Webinar details

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a revolutionary methodology that has transformed the way construction projects are conceptualized. BIM can be utilized throughout the entire lifecycle of a building project, starting from the initial design phase to the demolition phase. However, there are still many untapped possibilities for BIM applications in the market. Many professionals across the globe are still restricted to using BIM-based tools only for generating virtual models for geometric representation and rendering purposes.

Our webinar aims to highlight the diverse applications of BIM throughout the entire lifecycle of a building project, right from conception to demolition. Discover how BIM can streamline data into a three-dimensional model, providing ample opportunities for advanced analysis and simulations. Besides, we will explore how this innovative methodology can help professionals reduce costs, identify design errors, and effectively manage building timelines, besides being an effective tool to achieve sustainability in construction.
