Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that begins with
creating an intelligent 3D design model and then uses that model to
facilitate coordination, simulation, and visualization, as well as
helping owners and service providers improve how buildings and
infrastructure are planned, designed, built, and managed.
BIM can alleviate many of the business challenges that architects, engineers, construction professionals, and owners face by providing greater project insight earlier in the design and construction process to help them make more informed decisions. On a project that takes advantage of BIM, information is coordinated and consistent, creating efficiencies throughout the project lifecycle. BIM also improves planning, cost forecasting, and project control – making it easier for teams to collaborate and communicate.
BIM (Building Information Modeling) helps AEC professionals across industries improve the way they design, construct, and operate buildings and infrastructure projects.
