From Tactical Information Coordination to Building Information Modeling: The Essence of Communication

by Kristopher Welshman, VP of Operations and BIM Coordinator As an Operations Specialist in the Navy, I served as a Tactical Information Coordinator (TIC), a role that involved orchestrating and prioritizing the flow of tactical information. Now, as the VP of Operations at Smarcon, I find myself immersed in the world of Building Information [...]

What is the Smarcon BIM360 HUB?

What is the Smarcon BIM360 HUB? Smarcon BIM360 HUB is a process supported by various tools, technologies and contracts involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. Building information models (BIMs) are computer files (often but not always in proprietary formats and containing proprietary data) which can be [...]

Types of 3D BIM Clash Detection

Material wastage and rework can contribute from 7.25 to 35% of the total project cost and can also shoot up the construction time. BIM clash detection tools can find, examine and report clashes from 3D models that are made by integrating different disciplines into a single platform. Finding and solving clashes at the initial [...]

How is BIM Used in Construction?

If you’re in the AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) industry, then you’ve doubtless heard people rant and rave about the benefits of Building Information Management, more commonly called BIM. While it may appear to be similar to other 3D modeling software that has been used in construction for some time now, BIM is more than [...]

A Few Benefits Of 3D BIM Visualization 

3D BIM visualization could be the solution to review various design elements for your building construction project. It allows all the stakeholders to share project images and find errors right in the early stages of the project. The visualization capabilities of 3D BIM allow the participants of a project to not only view the building [...]
