What is Building Information Modelling?
BIM is a smart 3D model which gives engineers, architects and contractors the insight and tools needed to be more efficient through the stages of; planning, designing, constructing and managing building and infrastructure. In other words, it’s a virtual information pack about a building project.
BIM is an excellent way of reducing risk at your site. It allows design and construction teams to prove their concepts before work even starts. Any issues that arise can then be solved before construction starts, reducing potential cost increases and delays.
How it works:
BIM models the entire building through time as well as space. It can show how materials from different suppliers can come together, step-by-step. As each element of BIM, known as a BIM object, comes with supporting technical data – architects can go above and beyond the traditional 3D abilities. The model doesn’t only check that the components fit together, but goes as far to prove they can all perform as a single unit to adhere to the required building regulations.
A BIM model can potentially last as long as the building itself. If changes or improvements are made to the building this can be added to the model, ensuring it is kept up to date. Better still, these changes can be tested with the model, before implementation, ensuring it is the correct decision to update.
We believe that BIM is the future of the construction industry as it provides a long-term thread of digital continuity which allows everyone, from architect to maintenance manager, to know their building inside-out.
