BIM

DEFINITION: Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project lifecycle. One of the key outputs of this process is the Building Information Model, the digital description of every aspect of the built asset.

BIM has been advocated for its potential delivery of more innovative, cost-efficient buildings through more integrated information and collaboration. Creating a digital Building Information Model enables those who interact with the building to optimize their actions, resulting in a greater whole life value for the asset.
