Yes. The technology is widely used across the US in the construction industry.

What is the main advantage of implementation of BIM?

The major advantages are;

  • Two level construction – virtual & physical
  • Early clash detection during pre-implementation stage
  • Ability to undertake pre-emptive measures for clash
  • Less variation order caused by coordination error
  • Highly efficient and better quality output
  • Execution at site with minimal coordination errors and corrections
