What do others think about our BIM Content Library Services?

“Hassell engaged IGS to reconfigure and QA a substantial library of Revit families so they could be incorporated into a project model for a large healthcare project we were working on. Rather than completing this work internally, Hassell contracted the services of IGS as the content needed to be updated in a very short period of time. By outsourcing to IGS our internal resources could continue working on project design and coordination tasks, without being ‘tied up’ doing content work. Given the size of the actual project, the amount of content involved and the need for families to conform to specific project standards, it was critical that all families were of an extremely high quality with consistency being a particularly important feature. IGS not only completed the work according to the project brief within the challenging project timelines, but also raised and rectified a number of additional inconsistencies and errors with numerous families, outside the project scope which was greatly appreciated. We would gladly work with IGS again in the future.”

Why Invest in BIM Content Libraries?

For AEC firms using Revit or ArchiCAD, extensive BIM content libraries that are developed to a consistent standard and specifically catered to creating quality project documentation are a highly valuable asset in the current commercial environment.

Conversely, an insufficient BIM content library, or one that is inconsistent in the way the content has been created, can be a major hindrance to adequately harnessing the efficiencies of BIM workflows. It can also have a significantly negative impact on their ability to compete against other firms who have superior content libraries and can produce better documentation, faster.

Most AEC firms have been gradually building their BIM content libraries over time without any overarching strategic plans or implemented and enforced procedures in place. Libraries comprising both ‘generic’ and ‘manufacturer-specific’ content have been contributed to by internal staff, external staff, manufacturers, BIM content websites (free and paid for) and ‘pilfered’ from project models.

FACT: few design firms believe they have ‘all their ducks in a row’ when it comes to their internal BIM content libraries. Significant opportunities for competitive gain exist for firms who can increase their design documentation efficiency and quality by improving their in-house BIM content.
