Create a More Efficient Process: Substation Design with BIM is Faster, Cheaper and Better Quality

By Arnold Fry, P.E.


Building Information Modeling, or BIM, is changing the way we design, construct, operate and maintain utility facilities and assets.
In this article, we’ll look at how using an efficient BIM workflow puts the latest advancements in technologies at the fingertips of the professionals responsible for each of those tasks. Using these modern technologies, they can access the documents, how-to manuals and other pieces of data and information they need, when they need it to do their jobs more efficiently and accurately. Consider the following benefits of using BIM:

The BIM philosophy has the potential to improve every aspect of the lifecycle of utility assets. BIM is an intelligent-model-based process that gives professionals the tools to more efficiently plan, design and construct facilities and infrastructure. Intelligent modeling means using software to make the best decisions based on the data available.
