Building Information Modelling, or BIM, is an integrative, digital approach to project management in the construction sector. It enables the digital visualisation of all architectural, technical, physical and functional construction data to create an intelligent digital building data model – the BIM model.
Everyone involved in the project can access this BIM model at any time and from anywhere. BIM is not only used in the cost estimation and construction planning phase, it also offers benefits during construction, interior fitting, marketing the property and even in subsequent facility management. It provides a comprehensive overview of almost all phases of the project life cycle.
