BIM for Healthcare Construction

In the world of BIM, there’s a new technology that’s going to change the way we see models and designs. Using 3D glasses and a program called CAVE, a user can see a virtual model come to life. These are being used in healthcare to improve facilities and allow users to see a structure’s entryway doors, piping, doorways and more. The model moves with the user, so you’re able to virtually walk through an entire building.

According to healthcaredesignmagazine.com, “It takes away the complexity of a BIM model and allows the average person—doctors, surgeons, healthcare facility managers—to be in a space and assess it, long before construction starts. They can then provide feedback on the design and layout, allowing changes to be made in the model as opposed to in the field, where it’s much more costly.”

This is an interesting new technology that will allow users to do a virtual walk through of the BIM model. Until now, nothing like this has been available.

Here’s why you should implement BIM in hospital construction

Quantity takeoff / Quantifying and estimation

BIM allows clients and professionals to detail material, labor, and other costs associated with the construction process. This way, they can make better scheduling and budgeting choices before beginning construction.

Better coordination and collaboration between professionals

BIM is a platform with multiple capabilities that enables subject-matter experts like architects, engineers, MEP professionals, and even clients and stakeholders to coordinate the process from start-to-finish.

Informed decision making

3D BIM models enhance visualization of the project. This enables experts to carefully plan the construction process to avoid clashes or other mishaps.

Parametric modelling

Another feature that enhances visualization is parametric modelling, which is a process of creating and managing digital representations of the physical and functional characteristics of a building. These representations can be easily modified based on different parameters like dimensions and materials used.

This allows architects, engineers, and other building professionals to design, simulate, and analyze a building’s performance in a virtual environment before construction begins.

Better project management

BIM’s capabilities allows streamlining and efficient management of all the phases of the construction process. Furthermore, all the project-related information can be documented on BIM itself and can be accessed any time.

Hospital construction is something with several moving parts, there is a lot to consider and think about. BIM allows everyone involved in the project to collaborate and coordinate to get value and develop a stunning and secure structure.

The system also uses drones. They’ll gather data on a daily basis to use within the virtual mock-up models. They’ll record the quality of the structure from wall paint to floor types and even steel structures and drywall. This technology is amazing and will really step the game up for BIM users.

Even more, the drones will have the ability to inspect hard to reach areas that are in hospitals. Without this technology, it could take a long while to inspect the 30th floor of a building that might require a crane to reach. The drones will capture photos of the building’s hard to reach areas while in construction and then after, so that inspectors can use the software to virtually walk though and check things out!

Also according to healthcaredesignmagazine.com, “3-D printers are being used to produce physical models that help owners visualize their buildings or specific building components. With 3-D printing, construction teams can create laser-accurate building components of any shape and size with pinpoint accuracy so they can be prefabricated offsite and more easily assembled on a project site for a faster, more cost-effective construction process. For example, there’s tremendous value in creating a physical scalable model of two steel elements of a building to show exactly how they’ll fit together.”

This shouldn’t surprise us, as technology in this industry keeps getting better and better! We can’t wait to see how this program changes the functionality and quality of healthcare facilities in the coming months!
