Dewan recognizes the direction our industry is taking with building information modeling to be the future go to software and has begun its transformation into BIM. Slowly standards and client requirements are beginning to lean towards this direction therefore Dewan expects to be fully transformed by the 3rd quarter of 2016. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process that begins with creating an intelligent 3D design model and then uses that model to facilitate coordination, simulation and visualization, as well as helping owners and service providers improve how buildings and infrastructure are planned, designed, built and managed.
"Just Like Moving From Drawing Boards to 2D CAD"
Phase 1 : Evaluation / Assessment
Reviewing the capabilities in terms of technology and personnel, checking the openness of staff to embrace a complete change.
Phase 2 : Preparation for the Transition
This step is a crucial step, it will cover Software Interoperability & provision for a uniform standard for information exchange among all parties, Training and develop-ment sessions in using BIM to its full potential.
Phase 3 : Execution of Plan
The execution of plan will be decided in accordance with every stakeholder in the proj-ect. this phase will define the social interactions of the project team through the BIM life cycle.
Phase 4 : BIM Live Projects
With the groundwork done, it’s time to pick a project. it is a one component of a well-thought-out BIM implementation plan.
- Early analysis of various design options to see the best value and maintaining the most sustainable solution
- Cost effective designs produced using the latest modeling techniques and tools
- Project delivery timeline is reduced as the models are used to review the most appropriate construction methods
- Design data can be compared to operational data with subsequent corrections to keep the operational costs as low as possible
- Decreased Cost
- Clash Detection
- Increase Accuracy
