BIM allows software systems effectively to connect the architectural model of a building with various other systems that play a role in completing the project. These include structures, surveying, measurements, costings, planning, energy efficiency, etc. The co-ordination of these different parts or activities of the project are made possible through a cloud-based BIM systems, which… read more »

Ten Steps to successfully Implementing BIM

BIM doesn’t work—people make it work. There is no way you can load BIM onto a machine, plop anyone in front of the machine, and hope that it will somehow make your life easier. In fact, it will make it harder for a while; let everyone know this. BIM is an investment. The easiest way… read more »

BIM and Construction Management

BIM is a revolutionary technology and process that has transformed the way buildings are designed, analyzed, constructed, and managed. Currently, an overwhelming amount of information is available about BIM, such as theories on where BIM can go, the vast array of tools available, and how BIM seems to be the answer to all the problems… read more »


The building industry is not great at accepting change and as Information Modeling makes its way onto the scene, people don’t realise this is a tool not only used in the design phase, but can be carried on to the construction and management phases of the project. There are three main stages of a building… read more »

BIM in an International context

This section explores the current status of the implementation of BIM as it occurs throughout the world and with that, we’ll be making a tour of the various countries that have already adopted strategies for the use of BIM systems. The following is broad view of the international context of the use of BIM and… read more »

BIM Responsibilties

This summary role description has been prepared for use on projects where appointments are based on individual scopes of service. Note: The role of Information Management is expected to be delivered as part of an existing appointment by a capable resource.The role of Information Management will be incorporated into a wider appointment and the obligations… read more »

BIM Objectives

The main objectives of BIM are as follows: To offer support to investment decisions by comparing functionality, scope and project costs. To offer environmental criteria, allowing for comparative analysis on energy and environmental data, to select design solutions and objectives with which to monitor the operation of the building and its services to users. To… read more »

Understanding BIM

Implementing or understanding BIM in an organization is so much more than choosing the right design software. It’s about educating an entire organization about software tools, processes and workflows to meet stringent standards. Apart from change management it’s  a big challenge. And it gets bigger with the challenge of driving software and process adoption across… read more »

What is BIM

When we define the term, ‘Building Information Modelling’, we are able to identify which areas are covered by this new paradigm in construction and what advantages BIM gives us over conventional methodologies. In this section, we will also investigate the development of BIM since its inception, and explore how both technology and society have evolved… read more »

History of BIM

Since its beginnings, the engineering sector has represented its work by means of highly accurate, painstakingly hand drawn graphics. It was not until 1955 that the sector developed the first graphic system that would collect entered data and represent it on a computer screen. This was at the Lincoln Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of… read more »
