Increase your company's digital maturity level

BIM and Digitization

When we talk about digitization, we often talk about processes that are translating analog processes into digital, and turning something physical or mechanical into numbers. More specifically, in the building industry, digitization is about  starting to draw lines on the computer instead of on a piece of paper, sharing a file instead of printing a drawing and communicating in a model instead of via email. To us, digitization is about how we manage and share information during a project and how we can do it in an easier, more efficient and more secure way with the help of digital technology.

 

In the building industry, you cannot talk about digitization without mentioning BIM. Today, BIM occurs everywhere within the industry, which many have probably encountered at some point in the last 20 years. BIM, Building Information Modeling, is a working method for a more digitized workflow in the design and construction phase. The method can be defined as “an intelligent 3D model-based process to a more simple, safe and efficient implementation and coordination of a construction project”.

 

Increasing the digital standard in projects and implementing projects with BIM processes are becoming more common today, but are you qualified to keep up with the current development?

Digital development

In connection with BIM, we normally talk about levels of  digital development. In England, where the building industry has come a long way with BIM design, they have concretized this development in different stages, a so-called BIM staircase that visualizes a staircase for digital development. This is an easy way to quickly evaluate your own business and see what could be the next step for your particular company.

 

At Cadcraft, we strongly believe in digitization and that it should take place at a reasonable pace adapted to each company.
