The BIM to Field Alliance was founded in order to provide architects, engineers, contractors, sub-contractors, and building owners a comprehensive, trustworthy, and collaborative single-source for information regarding the notion of extending BIM data to the field.

3D Modeling: What it really means to developers

Managing risk has now become easier

Most people have heard of 3D Modelling and Building Information Modelling (BIM) but far fewer understand that these tools transform the development process and substantially reduce risk.

Currently, to put a development together, you have to coordinate with many different people and efficiently process large amounts of information. As this information travels through the development process it is often replicated, resulting in inefficient workflow and the need for large contingencies. We have all worked on new and exciting projects which turn out to be a frustrating pain due to poor documentation.

Now 3D Modelling creates a whole new approach whereby everyone works together to create a virtual mock-up of the development. This mock-up contains as much information as possible and any changes to the Read More >
