Beating Out the Big Guys

How Small AEC Companies Can Stay Competitive with BIM Software


Globally, AEC industry revenue is projected to increase enormously in the next few years, as will the number of jobs open for bids. This is great if you run a well-established engineering firm, or if you work for a large precast company, but what about everyone else? Undoubtedly, smaller firms and precast plants will struggle to win out against their larger competition.

How can smaller companies compete? One answer is surprisingly simple: software. But not just any software, specifically, building information modeling (BIM).

BIM can help engineers & precasters:

  • integrate 3D into preexisting 2D workflows
  • detail reinforcement in 3D with automatic clash detection
  • automatically generate rebar charts, shop drawings & material take offs
  • calculate center of gravity
  • create lifting & handling reports
