PCSS Selected to Sit as Panel Judges for NUS BIM for Construction Competition
PCSS has been selected to sit on the judging panel for a Building Information Modeling (BIM) competition organized by National University of Singapore (NUS) in collaboration with their BSc. Project and Facilitation Management course, final year BIM module. The event will take place on NUS 1pm to 6pm.
Altogether there will be 8 teams for this cohort and each team will have 8 to 10 members. The awards for this year will be:-
· Best ArchiBIM Award
· Best 4DBIM (Time) Award
· Best 5DBIM (Cost) Award
· Best BIM Project 2015
PCSS has been selected to provide and present awards for the ‘Best 4DBIM (Time) Award’ and as we are the Synchro 4D BIM software Certified Business Partner for the region we are extremely proud and honored to be a part of this award ceremony at this distinguished university.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is revolutionizing the way savvy contractors, architects and owners do business — slashing project delivery time 25% (and sometimes more), cutting claims and change orders to near zero, saving millions of dollars in incorrectly specified materials and fixtures, slashing legal fees and reducing contractor liability…and putting big smiles on clients’ faces.
Yet today, only a small fraction of construction and design executives are using BIM. Many continue to sit on the sidelines, scared off by presumed steep learning curves, high software costs, legal and contractual confusion, and fear of the unknown. This year’s BIM Roadmap series was designed to help those still sitting on the fence learn why they should start using BIM, along with practical steps they can start taking immediately. Purchase this exclusive series if you want to learn more about how to improve BIM implementation in your organization, including…
- What the National BIM Standard-US™ Version 2, released in May 2012, means to you and how it will affect your BIM decisions going forward.
- How has the reality of BIM played out versus the original visions; are the contractors and owners the primary beneficiaries, or do A/Es achieve an ROI as well?
- Is it the technology or culture that is the bottleneck? Or are other factors holding us back?
- How are the roles of the parties, and their relationships, being affected by the use of BIM? Is this a good thing?
- Are certain types and/or sizes of projects emerging that make more sense for BIM implementation?
- Are A/Es, contractors and/or CMs missing opportunities by not implementing BIM? Learn how public agencies in Florida and elsewhere are specifying BIM use in all phases of new projects, for example.
- What are we learning about the skill sets and day-to-day usage and management issues encountered?
- Learn how BIM-enabled projects allow the owner and contracting team to more easily achieve and document LEED goals as well as be in a better position to take advantage of newer building methods, products and equipment.
- How necessary, or advantageous, is it to engage alternative delivery methods such as IPD, D/B and early involvement?
- What is COBIE, what does it look like and why do you need to be conversant with it?
- And much, much more!
