Block the Time in BIM-chain
Why is it necessary to use blockchain in the BIM environment as a tool for new economic interaction?
BIM services market capitalization is increasing exponentially. According to forecasts, the total amount of services rendered in BIM-environment will be $ 5,994.1 million by 2023. The community of professionals finds more and more advantages in information modeling technologies which offer a new mean of communication between architects, engineers, experts, managers, project managers and customers.
As a professional community, we often wonder: if the time invested in designing certain objects using BIM technology finally pays off? We all know that it is a necessary step within the framework of the project and without it no object will be constructed and commissioned. Yet we can’t but acknowledge that many times we lose time reinventing design wheels. That’s why we started re-useing previously designed objects from our own local libraries more and more often. These objects allow us to save time as it certainly speeds the process, up bringing the result closer. In other words, we use our experience to save time and to increase our productivity and, as a result, to get a reward.
But unlike two-dimensional drawings on paper, with the help of BIM, today we can use the same object multiple times. In this case, the cost of BIM content changes, though it is still quite difficult to say how exactly it happens. In some cases it decreases, while in other cases it increases. But most importantly, we all can see that there is a new market, with a new model of economic interaction between professionals of the whole industry.That has become possible thanks to a new BIM language.
Having worked on BIMLIB service in the environment of BIM-design and construction, architectural supervision, construction supervision and control for more than 15 years, our team knows that the time spent on creating such objects can and should be turned into an asset that gives architects, engineers, programmers and BIM managers an opportunity of additional income.
Communication between organizations within the framework of subcontractor agreements and the implementation of these contracts on the basis of IFC assemblies including the related responsibilities are very important and will be discussed a bit later. But as soon as we see that the same proprietary object can be used repeatedly, we are obliged to take into account the author's reward for such re-usage.
Today we exchange BIM-content on a paid and free basis with more than 3,000 architects and engineers who seem more than satisfied with the result.
The experience shows that a controlled exchange based on blockchain can and should significantly improve the quality of BIM content and architectural and engineering solutions. This is how these smallest "pieces of LEGO constructor" will be designed.
