Engineering & Construction (E&C): Modeling Integration Enables Optimized Execution

By Stephen Wyss, Bechtel Corp. |

As E&C companies strive to develop Building Information Modeling (BIM) 6D models for the owners and operators of CPI facilities, strong efficiency gains benefit all parties Truly transformational change is upon the engineering and construction (E&C) industry, and some consider the trends that are occurring today to be enabling the most significant evolution in history. Cumbersome document-based project execution is transitioning to robust, data-centric execution, as innovators seize opportunities in emerging technologies and ongoing expansion in cloud-based environments. E&C contractors that embrace, define and drive change will flourish, while those that dawdle will find themselves in the undesirable position of reacting to change. Several contemporary studies [ 1] document how E&C industry productivity has lagged over recent decades relative to other industries, and identify the catalysts that are driving this change. Collaboration is a dominant theme in the path to increased productivity. Opportunities for productivity-enhancing collaboration are presenting themselves in many spheres — regulatory, organizational and contractual. Of these, one of the contractual paths stands out — the path to BIM 6D. Once E&Cs…
