With those utilities and possibilities we have today, 3D-models should be usted more
than they are. The posibilities to work further with these models are enormous.
The purpose with this report is to investigate why the BIM technology isn’t used to
its fully potential in the construction industry. And also to investige the posibilities to
implement the technique further by interconnecting the 3D-model to more
information consisting of 4D-BIM and 5D-BIM. By a comparison between the real
estate industry and the construction industry produce solutions that can be implied in
the construction industry.
The methods that have been used in this operation is a study of literature and
interviews of experts in the industry. Based on these methods the author has
concluded several reasons why 5D-modeling is so limited as it is. This area is rather
undiscovered, few in the industry even thinks of this as a problem, or an area that
needs improvement, so the investigation in the area is very limited. Besides, the time
it takes for a person to learn a new working progress is time the person often doesn’t
have. Plus that the new is frightening, the time it takes to learn the new way is
unknown and the time it takes to imply it in the projekt is unknown. The way you’ve
always worked is safe and you know approximitly how long it’s going to take.
One thing that is notable in the construction industry is that the demands from the
clients is starting to appear and the competens of the contractors doesn’t exist. And
there is a fatal chans that the demands will increase much faster than the development
of competens in the industry. For the industry to keep develop in the right pace, the
industry must dare to invest in 5D-modeling. By giving priority to learn a more
efficient way of working, by daring to invest economically in software and education of
competens and to look at these costs as an investment in the future and not a cost
for the ongoing projekts.
