What used to take me hours now takes me just minutes. I can plan and schedule my job again.
No longer am I searching the web for the right resource, files.construction has all of the documents I need to do my job.
Each of my teams now uses the same documents across their projects - keeps us all on the same page.
We used the checklists to implement a new quality program on my project site. We've reduced our deficiencies on average 25% since launching.
Recent SmartMarket Reports by McGraw Hill Construction (now Dodge Data & Analytics) indicate the business value of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is increasing. The Business Value of BIM in North America: Multi‐Year Trend Analysis and User Ratings (2007‐2012) showed BIM adoption increasing from 17% in 2007 to 71% in 2012, with 62% of respondents among the industry perceiving a positive return on their investment in BIM. The Business Value of BIM for Owners (2014) identified 68% of U.S. Owners surveyed as either requiring or encouraging BIM for their projects. The National Institute of Building Sciences is proud to introduce the National Building Information Modeling Guide for Owners (NBGO), intended to outline for the building Owner how to develop and implement requirements for BIM application in internal policies and procedures as well as in contracts to plan, design, construct, and operate buildings. As BIM adoption in the U.S. continues to rise, the Owner stands to benefit most, by implementing BIM as a tool to maximize a building’s value throughout its lifecycle. BIM potentially facilitates better‐ informed Owner decision‐making, design‐intent communication, project coordination across various phases, enhanced project delivery schedule and budget management, post‐construction asset and facility management, building automation and control, and many other benefits, including increased property resale values of the building, as well as leasing revenues. We authored the NBGO to assist Owners in working with the other members of the building team to maximize the potential of BIM on their projects. We would welcome your comments and feedback as you put the NBGO to work for you.
