BIM and Digital Transformation, a vital strategic subject for companies for 5 years.

The building sector remains little impacted by the digital transition, despite a significant economic weight in France. The lack of appropriation of BIM by players in the sector illustrates this.

BIM is a process of combining information and technology to create a digital representation of a project that integrates data from a variety of sources and progresses alongside the actual project throughout the life of the project. that is to say during its design, its production and the exploitation of operational information. This is a major challenge, to maintain the competitiveness of companies. Before, we bought management, plan creation or accounting software that we put on our servers. Now everything is on the cloud and we subscribe to services. Advantages : Savings: The real use of BIM is not design or construction, it is operation. This is where the costs and value of a building are found. Design-build BIM is not an end in itself. It is a tool, and it is of no interest if it does not continue at the operational level. The visible part of BIM that goes "wow!" » it’s 3D; but the subject is the database. Everything that has been put in place in recent years in terms of design-build digitization will be used in the years to come. It is important to invest in this second phase of BIM, in operation and maintenance, because 75% of the costs of a building relate to operation. Studies have shown that we could save 25% in maintenance by using BIM

The reliability of your information will be improved because you will be working with digital data and techniques, whether in the office or on the construction site, Better assessment and faster decision-making because BIM also allows you to test and validate data much faster than with traditional processes. Analyze and optimize energy consumption. High occupancy buildings and current infrastructure are expensive to operate, especially when gas and electricity prices rise. In the case of a built asset, the main savings you can realize are not in design fees or construction costs, but in operating the asset at the operational stage of its life cycle. With the most significant cost being energy consumption, BIM is extremely beneficial as it can model carbon, heating, and environmental strategy and experiment with multiple options. Maintain and manage built assets by transforming your 2D and 3D plans into Revit BIM files. Another approach to data model design is to consider the need to integrate all information into the digital representation of the physical asset, such that its management and maintenance can be ensured over the long term. Focus on the outputs and the information you will need later on during the life of the project. For the construction of a building, the 40 boxes filled with plans and duplicates are over: what is needed is a digital model integrating data and clear information on supplies. Companies such as TM Facility can transform your 2D and 3D plans into Revit BIM files.

Keeping up with technological progress:

Ultimately, the construction industry is undergoing upheaval related to innovation and new business methods. Pretty soon, the buildings and projects you work on will be more connected than they are now. Do you know smart cities? BIM is one of the main sources of the integrated digital information that is needed to achieve a globally connected world. With the proliferation of smart sensors and the advent of the so-called Internet of Things, your understanding of how people actually use the built environment (and your own projects) will advance beyond anything. what you could have imagined so far.

The use of BIM necessarily requires equipping yourself with high-performance computer equipment and acquiring software that allows you to export in "IfC" format, the open standard of BIM. However, it is difficult for many VSEs/SMEs to invest in this type of equipment from a financial point of view. Moreover, they do not always have trained staff.

Hence the interest of working with companies specializing in this field, and which will deal with the entire work management environment in BIM and CAD. - These companies must manage: - Inventory management - General services management - Wealth management - Key management - Vehicle fleet management TMFacility completely manages all this work, these products have already been transformed into digital and are deployed on the Cloud in SAAS mode. This IT asset management software allows you to inventory your IT and non-IT assets and track details throughout their lifecycle. The essential features - Management of the history of all your assets, hardware and software, throughout their life cycle. - ITSM Service Land enabling incident, problem and change management, to help you track all tickets associated with your assets. - Automatic identification of all assets and schedule regular scans to update them. - Management of the life cycle of assets in all phases whether it is provisioning, maintenance, depreciation or deletion by a dynamic workflow engine.
