Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Building Information Modelling is the process of constructing an intelligent, data rich, three dimensional (3D) model of a building or an infrastructure project.

Introduction to Building Information Modelling (BIM)

BIM can be applied to both 'new build' and refurbishment projects. The digital information in the 3D model can be used to inform the decision making and management processes throughout the lifecycle of a built asset.

BIM uses a collaborative approach to the design, construction and asset management of a project. 

The collaborative process reduces opportunity for error and waste which ultimately leads to cost savings for the client.
