Building Information Modeling, or BIM, is spearheading the digitization of the construction industry by allowing contractors, architects and engineers to collaborate in real time on a construction project using the same database and digital model.
BIM is more than a tool, it is a way of working. BIM is driving a digital transformation that will revolutionize the way we design, plan and build complex projects.
The “I” in BIM stands for “information” that can be exchanged between different team members in a shared, cloud-based environment. From planning and design to construction and operation, the various stakeholders can capture all the physical and functional characteristics and relationships of a project in a 3D model. This data can then be viewed and updated in real time, enabling much more efficient and complex collaborations. All this can be done while ensuring data confidentiality and security.
