What is Building Information Modelling (BIM)?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process to design, create and maintain a project with the use of an intelligent 3D model. BIM is about everyone in a project understanding the building through the use of a digital model. BIM contributes to structured project information, improved integration, reducing costs and faster construction times.

Why BIM?

In May 2011, the government announced in the Construction Strategy the requirement of collaborative 3D BIM to be used on projects by 2016. The main target for the UK Government is to reduce “the capital cost and the carbon burden from the construction and operation of the built environment by 20%”. Fundamentally the adoption of BIM to provide a more economical way of working through all stages of a project.
