||Building Information Modeling
Whether you work in the construction industry or are
thinking about building a project, Building Information Modeling (BIM)
is truly revolutionizing the way projects are designed, documented, and
built. Since the beginning, Broadleaf Architecture PC has embraced this
technology and what it has to offer.
As architects, we cannot say enough good things about
Building Information Modeling. It allows us the freedom to
explore complex spaces in three dimensions, examine individual building
components and modify their properties to reflect real world
constraints. Previous to BIM, if we made a change to the
project, that change would "ripple" through the rest of the drawings,
each of which would have to be manually updated to reflect the latest iteration
of the project. Not only is this process extremely tedious
and time consuming, but also increases the potential for costly errors
and mistakes. With BIM technology when a change is made,
the entire model automatically updates itself. This saves us
time, and those savings are passed directly onto the client.
Since we have been using BIM technology long before it
became the latest fad in the construction industry, we have the
experience necessary to educate others about BIM and help them
to integrate it into their own practices. It is exciting to consult
with people about Building Information Modeling, as they bring their
own unique questions, concerns, and comments, which ultimately make us
more proficient at utilizing this technology.
