BIM Strategy Formulation
BIM Strategy helps in the development of AEC business. Pinnacle enables AEC industry to embrace latest BIM technology. Using our expertise and research, we provide training and advisory services to the organizations that are willing to adopt BIM processes within their projects or businesses. Our BIM strategy focuses on the tangible and intangible staff training requirements of organizations. We consider the following elements while formulating a BIM strategy:
- Cost to Benefit Ratio of BIM Strategy Implementation
- Acquisition & Incorporation of New Software within Existing Systems
- Incorporation of BIM Principles into Existing Work Procedures
Cost to Benefit Ratio of BIM Strategy Implementation
We estimate the costs and benefits of implementing BIM carefully, considering both the short term and the long term expenses. Short term costs are associated with upgrading technology and staff training, whereas the long term costs are pertaining to the transition period in which an organization moves from the existing workflow to BIM implementation. Once the transition period is over, BIM becomes an asset for a construction firm, resulting in financial boosts from various angles like waste prevention, time savings, cost savings, energy conservation, improved coordination and better end product. We analyze the ratio between the outgoing costs and cost benefits to figure out which BIM implementation is applicable and evaluate the level of risk associated with it. This helps us modify BIM strategy and make it useful for the short, medium and long terms.
Acquisition & Incorporation of New Software within Existing Systems
Acquiring the right BIM software program is crucial for any BIM strategy. We consider various BIM software programs available online and evaluate them with regard to the software system currently used by an organization. Comparing multiple options with regard to what they are capable of and how they are compatible helps us in developing a BIM strategy prudently.
Incorporation of BIM Principles into Existing Work Procedures
We create BIM strategy combining existing workflow systems with BIM procedures. Our aim is to recognize productive components in existing systems and maintain them in the new system.
BIM Establishing Business Methodology
With every project learning is acquired by the organization and team. Channelizing these learning into a streamlined process for future adoption across organizational structure is a process which forms the core development of a business. Creating set manuals for all employees old and new to follow the practices experienced in prior projects can help in optimizing the desired outcome.
Nowadays, BIM provides real business benefit ranging from ROI calculations, qualitative progression development & enhanced construction project outcomes. Starting from application, and generation of digital models for design, construction & project operation, BIM exchanges project data and communicates ideas seamlessly among team members, facilitating collaborative and integrated design & construction approach. Pinnacle project team members rearrange conventional roles and workflow for better and quicker way of communicating ideas, reducing errors and getting better output. BIM facilitates modeling techniques, combining design, production and operations activities and team members ensure complete and correct information.
Pinnacle Infotech has created a repository of such case studies based on over 4000+ projects executed during last 10+ years. We would be able to create most effective documents for your BIM team for implementation on current and future projects. With the above methodology, there can be significant increase in efficiency and consistency achieved by any organization. Pinnacle Infotech would help in recording the existing business methodology and making upgrades on the same based on new processes to achieve best practices.
Building Data Management in BIM
Building Data Management is now fast in Revit, taking just a fraction of time. Moreover, the modeling and workflow have become fast, easy and accurate in Revit software platform. With Autodesk Revit, Pinnacle Infotech team helps to pull information from one file into Microsoft Excel, driving precise and consequential BIM data back into Revit model with speed, ease and accuracy. Several hours get saved and you can gain unprecedented access to Revit modeling data for improved workflow.
- Accessibility, Analysis & Extraction
- Data Editing in Revit Model
- Best use of Revit & non-Revit users’ time
- Complementing Features of Revit Architecture, Structure & MEP
Opt for building data management service to avoid manual errors & on-site delays and eliminate error-based re-work in Revit Model. BIM opens a safe door for collaboration between Revit & Non-Revit users, letting team members to access modeling data for efficient project management. Choose Building Data Management and improve Revit workflow by stretching project hours, saving time and money.
BIM Reality Capture
The democratization of reality capture gives the potential to change the way of design and engineer buildings. This helps in starting design process with something already present in the real world. Pinnacle Infotech explores reality capture in Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow in architecture, engineering & construction.
3D BIM Services from Pinnacle Infotech provides Reality Capture, Modeling & Prefabricated Construction Solutions for AEC & facility management teams.
