Digital innovations at Hilti
BIM (Building Information Modelling) is transforming the way projects are designed and managed, enabling greater collaboration between extended project teams working on different areas and stages of the construction process
BIM helps address issues at earlier stages of the process reducing the risk for oversights further down the line. Interruptions such as the availability of materials or tools can cause unnecessary downtime on construction sites, but BIM helps to manage the necessary planning and foresight to combat this. Structured data helps build a functional overview of projects, making sense of multiple sets of data that when used effectively, creates a ‘digital twin’ of the site. This single source of reference supports carrying out construction projects most efficiently, in fact, a recent National BIM Report (2019) finds 60% of construction professionals using BIM has seen improved cost efficiencies.
With intelligent forecasting and prediction through BIM software, you can keep track of everything needed to complete projects successfully from end-to-end. From the design phase, through the construction phase and to building operations and maintenance management.
BIM helps you plan, make informed decisions, generate forecasts, and monitor buildings for repairs and maintenance post-construction. Digital, Cloud-based platforms like BIM are proving invaluable when it comes to the increased need to work remotely in the current climate. For projects that involve individuals from multiple locations, the ability to access data from any location, at any time supports safer working and ensures projects are keeping going. Using advanced digital layout tools like the PLT 300, error-prone two-person tasks of laying out points are transformed into a simple, one-person operation that integrates with BIM data.
Hilti are proud to be supporting large-scale BIM projects and you can find out how we can help your business here.
