To “BIM” or not to “BIM” –  The precast concrete industry challenge

Changing the way of work in the construction sector – part 1: the background


Increasing introduction of BIM methodology within the projects is such an excellent opportunity to precast concrete industry as a way to its definitive consolidation.

BIM is changing the way of work in the construction sector. The aim of this article, divided in two parts, is not to present BIM methodology in depth, but to give an overall vision of its current development, to foresee how will be the scenario in the upcoming years, and to remark that the growth of the precast concrete industry will be pretty connected with the success of BIM implementation within the companies.
