Scott Adams Discuss Ways to Improve Project Efficiencies with BIM

Dearborn, MI - Ghafari Associates Director of Virtual Design + Construction was featured in an article by USGlass News Network highlighting key points from a recent webinar hosted by Engineering News-Recording.
In this webinar, called “Leveraging BIM and Virtual Reality for Project Efficiencies”, Adams discussed some of the ways building information modeling (BIM) is still being underused in the AEC industry.

“BIM is not just a 3D software. One of the goals of BIM is to make it easier to illustrate models, but using it only for the 3D aspects is not taking full advantage of its abilities,” he said. “It’s also not just a production tool; that process doesn’t happen overnight. Using BIM should bring value to all parties throughout the life cycle of the project.”

“If you’re not putting intelligence into BIM, you’re not going to get the value and efficiencies you want,” he continued. “You should have teams study what they can bring to the project through different BIM systems and how to leverage them so the system will stay in place long term.”
