Improving Construction Coordination Through the Use of BIM

Improving Construction Coordination Through the Use of BIM


We will explore the key benefits of Building Information Modeling in construction coordination and how it has transformed the way projects are conceived and executed.

“The impact that the use of BIM can have on a project can be measured, but only by trying it personally, although I believe it will always be positive.” – Josefina S., Architect

Is demonstrated that BIM is used in 68.9% of coordination and clash detection, revolutionizing the way construction coordination is approached.


  • BIM has simplified the complexity of coordinating various disciplines in construction projects.
  • It has the ability to anticipate and resolve interferences in the early stages of design, leading to time and cost savings.
  • Working with BIM models improves communication between multidisciplinary teams and facilitates effective collaboration throughout the project lifecycle.
  • The interoperability of BIM with others used in the market allows for a smooth transition and enhances project management precision.


The Impact of BIM on Simplifying Complexity

Building Information Modeling (BIM) has fundamentally simplified the complexity of managing diverse disciplines, revolutionizing the way interferences are anticipated and resolved in the early stages of design, leading to significant time and cost savings.

The ability of BIM to detect and address potential issues before they escalate into costly problems is a game-changer in construction coordination.

The importance of BIM methodology in construction coordination gives the ability to improve communication and collaboration between multidisciplinary teams is a key factor in streamlining project management and enhancing overall efficiency.

The use of BIM as a single source of information has unified and improved the transparency and traceability of information, making communication much more effective.


“BIM has redefined the way we approach construction coordination, bringing about unprecedented levels of efficiency and precision in project management.” – Priscila Deparsia


The Role of BIM in Enhancing Project Management

The interoperability of BIM with other softwares used in the market is a significant advantage in construction coordination. It minimizes resistance to change, a crucial factor in an industry where continuity is key, and facilitates collaboration with multidisciplinary teams.

In addition to improving communication and collaboration, BIM also prioritizes the protection of data and confidentiality. It establishes high standards for safeguarding information, including access levels, robust data backups, and role-based permissions.

BIM as Revit or Archicad, provides the capability to work in the cloud and access information remotely, further enhancing communication and collaboration.


Improved Communication

With the use of BIM, you can streamline the communication process and ensure that everyone is on the same page. Here are some ways in which BIM can improve communication in construction projects:

    • Real-time collaboration: BIM allows all stakeholders to work on a single, shared model in real time. This means that any changes or updates made by one person are immediately visible to everyone else.
    • Clash detection: BIM can automatically do clash detection between different elements of the building, this allows for early identification and resolution of problems.
    • Visualization: The 3D model of the building makes it easier for everyone to understand the design and identify any potential conflicts and also helps to improve communication between different disciplines.
    • Improved documentation: BIM can generate accurate and detailed documentation, such as construction drawings and schedules, directly from the model. This reduces the risk of errors or inconsistencies in the documentation.

Data Security 

BIM’s emphasis on data protection and confidentiality sets a new standard for information security in construction coordination. This ensures not only the confidentiality but also the integrity of project data:

    • Secure storage: it provides a secure platform for storing construction data, ensuring that sensitive information is protected from unauthorized access or loss.
    • Access control: it allows you to control who has access to the project data, ensuring that only authorized individuals can view or modify the information.
    • Data encryption: BIM uses encryption techniques to protect data during transmission, ensuring that it cannot be intercepted or tampered with.
    • Backup and recovery: BIM automatically backs up project data, providing a safety net in case of accidental deletion or system failure.
    • Version control: BIM keeps track of different versions of project data, allowing you to revert to a previous version if needed.
    • Audit trail: you can record all changes made to the project data, providing a detailed history of who did what and when.
    • Collaboration security: BIM enables secure collaboration among project team members, ensuring that sensitive information is shared only with those who need to know.

Compatibility of BIM with Traditional Software:

BIM is a methodology of work that is compatible with various software used in the market for construction coordination. The interoperability of BIM allows for a smooth transition and enhances project management, enabling teams to work seamlessly across different platforms and tools. This compatibility ensures that BIM can be integrated into existing workflows without major disruptions.


The Construction Planning with BIM

BIM’s impact on construction coordination extends to the planning and scheduling of projects. Its tools, such as 4D modeling, simulations, and real-time tracking, have fundamentally changed the approach to project planning and programming. The detailed visualization of construction sequences, simulation capabilities, and real-time monitoring improve decision-making based on up-to-date data.


“As an example, we can spend up to 80% of our time estimating costs just by counting materials. Knowing that time is money, BIM functions are an indisputable tool when it comes to relieving us of this task, as it automates the quantification process.” – Josefina S., Architect


The use of BIM methodology in construction coordination has brought about a new standard and redefined the way projects are conceived and executed. Emphasizing on communication has resulted in significant time and cost savings, making it an essential ally for successful construction coordination.



The use of BIM has had a transformative impact on construction coordination, bringing about unprecedented levels of efficiency, precision, and improved communication.

Its ability to simplify complexity, improve collaboration, and prioritize data protection has set a new standard for how construction projects are managed. By embracing BIM, the construction industry has redefined the way projects are conceived and executed, paving the way for a more streamlined and effective approach to construction coordination.
