WHAT IS BIM ?
BIM, or Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent and adaptive 3D model-based process that gives architects, engineers, and construction professionals the insights, option to plan & see its effect and tools to more efficiently and safely plan, design, engineer, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure, over the full life-cycle of the project from drawing-board to construction and maintenance.
A BIM (Building Information Modeling) involves creation of parametric, relational, Intelligent, dynamic and real-time, 3D models instead of 2D perspective drawings. A BIM is based on a digital database and any change made to this database is reflected throughout the entire drawing/ 3D Model. This allows everyone involved in the building lifecycle – architects, engineers, contractors, developers, and building owners – to sync together allowing them to view the model in different ways and seamlessly share information.
There are many BIM objectives, and they are inherent to the successful implementation and execution of the project :
- Conception, planning and project management
- Precise setting, and available to all actors
- Collaboration of engineers, architects and companies
- Data centralization
- Relevant information shared
- Project analysis
- Real time cost estimation
