The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has long been a proponent of Building Information Modeling (BIM). In 2010, VA issued its Building Information Lifecycle Vision or “BIM Guide” stating its commitment to move the organization and its service providers to BIM “as effectively and efficiently as possible”.
Has your agency or organization’s AEC project taken Building Information Modeling (BIM) to the next level? Now’s your chance to showcase your innovation with your peers via the Autodesk 2017 AEC Excellence Awards.
You can enter up to five projects among four categories: Infrastructure, Building, Construction, and Sustainability.
The use of BIM for infrastructure in the U.S. is well on the way to becoming established for transportation projects. These are the findings of a new SmartMarket Report – The Business Value of BIM for Infrastructure – from Dodge Data & Analytics and DLT partner, Autodesk.
For infrastructure and transportation civil engineers and designers, the new releases incorporate feedback from users and stress better economics, practicality, resiliency and attractiveness in the conception, design and construction of road, highway, bridge, land, and other infrastructure projects.
The revitalization of U.S. infrastructure is once again a hot topic as the new White House administration pledges to invest in the nation’s roads, bridges and airports. Politics aside, it’s a timely imperative. Once again, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has ranked U.S. infrastructure at a D+ grading.
It’s no surprise that the practice of designing, building, and operating public sector buildings and infrastructure must change. As our built environments become increasingly complex, it’s vital that project team productivity and asset performance levels are addressed. According to KPMG, just a quarter of construction projects in the last three years came within 10% of their original deadlines.
Despite mandates, BIM adoption in government has lagged its private sector counterparts. However, new data shows that BIM is poised for greater adoption across agency design and construction projects, as well as into building operations.
