The 10 steps BIM implementation for construction and architectural practices

Hello, Hi, Anthony Kamil here. 

As part of my education initiative to educating the industry. I want to create a series of videos that would help and educate companies and individuals to the key elements in BIM Implementation.

Please enjoy these videos, and don't forget to share, like, comment and subscribe to my youtube channel. 

Together we can digitise the construction industry.

What is 6D BIM ?

The construction industry has traditionally been focussed on the upfront capital costs of construction. Shifting this focus to better understand the whole-life cost of assets, where most money is proportionately spent, should make for better decisions upfront in terms of both cost and sustainability. This is where 6D BIM comes in. 
Sometimes referred to as integrated BIM or iBIM, 6D BIM involves the inclusion of information to support facilities management and operation to drive better business outcomes. This data might include information on the manufacturer of a component, its installation date, required maintenance and details of how the item should be configured and operated for optimal performance, energy performance, along with lifespan and decommissioning data.

What is 5D BIM?

The fifth dimension is taking simple 3d geometry and applying the cost element 
Drawing on the components of the information model being able to extract accurate cost information is what's at the heart of 5D BIM. 
Considerations might include capital costs (the costs of purchasing and installing a component), its associated running costs and the cost of renewal/replacement down the line. These calculations can be made on the basis of the data and associated information linked to particular components within the graphical model. This information allows cost managers to easily extrapolate the quantities of a given component on a project, applying rates to those quantities, thereby reaching an overall cost for the development. 
The benefits of a costing approach linked to a model include the ability to easily see costs in 3D form, get notifications when changes are made, and the automatic counting of components/systems attached to a project. However, it's not just cost managers who stand to benefit from considering cost as part of your BIM process. Assuming the presence of 4D programme data and a clear understanding of the value of a contract, you can easily track predicted and actual spend over the course of a project. This allows for regular cost reporting and budgeting to ensure efficiencies are realised and the project itself stays within budget tolerances.

What is 4D BIM?

They always ask. What is construction sequencing? what is 4D?

Here is your answer.
4D BIM adds an extra dimension of information to a project information model in the form of scheduling data. This data is added to components which will build in detail as the project progresses. This information can be used to obtain accurate programme information and visualisations showing how your project will develop sequentially. 
Time-related information for a particular element might include information on lead time, how long it takes to install/construct, the time needed to become operational/harden/cure, the sequence in which components should be installed, and dependencies on other areas of the project.

A further understanding to 2D and 3D BIM.

A further understanding to 2D and 3D BIM. 

Firstly, we have started off with 2d.   
2D, as we know it on paper. That is the X,Y axis. This hand drawing, this is auto cad.  

The third dimension 3D, Is the addition of adding the Z axis.  
3D BIM is perhaps the BIM we are most familiar with - the process of creating graphical and non-graphical information and sharing this information in a Common Data Environment (CDE). 
As the project lifecycle progresses this information becomes ever more rich in detail until the point at which the project data is handed over to a client at completion.

What are the different dimensions of BIM?

The confusion is real. The other day I had a customer come and enquire about Level 5 BIM?? I mean really.. I said what do mean about Level 5 BIM, he said I want costing..

So I thought i'd create a video about the different dimensions of BIM

What is BIM ?

BIM is an acronym for Building Information Modelling, or Building Information Model. It describes the process of designing a building collaboratively using one coherent system of computer models rather than as separate sets of drawings.
