BIM (Building Information Modeling)?
BIM is the result of a set of integrated processes and workflows that gather information generated and maintained throughout the life cycle of a building, which is explained in a Building Information Model - BIM (Building Information Modeling).
It is a process that essentially involves three-dimensional modelling and the combination of information on the building and equipment, creating an integrated digital model of all disciplines and covering the entire building lifecycle. Parametric 3D modelling and knowledge of interoperability between tools and processes themselves are essential features that support the concept of BIM.
The applicability of BIM allows making early decisions having to support the model and the collaborative process, built by different actors in the project phases and work (architects, engineers, estimators, builders), constituting itself a resource for sharing information a reliable source for making decisions on a building during its life cycle, reducing design errors incompatibilities.
BIM allows us to:
Visualize the construction site.
Optimize the construction schedule.
Reduce project risk by getting requests for more enlightening information
Project analysis to identify incompatibilities 'clash identification' between specialties
Quantification of building components throughout the life cycle, from the design to its use.
Enhance the use of tools and solutions for analysis and design more sustainable buildings.
