Author : ARSR Tech | Published On : 12 Aug 2021

One of the most innovative technology solutions that are revolutionizing the AEC industry through Building Information Modeling (BIM). Such sophisticated technologies are helping organizations achieve a higher level of efficiencies when compared to conventional processes.

BIM Modeling solutions not only improve collaboration but also offer 3D, 4D, 5D and even 6D modelling capabilities that are enabling organizations to minimize costs, identify & eliminate bottlenecks, optimize design & construction processes and drive growth. So, what are some exciting BIM trends that you should watch out for in 2021?



3 Exciting BIM Trends to Watch for in 2021

  1. VDC & BIM Design Technology

The construction industry has come a long way from what it originally was. Nowadays, many AEC firms, contractors and construction industry professionals are turning to cut edge technologies like sophisticated software, cloud technology and other innovative solutions to simplify, streamline and accelerate construction projects.

Continuous advancements in technology have brought forth state-of-the-art technological solutions like:

  • Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) – These tools help simplify the entire construction process.
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM) - This cutting-edge software effectively replaced traditional CAD and virtualized the entire designing and drawing process. Not just that, BIM Modeling facilitates excellent collaboration, improved sequencing, better clash detection and cost savings.
  1. Increase in Virtual Offices

While many AEC firms are planning to call their employers and stakeholders back to the physical office there are many other organizations that had to make the hard call of detaching the staff from the office.

So, how can teams connect if they don’t meet physically? Heard of Zoom, Microsoft Teams& Google Meet? Teams and stakeholders can seamlessly leverage these tools to effectively communicate with one another and complete day-to-day tasks with ease.

  1. Increased Use of Cloud Software

Cloud technology is a boon for AEC firms that have already adopted remote working protocols. With cloud technology and applications, stakeholders can seamlessly get hold of real time data related to various BIM models, VDC models and other crucial information. That’s not all! Stakeholders can also collaborate with multiple teams remotely, generate reports and accelerate the entire design and construction process.

These are 3 exciting BIM Trends that will take AEC firms by storm in 2021 and beyond!
