BIM MANAGEMENTBIM should be embedded in each discipline, stakeholder and overall culture of the entire industry. All key discussions and decisions should be made with BIM in mind, from conceptual business or project set up with the PMO, to the contractual requirements. BIM and more importantly the processes it encourages, are the clear differentiator for every business when it comes to achieving their overall goals and objectives, to become leaner, more efficient, more competitive.

What stats says...
Having a Project Management Office that can best organise your business or project to its optimum performance, requires a system architecure set up that is complimented by all the latests technoloiges and excellerated by understanding of the data that your projects collect on a daily basis.
A Common Data Environment (CDE) is a necessity for any construction project. Project information needs to be uploaded and shared with the project team effectively in order to ensure successful delivery. Purchasing a CDE isn't the complete answer. The system must be configured according to the project requirements with regard to workflows and file naming conventions. Ensuring that all of the necessary supplychain and associated workers are added to the CDE allows information to flow effortlessly.
KPI METRICS DASHBOARDING
We live in a world of data and this provides project teams to measure success in ways that were not possible previously. The best way to improve is to take a measure of the output and set that as a benchmark. Whether your organisation refers to them as benchmarks, KPIs or metrics, having the ability to monitor progress will ensure that the organisation operates at the optimum level.
Project information comes in a number of different formats. Ensuring that all information sources are aligned is crucial to mitigating the risk of completing abortive works. Detailed cross examinations of 3D and 2D content along with other project documentation prior to construction is the most cost effective way of safe-guarding any project.
3D Modelling has revolutionised how construction projects are designed. The technology has helped digital construction managers to plan and manage construction projects efficiently. The ability to use parametric object-based modelling allows project teams to produce better designs in shorter time frames.
3D design coordination refers to the process of using a computer to check 3D models for aspects of the design that are not buildable. Visual Interrogation and Clash Detection helps to eradicate design coordination issues prior to them causing problems on site.
4D PHASING & SEQUENCING
4D Phasing & Sequencing is the term used to refer to the application of the time 'dimension' to the 3D model content. This empowers those involved in the project to understand how the components of the building will come together during delivery. These construction simulations highlight issues that may not have been apparent previously.
Alinging project costs to the model and build sequence allows for powerful financial data for, projecting the interim and final costs of a project and managing cashflows during the project.Combining this with live project updates empowers the manag ement team to make decisions using real time data.
We now have the ability to capture vast quantities of live data, this presents the industry with great potential to evolve and progress. The key to success - the utilisation of this data, analysising it, cancelling out the noise, presenting key live facts to the decision makers to allow Management to drive efficiency and deliver a quality product.
Laser scanning or point clouds need to be seen, not as an expensive tool which gives you a dimensionally correct 3D visual of your project, but more as a vaildation fail safe for everything from design to installation checks.
It seems unequivical to idnetify the benefits that drones bring to the construction industry. They are simply faster, safer and cheaper.
A lot can change between reaching the point of having a 'fully coordinated' information set and reaching the point of having a 'fully installed' system on site. As-Built Verification is necessary to ensure that all of the hard work done during the Coordination phase is realised during the Construction phase.
