Discrepancies in construction delivery methods and contracts lead to the failure of BIM. It is time to rethink the contractual context for the BIM-enabled projects. Peter Cholakis, Chief Marketing Officer at 4Clicks Solutions shares industry insights.
Computers and technology have so far been used in the BIM industry. Recent developments have put forth the myriad advantages of modeling not only the graphical aspect but also the non-graphical aspect of building design life cycle.
The architecture profession in currently facing at least three important transformations: the integrated practice, the re-emergence of sustainable design, and building information modeling.
Building and construction have a great effect on the environment. In the United States, buildings alone account for 40-49% energy consumption, 25% of water consumption, 70% of total energy consumption and 38% of total carbon dioxide emissions.
With the advancement in technology and software, it is possible now to evaluate the energy performance of a building at early stage of building designing process. Let’s design a blueprint for green tomorrow green where we and our generation would inhale fresh air!
In the recent times, there has been a cumulative feeling that people are increasingly getting isolated. In more ways than one, the factor responsible for this has been accounted to the way we live, or more precisely the structures that we live in.
