Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Technology is transforming the way that buildings and infrastructure are designed, constructed, and operated. And it’s helping to improve decision making and performance across the building and infrastructure lifecycle.

What is BIM?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the holistic process of creating and managing information for a built asset. Based on an intelligent model and enabled by a cloud platform, BIM integrates structured, multi-disciplinary data to produce a digital representation of an asset across its lifecycle, from planning and design to construction and operations.

Autodesk Revit

Includes features for architectural design, MEP and structural engineering, and construction.

What is BIM Used for?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is used for creating and managing data during the design, construction and operations process. BIM integrates multi-disciplinary data to create detailed digital representations that are managed in an open cloud platform for real-time collaboration. Using BIM gives you greater visibility, better decision-making, more sustainable options and cost-savings on AEC projects.

What is the process of BIM?


Inform project planning by combining reality capture and real-world data to generate context models of the existing built and natural environment.


During this phase, conceptual design, analysis, detailing and documentation are performed. The preconstruction process begins using BIM data to inform scheduling and logistics.


During this phase, fabrication begins using BIM specifications. Project construction logistics are shared with trades and contractors to ensure optimum timing and efficiency.


BIM data carries over to operations and maintenance of finished assets. BIM data can also be used down the road for cost-effective renovation or efficient deconstruction.
