BIM maturity: 5D Cost

BIM in relation the 3D aspect seems to be well established and strong processes are implemented in almost every single construction firm in the country. Now, we need to begin thinking on what is next, and in the case of BIM, the development will need to focus on 4D (time) and 5D (cost), but not just in the execution phase.

In order to build good standards and grow maturity around these areas, it is necessary to involve the planners and commercial specialists in the BIM strategy development process. Only in this way will the process take into account the output required by these 2 disciplines. This is necessary in order to take full advantage of the information produced and incorporate it in the project design.

IKT agreements must include minimum requirements and conditions on how to produce the project material, not only for the final delivery, but also along the design process to facilitate the control around these 2 specialist discipline deliveries.
