Building information modelling (BIM) is revolutionising design and how we deliver projects. For architects, BIM has the potential to optimise our creativity while reducing risk within the design and construction process, thus giving us a more significant level of control over design and ultimately the realisation of the project.
BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture and design professionals the insight and tools to plan more efficiently, design, construct, and control projects. BIM refers to a set of technologies, processes, and policies that allow various stakeholders to collaboratively design, engineer, and develop a vessel in the virtual space, forming a reliable basis for decisions throughout the life cycle of the project. BIM allows for the visualization and simulation of the various facets of a space, providing an understanding of the design and the feasibility of modelled proposals. It also supports a shared understanding of the integration of solutions through the 3D model, which can facilitate cooperation among the project team and eliminates the risk of common errors in the interpretation of 2D drawings.
