Building Information Modeling - Why BIM?
August 20, 2010

Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology and its implementation process have rapidly advanced in both sophistication and use so that the business case for its adoption is no longer challenged. National government agencies such as the Government Services Administration (GSA) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), state governments in Texas and Wisconsin, and local governments in California for Community Colleges are requiring BIM for all of their publically funded facilities.graham replica watches Colleges such as University of Indiana have published BIM Guidelines for the prospective consultants wishing to win facilities projects. State agencies such as the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) are developing their own BIM Guidelines for its forthcoming projects.

 Why BIM?

         Industry adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is rapidly accelerating, driving enhanced visualization, simulation and performance analysis capabilities. Designers can unlock the value in product information assets and greatly improve return on investment. With BIM, designers can make faster decisions, better document projects, and evaluate sustainable building and infrastructure design alternatives using analysis to predict performance characteristics before breaking ground.

           BIM indexes and categorizes content from a wide variety of sources including data from product libraries, and existing building product libraries.

         BIM is an integrated process built on coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through construction and into operations. With BIM, designers now work collaboratively using models created from consistent, reliable design information - product information assets. By adopting BIM, architects, engineers, contractors, and owners can easily: fake luxury watch

  • Create coordinated digital design information and documentation.
  • Use that information to more accurately visualize, simulate, and analyze   performance, appearance, and cost.
  • Deliver the project faster, more economically, and with the potential for reduced environmental impact.
  • Integrate sustainability and maintenance practices with geo-positioned equipment and systems.
  • Provide risk management from physical security to life safety to systems operability and maintenance.rolex replica watches
