Significance of 4D and 5D BIM


Building Information Modeling gives birth to a wide array of services like building design, 3D modeling, clash detection, 4D scheduling, cost estimation, etc. which are very useful for Engineers, Contractors and other professionals. BIM technology can be employed for generating efficient 3D coordination models which facilitate apparent 360 degree 3D view of the designed buildings along with the entire angle. Evaluate these models and obtain thorough information regarding the building models as well as find out significant clashes inside the designs or models. BIM 4D and 5D analysis is useful for creating authentic schedule concerning all construction works together with complete charts associated with the cost estimation of the project in general.

 4D building information modeling is performed to simulate the schedules of several construction activities and space requisites. 4D BIM facilitates the users to obtain persuasive 3D visualization to be utilized by project team members, Owner, Contractors, etc. to get the view of the complete project and construction plans in a professional manner.

In 5D BIM, the 5th dimension alias information associated with cost estimation is integrated in a project model. Inside the models, the total cost estimation allied information is integrated in a manner that while making any alteration in the design or model, the budget will also be adjusted immediately in proportion to the model.

5D BIM can provide extensive information like kind of materials for example rebar, concrete, formwork, material take-offs, material quantities, and other resource details like the details of equipment, labor etc.
