Why BIM?

How Does BIM Impact A Project?

  • On average, MEP RFIs reduce by more than 70% during construction.
  • Project-wide RFIs reduced by 52% when the entire team coordinates in BIM.
  • Change orders are reduced by over 45% and the average cost of a change order if it occurs is reduced by 55%.
  • System deficiencies are also decreased by more than 55%.
  • By not having to build in extra funds for the unknowns, subcontractors’ pricing is reduced by about 15%.
  • Studies such as Avanti have shown potential efficiency savings of up to 20-25% on project cost and 40% on project time from working in a full BIM environment. These savings can be attributed to:
  • The ability to find accurate data faster, in a single shared space.
  • The ability to make decisions on that data that are right from the get-go.
  • Accurately co-ordinated information at the pre-construction stage, avoiding costly on-site rework

Did You Know?

  • Construction is one of the largest consumers of GDP in the world.
  • Studies made in Great Britain and the U.S. suggest that out of every dollar spent on construction 35% of that money is wasted. For the U.S. construction industry, that translates to about $140B per year, or roughly 8 times the amount architects, engineers and designers are paid to design buildings.
  • Architectural and engineering construction drawings contain over 25% more information than is actually needed. That translates to one day off of work every week.
