    Beginning of the Digital Age in the Construction Industry "BIM"


    The world is changing rapidly, and our lives are affected by this change. This transformation, which we can call a digital revolution, is at odds with our life. While the power of technology is moving forward, those who can not adapt are condemned to retreat.

    One of the biggest transformation tools of construction industry BIM It has been. Companies in the sector BIM relationship with; those who are already active, those who are often hearing, those who are curious but who have not yet been able to use it and will soon hear it ... So we will talk about a transformation that is not escape.

    There is a recognized definition of the physical and functional properties of a structure expressed in the form of digital presentation BIM'of. The English "Building Information Modeling" abbreviation of the words, in Turkish "Building Information System", "Building Information Modeling", "Building Information Modeling" have found such a response to yourself.

    The process that begins with the creation of three-dimensional intelligent and parametric models of a discipline of different disciplines on a digital platform. coordination of these models, elimination of conflicts, acquisition of financial metrics data and use in planning processes.

    From the design to the construction and operation phases, the predicted information models are obtained. Compared to traditional two-dimensional project production processes, great benefits are gained. The design processes carried out with the model shortens the decision periods, the interdisciplinary coordination is increased, conflicts are solved without going to the field and finally reliable quantities are obtained.

    One of the emerging concepts to increase efficiency and to do better things in less time BIM, of course, is not a process where we can apply an amount and reach maximum yield. As in all transformations, this process has some difficulties. This process, which is mainly implemented with software, is high investment costs and it is difficult to find experienced personnel on this area. The other is that such a radical transformation is actually a change of culture in the form of business and the adaptation process is difficult.

    If you look at the countries of the world, the USA and the UK are leading, and in countries such as Norway, Finland, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Australia BIMwidespread use can be seen. While studies on this issue are increasing in Europe, big investments are made in Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and significant developments are taking place. According to the National BIM Report (2017) published in the UK, the proportion of BIM users is 62%, the proportion of those who are aware of BIM is 35%, and the proportion of those who are not aware of BIM is 3%. In a survey comparing the durations of contractors using BIM, the BIM user rate was 8% in the US and Canada over 11 years, and the BIM user rate in the 6-10 year period was 28% (McGraw Hill Construction, 2013).

    What are the conditions in our country while the rates in the world countries are so high? Unfortunately, we are in the initial phase. In recent years, there has been controversy in domestic contracts, which is raising awareness. Particularly in some of the public contracts, the necessity of BIM is a necessity for contractors and designers BIMhas increased their transition rates. There are so many industry workers who are unaware of BIM, who do not believe in their benefits, even though they are aware. Nevertheless, it seems that our country has entered this road which is no longer returnable.

    As with every conversion process, this transformation that the industry is exposed to will take time to complete, adaptation times will not be short ...

    The unknowns of this transformational adventure, the curiosity, in short, "BIM" i mean  "Building Information Modeling" our writing series will continue.
