3 Trends that are Changing the Construction Industry

2022 has seen the world move out of a pandemic and into a brave new world. The construction world has always been slow in adopting new digital technologies but recently some major trends have emerged. Below are three that made their mark in 2022 and will continue to do so in 2023.

1. Cloud computing

Gone are the days of downloading endless new versions of documents to your own computer. Cloud computing enables group access to the same synchronized documents, ensuring that everyone involved in a project is collaborating on the most up-to-date version.

2. Mobile technology

Mobile technology makes the office portable. Instead of printing plans and documents to take to site visits, engineers and site managers can access everything directly from their mobile devices. Used in combination with cloud computing, mobile technology ensures the most accurate information is always available, wherever you are.

3. BIM application solutions

BIMSearch

is one such application that helps you take your data to the max. If your project has a BIM model saved on Autodesk’s BIM 360® or Autodesk Construction Cloud™ platforms, you can get started straight away. Our solution uses the data in a BIM model to manage all stage of your project easily: run quantity takeoffs in seconds, plan delivery logistics, follow your project’s progress, check invoices, and more!

 

With BIMSearch you can:

 

Search and locate

Quickly search your model according to category, parameter, or even just a key word in the type name. View the results on the model itself, allowing you to calculate quantities, spot modeling errors, and locate specific elements, instantly.

 

Collect and save

Save your search results, or any manually-selected elements, as a selection set of elements. With endless possibilities from “fire doors ground floor” to “concrete cast November ‘22” you can isolate exactly the data you need.

 

Organize and communicate

Color-code your sets of elements and make comparing data and tracking progress visual and accessible. Use for scope of work packages, invoices and billing, schedule planning and more…best of all, all the data is visually presented on the model and exportable to Excel, making all the information accessible to everyone – no matter their level of experience with BIM.

The future...

Innovation is changing the construction world, making it more dynamic and more efficient. The more technology is implemented the more we see a change in the industry and new gold standards being set. As we end 2022 and go into 2023 it is clear that the digital transformation will continue to break new ground. Make sure you are at the forefront of the future with BIMSearch.
