3 Post Pandemic BIM Trends to Consider for Your Project

Do you know the Top 3 post-pandemic BIM Trends to consider for your project? Read this blog to know in detail here.

Predicting BIM trends is a tricky task in normal times looking towards the recovery from a global health pandemic.

However, all organizations within the construction, real estate, and facilities management industries should be doing this and considering how to improve their current use of project processes, building information, and collaboration to maintain a competitive edge as we look towards a period of recovery I the future.


Here Are Some Of Our Predictions At Cresire:

Space Planning Simulation

Cresire anticipates that there will be a growing need to use simulations for better space and movement planning in public. As well as in commercial buildings as societies return to these places.

During the pandemic, our consultants have visited many beautifully designed offices. They have had their aesthetics and their people movements compromised by hasty retrospective changes. Also, for routes and layouts to accommodate social distancing and safe access.

It is time for existing space and movement techniques to be updated to not only use our existing understanding of how people use buildings but to exploit 3D BIM Modelling, simulations, and automation to explore how a space can function in a variety of future scenarios.

Using 4D BIM For Better Construction Phase Planning

Enhanced scheduling enabled by 4D BIM will become a necessity on projects. Most commentators are expecting a surge in new construction activity over the next 18 months; following delays and false starts in both the construction and pre-construction phases of projects during the pandemic.

This in turn will lead to increased competition for supplier availability throughout the supply chain. We are already seeing the advantage that using BIM for accurate quantity take-off is giving contractors a good level of building information modeling maturity during the shortage of some materials in the UK.

As sub-contractors become busy, using 4D BIM to accurately predict when they are required on-site will contribute to preventing delays caused by supplier availability. one of our key BIM trends will be the increase in the number and breadth of organizations taking advantage of this.

Dispersed Teams

Increased prevalence of remote working is the biggest personal change to working patterns that many of us would have experienced.

Whilst the merit of leaving behind the office sparks heated and valid debates, two things are fairly certain:

  1. It will likely continue for an increased number of professionals in some capacity
  2. Many organizations that did not have a history of remote teams have discovered that it can work well as part of a blended strategy. For those organizations who are embracing remote working for the first time, this presents a massive opportunity both. First in the way that they work and second the projects they can involve with.

Companies with a newfound interest in remote and digital collaboration tools have placed well. They take an opportunity of using building information modeling and embedding this in their business as usual.

Companies with increasing confidence in using remote teams are also now finding that their resource pool has hugely expanded. So they can effectively engage skilled team members and consultants from across the globe. The recent evolution of BS / PAS 1192 1192 to ISO 19650 means that collaborations between international teams are clearly defined and we think that more international teams will be one of the key BIM trends over the next 18 months.
