The construction companies are using BIM because the architects can see what the building will look like in its final form and improve the workers' safety.
FREMONT, CA: Technology such as building information modelling (BIM) has become an essential investment for construction companies in recent years to keep workers as safe as possible. BIM is likely to become much more critical to construction site safety as new technology makes building information analysis simpler and more efficient.
The use of BIM in the industry differs marginally from one business to another. Companies across the sector primarily utilize BIM to schedule project logistics and ensure compliance with safety requirements and company policies. It is also used to simplify the construction process, significantly reducing site risks.
The ability of BIM tools to produce 3D visualizations rather than traditional 2D diagrams is also the technology's most important advantage for increasing safety. The 3D visualizations provided by BIM will benefit construction companies like looking into site safety technologies.
When employees are pressed for time due to schedule delays, they may attempt to hurry through rework, and it may lead to cut corners, move rapidly, or disregard safety precautions to reach deadlines. Reducing rework will help to avoid the accidents that come from rushing through building projects.

In general, the sooner you can complete the construction of a building, the less money the companies will have to spend on the overall project.
Additionally, completing a project on time or ahead of schedule accelerates the return on investment by allowing tenants to use the property as soon as possible. Architects may use BIM to design buildings faster and start construction sooner. Enhanced workflow and other efficiencies also increase the speed of the project.
BIM facilitates communication between architects, customers, contractors, and other project stakeholders. Since BIM is built on a "single source of reality" framework, all relevant information, including models, forecasts, and design notes, is distributed and stored in one location. Every individual involved in the project has access to the data and can also make suggestions.
More opportunities for prefabrication and modular construction
BIM software is excellent for developing accurate production models that can be prefabricated off-site. Architects now have more opportunities for developing modular architectures that fit together seamlessly and requires complex tolerance calculations. As a result, contractors will spend less time constructing parts on-site from scratch, saving time and money.
