The technological trends 2018 in construction working drawings and design modeling process

Toronto, ON – January 23th, 2018 – The construction projects are becoming more intelligent in the way they are carried out because of the cutting-edge building technologies and radical developments. There are newer construction methods that is changing the way architectural drawings and construction plans are displayed, archived and even perceived by the clients.

The technological advancements ensure that the projects are delivered faster and at more reasonably lower costs. Revit is one of the latest innovations that has completely transformed the architecture design, drafting and modeling processes. There has been a demand for better quality output at a faster rate and a much longer standing. This has encouraged many construction firms to completely immerse themselves in the newer technologies.

In the last few years, this industry has broken the old traditions of being the least involved and updated sector when it comes to technology. We have seen them make a leap for the newer processes and making high investments state-of-the-art machinery. Their employees are now more efficient, impacting the duration of construction projects and costs in a positive way.Email UsKnow more about us or request a callback from our executive:

BluEnt has highlighted 3 gigantic trends that will grow further in 2018 and take the building construction, drawings and design process to a whole new level.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow is important is generating a brilliant set of construction documents. Also, alongside 3D BIM modelling, today, we also have 4D and 5D BIM, depending on the types of data integrated. 4D BIM is known for including time-related information into the model, while 5D BIM integrates the schedule and costs. A higher use of 3D, 4D and 5D BIM will allow employees to run multiple scenarios more effectively, modify processes and incorporate intensive functions to understand the impact.

The invention of 3D laser scanning has taken the industry by storm and is going to be a bigger deal in 2018. It can digitally capture the accurate measurements of a structure to provide point-cloud data. This data can then be integrated into BIM software which will allow the team to create the most precised size and shape of any structure. With an increased use of this innovative technology, construction projects won’t be relying on human measurements anymore. This will further reduce more errors and save both time and costs.

5D Macro BIM is being embraced by the construction firms, but still not to the fullest. The models created through these can display the impact on the schedule, costs and constructibility. This allows the clientèle to think over the large scale options and make decisions based on the exact information and data provided. With the use of 5D Macro BIM on an increased level the pre construction designs will offer a more technical and complete picture on the design concepts.

The new technologies and innovations are thus providing better visualization and detailing. We are not just talking about the architectural/structural models here but also the models of the building systems. BIM is now also being used by the BluEnt team for structural engineering, mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, ductwork, steel work and many more. There are better clash detection programs and newer versions and software to ensure that no systems actually interferes with one another.
