BIM collaboration: the key to successful projects

BIM collaboration is an approach that allows the entire team to work together towards a common goal by favoring:

  • access and distribution of project and BIM model information and data;
  • the sharing of information and the exchange of data between all parties involved in the BIM project.

Collaborative technologies in the construction sector are essential for coordinating multidisciplinary project teams, professionals and companies located in different places while working with different software (BIM authoring, BIM tools, etc.).

They offer many advantages, including:

  • usBIM allows you to centralize and share information and models in real-time with all team members.
  • better communication between team members, reducing misunderstandings while ensuring that all team members have access to the same set of data and information.
  • an increase in productivity, with faster project delivery times.
  • better project quality by means of more effective supervision and control of activities and processes throughout its life cycle.

The BIM collaboration software from usBIM adapts to every need, from large projects to medium or small projects.

The software offers many functionalities and technological advantages that make it an absolute reference point for those who want to be part of the digital revolution of the AEC industry (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) brought by online BIM management and OpenBIM workflows.

What is a BIM collaboration platform?

A BIM collaboration platform is a tool that allows multiple users to plan, design, build and operate with the BIM methodology. Using this tool architects, engineers, contractors and owners can:

  • view and manage online files in many formats (IFC, DWG, DXF, PDF, OBJ, SKP, 3DS, RVT, etc.) that reside in the CDE, despite not having a BIM Authoring software;
  • manage users and their permissions to access project data;
  • trace the review/validation processes and the actions taken to ensure quality in BIM processes;
  • correctly manage information at each stage of the construction project life cycle;
  • work together effectively on construction projects;
  • have a single secure data sharing environment that is accessible to each member of the project team.

How does a BIM collaboration platform work?

BIM collaboration platforms work with a cloud-based repository to store project data in a single shared environment, making it accessible anytime, anywhere. These tools, being cloud-based, also do not require expensive installation, maintenance or particular hardware resources.

They are tailor-made for collaboration and information management; this means that there are some key features that BIM collaboration platforms must have such as:

  • access control tools that allow you to manage which users have access to view or edit project data.
  • version control tools to keep track of any changes and return to previous versions if necessary.
  • real-time notifications about changes in the project to update all team members on what is happening to the project.

What are the advantages of a BIM collaboration platform?

BIM collaboration platforms allow for greater collaboration between project stakeholders, providing many benefits for architects, engineers and contractors:

  • Faster decision making - With real-time data available to everyone, you can make decisions faster and easier, assign tasks, and make changes in minutes rather than hours or days.
  • Fewer errors - All team members can see the same information in a single data sharing environment, reducing the risk of errors due to miscommunications.
  • Time and cost savings - Collaborating in real time on the same BIM model and on its documents avoids unnecessary rework allowing you to better manage the project.
