What Is BIM?

May 2019

What is Building Information Modelling (BIM)?

It is a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project lifecycle. One of the key outputs of this process is the Building Information Model, the digital description of every aspect of the built asset. This model draws on information assembled collaboratively and updated at key stages of a project. Creating a digital Building Information Model enables those who interact with the building to optimize their actions, resulting in a greater whole life value for the asset.

How can BIM helps you?

It assembles all of the information about every component of a building, making it possible for anyone to access that information for any purpose. Thus, the risk of mistakes or discrepancies is reduced, and abortive costs minimized.

BIM data can be used to exemplify the entire building life-cycle, from cradle to cradle, from inception and design to demolition and materials reuse. Spaces, systems, products and sequences can be shown in relative scale to each other and, in turn, relative to the entire project. And by signalling conflict detection BIM prevents errors creeping in at the various stages of development/ construction.
