VISION FOR THE FUTURE
BIM is here to stay, certainly for the next couple of years. But in all probability it will grow even further. Even technology like BIM is ready for innovation after a certain period. This next step is only possible if we stop holding on so tightly to traditional building principles. BIM makes it possible to engineer a perfect virtual building in 3D, including the different disciplines. At the time this information has to be transferred to the build, we will make a 2D output. Making and especially drawing up 2D output takes a lot of time. Why would we want this “pretty” 2D output when we can have a perfect 3D model? We are working towards a method without 2D output!
Each party needs a different BIM rendering. A client for instance has no need for a set of drawings with measurements, they need to really experience the building! Virtual Reality (VR) gives you the chance to truly show the client what the end result will be like. We already use it at Klous + Brandjes, but wouldn’t it be an innovation if we could virtually complete the building with VR.
We are also looking for a working method that is aimed at the 3D model as much as possible. 3D CONTRACTING is one of the keys to help us achieve this. The specifications integrated into the model, and the application for a building permit based on 3D models. Small steps have already been taken, but we would like to see even more progress. It will happen, but when?
