Architectural services are most useful part of the BIM architectural requirements. BIM architectural services are useful within the construction industry and have been around for a number of years in past till present time.
Within construction industry, BIM offers with numerous services. It is useful the moment designers have to work alongside with architectures and contractors. It is also helpful the moment you have to work along with engineers, builders and contractors. The services are also useful in lowering the cost of production and time of completion of the project.
This is one of the factors that add a lot of value to the project making use of the 2D drafting services. The architectural BIM services offer with capabilities and skills to help project completion on time and most accurately. In present time, the architectural services are making use of the advanced level applications and software for providing with quality architectural services:-
Apart from this Architectural services also offer with works under the various categories including industrial sectors, commercial sectors and residential sectors. Architectural sectors can be used on a much wider scale and for much bigger projects.
Benefits of using BIM for Architectural services
Within the architectural structure designers and engineers can make use of advanced technologies for producing CAD designs, models, drawings, making use of the tools and techniques that are most advanced including Revit structure and Architecture, AutoCAD and ArchiCAD etc.
Various advantages of BIM architectural services may include as below:-
In present time, BIM services are considered as leading services within the construction sector. Within paste few years the services have also managed to gain a lot of exposure and popularity.
BIM in itself is a process that proves helpful in management of functional and physical information related to the project. The output of the service is termed as BIM (Building Information Models) and is available in the form of files in the digital format. It proves helpful in supportive decision taking and project description.
So in simple language, BIM is a type of representation in the digital format for functional and physical characteristics for any project or facility. It is also described as a knowledge resource that is shared amongst clients and service providers alike during the project cycle. It proves helpful in covering various aspects of a project cycle including – building components properties, material quantities, information of geographic, light analysis and spatial relationships.
BIM tools and Objects
BIM makes use of various object combinations – generic, void space, solid shapes, product specific, undefined and vague. Using the BIM design tools, designers are able to extract all set of information for producing a drawing from the model. The tools also integrate different views of the object and define the parameters, such that a small change in one will automatically change all other adjusts.
These changes can be used by clients or firms to work out various other elements including material to be used, cost and material tracking.
Various Dimensions under BIM models
Dimensions are used ot describe each element under the BIM –
Integration of various BIM Dimensions (5Ds) in a 3D output
BIM – Functional characteristics and Physical characteristics Digital format representation. It is helpful in forming accurate basis for making important decisions during the ongoing project cycle. The working of all dimensions can be explained as below:-
Benefits of BIM models
Facility management can be enabled using the 6D models in BIM. It is helpful in adding features that are rich for describing the building (engineering services and elements) along with other elaborative factors (Geometry, property and relationships) to prepare an accurate management database.
Sustainability component is added to the above mentioned components in the 7D model. This set of information proves helpful for designers when preparing project for comparison and test decisions.
Within 8D models you can embed the safety aspects in the project management. This process helps in automating the project cycle. This also helps in improving the construction for overcoming the qualification stage.
