A very interesting and insightful article written by Donna Laquidara-Carr of Dodge Data & Analytics, shows how contractors up & down the supply chain stand to gain the most from a further commitment to tech.
The latest research from Dodge Data & Analytics on building information modeling (BIM) focuses on mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP), and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) contractors. It reveals that these contractors have embraced BIM and are seeing extraordinary value from its use. However, it also demonstrates that a major challenge for many of these contractors is a lack of commitment to BIM use by other key parties involved in a project.
The study also examines the benefits of having an integrated workflow for structural and MEP systems, which is based on sharing model information throughout design, detailing, fabrication and installation.
Hmmm. sound familiar? As you know, ICT Tracker can help to facilitate the sharing and leveraging of BIM data today!
