Building Information Modelling (BIM)
Building information modelling (BIM) is a process of creating and managing information on a construction project across a project lifecycle.
The test project is aimed at assessing the skills of design engineers effective teamwork, the ability to address customer needs, use modern design techniques, find and correct errors in both documentation and work models, work automation, and getting a finished project ready for customer use and providing documentation for construction workers.
BIM technology drastically changes the ways architectural and construction industry work. This requires not only BIM meta skills for existing professions, for example, an architect or a design engineer, but also for the new ones, such as a BIM manager or BIM coordinator.
BIM software helps evaluate carbon footprint of the project before building operations start. Improved urban development technologies help reduce the future building’s energy consumption and carbon emissions by 70%.
In construction, Building Information Modelling could be used to monitor the productivity of the process. BIM brings the opportunity to try out solutions prior to designing and building a physical structure.
An estimated 97% of construction managers are expected to use BIM for at least some of their projects in the next five years.
