Getting Real with BIM and GIS Integration
AEC Industry Blog
A well-known fact of the AEC industry is that data integrity must be guaranteed between every stage of the process — from planning, design, construction to operation when data are converted or moved between different platforms. On the other hand, when project stakeholders need data from an earlier phase of the planning process, they often have to re-create that information.
Therefore, we need a common data environment to directly read a range of data formats and offer a single source of truth for all stakeholders in a project. With the rise of GIS & BIM integration, we can see a Common Data Environment (CDE) is created in one holistic environment.
Engineers, architects, surveyors and constructors can now build smarter and more efficient infrastructure with the ArcGIS platform. ArcGIS helps AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) practitioners collect and analyze data from the field, understand impacts to the environment and improve communication with key stakeholders. Minimize costly delays for critical design decisions and leverage a single source-of-truth with the ArcGIS applications now.
Meet the needs of the project stakeholders in the most efficient, compliant and aesthetic manner.
Develop a complete solution with respect to form and function which fulfills the project’s program.
Prepare and execute against a project plan in a safe, predictable, cost & schedule conscious manner.
Manage the project post construction such that it fulfills its mission for the complete lifespan expected.
