016 and find you’ve missed out on BIM.○ Assume everything you hear is true. Lots of people profess to be ahead ofthe game, whereas the reality is somewhat different.○ Presume that you can buy BIM in a box. It’s not just about software.
@caseyrutlandBIM Sociology - The culture of integrationInvest in your people and treat it like a business tool rather than anadd-on.
@caseyrutlandBIM Tools - They’re not always what you think…“The first rule of any technology used in a business isthat automation applied to an efficient operation willmagnify the efficiency. The second rule is thatautomation applied to an inefficient operation willmagnify the inefficiency”Bill Gates
@caseyrutlandWhat next?...Start now. The first step on a journey is often the hardest. But make thesteps small and manageable projects that work in BIM.Think about the i in BIM and know how information travels in your firm;Who drives it? Where? And why?Seek out as many events as possible. Go to those that seem the best.Surf the Web. Discover your Regional BIM hub.Check what technology you need and who can offer it. Some BIMsoftware is free (some is very expensive).First Steps to BIM Competence A Guide for Specialist Contractors (SEC, NSCC & BIM Academy)
