Building Information Modelling (BIM)

 

 

BIM is the process of generating and managing building data during its life cycle. Typically it uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamic building modeling software to increase productivity in building design and construction. The process produces the Building Information Model (also abbreviated BIM), which encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components.

BIM is an integrated process built on coordinated, reliable information specific to your project that starts with design and continues through construction and into operations. By adopting BIM, architects, engineers, contractors, and owners are performing tasks that are essential to every aspect of the project lifecycle:

 

  • Easily create coordinated digital design information and documentation.
  • Use the coordinated digital design information to more accurately visualize, simulate, and analyze performance, appearance, and cost.
  • Reliably deliver the project faster, more economically and with reduced environmental impact.
