What Is BIM

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure.

BIM can alleviate many of the business challenges that architects, engineers, construction professionals, and owners face by providing greater project insight earlier in the design and construction process to help them make more informed decisions.

On a project that takes advantage of BIM, information is coordinated and consistent, creating efficiencies throughout the project lifecycle. BIM also improves planning, cost forecasting, and project control—making it easier for teams to collaborate and communicate
