BIM-Based Estimating for Dummies.mp4

There are many advantages to the construction estimating workflow with 5D BIM. Perhaps the greatest advantage is visualization of the target costs alongside multiple design options enabling target cost driven design. Another advantage is how easily past project data can be brought into the estimate – so that even an early massing or conceptual model can have an advanced level of statistically probable estimate detail which can also provide early and accurate scheduling, then validate those assumptions as the design develops. This video illustrates how an estimator would create, maintain, and evolve a cost plan while receiving models from multiple sources from the design team and subs and then visually communicate the impact on the estimate to the Owner, designers and all project stakeholders during the pre-construction phase.
