BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING (BIM)

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).


Uses of 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).


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

Inform project planning by combining reality capture and real-world data to generate context models of the existing built and natural environment.

Design

During this phase, conceptual design, analysis, detailing and documentation are performed. The preconstruction process begins using BIM data to inform scheduling and logistics.

Build

During this phase, fabrication begins using BIM specifications. Project construction logistics are shared with trades and contractors to ensure optimum timing and efficiency.

Operate

BIM data carries over to operations and maintenance of finished assets. BIM data can be used down the road for cost-effective renovation or efficient deconstruction too.

Importance of BIMs

According to the UN, by 2050 the world's population will be 9.7 billion. 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 not only 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. This is why BIM mandates are increasing across the globe.


Architecture

Make better design decisions, improve building performance, and collaborate more effectively throughout the project lifecycle.


Civil

Use intelligent, connected workflows to help improve predictability, productivity and profitability.


Construction

Digitize your construction site and connect project information from design through construction and handover.


MEP

Improve MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) design quality and collaborate in real time to support the project delivery process.


Plant

Manage the design and construction of intelligent piping, structures, and processes more efficiently and collaboratively throughout project lifecycle and at hand-off.


Structures

Explore how structural design and detailing software helps you win new business and support project delivery.
