What is BIM?


BIM or Building Information Modelling is the name given to the collaborative process for construction design (the BIM model) based on shared data. Products included in the design are shown as 3D model objects ( BIM objects) In simple terms BIM can be seen as a process which results in a 3D model with a spreadsheet of structured data sitting underneath it.

3D Models

A 3D-model only contains geometry -shapes and dimensions. Where as a 3D BIM-model contains all information in terms of architecture, installation and construction specifications required to design, plan and develop buildings and infrastructure.

Revit Software

Revit is software ( 3D modelling tool) for BIM, used by architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, designers and contractors. Revit provides professionals with tools to create intelligent 3D models which can then be used to design, build, and produce construction credentials.

COBie Standard Data

The Construction-Operations Building information exchange (COBie) is an international standard which defines information for managed assets delivered as part of a construction project and is used to document the data for the building information modelling (BIM) process.

In 2016 the UK Government's mandated for all centrally procured public sector projects to use Level 2 as part of its Construction Strategy. However, BIM is also being widely adopted in the private sector.

BIM UK government’s 2011 Construction Strategy defined 4 levels of BIM. This was done to help clients and suppliers understand how BIM and digital technologies should be used on projects.

These levels were designed to support industry to create specific capacity at each level and to ensure appropriate standards for effective and fair procurement.
