BIM and its necessity for Civil Infrastructure in South Africa!

Posted On 2021-07-23

Now that we’ve shown you how using a combination of design tools such as Autodesk Civil 3D, Infraworks, avisworks, and Devotech’s iDAS can help you design more efficiently, reduce time spent on rework, reduce errors and mitigate challenges associated with ineffective collaboration across projects. We want to take you a step further by looking at how adopting BIM-equipped solutions such as the tools mentioned above can help address some of the most common problems and issues experienced by civil engineering professionals in the South African industry.

These are:
1 – Increased Design Complexity: current practices are painful, manual, and inaccurate
2 – Design Errors: Arising from the inaccurate capture of existing conditions or design data
3 – Project Deadlines: Projects run over time and budget due to rework and revisions
4 – Collaboration: Effectively integrating and collaboration across multiple teams & disciplines
5 – Adopting New Technology: Moving from 2D to 3D BIM intelligent design
6 – Effective Project Management: Scheduling & forecasting
7 – Maintaining Profitability: Maximising production with existing resources & the right specialized people

If your goal is to mitigate these challenges and also become better, faster, leaner, and remain competitive – we recommend adopting the BIM way of working. Here’s why – BIM gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. The process of BIM supports the creation of intelligent data that can be used throughout the lifecycle of a building or infrastructure project.

In summary, the benefits associated with a BIM way of working far outweigh the risks, costs, and learning curve that come with adopting a newer approach to working. Therefore, your journey to digital transformation with BIM as your foundation should not be as daunting as it may seem. The time to make the change to BIM is now, and we at Baker Baynes are ready to help you make that change, today! Ready to know more? Email us on to learn more.
