Research paper on BIM and the reduction of waste

Moreover, BIM contributes to the reduction of waste (Messner, et al., 2006). The reduction of waste occurs due to the efficient planning and project development. If there is no need in redesign and changes, while the efficiency of the building is high, then the waste is minimal. BIM creates conditions for such minimisation of waste because BIM helps to construct efficient buildings with high level of energy-efficiency, well-developed infrastructure adapted to needs of the building owner. Therefore, the waste reduction occurs not only at the stage of the construction of the building but also in the course of maintenance and even demolition of the building. In addition, BIM lays the foundation to the continual improvement since, in the course of the implementation of the project, the project team feeds back the information about the performance of processes and items of equipment, driving improvements on subsequent projects.

III Conclusion and recommendations

Thus, BIM opens new perspectives for planning and development of construction projects which involve all stakeholders and allow them to communicate and interact efficiently. In fact, BIM has a number of benefits, such as low costs, high efficiency, minimal loss of time and resources, the reduction of waste, and others. These benefits are crucial because they contribute to the customer satisfaction, reduction of conflicts between stakeholders and make the construction and further maintenance and demolition of buildings environment-friendly. Therefore, BIM can improve consistently the quality and efficiency of construction.

In this regard, it is possible to recommend implementing BIM wider in the contemporary construction industry. Customers as well as constructors and designers should have more information on BIM and its benefits. Consequently, training courses for designers and other professionals working in the construction industry should include the detailed analysis and study of BIM, its critical evaluation and study of its benefits.
