In recent years, the function of general contractors are simplified to larger extent, goes all the credit to Building Information Modelling. Most of the tasks done by general contractors and Sub-contractors have its perfect solution/aids in BIM provided some leading service provider for instance, Autodesk Navisworks, Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD and Autodesk Building Design Suite (BDS) to name the few. 3D, 4D and 5D BIM are useful for general contractors. At 3D BIM, the clear and accurate visual 3 dimensional images simplified the work and avoid the reworking which happens due to clash detection. Contrary to that, 4D Building Information Modeling deals with on-site construction activities leads to keep the contractors updated about the day to day action of practical work while the 5D Building Information Modeling (probably the most beneficial) manages the financial aspect of construction project to avoid the unnecessary wastage of money. Due its worldwide adoption in the countries like US, UK, Middle East and Australia, it has set a global standard for all the users related to Architectural, Engineering and Construction Industry.

Building Information Modelling unravels the exertion of contractors in major ways because the overall responsibility of coordination between construction, accounting, information processing, cost estimation and scrutiny of on –site development is handled by general contractors. When managing multiple areas it is very natural tendency to need a technology that unburdens the work load in comprehensible manner. The BIM is helpful and advantageous in many ways which was not possible a decade ago. Some of the major benefits of Building Information Modeling (BIM) gained by general contractors and sub-contractors in nutshell are:
Hence, Building Information Modelling is a boon for contractors which is useful in maximum ways and provide an efficient work rate. Due the multi-functional quality of BIM, it is rapidly gaining the popularity in construction industry.
