The scale and timeline of large infrastructure projects set them apart from other builds. The scope of these massive projects often requires multiple teams collaborating on design and construction, often with different software tailored to each specialty. The building cycle of large-scale infrastructure projects is also longer, necessitating many updates to the original design as the project evolves—sometimes over the span of several years.
Coordinating these extensive projects can be a challenge. Changes to any part of the project require that new drawings be made and distributed to each of the project’s stakeholders, of which there are often many, regardless of the scope and scale of the modifications. On a lengthy project, that process can be repeated multiple times. These iterations are expensive and time-consuming, with little room for error.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is helping resolve these challenges by facilitating a collaborative environment for end-to-end project design and management of large-scale infrastructure projects.
