BIM and related technology

BIM DimensionsBuilding Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D+ model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.

WP: BIM = Building Information Modelling. BIM is a game changing evolution in the way the ‘built environment’ is designed, built and maintained through life to the eventual decommissioning and either renovation or demolition of the structure. this White Paper offers a concise overview of the technology.

UK BIM implementation map. The Roadmap is owned by BSI committee B555 Construction design, modelling and data exchange, which brings together leading institutions and organisations around the BIM agenda to support the delivery of clear guidance to the UK industry dedicated to providing and operating built assets.
