RCMS will announce the iBIM platform and launch the iBIM Review service offering. iBIM, (integrated Building Information Modeling), is an integrated platform that leverages BIM technology to convert paper drawings into relevant and useable building information. Additionally, users of iBIM Review will only require a freely downloadable viewer. The deliverable includes a 3D BIM model as well as an analytics package providing key constructability and quantity information to assist in mitigating project cost and schedule risk.
“The vision of iBIM is to provide the productivity and benefits of BIM to building projects of all sizes and types at a fraction of the cost. iBIM Review will allow our clients to utilize BIM technology on every project and share their deliverables, while still protecting their intellectual property,” says KP Reddy, President and CEO of RCMS Group.
While Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been in use for more than a decade, the additional expense of the computer modeling, as well as training of project team staff, has been a hindrance towards more wide-spread adoption of this major technology enhancement. RCMS has been experiencing explosive growth with the use of BIM, and expects even further acceleration with the availability of iBIM Review. Further additions to the iBIM platform will be announced later in the year.
“Owners are requesting BIM on large projects. With iBIM Review, they will demand it on projects of all sizes and types,” says Arnold Silverman, President and Chairman of Silverman Construction Management. “RCMS is truly executing on the vision of BIM, there should be no excuse to not use iBIM on every project.”
RCMS will be demonstrating iBIM at the AIA Expo at the Reed Construction Data show booth (Booth #15079, between the Stone & Tile and Lighting Pavillions) on the hour during the convention, May 15-17, 2008.
