Examples on the use of BIM processes to enhance construction worker & site safety are highlighted by contractors in the report.

BIM provides the value of visually simulating construction safety situations. Turner Construction and Skanska Construction discuss their use of BIM for Safety in two separate areas of this 50-page report:

1) Emerging Uses of Technology to Advance Safety

The continued adoption of digital tools such as Building information Modeling (BIM), has prompted some construction firms to explore the potential uses of these tools for safety planning and training. 

  1. Site Safety Plans  
  2. Code Checking 
  3. Safety Planning, Training and Evaluation

2) Wearable Devices and Onsite Safety

Technologies that attach to—or are incorporated in—standard safety equipment such as vests and helmets can be part of a system that warns workers and/or supervisors when risks arise and can also provide data for analysis after incidents occur. 

  1. Identifying Worker Skills,
  2. Training and Locations 
  3. Warning Systems Augmented and Virtual Reality

Additional McGraw-Hill SmartMarket BIM Reports reference the use of BIM for Safety and are available for free download on Bradley BIM Portal.

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.

Mayo Clinic BIM Manager – Project Model Development Specification (MDS) -

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.

Excerpts:

Design-Bid-Build: 38% of architects and 22% of contractors find this to be the best system to reduce project cost.

RSMeans: 2014 Report Indicates 50% of US Projects over $10M use Design-Build

Design-Build: 43% of architects and 50% of contractors find this to be the best system to reduce project schedule, and a higher percentage of owners using this method report projects finishing ahead of schedule than with the other two systems.

Construction Management at Risk: A higher percentage of owners doing projects that employ this system find that their projects that employ this system find that their projects are under budget(33%) and 60% report being very satisfied with the projects they have conducted, which is at least 20 percentage points higher than those using design-bid-build or design-build.

McGraw-Hill BIM Report | Measuring the Impact of BIM on Complex Buildings

BIM Report Contributors: 391 owners, architects, engineers and contractors indicated they had a moderate to high level knowledge on the use of BIM within their organization.

  1. 40 Owners

  2. 183 Architects

  3. 68 Engineers

  4. 100 General Contractors

Excerpts:

However, by 2015, many companies have gained deep experience with the use of BIM. Therefore, we believe the time has come to take the critical next step in the research and to establish the specific level of impact BIM has on 10 types of design and construction activities.

To do so, we asked respondents to quantify the positive impact of BIM for six specific metricsthat could be measured in terms of percentage of improvement. The research focuses specifically on complex projects because they offer the best opportunity to experience the powerful benefits BIM provides.

These 10 Activities of Planning, Design and Construction defined the real Impact of BIM on Key Outcomes for Complex Projects:

  1. BIM Impact on Owner Engagement and Understanding

  2. BIM Impact on Design

  3. BIM Impact on Documentation and Constructability

  4. BIM Impact on Estimating and Bidding

  5. BIM Impact on Construction Phasing and Logistics

  6. BIM Impact on Contractors' Understanding of Design Intent

  7. BIM Impact on Cost Control and Reduction

  8. BIM Impact on Schedule and Project Duration

  9. BIM Impact on Unplanned Changes, Rework and Out-of-Sequence Work

  10. BIM Impact on Labor, Safety and Material Waste

6 Metrics for the Impact of BIM on Complex Projects

BIM Presentation Description:

"How BIM Changes Everything"

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that offers multiple opportunities to automate and better coordinate the construction documents and specifications, from a 3D computer model. BIM authoring software (Revit, Bentley, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks) allow multiple users (disciplines) to work simultaneously in the facility model file during the construction + design processes.

This collaborative workflow uses new tools for programming & project phasing, creating specifications & cost estimates, and prefabrication & commissioning documentation.

Learn how the BIM process is redefining

  1. the project workflow,
  2. team roles & responsibilities,
  3. marketing of services,
  4. contractual BIM deliverables defined by both private & public BIM mandates; with an ongoing requirement for training & professional development.

To achieve the full potential of the new technologies; it is critical to understand how effectively project information is flowing between project team partners, between the jobsite and main office and between systems within the company.

The results of this MHC study of information mobility demonstrate the gains the industry has been making, but they also reveal the critical gaps that must be addressed to support the ongoing shift to a more collaborative approach that is currently taking hold in the industry.
