Collaboration: What's Construction's Problem?
The AEC industry is starting to come to terms with BIM. But stakeholders still use different platforms to share information with one another. What's the problem?
- Data gets lost
- Information is inconsistent
- BIM projects take too long
Technology is both the solution and the problem in this story. Construction is finally catching up with other industries on the technology front. We would not now construct anything without having it first designed using a computer. We are all collaborating online - even if only via email. So why hasn't that fixed the problem?
Pre-construction projects should not be difficult to collaborate on. The design is merely a concept - so everyone involved should be willing to share, comment on and use the same BIM model. In practice, everyone works on different platforms. This constant back and forth, working across a variety of digital (and non-digital) platforms stifles collaboration.
