What is the BIM ?


BIM is a construction management tool that digitally combines all the components in a building and their relationships with each other on a 3D model.


BIM is the management of information through the whole life cycle of a built asset, from initial design all the way through to construction, maintaining and finally de-commissioning, through the use of digital Modelling. It’s all about collaboration – between engineers, owners, architects and contractors in a three dimensional virtual construction environment (common data environment), and it shares information across these disciplines.

Building Information Modelling allows design and construction teams to communicate about design and coordinate information across different levels that has been unseen before. This information remains with the project, from before beginning construction, right throughout its lifetime. It also helps to analyze any potential impacts.



  • It allows to identify problems that may occur in the later stages of the project before they occur at the design stage.
  • It allows all units working in the project to work synchronously and to progress the project process as a whole.
  • It minimizes the margin of error in the cost calculation phase.
  • It saves time and extra expense by preventing repetition of jobs.
  • It increases the efficiency and productivity of all units by making all the details of the project visible through architectural modeling and architectural visualization.
  • It stores the data in the project so that it can be used in later stages.
  • It facilitates the emergence and conclusion of the decisions that can be made regarding the project.
  • It allows a clear work flow for all parties by removing uncertainties.
  • It supports the minimization of possible waste and thus accelerates the increase of environmentally sensitive projects.
  • Ensures that government contracts are complied with flawlessly and smoothly.
