BIM Vs Traditional Quantity Surveying And Its Future Mapping
Manish Nigam,  Abhishek Dixit,  Kshitij Kumar sachan
Over the past eras, growths of innovative technological concepts are promptly increasing, in order to achieve competitive productivity and performance. Building industry identifies technology as vital. Although the building industry is broadly identified as unique and conservative, at the same time construction industry has to have varied according to these innovative technological variations. In addition to that these technological variations may have potential to influence everyone’s professions in different ways. Although, the concept of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is slightly practiced in Indian construction industry yet, it is likely to become the project delivery standard in future. Introduce with the vision “sustainability by building smarter”, BIM will improve the performance of building professionals. The current knowledge does not adequately explain how the functions of a Quantity Surveyor are affected by BIM. This paper presents a study on comparative effectiveness offered by BIM for the traditional functions of a Quantity Surveyor. The study is interesting because the new knowledge will help to develop strategies for professional development and update the education curricula to train the Quantity Surveyors to. face future challenges. As a visual database of building components, BIM can provide accurate and automated quantification, and assist insignificantly reducing variability in cost estimates. Exchanging data is a challenging aspect of AEC information technology. BIM applications are evolving and standard formats to organize and share building information are far from fully mature as well.
