How manufacturers can collaborate throughout the construction phases
An easy, comprehensive guide to BIM.
Get into the phases of BIM
Would you describe yourself as a manufacturer with a finger on the pulse? Then you’ve probably heard of BIM: Building Information Modeling.
While you might understand that designer adoption is accelerating: do you know what it is? Why it matters for manufacturers? Or how you can collaborate through the phases of a digital building process? If you’re unsure of questions 1, 2, or 3: this comprehensive, easy guide is made for you.
BIM collaboration runs deeper than design
As a manufacturer, you are aware of how important the design phase is for getting your product specified in designs. If not: now you know. But… Building Information Modeling runs far deeper than design. It branches out into every stage of the construction phase and throughout the building’s lifespan. But what are the phases, and why do they matter to you?
This e-book gives you a deeper understanding of:
- Why BIM makes collaboration easier
- What architects, engineers, contractors, and owners need
- How to build a relationship lasting from design to demolition
Cement your place in the construction phases
A building’s designed. It’s built. It’s maintained. And it’s demolished. That’s the concrete picture we tend to paint. But as with all oversimplifications, it strips away the valuable nuances. This e-book gives you, as a manufacturer, a quick understanding of:
- The design phase
- The building phase
- The maintenance phase
And most importantly: How to collaborate through points 1-4.
Your fast-track to BIM
At this point, you might be thinking, “Uh-oh, is this another piece on BIM that’ll leave me with more questions than answers?”. We sympathize – the internet is filled to the brim with BIM complexities.
But don’t worry: this guide doesn’t include overly technical jargon or nitty-gritty details. Just easily digestible information to get you up to speed and get you speaking the same language as architects, engineers, and contractors.
This is your fast-track guide into the BIM basics.
