12 RULES FOR A SUCCESSFUL BIM IMPLEMENTATION
Becoming “BIM-ready” isn’t about buying the latest software, training your staff and then flicking the switch, it’s a journey that will require you to look at people, process and your outputs to bring them all together in a meaningful way for all of your collaborative partners.
Companies that successfully integrate Building Information Modelling (BIM) into the strategy, processes, and IT systems of their organizations can establish a business advantage, improve project quality, enhance team collaboration, and potentially expand their services. Companies that have successfully adopted BIM can realize significant savings in project design and delivery costs and schedules, make better-informed decisions at an earlier phase in the design process, and avoid costly errors and rework.
