BIM in healthcare enhances collaboration between numerous stakeholders – from architects to general contractors, modelers, designers, fabricators, and owners.

 

1. Build faster with BIM

   

 While the need for healthcare facilities is on an exponential rise amid COVID-19, the inherent complexity of such construction projects threatens to impede the pace. BIM tools are best positioned to speed up construction of healthcare projects. Preconstruction visualization, interdisciplinary coordination and better scheduling and planning help avoid costly rework at a later stage and aid faster construction process. Prefabrication technology has also proven to significantly shrink timelines.

 

2. Save costs with enhanced coordination

 

Detailed 3D BIM models enable cross-functional teams to communicate at a deeper level for clarity on project roles, responsibilities, scope of work, LOD etc. This collaboration makes it easier to understand common goals and streamlines the complete process. The resultant reduced rework and higher resource utilization saves on costs.

 

3. Reduce construction rework with clash detection and resolution

 

Generating clash-free 3D BIM models in the earliest design phase helps save time and mitigate rework in the later stages of a project. With various MEP systems working in sync, a federated 3D BIM model is the most viable solution for a robust planning of Healthcare Infrastructure.

The adoption of a 3D model for clash or interference detection helps reduce RFI’s during the construction process. This saves on large sums of money and time as clashes are detected digitally before they become potential problems onsite. Walkthroughs can be integrated with VR/AR technology to understand critical routes through the hospital facility while minimizing the possibility of rework.

 

4. Manage space better with BIM

 

Healthcare systems rely on meticulous space management. BIM and its new design prototypes, layouts and materials ensure that design intent adheres to client specifications and expectations.

BIM modeling allows accurate room dimensions, placement of healthcare devices, energy calculations, lighting systems, walking areas etc. This results in constructing a space-optimized healthcare facility, ensuring a comfortable environment for patients and healthcare personnel.

 

5. Track and monitor your hospital assets better

 

Architects, designers etc. store building asset information in the Revit model, making it easy to extract and access it from anywhere.                                                                                           

As healthcare units are invested with a huge range of instruments and tools, using BIM allows all asset information to be fed directly into the inventory for model visualization. It even keeps track of the installed equipment for operations and facilities management through standardized methods such as COBie. A computerized maintenance management system allows review of this data even in the pre-construction stage.

 

6. Drive best value from hospital warranties with BIM models

 

BIM is used to exploit warranty information for healthcare components or objects. Without the use of BIM, warranties are not rightfully claimed. As BIM can capture accurate installation timeframes of all the healthcare systems under warranty, the data is easily available to all the stakeholders as and when required. This helps healthcare staff or administrators reap significant savings on component costs.

With accurate deliverables and assets being handed over to clients, it becomes fairly simple for healthcare facility owners to review warranty details as required. The ability to rely on this information saves a lot of time and cost during replacements, renovations etc.

 

 

CONCLUSION

 

With hundreds of billions of dollars being pumped into healthcare construction globally, owners fully understand the potential of BIM to build cutting-edge hospitals or ground-breaking facilities.

The diverse technical specifications related to building projects need to be accessed from a centralized database. BIM is hence an imperative for multidisciplinary and multi stakeholder collaboration. BIM overcomes construction challenges and helps owners and project stakeholders plan, manage and track ongoing maintenance.Advancements in BIM technology and features such as 3D walkthroughs allow stakeholders to visualize a structure way before its actual construction!
