Governments and educational institutions are waking up to the potential of BIM technology.
BIM is getting wide acceptance by the Indian construction industry. The awareness is already picking up and we see adoption levels also happening across industries. Now all major private developers and government agencies are pushing for BIM adoption for their projects. BIM gives a digital representation of all aspects of infrastructure and helps construction companies in cutting down on delays in the project. It gives advanced insight into designing buildings and infrastructure. However, the adoption level is in the medium and small-scale projects, but it is time to understand that In any construction project where CAD/computer-based design is being used, BIM can be a very useful tool to streamline the design, project management, and construction processes. In the current challenging times, the role of a BIM manager is evolving and getting bigger with each new project in current times. Now the BIM manager is not only responsible to draft the BIM Implementation Plan (BIP) and BIM Execution Plan (BEP) but also to implement it in compliance with local government guidelines, Employer Information Requirements (EIR), industry standards, and overall design coordination, with better construction quality.
