There is a lot of interest that could be seen revolving around internet of things which for the world of physical object can be stated to be similar with the momentum which is experienced by BIM in case of AEC in 2000s. The internet of things has been able to impact each facet of any building and also none of the parts of the eco-system have been left untouched. In this particular blog we shall be examining and studying various ways in which IoT is influencing building ecosystem.
Various IoT and BIM possibilities
Building Information Modelling has been termed to be a process which provides intelligent 3D models for any building. BIM is generally used for modelling the structure of any building and also the system during the construction and design so that any changes in one plan gets automatically updated to all the impacted plans. Also, BIM may act as the catalyst in case of all smart building projects.
Once any building is into the running phase all the data from Internet of Things can be extracted in the BIM. That data may be used in modelling of things like providing energy usage patterns, movement of people in building and the temperature trends. All the outputs of the models can that be put to analysis for improvement in the building projects in future. Apart from the impact on construction and design BIM has various implications on management process of any building.
Construction of Green Project
It has been witnessed that construction industry is a great driver of landfill waste. This fact has attracted the movement towards sustainable construction and architecture. This has thus laid influence on the construction and engineering of any building which helps the building in reducing the effect on the environment using energy management. Thus, Internet of Things is being used to help the architects to build sustainable models which are designed and constructed using BIM as the application.
It is important to keep track of time to avoid unnecessary losses in terms of heavy equipments and also support backing up trades on site. This can be easily done using IoT in collaboration with BIM. Heavy equipments for construction are nowadays outfitted with various sensors which are allowed to be monitored in terms of key indicators for various maintenance issues including fluctuation in temperature, vibrations etc. While any such patterns are defined there is alert which is set to action which avoids critical equipment failures. Such performing of predictive maintenance can help in saving money and time and also avoid unnecessary delays in the projects.
