Across the world, Building Information Modelling (BIM) is becoming a crucial and even a mandated process to ensure the planning, design, and construction of buildings is highly efficient and collaborative.
Building Information Modelling is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings. It facilitates a highly collaborative process between multiple stakeholders where every element of a building can be detailed in one shared model. This model can be used for analysis to explore design options and to create visualisations that help stakeholders understand the building concept. The model is then used to generate the design documentation for construction.
BIM not only allows design and construction teams to work more capture the data they create during the process to benefit operations and maintenance activities. This is why BIM mandates are increasing across the globe. In the UK, our government has taken on a very active roll, aiming to enable this market shift by priming the industry with investment through the Industrial Strategy. When the UK mandated BIM for all public sector projects it had a catalytic effect on the whole sector globally.
