PROPERTY AND FACILITY MANAGERS AND BUILDING ENGINEERS
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is the process of integrating intelligent three-dimensional models of various architectural, structural, and MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) products into a centralized model and managing building data throughout the building’s lifecycle. BIM can be done in preconstruction as well as in existing buildings.
As the industry keeps moving toward technologies that add project complexity and labor costs, the need to utilize BIM as a software productivity tool to improve business processes and ultimately, bottom lines, is key. BIM offers:
- Improved communication through lifecycle of project
- Improved productivity due to easy retrieval of information
- Increased coordination and communication of all trades
- Increased speed of delivery
- Reduced costs
