The newest blockchain solution will convert BIM into a collaborative and legally binding process in reality

Bimchain.io is planning to incorporate it’s distributed ledger technology (DLT), equivalent to that applied in Blockchain-based systems like the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, into BIM processes, tools, and data. It is still in beta testing phase.

The project is supported by Autodesk and the Plan Transition Numérique dans le Bâtiment, the French equivalent of the BIM Task Group in the UK, and a market-ready product is supposed to be introduced next year.

The objective is to develop a new collaborative process for fulfilling the gap among 3D digital modeling and the conventional and legally binding paper-based processes associated with project administration, building control, insurance and payment.

The purpose is to connect authenticated proofs of contributions to the 3D model with automated payments, a form of smart contract that ensures all stakeholders are dedicated to obtain the level of quality essential.

The primary goal is to produce a decentralized version of BIM, which rather than running in a central common data environment on a cloud platform run by a third party, is subjected to peer-to-peer data exchange with no one party capable of managing or claiming ownership of the data.

Benefits of blockchain in construction:

The project schedule turns to be hundreds of smart contracts in a Common Data Environment (CDE), perceptible to all project stakeholders.

Each smart contract contains a value.

Completion and authentication of a smart contract sets off an automatic payment from one wallet to another.

The project acquires its next ‘block’ of information that will make BIM model updated with accomplished work and project spend.

The role of BIM in prefabrication period

BIM is used to provide digital representation of the building process in 3D with the scope of a 4D (time) and 5D (cost) of data to minimize errors, enhance effectiveness and decision-making.

With improved perceptibility and clarity throughout a project to ensure that things remain on the schedule that’s been dedicated to and within the calculated budget being proposed, BIM tools provide substantial ROI for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals.

Besides, base-level geometry of a structure, BIM comprises of spatial relationships; mechanical, electric and plumbing (MEP) components and the quantities and cost estimates for the required building materials. If any modification is made, associated objects are updated along with it, all in a centralized model so that each team member of the project can get access of that model.

BIM produces a broad, digital picture of a project to facilitate the project stakeholders to have clear view concerning what resources are essential and when, as well as reduce the chances of over- or under-estimating the time and money the project will require.

The objective of prefab and modular methods is to lessen the time required to fabricate a structure on the jobsite, as well as integrate MEP components into the panel or module while fabrication is going on. BIM contains these components in the entire building model and makes trade-to-trade coordination better.

In prefab and modular construction, assembly requirements are altered since the piece, panel or module design is calibrated. As soon as the design gets ready, BIM can generate visual-based manuals, in place of written instructions so that the workers can get a clear idea of the new steps for fabrication.

Building in the virtual space is incorporating the new technologies like virtual and augmented reality.

Virtual reality can offer an immersive understanding of the BIM model and a supplementary resource for AEC professionals to examine the design options and find out design errors.

AR facilitates to layer BIM models with real objects in the jobsite as a reference point during the assembly process and avoids the construction errors.
