Building Information
Modeling (BIM)

Governments around the world are mandating BIM processes for projects, and it is quickly becoming the standard for private architecture, engineering, and construction firms as they reap the benefits of improved communication, coordinate, and collaboration.

What is it?

Building Information Modelling essentially attaches dynamic information and collaboration capabilities to 3D building design. This gives design and construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings. This includes applications within commercial and residential buildings, municipal infrastructure, manufacturing, and industrial process equipment.
