Building Information Modelling (BIM)

What is BIM?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a set of digital tools that can manage construction projects effectiveness. BIM is used to describe the process of planning and managing a major construction project through the creation and use of multi-dimensional digital representations of the physical and functional characteristics of a project. This allows for the effective visualisation of a project, thereby mitigating risk and aiding the fine-tuning of the design process.

Adding Values to Every Project

BIM reflects a smartly built environment. A smart building is not only equipped with smart technology, but is planned, designed, constructed, and managed in a transparent and efficient way, resulting in an increased economic value for stakeholders.

BIM is an essential pillar for reaching future goals of smart design and sustainability, raising living standards, higher labor productivity and prime energy efficiency on a truly global stage. BIM construction management can also further prove advantageous for your business through:

  • Saving your time and money – by tracing integrated 4D (time) and 5D (cost) information, the BIM model is a real-time, reliable and transparent project management tool.

  • Increasing efficiency and productivity – by integrating and connecting all specialty trades in one model, ensuring the compatibility of designers and reducing design faults and construction deficiencies.

  • Raising sustainability and operating standards – by simulating energy consumption or assuming dynamic in-house flows before physical establishments are in place, thus allowing for operation phase-oriented building design.

Making Well-Informed Decisions, Faster

BIM enables constant information exchange among architects, engineers, specialists, developers, contractors and other parties. It helps teams to make well-informed decisions faster, thereby achieving more effective and efficient design than if BIM had not been used.

Our use of BIM helps owners make decisions earlier in the design phase of the project. By making these decisions early, we are able to size the equipment properly and leave more space for the owner to rent or sell.

BIM can also be used for clash detection and to eliminate spatial conflicts, such as areas where the C&S, M&M and architecture designs call for equipment or component to occupy the same space.
