BIM is much more than an exceptional 3D model-based software. It is a smart solution that provides builders, architects, and construction professionals the insight and knowledge to plan, structure, develop and manage their building projects better. BIM does this though a better visual analysis of the structure that facilitates effective decision making.
BIM demands an exceptional understanding of the process of creating and dealing with all of the data points on a project. The digital depiction of each aspect of the structure depends on this precision of data and empowers the meaningful integration of information and technology.
Of course, a tool so powerful has some complexities inherent to its application. Building Information Modelling, too, has some modern technical aspects which call for some skills and experience to deliver well.
Effective implementation and utilization of BIM technologies and procedures require the attention of BIM professionals. The benefits of hiring an expert BIM Service provider include:
· Improved collaboration and control.
· Improved project quality.
· Faster delivery of projects.
· Reduce wastage of resources.
· Maximum impact from the BIM implementation.
With the dramatic rise in the demand for BIM technology around the globe, the demand for individuals with BIM skills has become significant. Putting such a high-impact team together demands serious attention.
We do consider ourselves among the top shelf of BIM service providers and from that perspective, perhaps, it’s worth taking a look at what the best BIM professionals look like. What characteristics set apart the best BIM professionals?
Of course, the first requirement is to be an absolute expert on the software tool itself. These professionals must live, breathe, and talk BIM. They must know how to make things happen by harnessing the awesome power of the chosen software tool. But there’s more than technical skill involved here. This post is about those other essentials.
This isn’t a set of guidelines for recruiting, more a set of qualities one must look for in individuals who can best leverage the powerful toolset to provide meaningful data to project teams. As it happens, these also suggest parameters that could be vital in your decision of a trustworthy and skilled BIM solution provider.
1. Great Communicators: The BIM team plays an essential role in every construction phase involving multiple construction teams. It is important to communicate the information the framework delivers effectively. Consequently, communication is a huge factor in making a capable BIM professional. The ideal BIM professional would be acquainted with the business prerequisites and with the capabilities of the partner teams. It’s possible that BIM may be new for the onsite team so when a project executive approaches for something, the team should be able to translate that request into the data that is needed. Team members who can read between the lines and interpret those requirements back again are invaluable.
2. Flexibility: Different time zones, project types, and plans of action must be considered in the equation. The BIM professional is often required to work offsite and yet be a core part of the onsite team. This suggests the true BIM professional must be flexible to adjust to the necessary business structure, schedules, and procedures. They must also be familiar with a range of requirements and be flexible in their delivery.
3. Quality-Obsessed: So much depends on the BIM model. The construction planning, that determines how the project goes, is heavily dependent on the model. Equipment schedules, material orders, resource planning, and, even, post-construction facilities management rely on the BIM model. Having a quality driven team makes it possible to get the model right the first time and reduces unnecessary errors and issues. Only if the BIM professional is quality-driven can a strong foundation be built up that will be capable of holding up the entire effort.
4. Ability to Fuel Innovation: BIM demands a combination of high efficiency and an extreme degree of initiative. This is essential for solving complex issues at the required pace. Individuals with diverse skill sets are key, as different problems need different solutions. A wide variety of ideas and viewpoints are necessary to blend together to come up with the best result. There is a need to look beyond the obvious and see visions of the future that may not be immediately apparent. In such a situation. innovation becomes a stock-in-trade for the folks who craft impactful solutions out of the BIM effort.
5. Organized: The task is complex and multi-faceted. The stakeholders are many. The desired impact is high. It is also clear that the consumers of the BIM model are varied and what they seek from the model also varies greatly. Staying focused on the task and delivering what is required demands an extreme level of self-organization. Such an organized approach makes it easy to monitor tasks, deadlines, and priorities and deliver what everyone needs.
BIM is a solution that includes team-members and consumers of information from several unique backgrounds which include builders, architects, engineers, contractors, and so on. A BIM professional who can deliver what each of these stakeholders requires has a special set of skills. The professionals who work on our team share the traits listed here. What characteristics do the BIM experts you have worked with show?
