Building Information Modeling (BIM)

How BIM Can Solve Your Problems

Join Tony Acampa, Technical Team Leader at Shelter Systems Limited, as he dives into his experience with building information modeling (BIM) and how it can streamline coordination between trades before construction even starts. Ultimately, BIM can significantly decrease cycle times and reduce installation issues in the field, making component manufacturers an even more valuable partner in the process.

  • A quarter of a million people left the housing construction industry from 2002-2012, and many of them have found employment elsewhere.
  • Framers are feeling the effects of this exodus more acutely than most, prompting them to look for creative ways to do more with fewer people.
  • CMs can play a pivotal role in switching framers from sticks to components by offering installation training and expertise to new framing employees.
  • Inadequate communication can fragment the various trades working on a project and lead to costly mistakes and frustrating delays.
  • GCs are looking to turnkey framing as a way to minimize that fragmentation and reduce waste and the potential for mistakes.
  • The efficiencies of the turnkey approach with componentized framing make it the best solution going forward.
