McGraw-Hill Construction Business Value of BIM for Owners Report

Facility owners currently using BIM, plan to actively increase their use of BIM on more than three quarters of their projects over the next two years.

Top BIM benefits perceived by owners include:

Excerpt: As owners expand their BIM involvement, there is a growing need for them to understand how best to enable their project teams to provide them with he greatest BIM value. In other words, what makes a good "BIM owner"? Several experienced AEC firms offer perspectives on that question.

Excerpt: Owners who adopt BIM for facilities management are viewing numerous potential benefits, but they face a range of cultural and technological challenges along the way. In order to achieve integration, are pursuing a variety of these strategies.

Skanska Revit-MEP Prefabrication | New Assembly Line Efficiency

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 6, 2016 3:30:00 PM

Similar to Henry Ford's revolutionary assembly line processes; BIM processes are reshaping the MEP design and construction (manufacturing) processes for facility projects.

Ford's automated automobile assembly-line process; reduced labor time & costs, while reducing material waste with modular, standardized parts.

Sheer production of the Model T dramatically increased. The production time for a single car dropped from over twelve hours to just 93 minutes due to the introduction of the assembly line.

Skanska Construction's BIM MEP Prefabrication construction processes are highlighted online via Tradeline with an insightful, visual article;

Several maturing, project delivery processes are integrated to produce more efficient, 'manufacturing-oriented' design and construction processes.

5 Evolving Roles as BIM Project Partner | Bradley BIM Initiative

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 4, 2016 3:16:00 PM

The Bradley BIM Initiative (founded in 2009) achieved five (5) new milestones for serving architects, engineers, contractors and facility owners using BIM processes and Revit. In 2014, Bradley BIM expanded its roles into these five (5) processes:

1) BIM for MEP General Contractor (GC) Prefabrication

2) Revit Content Interoperability (Bentley)

3) Revit Model Data Standards

4) Design-Build | Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) with an Expanded Digital Toolset

5) Revit As-built Model | General Contractor Collaboration

1) BIM for MEP General Contractor (GC) Prefabrication

In late 2013, I visited several BIM-based MEP GC fabricators; that were using Bradley TMV and re-circulation stations models in their CADmep plumbing fabrications. One firm was constructing one of the nation's largest corporate facility projects. Throughout 2014, we confirmed national MEP GC\Fabricators using Bradley Revit models.

In early 2015, Bradley TMV, re-circulation mixing stations, dialysis boxes and shower valve Revit models will be configured & available --to serve both SysQue (Revit) and CADmep (AutoCAD) for plumbing fabrication clients.

Bradley BIM for MEP Prefabrication

The Bradley BIM Initiative has partnered with SysQue to provide “prefabrication-ready” Bradley product BIM files for both both;

  • SysQue (Revit MEP format \ RFA) and
  • Autodesk Fabrication (AutoCAD format \ DWG-ITM).

This includes Bradley TMV, re-circulation mixing stations, dialysis boxes and shower valve models will are configured to serve both;

  • SysQue (Revit) [AHR Booth #5187]and
  • CADmep (AutoCAD) [AHR Booth #5325] for plumbing fabrication clients.
