Digital Plan Room Software
BIM Ready, Color Capable IPD
Have you heard about this emerging technology called BIM
(Building Information Modeling)? It is going to replace CAD, not just in
2D or 3D, but in 4D and 5D
no less! Or so they say. No more prints, the project team will have
access to a live digital model of the project using their desktops, rugged
laptops, netbooks, tablet PCs, and eventually their PDAs and phones.
It is fascinating but hard to believe. It's just
difficult to imagine subcontractors on a job site manipulating a computer model
on a small handheld computer with a tiny screen, trying to figure out how much
cement to pour and where to pour it. No, most will probably
stick with paper plans if offered a choice.
Somewhere down the line, drawing sets will need to be created and distributed to
tradespeople working in the field and some will require paper prints. The
process responsible for distribution of project data to team members is becoming
known as IPD (Integrated Project Delivery) and that's where
online digital plan room software can be very beneficial, if not crucial.
