Momentum for BIM is Building in the Middle East!




Owners are demanding BIM.  Soon they will realize they need IPD to get the kind of BIM they want.  The article excerpted and linked below, published in Construction Weekly and in the BIM Journal, hints at the need for IPD  Collaborative Construction's IPD & BIM Solutions series is the perfect mechanism whereby institutional owners can introduce their built industry partners to IPD, BIM and lean processes.

Ultimately, owners need to invest the time and energy required to revamp their procurement programs if the want fully BIM enabled infrastructure.  Again, Collaborative Construction is working on a solution.  Our Integrated Procurement Program, which is a natural outgrowth of the IPD & BIM Solutions series, helps owners assess the scope and nature of the legal framework required to procure BIM enabled infrastructure, and, more importantly, begin to put such a legal framework in place.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is changing the way projects are conceptualized, designed and built. With the recent developments in hardware technologies and the emergence of cloud based computing, BIM adoption is gathering pace, as owners, developer, designers, contractors, operators and others in the construction industry look to capitalize on the benefits of using BIM.
Owners are now mandating BIM on projects and though the construction industry is equipping itself with the necessary skills to adhere to BIM requirements, the immediate reaction is that implementing BIM would be costly, outweighing the benefits. Designers add on the cost of building BIM that they need for their design processes, while contractors ask for added funds to recreate models from 2D or 3D models to meet their functional requirements.


Tahir Sharif, founder of the BIM Journal and buildingSMART ME authored the article and has 20+ years of experience as a consultant and innovator in the built industry.

Read the whole thing.

If you know an institutional owner, public or private, that is contemplating a BIM requirement please have them call.
