About Building Information Modeling
BIM is an integrated process for exploring a project's key physical and functional characteristics digitally-before it's built. This vastly improves project understanding and allows for predictable outcomes. Because of this, BIM is becoming the standard way of working in the building industry. The visibility that this way of working brings about enables all project team members to stay coordinated, improve accuracy, reduce waste, and make informed decisions earlier in the process-helping to ensure the project's success.
