What is BIM?
Building Information Modeling
BIM is an intelligent virtual model-based process that provides insight to help you plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure.
Benefits of using BIM
Streamline communication with 3D visualization among all stakeholders for quick decision making during design and pre-construction phase.
Eliminate RFI's work Stoppages and rework by checking the accuracy and completeness of drawings before starting construction on-site/off-site.
Improving quality by producing accurate shop drawings directly from the 3D BIM model which could also be used for pre-fabrication.
Pre-constrion and pre-fabrication reviews mean better use of manpower, better quality construction and reduced rework and wastage, all of which translate into lower cost.
Detail Material BOQ and shop drawings with 3D visualization enable a better look at 'the big picture' and aid in the review, scheduling and monitoring of each project.
