The construction industry is expanding exponentially.

As per UN report, 54% of the population around the world has already moved to urban areas and these stats are going to increase to 66% by 2050.
To make enough room for everybody in an urban locality, government bodies and private sectors are challenging the real estate industry to provide facilities such as hospitals, educational institutes, accommodation and much more, efficiently along with the pre-planned vital utilities and transport facilities.
The cost of natural resources used in the construction process is getting more expensive like timber, fuel, natural gas etc. In the limited budget, architects are pressurized to create a sustainable plan which would keep the cost of the project in check as well. The competitive environment results in increasing complexity of the project. It is strongly observed that most of the construction projects are delayed from its deadline and exceeded from its agreed budget.
The common reason for this is poor communication among various teams working on the project. Project managers are facing such economic and industrial hurdles in achieving maximum productivity. We have addressed five important areas which would help you in enhancing your project’s efficiency and productivity.
Relying on two-dimensional designs
The importance of 2D CAD tools is immense in the industry. Though they lack at helping quick prototyping or concept designing of the project. This makes the designers feel trapped in a limited environment which doesn’t let them experiment and explore. On the other hand, 3D modeling and 3D renderings let architects, designers, and stakeholders explore the design intelligence and spot the errors at the design stage which obviously help in saving unnecessary expenses at the later stage.
Creating designs using scattered teams with no communication
Lack of co-ordination in architectural designs leads to unnecessary loss of money and time. The project only frames into shape when all drawings come together. Does it make sense to design them separately? Teams working remotely should come together virtually and share their ideas and design at the central point to avoid confusions. This should happen in the earlier stages of the designing process which saves the time for designers and stakeholders. Stakeholders should provide feedbacks and corrections timely to ensure that designers are on the same page as them.
Lack of reality
Simply designing the building won’t be enough, as the stakeholders want to see the whole project design with the realism in it. Conventional topography is a very good option, but conducting this survey and then using its data to create design would take time. Many firms use the technique called LiDAR (Light detection and ranging), this enables the designers to know the exact distance information of the building and environment using laser light and reflection sensors. Designers and architects can also incorporate the data from geospatial, photography, surveys, photography etc to further enhance the quality of the 3D architectural visualizations of the project.
Lack of presentation
Renderings would look inspiring or uninspiring with the bad presentation techniques such as without environmental data or discoloration. Detailed 3D renderings would create more compelling design visualization which gives an opportunity to the client to experience it in a better way.
3D designs can be presented by overlaying it on the models of the current conditions to depict the future building. This can be further enhanced by using the virtual reality where architectural walkthroughs help the designers to walk around the design prior to the actual construction starts. Obviously, it saves unnecessary loss of time and cost on the project.
Lack of communication
For the success of the project, it is mandatory to keep clear communication among designers, project managers, stakeholders and every important person who directly or indirectly take decisions in the construction process. Without proper communication, project managers are taking the high risk of running the project over time and a fixed budget. There are various collaborative tools available in the market which allows the stakeholder to access the designs from every angle. This lets them solve issues at the early stage of the project.
