Building Information Modelling

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data during its life cycle.

Typically it uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamic building modelling software to increase productivity in building design and construction.

The process produces the Building Information Model (also abbreviated BIM), which encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components.

Purpose of BIM:

  • Design visualization
  • Reduction of Errors
  • Collision Detection
  • Quantity Take Off
  • 4D Constructability
  • 5D Cost Estimating
  • Asset/Equipment Inventory
  • Facility Operations
  • Space assignment
  • Maintenance/Repair
  • Emergency response, etc.

BIM Enabled Software:

  • ArchiCAD
  • Microstation
  • Navisworks
  • Model Cheker
  • VAD system
  • Revit
