A BIM Future

Like AutoCAD, building information modeling (BIM) is a transformative technology for the building industry. And as AutoCAD far surpassed the capabilities of hand drafting, BIM far surpasses AutoCAD for architecture, engineering, and construction firms because it provides three-dimensional drawings opposed to just two dimensions. Considering that BIM is currently used by a slight majority of firms, what does the future hold for this tool, and what does the A/E/C (Architecture/Engineering/Construction) industry look like when most firms are using BIM? According to the 2021 report, Accelerating Digital Transformation Through BIM SmartMarket Report, a new global study by Dodge Data & Analytics

The State of The Steel Industry

Steel is an essential part of commercial construction, and stability or volatility in pricing can have an outsized effect on the construction industry as a whole. In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently seeing mostly encouraging signs for our sector regarding the steel market.

How BIM Collision Detection Improves Design

Building information modeling (BIM) is a tool for designing buildings and other structures. As the name suggests, it’s a software-driven process whereby we create a highly detailed digital 3D model. This approach is different from and better than CAD because it’s 3D. We can place each component or design element precisely in three dimensions and avoid “collisions” or “clashing.” The Problem of Clashing Clashing happens when different components are set up to be in the same physical location. Usually we mean MEP components—mechanical, electrical, and plumbing. This problem has happened in the past when designers have had only 2D tools
