SUBJECT: Learn the strategic importance of BIM from experienced professionals and the added value and cost savings that can be achieved for both properties and projects.
BIM is a technology that has much to offer to the real estate world. Despite the many advantages, however, spanning not just through the build process for an asset but also through the entire lifespan of the structure, the real estate industry and those industries close to it are slow to adopt change. Nonetheless, proponents embrace BIM’s technology, graphics, databases and information. BIM creates transparency for project stakeholders, enables waste reduction and improves profitability, and the value of these contributions is not insignificant.
BIM can help the architectural, engineering, construction and real estate industries to maintain a pattern of continuous improvement, especially if its insight can be integrated at both the project and organizational levels. Projections become less risky when the final product is delivered as close as possible to the timing of the market demand and to design specifications. And when changes or problems occur, BIM enables early resolution, thereby minimizing extra cost.
During this conference, we will discuss how BIM can be used to solve problems inherent in construction or renovation projects, as well as those that occur throughout the life of an asset. How BIM is being used in NYC will also be examined, since the City has inherent difficulties and a very unique environment with distinct challenges. In addition, how advanced energy performance can be strategically achieved when BIM is employed will be a focus of the event.
