Productivity Benefits of BIM:
How Public and Private Owners Are Driving the Industry
Presented by Finith Jernigan, Author of the first published BIM Book: BIG BIM, little bim, and soon-to-be-released BIG BIM 4.0
Listen to what these attendees had to say about our previous BIM webinars:
"We use BIM in our business but your session brought out information that was helpful to us. I will attend another webinar because BIM is the future in our business. I especially found it very good that you provided links to where we could find additional information on the subject. That is invaluable as time passes."
— Richard Parker
The format was great and easy to follow.
I enjoyed the format very much. Great information. Excellent presenters. Very useful in many ways.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has made major inroads the past couple of years, from competitive advantage to competitive requirement, as owners, and many contractors, understand the major benefits. It's not just improved design and lower costs of construction, it's major savings to building owners in operations and maintenance. And guess what else? Reduced claims, safer projects, and more on-time completion. BIM encourages collaboration and is a win-win for the entire project team — everyone from the architect/engineer, general contractor, trade contractor, construction manager and owner all experience real productivity gains.
In this 90-minute recorded webinar, Finith recaps the value proposition of BIM and how it has evolved since the book was first published in 2007, transforming itself into an indispensable tool not just for the design team, but for contractors and CMs, and as an asset management tool for owners. BIM is also transforming the way we do business, enabling more fluid design-build delivery, with improved construction collaboration resulting in higher quality and safer projects. Finith has developed unique approaches from his 10+ years experience in helping other implement BIM, including:
- Four-phase framework for integrating BIM into existing practice
- Seven steps to guide your way
- Day-to-day processes and expectations, including COBIE
- Future direction
In addition, Finith reviews the most common benefits of BIM: improved code compliance checking, better life safety and energy efficiency design, reduced approval cycles, increased pre-fabrication, less crowded and safer worksites, reduced waste and change orders. Learn more about these and other developments, including:
- Recent progress in standards and cooperation to facilitate increased BIM usage
- How BIM changes the workflow and management processes
- Benefits to owners: an improved product and enhanced facilities management
- AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!
