Future of Building Information Modelling

BIM Future

BIM Future is expected to change widely through the next era. The BIM revolution started 17 years ago when Revit made its debut in the digital and construction markets, which then catalyzed a change in how collaboration in the construction industry works.

Moreover, the past five years, we have seen the speed of app developments geared around the disruption of the construction sector. Multiple companies have been brewing up project management software with BIM integration capabilities trying to get a slice of the construction tech pie. The history of BIM has been leading up to this ultimate point of a new construction era and that the Urban Developer’s 2012 predictions regarding the future of BIM have been recently actualized.

Both construction companies and clients will save money. Private and government efforts have been saving money since using BIM or BIM-related technologies as evidenced by studies and programs implemented in the years 2010-2011. A specific example would be the UK’s Construction Strategy in 2011. Their targeted savings of 15-20% has been achieved and reported in 2015. The savings came from the construction budget that was directly affected by and measured with BIM use.
