The BIM Subcommittee will address current trends by owners, A/E firms, EPC firms and contractors using 3D design, and most importantly the cost & schedule gains by utilizing the 3D tools to their full potential.
The BIM Subcommittee will explore all elements of virtual construction solution including four elements: design (3-D), scheduling (4-D), cost (5-D) and project controls (6-D). These four elements are interlinked, but sufficient research has not been conducted to identify the - who, what where and when of this relatively new technology.
The BIM Subcommittee will seek technology information from vendors, but shall remain vendor neutral, and shall strive to promote best practices and CAD recommended practices, rather than promoting vendor specific products.
An important function of a subcommittee is the development of AACE recommended practices (RPs). These are peer-reviewed documents (usually < 10 pages) that define the specifics of particular methods or procedures, often derived from past papers and articles.
