Building information modeling (BIM) is the process of creating, collating and managing the information for a construction project from start to finish. It enables architects, engineers and contractors to be fully equipped with the knowledge they need to manage construction. Employing point cloud and 3D laser scanning software, BIM produces 3D models and digital representations of every aspect of the build, from planning and design to execution and operations.
During the initial stages of a project, a process is developed whereby the design information is coordinated and conveyed amongst the team in a digestible format and efficient manner. The information derived from the 3D model gives direction to the project and ensures that those involved in construction and operations can coordinate their design in accordance with the data supplied.
As the project enters construction, the information provided can be used to plan and execute the build more efficiently. If revisions are required, any changes made will follow the process outlined by the team, to ensure transparency.
Building information modeling is the process of 3D modeling and managing information throughout the entire construction project and Revit is a software package that enables the creation of a 3D model.
There are a number of different tools that leverage building information modeling. A few of the most popular software are:
BIM stands for Building Information Modelling and is the digital representation of the layout and characteristics of a construction project - from planning through to execution and can then be utilised further to manage the ongoing management of buildings.
The cost of a BIM ready 3D model is subject to the size and specifications of the project, including the time spent on site gathering the data and measurements which will help create the model.
CAD refers to computer-aided design, supporting the design process of a project, whereas in comparison, BIM helps support the creation and management of information throughout the entire lifetime of a project.
For the BIM community, Revit 2022 offers more workflow solutions such as better route analysis, improvements to generative design and phased parameters in a view filter.
