The future of construction is digital. And (Building Information Modeling) BIM is the driving force of this digital transformation in the U.S. Architecture, Engineering, Construction (AEC) industry.
According to recent research the Global Building Information Modelling (BIM) Market, is expected to reach 4210 million USD by 2024.
Major challenges for many companies include cost and time constraints, lack of skilled professionals who have a holistic understanding of BIM, and the required infrastructure and technology for these services. When in-house services become unmanageable, it makes sense to consider outsourcing BIM services, particularly the development of Revit models and creating Revit families.
In an analysis of 252 general contracting firms, 45% of responding companies have outsourced BIM, thus signifying that outsourcing has become an important facet of BIM implementation. Still unsure? Review the following compelling benefits of outsourcing BIM services today:
1. Reduced Costs and Mitigated Risks
Outsourcing BIM offers you improved ROI with reduced and controlled operating costs. It gives you the ability to use BIM services only when needed, rather than invest in building an in-house team. This ensures that you are better equipped to scale in instances of sudden hikes in demand. Reducing operational costs allows you to save money on office space, furniture, tools, and employee benefits. With regular daily meetings, online project management tools, and well-established guidelines, an outsourced team of highly trained specialist engineers gives you a clear picture of where they are headed as well as an assurance that the project is viable and achievable. This helps mitigate risks by dealing with any potential red flags early on.
2. Increased Productivity
Outsourcing BIM gives you access to high-quality services by vetted teams of specialists who are best at what they do. This allows you to focus on core competencies. Outsourcing allows you the opportunity, often at lower costs, to choose from a vetted global talent pool and compensate for any lack of sufficient BIM professionals in your local area. This helps you overcome the challenges of delivering BIM projects within tight deadlines, limited workforce, and operational complexity. The outsourced team is regularly trained and monitored to deliver better productivity.
3. Better Collaboration and Communication
Proper communication tools, and established workflow, allow you to outsource with confidence. The right offshore partner can be an efficient and trustworthy ally of growth. Offshore organizations often use the most advanced software to provide better collaboration, ensuring that clients have well-coordinated designs. This reduces uncertainty and saves time and effort.
Outsourcing BIM and Revit drawings helps improve the process, quality, and communication needs of a building project. It enhances efficiency, accuracy, speed, and reduction. This enables collaboration and communication.
4. Faster Turnaround Times
Outsourcing BIM component creation services in different time zones ensures fast turnaround times. Your offshore partner can offer 24×7 services based on the country’s unique geographic location, therefore leveraging time zone differences. Moreover, a team of highly experienced engineers who have successfully executed BIM for AV projects, uses cutting edge technology to deliver quick turnaround times. In addition, a dedicated quality control manager, tasked with analyzing BIM component creation, can ensure both accuracy and design consistency.
