From preconstruction to field execution: Why Estimators are an essential part of BIM?

It’s almost time for us to take flight for the ASPE Estimator’s Summit 2019 and while you are packing your bags and preparing yourself for the estimating week in Kansas, we are delighted to share more updates about our tech presentations at the Summit, so you don’t miss out!

Our take on BIM

Over the past few years, BIM has gained a lot of traction in the construction tech marketplace. Yet, there are some misconceptions and confusions about the role of BIM in construction and how it can help contractors and cost estimators.

As the construction industry focus on increasing productivity, digital process support grows. Hitherto this has mainly affected the design and engineering roles – but digital is moving into pre-construction. Fast.

The goal is to create an ecosystem where project information is shared across stages, so data generated can foster better collaboration when driving a construction project.  Sigma enables users to embrace the next level of 5D VDC workflows as it offers easy to use, and time saving options for users of any level to participate effectively.

Join us to learn the next step in the evolution of BIM – bringing 5D BIM into the workflow, connecting design, pre-construction and field execution with Magnus Therkildsen, our CTO and Co-founder as he presents on the topics ” The growing role of estimators with BIM” and “Going from what to how in construction” on Thursday, June 20th 2019 at the show.

In his talk, Magnus will show how BIM is affecting General Contractors in general and the cost estimator specifically, understand which tools you’re going to meet, where in the process they function, how it will affect your job and how should you improve estimating to grow with BIM.

What you’ll learn?

  • Connecting design, estimating, and field execution
  • Show and understand BIM360, Revit and Sigma
  • What to look for in your tool and how to transition without major investments or downtime
  • Show and understand Sigma with 2D and 3D
  • Align tools and data with roles in construction process
  • Discuss implementation considerations: Data import, training and support.

If you happen to be there, be sure to join Magnus for both presentations. You are also welcome to stop by and have a chat with team Sigma at our booth.

If you would like to get a demo or have a more in-depth discussion on what the solution can do for you, call us directly at 514-487-3317 or email ay@sigmaestimates.com.

Please note: We have a Sigma Summit Special competition going on from now until June 22, 2019 wherein users who sign up for Free Trial enter into a competition to win Sigma Enterprise free for 6 months loaded with a complete list of BNi cost data.
