Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an innovative methodology that revolutionized how construction projects are conceived. BIM can be used throughout the entire building lifecycle, from the initial phases of project design to the building demolition phase. Nevertheless, several BIM application possibilities are still not widespread in the market. Many professionals worldwide are still limited to using BIM-based tools to generate virtual models for geometric representation and rendering.
BIM is advantageous in centralizing all data in the same three-dimensional model, allowing different analyses and simulations to be carried out. This will enable professionals to reduce costs, detect design errors, and track building timelines, among other possibilities.
- The BIM methodology is not tied to a specific computational application. In fact, it is a working methodology and a new way of thinking about construction projects.
- BIM can improve the project decision-making process, minimize project errors, and improve communication between parties.
- Using BIM integrated with other concepts can help create a smart and sustainable built environment.
