Integrating BIM data into 3D real estate modelling: what are the benefits?

3D modeling is proving to be an indispensable tool for any real estate professional wishing to present their project in a realistic and immersive way. BIM data can be linked to the model to provide an enriched visualization of the real estate project.

This data includes a range of geometric and technical building information. Their integration into 3D modeling offers multiple benefits to all stakeholders, at every stage of the project.

Find out how this innovative system can ensure the success of your real estate project, from the design phase through to construction and marketing.

Integrating BIM data into 3D modelling: reducing costs

Integrating BIM data with 3D modeling reduces potential design errors, ensuring savings during the construction process.

Reduced margins of error

BIM, or Building Information Modeling, is a system for modeling building data. Unlike simple 3D modeling, BIM enables the dynamic integration of variables or new components throughout the project.

BIM Data includes a variety of technical and non-technical information that enriches the digital model of your real estate project.

BIM data plays a fundamental role in project design and planning. A 3D model incorporating technical information can be used to detect faults even before the project is built.

The system facilitates the complex analyses, checks and calculations that guarantee the reliability of the end result. This efficient planning enables the client to optimize project execution with greater precision.

Error detection via digital mock-up saves you from incurring additional costs associated with changes and modifications during construction.

Cost management

BIM data also simplifies conflict resolution right from the design phase. These data contain not only geometric information, but also information on the different phases of the project, the objectives to be achieved and other requirements.

All this BIM data makes it easier to budget the project and find the best ways of ensuring quality with minimum expenditure. It also makes it easier to draw up technical specifications.

BIM software also provides access to budgeting and simulation tools. These allow you to run simulations to better control costs. BIM data gives you continuous control over the budget. So you can anticipate errors more effectively and reduce overall expenditure.

3D BIM modeling: improving collaboration between real estate players

Coordinating a real estate project is not an easy task, given the different disciplines involved. The role of BIM is precisely to store and standardize the information of interest to the various stakeholders.

Better access to data

Integrating BIM data into 3D modeling involves bringing together all the data inherent in a real estate project.

All parties concerned have easy access to this data, including engineers, architects, building owners, design offices, developers and other property managers.

These data can be consulted in real time, meaning that anyone can follow the status of projects, their evolution and potential modifications.

BIM data can contain the following information:

  • Materials and dimensions of each element: window, door, ceiling, floor... ;
  • Space delimitation ;
  • Project phases and lead times: architecture, actual construction, electrical installation, plumbing, etc. ;
  • Objectives to be achieved ;
  • Energy data ;
  • Building health and safety data ;
  • Design and construction costs, etc.

It should be noted, however, that not all information needs to be integrated into a 3D BIM model. In fact, too much data could lead to confusion, complicating the understanding of the players involved.

Better communication between stakeholders

Thanks to the ability to consult data in real time, all parties involved have access to the same information. BIM modeling thus promotes a shared understanding of the real estate project.

This system avoids disruptions between the different phases of the project, as the next participants can immediately take over thanks to the updated information.

Knowledge exchange is also at the heart of the BIM modeling system. It promotes interoperability and information exchange. Fluid communication ensures team efficiency and productivity, and the overall success of your project.

BIM data modeling: optimizing building lifecycle management

BIM data ensures document consistency, facilitating the work of all stakeholders.

Document consistency

During the design and construction phases, new data is continually being added to the project. This disparate data can lead to confusion between stakeholders at different stages.

BIM modeling aims to unify this information through transparent updating and sharing. Simply extract this data to create coherent documents.

This guarantees the continuity and smooth running of the work, from the planning phase through to delivery.

In addition, BIM data can also include building demolition data. This makes it easy to track the building's lifecycle to ensure smooth management.

Task optimization

3D BIM modeling optimizes workflows for every team. The system clearly identifies the tasks to be carried out and the tools required. It also makes it possible to determine the roles and responsibilities of each team member.

In addition to tracking project progress in real time, BIM modeling speeds up the execution of operations, from planning to completion.

Building sustainability

3D modeling combined with BIM data can be used for a variety of simulations. In particular, it can be used to carry out energy simulations aimed at improving the building's energy performance.

It also enables you to plan the necessary maintenance, helping to improve the building's performance throughout its lifetime. In this way, you can improve the building's durability and offer your customers maximum satisfaction.

Integrating BIM data into 3D modelling: a better brand image

Multi-disciplinary data integrated with 3D modeling can also be used to address your customers. They offer a considerable competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Customer confidence

3D modeling offers your prospects a realistic visualization of the real estate project. By adding more detailed information, they benefit from an advanced visualization of the project. They can better understand the space before construction even begins.

VEFA buyers can also follow the project's progress in real time if you make this information available on online platforms. Using this tool is a sign of transparency that strengthens the relationship of trust with your customers.

Competitive advantage

Adopting BIM technology is an effective strategy for raising your profile. It demonstrates your commitment to innovation and sustainability. These are increasingly sought-after requirements in the marketplace.

With BIM modeling, you can meet this growing demand and build customer loyalty. At the same time, you can improve the quality of your services, strengthening your position in the real estate market.
