 What to expect during the event

BIM Dimensions have always been identified theoretically as we all know them through the web. But implementing them in real life is a totally different story. BIM dimensions have evolved from manual drawing boards to the first 2D CAD systems, to 3D modelling.
Once you have a 3D Model you can start doing some magic by adding multiple information from various departments  within your company or project stakeholders.
By adding the time element through the project schedule you can have a 4D simulation of your project showing the construction progress from mobilization to handing over.
On the other hand, collaborating with cost control and commercial departments can give you a 5D cost analysis of the model, in addition to quantity extraction for tendering, estimation and procurement departments.
You can also coordinate with the energy saving solutions team and the solar systems unit trying to minimize the energy consumption of the facility by monitoring the 6D energy model.
Developing an Asset Information Model (AIM) will establish 7D by incorporating all information required for the operation of the facility and the maintenance of assets and equipment, collected, and recorded according to the COBie or other equivalent specification.
Before mobilization you can have several workshops with HSE team to define the hazardous areas from site hoarding to excavation and site logistics by highlighting them on your model to minimize the Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTI-FR) and accomplishing 8D.
BIM can contribute to lean construction by reducing construction waste, minimizing LTI’s, optimizing project execution and delivery dates, integrating with supply chain and collaborating with project Stakeholders. Implementing these factors will result in accomplishing 9D.
Last but not least is 10D, industrialized Construction. Increasing off-site activities and production and minimizing on-site works has many benefits like reducing labor injuries on site, improving product quality and minimizing construction waste which needs to be done through a collaborative environment between Office, Site and Factory.
