What is BIM technology?

BIM (Building Information Modeling) technology is a digital approach to the design and management of construction projects. It involves the creation and use of intelligent three-dimensional models that contain detailed information about all aspects of a building or structure, including its geometry, materials, components, and spatial relationships. These BIM models serve as a centralized database shared by all professionals involved in the project, from architects and engineers to builders and owners, where the finalized project can be visualized in 3D.

In short, BIM technology makes construction easier, more efficient, and more precise by providing the power to have reliable data for decision-making and avoiding setbacks before project begins. In addition to saving time and money, this engineering allows for maximizing efficiency, safety, and sustainability, as it can also help manage and facilitate maintenance of the building once it’s completed.

Why use this technology?

Firstly, BIM technology provides you with precise and accurate data to help you choose the right hoisting equipment at all times: from dimensions to features, including lighting patterns, lifting points, and safety zones, among others.

Moreover, it enables closer and more effective collaboration among project teams, as everyone works on the same digital model updated in real-time. In other words, it offers an integrated and collaborative way to plan, design, build, and manage construction projects, resulting in increased efficiency and quality throughout the project lifecycle.

It also facilitates early detection of design errors, preventing task repetition and additional costs during construction, leading to shorter delivery times.

5 advantages of BIM

BIM technology offers a range of significant advantages for the construction sector:

  1. Detailed 3D view: It allows for creating detailed 3D digital models of buildings and structures, providing a visual representation of how the finished project will look. This aids in better understanding the design and visualizing the outcome before construction begins.
  2. Enhanced collaboration: BIM facilitates collaboration among different teams involved in a project, as everyone can access the same centralized information model. This fosters smoother communication and quicker resolution of potential issues.
  3. Early conflict detection: It prevents task duplication and additional costs, as workers can identify and address potential problems in the digital model, executing it flawlessly without design errors before construction.
  4. Energy performance optimization and sustainability: BIM enables simulating the energy performance of a building throughout its lifecycle, helping designers make decisions that improve energy efficiency and project sustainability.
  5. Asset management and maintenance: It provides detailed information about the building’s components and systems, easing maintenance operations and future renovations.

What does BIM technology bring to our customers?

BIM technology provides significant benefits: first of all, our customers can easily integrate our lifting equipment into the digital models of their projects, giving them the ability to represent the different rack and pinion hoists required in various locations and stages of construction. This enables better planning based on their needs. This not only facilitates decision-making for our customers, but also helps ensure proper installation and efficient operation of vertical transportation solutions.

Furthermore, this engineering allows us to offer value-added service by providing detailed data on the performance and specifications of our construction hoists and mast climbers, ensuring a smoother and more successful construction experience. Our customers can tailor their design and project configuration accordingly.
