In the following six points I’ll try to summarize as the BIM and Cloud offer to the designers the tools for a more efficient project management that can also to efficiency subsequent stages: construction and operation.
The economic crisis and the digital innovation are greatly determining the transformation process underway in the construction industry.
The new digital processes, as it is already occurred for other sectors, provide an important opportunity for the entire construction industry, in particular the designer can most to gain because from the “project”, on which depend quality and costs, will be place increasingly at the center of the value generation.
The designer through this new opportunity may be able to improve and integrate its “value proposition”, not only in the initial phase of the project but to the whole process of management and coordination of the entire building life cycle: planning , design, construction and management.
The strong changing, initially led by the Building Information Modeling, is now in place and is no longer stoppable, nevertheless, should not be placed solely in the restricted environment of technological innovation, but must be perceived and experienced as an opportunity for a review of the relations between all stakeholders in the supply chain ranging from commissioning to final users of the building well.
1) BIM will be increasingly requested by your customers

BIM is not a software: it is a methodology and a collaborative approach applicable to the entire construction industry that offers significant benefits in all phases of the lifecycle of a work.
In countries where the BIM has a higher level of adoption, for example in Northern Europe, this methodology is increasingly in demand by customers because it allows greater control of the work in all its life stages.
And likely that in our country in the coming years this will be significantly also due to the recent European directives and as a result of what is contained in the new Code of Discipline of the recently approved contracts.
BIM will also increasingly required by the private sector because it allows the owner greater quality control, cost reduction and compliance with deadlines.
The most important customers and pubblic administration are seeking designers and manufacturers can handle BIM contracts.

2) A new opportunity: become a BIM Manager
BIM Manager is the new profession that oversees and is responsible for all activities related to BIM proper conduct of the project activities, construction and management of the buildings according to the specifications defined by the customer for all operating phases of the contracting authority.
BIM allows you to significantly increase the overall value of the project, all the valuable information contained in the BIM project acquire a much greater value in the later stages allowing you to better manage the later stages of construction and management of the building.
Enrich your professionalism taking the leading role of the entire process of planning, design, construction and management of the building to be carried out.
3) The project at the center
The designer by definition arises at the beginning of the processes that trigger the building’s creatio, he is the figure that most of all contributes from the beginning, the smooth progress of the work in its entire life cycle building.
The information contained in the BIM model allows the designer, if properly managed, to become the starting point of the entire value chain and become the key factor and determined to achieve the final goals: the building’s quality and return on investment.
BIM allows you to return to center of the stage
4) BIM helps to define roles and responsibilities
The implementation of a BIM project must plan in a clear and unambiguous way roles and responsibilities for the entire project team.
A shared model of the tasks and activities is assigned to each team member, this allows to the project manager to always have all the information he need to immediately understand if and what was planned initially corresponds to time and the current state of the project costs.
BIM means more control and lower costs
5) BIM and cloud a winning choice
BIM has as main objectives the respect of the quality of the work, lowering costs, reducing risk of rework, always these were the challenges that designers and his team have been called to manage.
The use of BIM and cloud throughout the lifecycle of the building permit precisely to respond to these challenges.
The BIM data thanks to the Cloud tecnology are always available on line at any time and at any place and allow you to have complete control of the operation.
6) Concentrate on what you do best: the project
Deadlines, delivery dates, issue tracking can be added to the BIM model in order to monitor the progress of work and, therefore, make sure that all activities are completed within the assigned deadlines.
All this translates into a reduction of the project costs and more time on your part to improve the quality of your work and gain new business opportunities.
Building in the Cloud is the new way to create, share and manage all the information of a building in an BIM environment.
Building in the Cloud is a cloud sharing and collaboration platform that allows you to manage your projects and your team by exploiting the power of building information modeling.
