(Building Design & Construction, David Barista – March 31, 2014)Consistency throughout the design and documentation phase is vital to the success of reducing waste. Mapping the process reduces waste effectively and efficiently. A more organized mapping of the design can identify the amount of materials needed, time needed for scheduling, and cost of each phase of the building project. BIM improves sustainable construction performance. How BIM can increase savingsConstruction budgets are targeted and confirmed to be the largest contributor of any building project costs. It is expected that these savings are generally achievable during
the construction phase, not post-occupancy. An emphasis on the usage of BIM defining the entire process of the construction phase, ensures greater collaboration, as a result of increased savings. Measurable performance in increasing savings can be achieved by tighter information flow with project designs before construction phase begins. Consistent collaboration between contractors, suppliers and consultants increases clear concise communication for what is needed and specifies any changes and the expected cost.
