BIM Moves Forward

Construction companies have an arsenal of tools to improve operations both in the office and at the jobsite—and often it all starts at the very beginning, in the model.

The BIM (building information modeling) process is changing how work is done at the job. More often, data is flowing throughout different pieces of the construction project.

Today, there are many options available to improve the BIM process. As one instance, a new enhancement lets contractors now access 2D drawings alongside 3D models.

Assemble Systems has released Assemble Insight. The model, drawings, and associated metadata are all linked together to assist the user in quickly comprehending the design and associated constructability issues. This type of technology can provide big value in the construction industry.

For instance, a software-as-a-service offering saves designers money because they only need one project license for everyone. Also, there is no hardware to purchase and no software to install and manage.

This one example of modeling software innovation—and it will change how work is done in the construction industry in the future.
