We can work out BIM model solution for facade in the very early stage of the building process.
The implementation of BIM in the façade design phase involves a detailed study of Building Information Modelling across the construction industry, and of design and manufacturing process in façade engineering. The purpose of this phase is to identify current barriers to the application of BIM in façade design and specify the requirements for an effective implementation.
BIM enables the virtual information model to be handed over from Design Team (architects, surveyors, consulting engineers, and others) to Contractor and Subcontractors and then to the Owner, each adding their own contribution in their discipline. Specific knowledge and tracking of changes are accommodated into the single model.
