Building Information Modelling, or BIM for short, is a process that creates and manages information across a construction project lifecycle.
A key output is the Building Information Model, which contains a digitised description of every part of the built asset.
A BIM model uses collaboratively assembled information that is updated at pivotal stages of a construction project. Creating one enables the professionals who work on the building to optimise their input, resulting in an improved whole life value for it.
The UK construction industry is using BIM to undergo its own digital revolution. It is more than simply a way of working: it represents information modelling and management in a team environment, enabling all team members to work to the same standards. Seen from this perspective, BIM methodology uses the combined efforts of workers, process, and technology to create value.
How Can BIM Help?
BIM assembles all of the information about each building component in one place, making it possible for anyone on the team to access the information for any reason, such as more effective integration of the different design aspects. This approach reduces the risk of mistakes or discrepancies, saving money in the process.
