BIM for Contractors and Subcontractors

2020 accelerated the need for technology, and 2021 will be an inflection point for the construction industry, an opportunity for transformation.

Driving Vision cannot predict the future but with our partners we can help you prepare for what is next. As we enter the next decade of construction, only one thing is certain, more change is coming.

As you are planning for the future, questions are inevitable. Get in touch with us we may have the answer, if not we will find it for you!

Driving Vision believe that that BIM is not only associated with design and preconstruction, but it also benefits every phase of the project life-cycle, even well after building is complete. Building Information Modelling allows projects to be built virtually before they are constructed physically, eliminating many of the inefficiencies and problems that arise during the construction process.

BIM works for any type of project, large or small, infrastructure, buildings, renovation, landscape, private or public.

We identify your needs, design a bespoke BIM implementation plan, facilitate co-ordination between all participants, provide you with the correct technology and offer support throughout.

Key Challenge

Maintaining schedules and good communication

Driving Vision's change management expertise and automated processes helps you deal with change orders and safety tracking, allows simultaneous information sharing, reduces data silos, and improves communication across all stakeholders.

Driving Vision help your management team to set goals for fully implementing BIM and make sure that these goals are understood by every team member, planned for, and delivered, to facilitate:

Key Challenge

No standardised processes

The construction industry uses and generates huge quantities of data. Data might be generated by a very wide variety of sources.

An external partner can help. Driving Vision helps you to streamline your processes and manage your data to:

Key Challenge

It is difficult to manage change

Change orders are common to most projects, and quite common on large projects. After the original scope (or contract) is formed, complete with the total price to be paid and the specific work to be completed, a client may decide that the original plans do not best represent their definition for the finished project.

Driving Vision's collaborative approach help you to:

The benfits of BIM


Improve onsite collaboration and communication. Cloud based PC's allow project teams to take the office to the field.


More effective construction cost estimation by including estimators earlier in the planning stage.


Visualise projects in preconstruction before the shovel hits the ground.


Better Coordination and Clash Detection BIM allows you to better coordinate trades and subcontractors, detecting any MEP, internal, or external clashes before construction begins reducing the amount of rework needed on any given job by avoiding clashes.

Mitigate risk and reduce cost. McKinsey found that 75% of companies that have adopted BIM reported positive returns on their investments.

These benefits are available to all types of contractors and subcontractors on almost all types of projects. Driving Vision research demonstrates that in general companies have embraced BIM as a tool but are not fully aware of the BIM requirements in the delivery process, the selection of service providers, and the approach to projects necessary to fully realise BIM’s benefits.

What is BIM?

BIM is a way of working together it gives you the ability to scope, plan, design, track, view, construct, and maintain your projects in an environmentally friendly way. Find out more

All stakeholders in a project can access a huge volume of data simultaneously, creating a complete digital description of a building project in a single, always updated file. The model is built up using a library of standard objects.

The use of automation in BIM gives you time to consider the sustainability of the project. It enables designers and planners to create more cost and schedule scenarios in a fraction of the time, allowing them to think more creatively about new sustainability solutions.

BIM moves documentation and designs out of a ring binder into a digital space, making collaboration, visualisation and decision making transparent and timely, through automated and integrated processes.

To get the most out of BIM you have to invest in employee training. At Driving Vision, we understand that getting the most out of your BIM tools is not easy but with the right training you can enjoy 24% higher profit margin versus companies who don’t invest in people training.
