One of the challenges for BIM adoption is the fact that is surrounded by myths that makes teams hesitant to adopt BIM. BIM is stil seen as a 3D modeling tool, people still believe that BIM is for big projects, that is a really complicated process and takes more time.

Is BIM a 3d modeling tool?

No, BIM is a process and a #methodology based on the 3D digital model, (that requires 3d modeling skills), but this is only part of the larger process. BIM is really about advanced digital project management of a building that is been built or that's in use.

Is BIM only about big projects?

BIM affects all construction types and sizes, including buildings and infrastructure projects. The scale is not important, the #advantages are significant in every project. BIM process reduces design errors, improves communication with the client, provides better documentation and cost control and increases production efficiency .

Is BIM too complicated?

BIM requires some training and changes the way you do things, but if you invest in BIM you upgrade your office to deliver projects faster and easier. Change begins with getting to know what BIM is.

Is BIM time consuming?

Anything new is #time consuming and difficult at the beginning. It will probably take some time to change the way you work, communicate and document projects, but at the end the benefits will make the BIM #journey worth the effort .
