As in so many other sectors, the pharmaceutical industry is in the midst of a
profound digital transformation, driven by the adoption and integration of advanced technologies that are redefining how projects are conceptualized and carried out.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is no longer a promise of the future, but rather a
a consolidated reality that has proven its ability to revolutionize efficiency and profitability in the development of pharmaceutical plants.

However, despite its clear advantages, it has not yet been adopted in all projects.

In the following, we will analyze the reasons behind the growing relevance of BIM and the
multiple advantages it offers to the pharmaceutical sector.

Benefits of BIM in Pharmaceutical Plants



Full Integration and Data Convergence

BIM stands out for its ability to integrate all the information and disciplines of a construction project, facilitating the management and identification of interfaces throughout the building’s life cycle.

This convergence of data between digital assets and manufacturing analytics is a crucial step in the digital transformation of the industry, enabling a holistic view of the building and facilitating the interfaces and interferences of a project.

Reduction of Errors and Time

BIM generation automates and links various elements such as plans, sections, digital (3D) models and quantitative materials, resulting in a significant reduction of errors and project time.

This automation not only optimizes the construction process, but also facilitates an orchestrated digital delivery, thanks to structured data that becomes easily exploitable.

Dynamic and Improved Communication

The BIM model fosters dynamic communication between the disciplines involved.
in the project, allowing all changes and interferences to be visualized in the same model.

This not only reduces project time and construction costs, but also significantly improves communication between all parties involved, reducing the need for rework and ensuring greater compliance.

Sustainable Design

BIM is a powerful tool for promoting sustainable design, facilitating the creation of solar, energy and thermo-acoustic comfort studies, which are essential for environmentally responsible projects.

This focus on sustainability is not only beneficial for the environment, but can also result in significant savings in the long term.

Innovation in the Pharmaceutical Industry

The adoption of BIM is fostering a wave of innovation in the pharmaceutical industry. Companies that have opted for BIM have experienced notable improvements in project quality and time, as well as an increase in client satisfaction, who can visualize and interpret the project in its entirety.

Data Accessibility and Democratization

BIM has also proven to be a valuable tool in facilitating accessibility and
democratization of data. For example, it has been demonstrated that a complex digital asset can be read on a smartphone, facilitating the navigation of spatial information in an intuitive way.

This, in turn, enables a more seamless connection of “sources of truth,” ensuring that digital transformation strategies are built with legacy systems rather than against them.

Predominant Future

Looking ahead, it is clear that BIM is destined to dominate in the area of construction projects, especially for companies that are in constant search of innovation, technology and quality.

This tool promises to facilitate greater integration between architects, engineers and suppliers in all areas of construction, setting a new industry standard.

The advantages of using BIM in pharmaceutical plant development are obvious.

From fully integrating information to facilitating dynamic and enhanced communication, BIM is helping to transform the pharmaceutical industry, enabling greater efficiency, reducing errors and costs, and promoting more effective collaboration between project stakeholders.

In this context, BIM stands out as a vital tool in the digital transformation of the pharmaceutical industry, promising to take innovation and efficiency to new levels.

At Global Facilities Group, we have fully embraced the BIM methodology, integrating it into the coordination of all phases and aspects of our projects.

This adoption allows us to guarantee a more efficient, accurate and collaborative management of every construction detail. In doing so, we not only optimize our internal processes, but also generate a significant benefit for our customers.

By relying on BIM, we are committed to delivering projects of the highest quality, ensuring that every decision made is backed by accurate data and a comprehensive view of the project. This is our promise of excellence and our commitment to innovation for the benefit of those who trust us.
