BIM (Building Information Modelling) offers a collaborative working framework between different disciplines involved with any new building project. From initial architecture and engineering concepts through to construction, project management and maintenance BIM creates an effective and holistic management foundation.
BIM allows buildings to be designed, costed, procured, built and delivered using dynamic models to ensure they are delivered on budget and to specification. This approach helps to avoid unplanned clashes with services in buildings, problems that are usually resolved on site when all parties are gathered together. Using BIM essentially reduces waste and improves efficiency.
