Building Information Modeling (BIM) – Malaysia Moving Forward
There is a general understanding or the lack thereof regarding Building Information Modeling in Malaysia. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is not just a software. Let us be clear about that. BIM is a concept – an idea that has turned into a set of practices with the assistance of technology. The core idea is to develop and construct the desired building completely in the virtual and digital world before proceeding with real-life construction. This allows you to estimate, plan, and project forward of any upcoming situations, reducing the risk, cost and project delivery time. BIM is an upgrade to an already existing system in Malaysia. Previously, project management is only efficiently applicable if there is a project considering the amount of people you need in collaboration and as we all know it, more people, more cost. With BIM, anyone can explore the potential of any upcoming project or ideas without having to commit to the project yet. Everything is scalable, and BIM removes the tedious tasks and problems that consume a lot of precious project hours. In order to achieve this, you need skilled workers with enough capacity to operate the BIM tools required. Now let’s investigate the current events of BIM in Malaysia, and how you can get involved.
How Building Information Modeling Can Help You Grow?
BIM is heavily introduced in Malaysia due to the authorities’ confidence in the benefit the practice can provide to the local construction industry. Compared to the rest of the world, we are severely behind in the adoption of construction technology and knowledge, and CIDB is here to change that by promoting awareness and holding BIM sessions with registered contractors. We support their decision of stepping up to the world with BIM as our platform and as a representative of one of the top BIM software manufacturer; Autodesk, we seek to help out in spreading the awareness and practices as well. BIM in Malaysia has already been implemented in many projects endorsed and monitored by the governing bodies like JKR and CIDB. The biggest project that is implementing BIM in Malaysia is the MRT/Rapid/LRT railway projects.
