At Jigsaw Solutions we are busy working with our Electrical Contractor Partners to assist them in realizing the benefits of BIM. In addition, we are helping them tap into the efficiency BIM can bring to their projects. With the recent trends in lack of workforce, BIM can enhance their ability to pre-fab much of their work for a more efficient install. While we are focused on bringing value to our clients, we don’t want to forget about those contractors that have yet to embrace BIM as part of their construction workflow.
For those contractors that are still tiptoeing on the edge of the BIM waters, here is some information you might find helpful. An article from Marketsandmarkets.com said that:
“the building information modeling market was valued at USD 5.4 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 10.7 billion by 2026.”
Similar articles identify BIM (Building Information Modeling) as not just a fad but as a tool that is becoming an engrained piece of construction. Large to mid-sized projects are becoming more and more difficult for sub-contractors that are unable to utilize BIM services, to be a part of. This trend will continue to make it more difficult for resistant contractors to grow their business.
We have helped many contractors to qualify for these projects and have taken away the concern of providing these services in-house. We partner primarily with Electrical Contractors to handle the BIM effort of a project for them. We work closely with your team in the field to coordinate the project. We keep your workflow and best practices in mind. We have developed great relationships with many General Contractors, who have referred us to Electrical Contractors that lack the ability to perform BIM for their projects.
Jigsaw has transitioned many Electrical Contractors into the world of BIM. We know there are many more looking in from the outside. We wanted to step out of the trenches for this article and encourage those still hesitant contractors to embrace the technology and realize the benefits that others are seeing from having Building Information Modeling as an integral part of their workflow.
Please reach out and let us know how we can help you!
