Building Information Modeling (BIM)
- A quarter of a million people left the housing construction industry from 2002-2012, and many of them have found employment elsewhere.
- Framers are feeling the effects of this exodus more acutely than most, prompting them to look for creative ways to do more with fewer people.
- CMs can play a pivotal role in switching framers from sticks to components by offering installation training and expertise to new framing employees.
- Inadequate communication can fragment the various trades working on a project and lead to costly mistakes and frustrating delays.
- GCs are looking to turnkey framing as a way to minimize that fragmentation and reduce waste and the potential for mistakes.
- The efficiencies of the turnkey approach with componentized framing make it the best solution going forward.
