BIM: 2023 industry


 BIM: 2023 Industry Predictions


The AEC industry has long benefited from BIM technology, and the future seems even more promising. This year, we can anticipate several exciting developments in the BIM field as it’s a field that is constantly evolving and generating new ideas.


Technology developments, adjustments to labour markets, supply chains, and new 3D models will significantly impact all corners of the BIM market in 2023.


The increased automation, improved safety, and greater collaboration are shaping the future of BIM as we know it. And construction companies must be aware of these industry trends to remain competitive and improve their ROI per project. 


So let’s look at what 2023 has in store for the BIM industry.


1. Virtual Reality

In recent years, virtual reality (VR) technology has gained popularity, and in 2023, we anticipate this trend to continue. Not only virtual reality enables engineers to construct fully immersive 3D environments of their concepts, but it also speeds up the overall remote site management process.


The VR technology can also help to simulate construction scenarios, allowing teams to identify potential on-site issues and make necessary adjustments before the physical construction begins. 


Additionally, the use of VR in BIM can improve communication and collaboration among project teams and clients, because it offers a clear large-scale 3D image of the projects at every step of the development phase.


2. 3D Printing

Recent important developments in 3D printing technology have been a game-changer for many industries. However, as more and more BIM specialists become aware of its inherent advantages, we forecast that in 2023, it will also have a significant impact on the construction industry.


As 3D printing keeps evolving, it assists BIM specialists in creating highly accurate prototypes of building components, cutting down on the time and expense of conventional construction techniques.


One of the biggest advantages of 3D printing technology is the capacity to produce complex and one-of-a-kind building designs from a single digital file, which contributes to a highly efficient 3D construction project. And by having the project in accurate 3D physical form, the teams will be able to analyze its structure better and understand its functionality, efficiency, and dynamics.


3. Cloud Collaboration

As the world becomes increasingly digitised, cloud-based collaboration tools are becoming crucial for BIM projects. 


Teams can now access and share project data from any location, at any time, by using the cloud framework, which eliminates the need for physical meetings and improves communication among team members. 


Additionally, cloud-based BIM tools can provide real-time data and analytics, facilitating better decision-making and raising project transparency.


4. Drone Technology

Drones can be used by AEC experts to gather precise data and report on the status of construction sites, enabling more precise design and planning. Additionally, it aids BIM specialists in streamlining and improving their modelling processes.


As an added benefit, drones can be used for site inspections and monitoring over a large region quickly thanks to the utilization of this technology, which reduces the need for human workers in potentially dangerous locations.


5. Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) will likely radically change the BIM industry in 2023 as it quickly integrates into every area of our life.


We can expect increased safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness as a result of using IoT devices that can monitor and gather real-time data on construction sites.


IoT technology has the ability to significantly advance the BIM sector by enabling experts to gather and examine data in unique and creative ways.


AEC professionals can make smarter judgments, increase the productivity and safety of construction sites, and design more sustainable and energy-efficient buildings by utilising IoT technology’s full potential. 


6. Construction Robotics & Automation

Construction robotics and automation is a relatively new field but with rapid growth that promises to revolutionize the construction industry in 2023. 


By using advanced robotics and automation technologies, early adopters can improve the speed, accuracy, and safety of construction tasks, which will ultimately result in more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable buildings.


One study shows that 55% of construction companies already use robots for their projects, and 81% of businesses say they will introduce robots in their projects within the next ten years.


The BIM Potential To Impact The Future of the AEC Industry In 2023 And Beyond

BIM enables the creation of a shared digital model that can be accessed and changed by all team members in real-time. This reduces the need for in-person meetings and improves communication among all team members. As a result, the design and construction process will be more effective, and the final product will be of higher quality.


Another way that BIM will impact the future of the AEC industry is through the use of advanced visualization and simulation technologies. BIM professionals can create highly detailed, interactive 3D models of buildings, which can be used to simulate construction scenarios and identify potential issues before the physical construction begins. This can lead to a reduction in construction errors and rework, ultimately resulting in cost savings.


Additionally, BIM will impact the future of the AEC industry by providing valuable data and analytics throughout the building life cycle. By using BIM, building owners and operators can access real-time data on energy consumption, maintenance needs, and other key performance indicators. This information can be used to improve the energy efficiency, performance, and sustainability of buildings, ultimately resulting in cost savings and improved building operations.


As a recap, BIM technology will be transforming the AEC industry in 2023 and beyond by improving collaboration, communication, visualization, and data analytics. The use of BIM will lead to more efficient, sustainable, and cost-effective buildings. 


We at Breon are excited about the opportunities that BIM technology presents and we are committed to staying at the forefront of this rapidly evolving field.


Final Words

In conclusion, the BIM industry is rapidly evolving, and these six trends are likely to have a significant impact in 2023. 


We at Breon are excited about the opportunities that these developments present, and we look forward to working with our clients to harness the power of BIM technology to create innovative, sustainable, and efficient buildings.
