BIM Model

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is more than just a 3D model.  BIM is a process of creating and managing building data throughout the building’s entire life cycle.  BIM encompasses not only the geometry and spatial relationships (i.e. the 3D model), but also features about the building such as the specific information about the type of materials used, the quantity used, and how those characteristics impact the building as a whole.  BIM can be thought of as a database of information ranging from project cost management to the “as-built” 3D model after construction on through the operation of the facility which can be used to actively manage the process every step of the way.

Some of the benefits of using BIM include:

  • Being able to more accurately determine job costing, scheduling and building efficiencies
  • Design & Pre-construction modeling for visualization purposes, as well as determining potential problems before costly design or construction has taken place
    (i.e. Clash Detection)
  • Interoperability amongst all disciplines involved in the building and management of a facility which can be updated in real-time
  • With the use of 3D laser scanning, ability to have highly accurate “as-builts” for facility management and future modifications to the building or troubleshooting
  • Facility management to operate and maintain a facility efficiently and cost-effectively
