These days, a growing number architects, engineers
and contractors are using BIM. And here's why Global trends are making AEC projects more
complex, while advances in technology are helping industry professionals work
more efficiently and effectively. This is where BIM comes in. BIM is an intelligent model-based process
that connects AEC professionals so they can more efficiently
design, build and operate buildings and infrastructure through BIM, or Building Information Modeling.
With BIM, designers create digital 3D models that include data associated with physical and functional characteristics. The power of BIM is how it allows architects,
engineers, and contractors to collaborate on coordinated models, giving everyone better
insight into how their work fits into the overall project, ultimately helping them
to work more efficiently. The data in a model defines the design elements,
and establishes behavior and relationships between model components. So, when an element in a model is changed, every
view is updated with the new change appearing in section, elevation, and sheet views.
You can use the information in the model,
to improve your design before its built. Gain faster buy-in and approvals with realistic
visualizations Convey design intent to the field And, most importantly, retain model intelligence
from concept to construction. BIM provides insight into a designs constructability,
improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the construction phase, and also providing
a better understanding of the buildings future operations and maintenance. Owners can use BIM for predictive maintenance,
asset tracking, and facilities management, and for future renovation or deconstruction
When you work with BIM, youll experience
reduced project risk, improved timelines and cost savings, and better project outcomes. And the power of BIM is growing with cloud-connected
technologies that let project teams design and work together in all-new ways. Driven by global trends, the AEC industry
is in a time of transformation. Businesses that want to win more work, deliver
projects more efficiently, and design better buildings need a powerful solution.
And that solution is BIM..
