BIM (Building Information Modeling) implementation as a service offering to architects is the process of helping architecture firms adopt and integrate BIM technology into their design and construction processes. This service offering typically involves the following steps:
Assessment: The service provider performs a comprehensive assessment of the architecture firm’s current design processes, workflows, and technology infrastructure to determine the best approach for implementing BIM.
BIM strategy development: Based on the assessment results, the service provider develops a customised BIM strategy for the architecture firm, including recommendations for hardware and software upgrades, process improvements, and training needs.
Software implementation: The service provider helps the architecture firm implement the BIM software, including installation, configuration, and integration with other design and project management tools.
Training and support: The service provider provides training and support to ensure that the architecture firm’s staff are able to effectively use BIM technology. This may include hands-on training, online resources, and ongoing technical support.
Continuous improvement: The service provider works with the architecture firm to continuously improve the BIM implementation, making changes and recommendations as needed to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
BIM implementation as a service offering provides architecture firms with a comprehensive solution for adopting BIM technology, enabling them to streamline their design processes, improve collaboration and communication, and deliver higher-quality designs. With this service offering, architecture firms can focus on their core competencies and let the service provider handle the technical aspects of BIM implementation.
