What is BIM?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of objects used in the planning, designing, construction, operation, and maintenance of buildings. In other words, the full lifecycle management of a buildings and its components.

BIMs are computer files which contain holistic data exclusive to a specific component, which can be used for a variety of purposes including geometry for spacing calculations, power or safety ratings, declaration of standard conformity and more.

The benefits of BIM go far beyond planning and design phases, spanning the entire building life cycle. Due to the data held within BIM files, the record keeping of each component is much more efficient, improving accessibility, accountability, and project management.

This includes all phases of a buildings lifecycle from construction and project management through to facility operation and cost management and is ever increasingly relied upon to create ‘green buildings'.
