Top five reasons not to bother about B.I.M. - article 4

"It's too complicated"

Virtechs’ ‘BIM Awareness and Understanding’ workshops are attended by delegates from a variety of different trades and professions and from a wide range of companies.

For me, one of the most gratifying aspects of delivering the workshops is seeing delegates becoming enthused about the future once they begin to understand my proposition that ‘BIM is an opportunity, not a threat’.

Inevitably, though, a small proportion of delegates respond negatively to the idea of change. Their resistance often manifests itself in the language they use and the reasons they cite for resisting change.

Here, then, is the fourth of the top five reasons I hear as to ‘why BIM won’t work’!

4. "It's too complicated."

B.I.M. is NOT all about software.

Sure, if you’re a design company you need to be thinking about the software tools you’re using and - just as importantly - the outputs and services you’ll be supplying to your clients.

But if you supply products, it’s simply not the case that you necessarily have to produce 3D BIM objects of your entire product range - there are other ways of communicating BIM data which you can learn about in our Workshops.

Interestingly, over the last twelve months the greatest upsurge in attendees to our Workshops has been from manufacturing businesses.

"Why not outsource the work...?"

Rather than investing in new technologies and training and trying to create Objects yourself, why not out-source the work? You may find in fact that there’s no need for you to create objects at all - for the time being at least - and, even if you do, you may find you already have useful data from elsewhere that can be modified or adapted.

Virtechs’ BIM Awareness and Understanding’ Workshops are delivered by knowledgable and experienced BIM practitioners with ‘real-world’ experience. The workshops cover a variety of relevant topics - remember, it’s not all about technology! - and, whatever your BIM knowledge or experience there is a workshop to suit you.

Our workshops are highly acclaimed; here are what some of our customers say about them:

“The BIM course was great, very informative and delivered at a level which helped even complete beginners like myself to understand how BIM works and how it relates to my role."

“I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave [Emery] to you not only as a person who is very experienced and capable in BIM but is also a pleasure to work with. It is pretty rare for me for me to be so effusive in a professional recommendation but in Dave’s case it’s entirely justified."


“I’ll come straight to the point: the feedback from our staff [about your BIM Workshops] has been first class."

“I have no hesitation in saying that Virtechs provide an excellent service, and is the best consultancy I have worked with."
