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.

Revit-BIM Manages Construction Site Assets and Safety

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jun 3, 2016 8:00:00 AM

Several Autodesk University 2014 classes featured contractors sharing their use of BIM to Manage the Construction Site Assets & Safety and BIM for Constructing the Building.

The world’s leading contractors have completely DIGITAL construction sites. The larger the project, the more dependent they are on BIM and digital technologies.

This includes oil & gas exploration and mining; which are long-term construction sites.

Contractors use BIM to Manage the Daily & Weekly Positioning of Construction Site Assets. These models and respective paperwork are reviewed weekly by Site Safety Engineers & submitted to governing agencies.

 --- Download McGraw-Hill Construction Safety Management BIM Report ---

Here are a few KEY business points on how BIM-based Contractors use BIM to

  1. create REPEAT client business

  2. engage their successful Team Members on future projects,

  3. prefabricate MEP systems and room configurations,

  4. plan & phase construction project processes, plan and improve safety,

  5. track, manage & financially plan construction site assets,

  6. order and install their proven Building Product Manufacturers (Supply Chain)

Plumbing_Heating_Cooling_Contractors_PHCC_Bradley_BIM_Article_2014_July

The article outlines at least 2 reasons that Building Information Modeling (BIM) processes; are determining the winners and leaders in both the plumbing design and contracting markets.

(1) BIM Design-Construction Mandates (Public & Private)

(2) BIM’s Core Support for Digital Design, Construction & Maintenance Processes

4 Hours | 2D AutoCAD to Visually Data-Rich Revit Documentation

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Mar 3, 2016 6:50:00 AM

On Thursday night, our facility engineer showed me an as-built AutoCAD sketch for his toilet room renovation project in our Ohio manufacturing facility.

He asked if I could enhance the sketch with Revit for his Tuesday meeting; with the contractor and facility engineers.

Starting Friday morning, it took 4 hours using Revit --to create a fully coordinated set of

  • floor plan,

  • interior sections,

  • interior elevations,

  • reflected ceiling plan,

  • plumbing fixture and washroom accessory schedules,

  • 3D plan and 3D interior views.
