BIM is increasingly recognised and employed around the world by architects and project managers when designing new buildings and considering how they will be constructed and maintained. Three-dimensional computer modelling allows a 360-degree view of
any structure even before it is built, and allows for better project planning and to map out the construction and maintenance process in the virtual realm.
Now IPAF is in the process of developing scalable 3D BIM MEWPs and MCWPs that can be used to visualise their use in the construction of new buildings or the conservation, repair or maintenance of existing structures before work gets underway. This allows for easier selection of the correct type of machine as well as correct height and outreach so that managers can plan work more effectively, save money and reduce the risk of misuse on site.
