The main challenge with outsourcing Revit modeling services is finding out which BIM project types are
worth subcontracting with minimal number of communication cycles and quick setup of the workflow.
Here's how you can solve that problem...
Subcontracting tasks and not complete projects. Focusing on the tasks that are "online friendly".
You have prepared a BIM project to send out, sorted out the communication and technical sides of your BIM
workflow, tested your Revit consultant or subcontractor with a sample project. Congrats, because that’s
already half the battle won with outsourcing Revit modeling Services.
But I would bet the results coming back are not what you had hoped for. Even worse, the Revit files are
probably full of errors and information that has nothing to do with the scope. What could be wrong?
Many things of course, but if you don’t want to make a science out of the process, or simply don’t have
months on hand to sort out all the nuances of subcontracting Revit projects from start to finish, there is a
much easier and more reasonable alternative you should consider.
The gist of it? Stop sending out complete project phases to your subcontractor. It takes substantially more
time and effort to train someone all the required codes and workflows than it takes to do what we describe
as task based BIM subcontracting. Task based BIM subcontracting is a process which boils down to selecting
few tasks tested for repeat-ability and quality, that actually pay off when you use outsourced Revit
The result is your supercharged in house BIM team with a capacity to handle larger projects and new energy
gained by eliminating dull repetitive Revit BIM tasks. At ArchiJOY, we took over 10 years of experimenting
in this field as a reference and perfected the concept of packaged BIM services or tasks that can be easily
As you can see, the idea is to eliminate the need for endless email pushing, Skype calls and rework of the
delivered product known as the BIM model.
This method saves a lot of highly valued time for engineers and architects, but it has one drawback as well.
Only a limited variety of tasks can be automated in this way. On a positive note, the list is expanding as
the industry evolves together with digital tools and collaboration services.
Your in house architect is detailing wall sections of a typical wooden house that already went through the
hands of a structural engineer and has main elements dimensioned. It would probably take him half an hour to
detail one section. If there are 5 section types, but hundreds of them in total, math and economy suggests
this is a task worth subcontracting to qualified person with a lower pay grade.
