BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING (BIM)

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that provides AEC professionals with every detail need to plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. BIM allows design and construction teams to work more efficiently, while enabling them to capture the data they create during the process.

WHAT IS BIM?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that begins with the creation of an intelligent 3D model and enables document management, coordination and simulation during the entire lifecycle of a project (plan, design, build, operation and maintenance). Of defining, creating and delivering structured data and documents. Making the right information available to the right person at the righttime. For the lifecycle of built environment assets.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF BIM?

The process of BIM supports the creation of intelligent data that can be used throughout the lifecycle of a building or infrastructure project.

  • Plan
  • Design
  • Build
  • Operate

WHAT IS BIM USED FOR?

BIM is used to design and document building and infrastructure designs. Every detail of a building is modeled in BIM. The model can be used for analysis to explore design options and to create visualizations that help stakeholders understand what the building will look like before it’s built. The model is then used to generate the design documentation for construction.

WHY BIM MATTERS?

The global AEC industry must look to smarter, more efficient ways to design and build not just as a means to keep up with global demand but to help create spaces that are smarter and more resilient too. BIM allows design and construction teams to work more efficiently, but it allows them to capture the data they create during the process to benefit operations and maintenance activities.
