The deployment of building information model (BIM) technology is an increasingly popular technique for managing design and construction risk, schedule, and cost. While many offices work to create company standards, the value of BIM lies in the integration of multiple disciplines at the project level, not at the company level. This integration yields improved design documentation, precision analytics including program, cost and operation, and improved construction processes and results.
Company-wide implementations, a form of one-size-fits-all approach, tend to yield sub-optimized results that may in fact reduce overall project performance. Whereas project-led implementations take required integration into account, and better align value to owners with technical constraints at the company level.
At Gehry Technologies (GT) we are seeing project owners who do not simply observe the process, but sponsor comprehensive BIM implementations across design and construction suppliers, resulting in radical performance improvement across the domains of quality, time, and cost.
