What is BIM? | Building Information Modeling

BIM is a model-based system for planning, organizing, designing, and managing buildings and infrastructures in the construction sector. The software gathers data and displays a realistic representation of structures and infrastructure before, during, and after development.

BIM software must assist construction industry professionals in completing the many activities required in building a structure in order to achieve its goals. It must, for example, make cooperation and communication easier, provide tools for turning theoretical ideas into actionable plans, and clarify how much each project phase will cost.

 

BIM is a concept that has been around since the 1990s. It integrates 4D (time), 5D (cost), and 6D (dimensions) in addition to 3D (depth, height, and breadth) (as-built drawings).

How Does Building Information Modeling Work?

BIM facilitates the generation of intelligent data that may be used throughout a building or infrastructure project’s lifecycle. Roads, canals, buildings, and other infrastructure are included in this generated 3D blueprint of a cityscape.

Plan:

To enhance project planning, include reality capture and real-world data into context models of the current elements of the built surroundings. A cityscape including roads, canals, buildings, and other infrastructure depicted in 3D.

Design:

Conceptual design, analysis, detailing, and documentation are all done at this phase. BIM data is used to inform scheduling and logistics in the preconstruction phase. A 3D rendering of a cityscape under construction, complete with roads, canals, buildings, and other infrastructure.

Build:

Fabrication begins using BIM standards during this phase. To guarantee maximum timing and efficiency, project construction logistics are communicated with trades and contractors.

Operate: 

The data from BIM is carried over to the operations and maintenance of completed assets. BIM data can also be used for cost-effective renovation and efficient deconstruction in the future.

Importance of Building Information Modeling

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is now an extremely valuable tool for architects, enabling us to involve customers, collaborators, as well as other stakeholders in the creation and implementation of built environments from the start, saving a lot of time while also guaranteeing that the final product meets everybody’s demands.

BIMCRONE is a solution that provides service at BIM Level 3, with the ability to access the digital contents of the building from a single environment. With its mobile version, it allows instant reception of construction site data and integration of all data with cloud infrastructure. It allows all users, from the construction site to the technical office, from the contractor to the top management, to access the same data with different authorities.
