Why Should M/E/P Design Firms Be Using BIM?
Presented by: Robert Bell, Sparling
Recorded:       February 24, 2010
Length:           90 minutes

M/E/P design firms face a growing challenge in 2010 and beyond, as owners increasingly expect bids built on Building Information Modeling (BIM), and design firms worldwide tout their BIM capabilities.

M/E/P design firms, however, have not jumped on the BIM bandwagon as rapidly as other sectors of the construction industry. This seminar discusses the reasons why implementation of BIM has lagged for M/E/P firms and the reasons why M/E/P firms should be moving forward in their BIM implementation.

BIM is not just about a 3D model of a building. BIM is the process of adding information to the model. It involves adding enough data to the model that the designers, contractors, and owners can understand how the building will perform and be maintained. This presents a change to the M/E/P design process. Designers must now add more data to the model than they were accustomed in the CAD process & and at a time when the economy, and other forces, have caused a downward pressure on design fees.

This timely online seminar will answer critical questions on BIM and its adoption by M/E/P firms, including:

  • What is the promise of BIM?
  • What is the reality for M/E/P design firms?
  • What are the challenges facing M/E/P design firms when implementing BIM?
  • What is BIM going to "cost" an M/E/P design firm?
  • How does BIM change the design process?
  • Is now the time to implement BIM?
  • Is there a "next level" for M/E/P design firms and BIM?
