Top ten benefits of BIM (Building information modelling)
As you might already know, BIM stands for Building Information Modeling. As a cornerstone of the Construction sector, BIM enables users to compile information on every aspect of a building. Using BIM, you can access every step involved in a project’s lifecycle—from time to cost to sustainability—in a single, integrated tool. However, there are countless benefits of BIM that you might not be aware of.
4. Step-by-step process
5. Improved productivity
6. Supports energy efficiency
7. Better coordination
10. On the go
An added benefit of BIM is that you can take your projects and models with you wherever you go. What exactly do we mean by this? BIM is available whenever you need it through BIM360 and various other software platforms. Everything is attached to a detailed database, so you have an overwhelming amount of information at your fingertips.
You can then access this vast amount of information at any time, on any device. It doesn’t matter if you’re having a look to see if your project is properly coordinated or if you’re giving a client a quick preview of your project—everything is right there for you to use. Coordination is, therefore, much easier between teams and clients.
