Increase the quality and efficiency of constructions
The construction industry is still quite primitive today because until now no one had the ability to challenge decisions upstream. The multiplicity of stakeholders making the project subject to risks of misunderstanding, errors and significant delays, it is not uncommon to see construction projects being delayed, poorly executed or exploding in terms of budget.
Construction suffers from such a bad reputation that the British government itself admits that “construction should not improve its methods of work but change them radically”.
Having a BIM model reduces conflicts, errors and risks of interpretation and promotes optimization of management, decisions and consequently, costs.
In Singapore, the Building and Construction Authority implemented a roadmap in 2010. Objective: 80% of sites using BIM by 2015 and 100% by 2016. With a productivity gain estimated at 25% by 2025.
