BIM Software Keeps Construction Projects Running on Time
Building structures, whether they’re houses or commercial building or an entire development, takes a lot of effort — and time.
One single building project can involve designers, engineers, architects, and subcontractors spending hundreds of hours drafting the plans and executing the build. And while this type of collaboration has the potential to take a project to the next level, it can also be problematic without proper coordination.

With permanent modular construction (or PMC), you build with modules, so you spend 90% of the pre-construction time in the design and submittal phase. Of the remaining 10%, up to 95% can be completed in a factory-controlled setting. This makes the actual time on the job site extremely brief compared to traditional builds, but there are 5 crucial steps that need to be taken to make the construction process a success.
To avoid mistakes that can both cost you time and blow your budget, construction firms are focusing more and more on impactful pre-construction practices. Before even breaking ground, meticulous plans are put into place to keep your project on track from start to finish.
With any type of construction, meeting — or missing — a deadline can make or break a project. This is especially true with an off-site build, where efficiency and accelerated timelines are touted as major benefits. These benefits are often the reason the building method is chosen over traditional construction in the first place.
