McGraw-Hill BIM Report | Project Delivery Systems


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.

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.
