Building Information Modeling

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process used by the Architecture, Engineering, and the Construction (AEC) industry to plan, design, construct and maintain buildings.


What is Building Information Modeling?


The centerpiece of BIM is the use of 3D modeling and 3D visualization to execute a range of tasks, including to detect clashes (e.g., where one part of the building may interfere with the other), determine energy efficiency, and others. It is also critical in enabling collaboration.

Why Building Information Modeling is Important

BIM is an established industry standard and increasingly adopted regulatory requirement. In a number of places, such as the UK, one’s bid for public infrastructure projects must include BIM.

Whichever way you cut it (industry best practice or government requirement), the point is that a growing number of AEC companies are taking on BIM.

How Does Building information Modeling Work?

It’s important to start with the understanding that BIM is, fundamentally, a process. It’s more of a way of managing a construction process than any single software suite.

By employing BIM, your end-user is seeking a set of capabilities, notably the ability to identify Collision Detection, interoperate with other stakeholders, document and view information about the building, accelerate time to market and reduce costs, and visualize in 3D.
