If you’re looking for better communication and collaboration among team members, then you need to start using a BIM platform! Here are ten reasons why.
BIM quality control is essential for four main reasons: first, because BIM models are used to make decisions about buildings’ design, construction, and operation. If the models are not of high quality, then these decisions will not be based on accurate or complete information. Second, because BIM models are often used to create visualizations (e.g., renderings and animations), if the quality of the model is not good, then the visuals will also not be good. Third, because BIM models are used to generate data used in analysis and simulation; if the quality of the model is not good, then the results of the analysis and simulation will also not be accurate. Finally, because BIM models are used as a basis for facility management
