The year 2020 challenges the world in all sectors of activity, especially since the appearance of the COVID-19 virus.
Health care workers are overworked and spend many hours caring for the sick population. In this context, it is essential to rely on the construction and development of health systems but also to be able to ensure good medical equipment.
BIM and the trades that add value to the construction industry are essential in today's health care environment. They are useful in reducing costs, speeding up the building construction process and delivering higher quality projects through collaboration and real-time visualization. Architects can more easily communicate with trades such as structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing to shorten design times and increase results.
Advanced technologies allow healthcare personnel to visualize the structure and layout of hospital facilities in a digital environment. All the systems of patient protection, accessibility to medical devices and organization of personnel are issues that can be thought through before construction.
The information concept of BIM promotes coordination between design, construction and medical staff by connecting data and centralizing it on collaborative platforms that help prepare for medical operations.
The requirements of health standards are assessable and influence the design of the building and the layout of the medical facilities. The added value of technology is to be able to anticipate the constraints and establish a project that respects them. Global healthcare spending continues to increase by 5% through 2023 and the need to build sustainable and efficient facilities is essential to prepare for any future incidents.
The current health situation and periods of confinement have changed the way ACS companies work. Indeed, the displacements being reduced and the physical contact being discouraged even prohibited, the communication and the collaboration between the workers on the spot and the office staff had to evolve. Collaborative platforms such as ATIS.cloud play an indispensable role to ensure the balance and the stability of the sector. The stakeholders of a construction or renovation project are invited to work together by organizing meetings in virtual reality for example. They can evolve around clouds of points or 3D models by sharing information in real time concerning their project and by distributing the tasks to be realized to optimize the progress of work.
This health era is an opportunity to develop more solutions to the problems that have slowed down certain developments in the fields of activity. It is a question of being able to optimize the use of the technological tools which are placed at the disposal of the companies in order to widen the ranges of possibilities and to take advantage of the advanced functionalities to develop.
