A Descriptive Study on Potential and Benefits of Building Information Modeling (BIM)


All countries’ principal source of revenue is the building industry. The building project is growing more sophisticated and difficult to oversee. This is because the construction project involves many different parties, including consulting companies, architects, engineers, building surveyors, and quantity surveyors, to mention a few. The latest technology in use in the construction industry is AutoCAD (automated computer-aided design). AutoCAD is a commercial software application for 2D and 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and drawing developed by Autodesk. In general, all AutoCAD drawing designs will be exchanged among stakeholders on paper. They convey the majority of their data in the form of papers and drawings. Because most papers and drawings are in a paper-based format that isn’t well-managed, this strategy leads to mistakes and confusion. Because one of the most important construction components in a construction project is information, having erroneous information during the building process might stymie project completion. BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a contemporary software technique used in the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) sectors to ensure that everyone has access to the same data. The programme will generate a model that contains all of the data required to support the building’s development, fabrication, and procurement processes. This article will explore the potential and advantages of BIM during the pre-construction, construction, and post-construction stages. The fundamental distinction between CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) is that the former generates a 2D design with a plotted system, while the latter generates a separate building plan.
