BIM for multi-family housing

BIM technology is intended to support contractors and builders to construct more effectively. And as it happens, BIM fulfils just such a role in the construction of multi-family housing too.
First some definitions for those who need them.
For this post, let’s consider that multi-family housing is a type of housing facility where multiple housing units are built within one building or a few buildings within one complex. In some cases, units in a multi-family residential building are classified as condominiums. Here typically the units are owner individually instead of renting from a single apartment building owner. Many communities incorporate multi-family residences such as cohousing projects. From the perspective of their construction though, let’s consider that some common parameters apply to all multi-family housing.
The residential space and particularly the multi-family sector holds incredible potential for development. In most developed nations the residential multi-family market is responsible for a significant portion of all construction activity.
Of course, such a project has its complexity. The sheer size, scale, and delivery pressures are obvious issues. But while constructing a multi-family housing facility, a variety of other difficulties are encountered, such as:
  • Coordinating with the multiple teams
  • Integrating information
  • Access to information
  • Tracking and monitoring
  • Timely action
 A massive amount of information is created during the construction and development stage and not every significant bit of it is recorded. Every individual contractor involved during the construction and development stage utilises various tools to produce and process the information applicable to them. In such a fragmented environment, a missing piece of data can prove disastrous for the project.
This suggests the need for a centralised platform to share, exchange, and project information in real-time (or near real-time). In that context, BIM brings clear advantages to this construction and development process.
As most here already know, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D-model-based process that gives engineering, building, and development experts the insight and tools to productively plan, design, validate and collaborate while building. BIM is utilized to plan and document building and infrastructure designs. And obviously, multi-family residential projects can be improved with a well-thought BIM modelling strategy.
BIM gives a clear understanding of the materials utilised, the building life cycle of a specific structure, and the expense for building it. Better project coordination and collaboration with stakeholders, efficient work processes, 3D perceptions, and improved project results are just some of the advantages of using BIM processes
