We are always asked - What is BIM?
BIM or Building Information Modelling the process of creating and managing information on a construction project throughout a projects full lifecycle. ... Utilising BIM the construction industry is undergoing a digital revolution. BIM is a way of working not a piece of software.
Using BIM allows for more work to be done by smaller teams,meaning lower costs and lesser miscommunications. Less time and money are spent in process and administration because of higher document quality and better construction planning.
BIM allows for flexibility, exploration and changes to the project design or documentation process at any time without major issues to the design team. This results in minimized coordination time and manual checking that enables the design team to have more time solving real architectural problems. Common modelling tools provide close control over technical and detailed decisions regarding design execution. The digital record of building renovations improves planning and management.
BIM enables design and documentation to be done concurrently. Scheduling, drawings, estimating, value engineering, planning, and other media are created whilst work is progressing.
